Ask a plus-size shopper how the majority of their shopping experiences with traditionally popular fashion brands has been, and odds are, it hasn't been great. Despite taking steps in the right direction, the fashion industry has still largely excluded plus-size shoppers from the conversation — a nonsensical choice given that almost 70% of women in the U.S. wear a size 14 or above. These Black-owned plus-size clothing brands, however, have long carved a space where plus-size shoppers can confidently find the fashion-forward, modern items they want and deserve.

In addition to plus-size consumers having fewer options available to them when shopping, the options that have traditionally been available tend to be somewhat basic or matronly and lacking in the trendy silhouettes widely accessible to straight-size shoppers. The plus-size clothing brands below are filling that necessary hole the fashion industry has created — and doing it with high-quality, affordable items that make plus-size shoppers feel seen and sexy.

From super chic bodycon dresses and matching sets to tees and lingerie, these Black-owned plus-size fashion brands are more than deserving a permanent spot in your wardrobe. We'll continue updating this list regularly with even more emerging and established brands creating fire plus-size clothing.

We only include products that have been independently selected by Elite Daily's editorial team. However, we may receive a portion of sales if you purchase a product through a link in this article.
