Eco-friendly fashion is a niche, and when you add plus sizes, it becomes a double niche, which makes the search extremely difficult. Sustainable fashion is also ethical fashion, which usually includes a garment design, production, and distribution that reduces harm to people and the environment. We’re here to take the challenge away and make shopping easier.

The term sustainable fashion has been used frequently to describe what and how clothes are made. What exactly is friendly sustainable fashion? It’s a movement and process of fostering change to fashion products and the fashion system towards greater ecological integrity and social justice. Sustainable fashion is also eco-fashion.

Eco-friendly fabrics are those that are safe for the environment, recycled, or biodegradable. The most popular ones are linencotton, wool, hemp, as well as anything that’s recycled and used in a new garment.

Mood Fabrics

Unsustainable fabrics are nylon and polyester, which are made from petrochemical and are non-biodegradable. Rayon is another artificial fiber.

If sustainable fashion is extremely important to you, you need to pay extra attention when shopping online. Take the time to read the garment description and when shopping in-store, read the fabric content tag.

I have always had a love for fashion. It has brought me peace and happiness throughout my life. Who else knows how to dress plus size bodies but a plus-size woman herself! While styling women and cultivating who I want to be in the fashion industry, I've learned that my passion to change the way plus size women think about clothes, to help them break all the rules and love their bodies along the way.

  1. I would like to have more sustainable garments in my wardrobe. Unfortunately, the prices for these materials are way out of my financial means. It’s hard to find inexpensive plus size clothing that isn’t complete trash (style wise or construction). Until the fashion industry decides to make all clothes available in all sizes (and dump the division between standard and plus size) or I win the lottery, (neither is likely to happen in my lifetime), I feel like my clothing choices are severely limited. It’s s depressing. I feel like being fat makes me unworthy to wear certain styles and labels.

  2. WOW thank you so much!!! Shopping sustainably is really important to me, but finding sustainable plus sized clothes is so hard and I found so many fun brands here. I wish they were less expensive, but unfortunately, most sustainable fashion is expensive. I feel fortunate that I have the means to buy sustainable clothing and hope the entire industry will move that direction eventually.
