In the midst of the #BlackLivesMatter and #PullUpOrShutUp uprisings, demanding respect, support, and acknowledgement of Black people, here at The Curvy Fashionista (a Black owned and operated company) want to add to the various resources that you can know and use. In this case? The indie Black plus size designers who have pushed plus size fashion to where it is today.

You see, we must acknowledge and support these Black plus size designers in the fashion space. Because they are the ones who have challenged status quos, given us the fashion that had been lacking, and have redefined what plus size fashion really looks like.

On top of everything else?

We also have to acknowledge that the growth of plus size fashion has happened off the backs of Black women.

Especially now, during a pandemic that is decimating our health and economy. For these brands, we must make sure that these Black plus size designers emerge stronger on the other side of this.

We must.

So, taking the lead from Stylish Curves, we had to fashion our own list!

We have rounded up over 40+ indie and Black plus size designers (not retailers, brands, inclusive brands, or boutique owners, this is for another article) and Indie inclusive brands that we must support!

Looking to support new Black plus size designers? We have rounded up over 25 plus size designers who are giving you all the fashion and style options!

How about this list of Black plus size designers?!

What makes this list even more impactful is how they consistently deliver on the list of things that show how a plus size brand can win with us. They give us options beyond a 3X, they showcase and boldly use visibly plus size models, and innovate, consistently. 

In the past, we have shown the light on plus size boutique owners, brands, and retailers to know, even broken down a few options in lounge wear, plus size lingerie and swim wear.
