5 size-inclusive Australian brands you can shop in store | New Idea

Since the early 2010s, after women began challenging the rigid beauty standards, there has been a huge growth in body-positive campaigns, plus-size influencers, models and a huge variety of size-inclusive brands. Yet most remain as e-commerce businesses with no storefront making it tricky to try before you buy.

So, when you’re in a pinch and need a new outfit, chain store brands you can visit at your local shopping centre do make life easier. Whether it’s a new work outfit, a dress for the weekend or some everyday essentials these popular stores found all over the country can help.

For a long time however they only offered up to sizes 12-14, cutting out the plus-size demographic. Thankfully in recent years, these Australian brands have extended their sizing to be more inclusive and now offer flattering, functional and stylish collections for all shapes and sizes.

Here are 5 stores we can guarantee you’ve walked past multiple times yet might not know they were size-inclusive. Happy shopping!
