Is Plus Size Fashion MissGuided?

You have probably seen online today that online retailer MissGuided launched their first plus size range. I have to admit that before last week I hadn't heard of the clothing website, mainly because their main range seems to stop at a size 14, with a handful of pieces in a size 16.

Their Curvy+ range launched today and has been met with love. The range (which stocks sizes 16-24) seems to be a good extension and representation of their existing range, which is always good news!



Now, you could say it is because I am bitter that I can't fit into their Oxblood Gilet, but I am disappointed that the range stops at a size 24. I guess seeing as they previously did up to a size 14/16 it is a massive step in the right direction but I want to see retailers taking leaps! 

Now a days, buying a size 24 dress online is not a novelty. We have an abundance of retailers who now stock plus size collections up to a size 24/26. Yes, some of the MissGuided pieces are brilliantly fashionable but who decided that fashion stopped at a size 24?

With retailers like MissGuided shouting from the roof top for days before their collection that they're launching such an exciting product - I would love for it to be something more than we normally see.


I honestly think people who believe plus size fashion should stop at a size 24 are misguided. There are so many bigger women who are crying out for pieces like this, we just need a retailer to listen!

I love the MissGuided plus size range and I can see why it has been so well received, but I would love to see more! 

What do you think?

  1. I definitely think that they should include sizes beyond 24, but it's so great that they've finally introduced a plus size range. I love Missguided's clothes, but being a size 16, it was a bit of a nightmare when I saw that the majority of things only go up to 14. I'm definitely going to have to take a look at the new range :) x
