Discovering New Brands: Sixteen47

I have to say, I pride myself in having a pretty decent knowledge of plus size brands what is out there to buy. Maybe of you know I have a list here http://ukplussizeretailers.co.uk/ which I work on whenever new brands get announced.

That said, every now and then a new brand hits my radar that I haven't heard of before - and this month it is Sixteen47. The brand was founded by Dawn French and her friend Helen Teague and they go up to a UK size 42, which I was really pleased to read!

The brand itself is not one I think I would wear all of the time, I would say their target audience is the 'older generation', if we were going to insist on putting people in boxes of what they should be wearing however it's nice to know that such a brand exists!!

They were lovely enough to send me this navy buttoned tunic top and it's really nice to wear. I can see this would be something you could throw on to pop into town and so some errands, easy to wear and not something you have to think too much about.
 


The quality of the time is really nice, so I can see why the price points of the garments are where they are at. You can tell by the feel of the material it is a piece to last, rather than the fast fashion so many of us are used to.



I'm really excited to see a UK brand doing up to a size 42, because it's fantastic to see options for people on the larger end of the plus size range.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
