We all know that plus size clothing doesn't always have as many options as we would like, especially if you're above a size 22/24; where options get much more sparse.
That said, plus size fashion definitely has improved over recent years and it's worth celebrating this! Many brands are starting to offer a wider range of choice, and I really hope that 2019 this trend continues! However, we're still not at a stage we should/could be, so it's worth considering what you can do to dress exactly how you would like, no matter your size.
One of the biggest trends I have seen recently is people ignoring gender labels on clothing and wearing exactly what they want - which is great news if you ask me! Men's clothing can sometimes have more generous sizes which is good - but also if you're willing to wear things such as men's t shirts, you open up a whole new range of choice!
One thing I saw taking off last year and I would love to see more of, is people wearing over sized items in a more fitted fashion. If you get an over sized dress in a size 18 then you can often wear this even if you would usually wear something nearer a 22/24. It is all about experimenting and working out what works for you.
I have always championed this and it is something I will continue to do. Clothing sizes aren't always worth paying attention to, especially if you're in a store. Instead try things, see how stretchy they are, how generously sized they are cut and you might just find something that will work, even when you didn't expect it!
