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!
