These size-inclusive brands are making it easier than ever to shop ethically!

For many plus-sized women, it can be very difficult to find ethical and sustainable places to shop from that offer size-inclusive options. Many sustainable brands unfortunately only go up to a size XL, luckily, we've rounded up a full list of amazing brands for you that are inclusive, sustainable, and ethical! Whether you're looking for jeans, a dress, loungewear, activewear, underwear, or just everyday clothing, we've got an option for any of the above!

We scoured the internet to find the most inclusive, eco-friendly and affordable options on the market, however, please note that generally sustainable and ethical brands do tend to be a bit more expensive. This is due to their ethical practices, use of high-quality materials, and paying their workers fair, living wages. Spending a little extra money on these clothing items will be worth the investment in the long run, as the quality of the clothing will far outlast that of a fast-fashion alternative! So what are you waiting for?! Keep reading to find some amazing ethical, sustainable and size-inclusive clothing brands that you'll feel good about supporting!
