Championing inclusivity: 10 homegrown labels that make stylish, plus-size clothing

Tanvi Gupta
After an unpleasant experience with a popular designer’s store staff, related to a comment on a famous blogger’s size, the latter called out the couturier on social media. This sparked off a debate on inclusivity in the fashion industry, and the harsh judgement plus-sized women are subjected to. Instagram’s favourite fashion critique Diet Sabya started an Instagram thread to highlight brands that make fashionable plus-size clothing. We strongly believe that fashion should be inclusive, and in that spirit, we’ve rounded up 10 of the best body-positive, homegrown labels from Diet Sabya’s comment thread. Read on to know more.
