Plus Size Organic Clothing

Since the world of organic fashion is a fairly new niche, there hasn't been alot available in the way of Plus Sizes. I have searched around for various stores who can supply this need - since obviously people of ALL sizes would like to contribute to the fair trade & organic clothing movement. Here are a few websites I found with the help of http://www.lovetoknow.com/ :
"Rawganique.com
Rawganique offers a selection of organic hemp clothing in plus sizes. Items found in their online catalog include:
Unisex low-rise hemp jeans
Unisex hemp or linen yoga karate pants
Unisex hemp yoga pants
Euro-style hemp jacket
Organic cotton work overalls
Organic Pima cotton underwear
Women's relaxed hemp shirt
Audrey Hemp wedding dress and evening gown

Generous Fashions
Generous Fashions motto is "living life large." Their large selection of plus size clothing includes some organic selections:
Rose Collection – Organic rayon and satin
Organic Wearever (shirt dress)
Early Evening Batik Collection (Long)
Mixed Bouquet Jacket/Blouse Collection (Teal)
"V" Caftan Top

SoulFlower.com
Soul Flower has been around since 1999 when it started as a boutique specializing in "phunky" clothing and other gift items. Today, it sells strictly online or through their mail order catalog. The selections are reminiscent of the "hippy" era:
Tier Tie-Dyed Skirt in greens purples and blues
Indian Kurta Plus Size in beige, black, white, or olive
Plus Size Patchworked Wrap Skirt in multicolor

Woman Within
Woman Within's online shop offers speed, privacy, and among their many styles a small selection of organic fashions:
Organic cotton stretch knit pants
Organic cotton stretch knit flyaway cardigan
Organic cotton stretch knit tank "

Yes ! The organic clothing industry needs to get on the Plus Size HIP tip ! Here's some other's i have raked up tonight- http://www.cowswithguns.com/Ordering.html : a little strange, but some funny organic shirts like "smashing TV" come in XXXL sizes.
http://astore.amazon.com/xxxl-20/detail/B000PCPV84 : Not so exciting, but it's an organic Tee that comes in many colors, and XXXL sizes.
Another option would be the organic designers on ETSY who will do custom orders to fit your size!

This Website has fair trade clothing, in sizes up to 2X (or 20). A little hippy-ish, but maybe better then some :)

I opened an organic fashion clothing store several years ago and it is painful not being able to get natural fiber clothing to fit real women! I swear this stuff is manufactured by anorexic forest nymphs. Their version of an extra large is a size 12!
If you know of anywhere I can place a wholesale order for organic fashion, please let me know!

Thanks Oko, I will check out the articles. In the mean time, I am talking to my suppliers and giving them feed back on the lines I carry. I keep telling them to go big or stay home so to speak. They are under the misconception that there is a limited demand for plus size organic clothing. I will continue to nag them until someone listens.

I would just *die* if I found cute plus size organic clothing along the lines of okobox's stuff, at my local stores.
Because I personally like to shop local and avoid the monetary and ecological cost of shipping things across country.
Though I have been *really* tempted to buy the "love me two times" dress....

Hey Nonya!

it would be so awesome to not only have eco fashion available everywhere, but in a realistic range of sizes. One great thing about the Love Me Two Times Dress on The Oko Box is that the designer Andrea will make it to your EXACT measurements, if you put them in the "notes" section when you order. That dress in particular is super ecological because all the cotton is locally grown milled, woven, sewn and dyed within this region, and I always send Oko Box Packages through USPS mail since it is going to everyone's house everyday anyway. :)
