In the realm of plus size clothing, finding some flattering organic styles is like finding a needle in a hay stack... especially since style is so individual and plus size eco clothing is rare. I have written two other posts about plus size organic clothing (one about Blue Fish Organics, and one from LoveToKnow which has mostly outdated links now). I am happy to say that my search is never ending and I have come up with something a little more elegant, flattering and way less crunchy then before - so if you happen to not be a hippie, this is for you!
Diane Kennedy is a plus size eco designer based in Canada who is making luxurious bamboo, soy, organic cotton and tencel clothing for women who wear larger sizes. Her green designs are cute, hip, flowy and made to flatter a full figure- the kind of clothes you can wear day, night, and even to work. Her designs were so sought after, that the demand for her to carry all sizes has now extended her fit from small to 3X (3-22).
Then there is designer Saffrona who has started an eco line called MEWV, who carries sizes XS-4X (0-28). Her eco designs are not only elegant, but hip and downright adorable(see pictures above). She also carries plus size evening wear, in addition to her flirty summer frocks. Her fabrics are soy, tencel, organic cotton, bamboo and hemp - some blended with lycra for extra stretch and durability.
YAY! Now we are really starting to get somewhere...
I promise to keep looking and always post any plus size organic clothing finds. In the meantime check out Diane and Saffrona, who are making an effort to change the organic fashion industry, so all sizes can be available.
