For as long as we can remember, women’s fashion has been divided by terms like “plus size”,“petite”, “misses” and more. What’s wrong with fashion built for everyone? Absolutely nothing, and with the rise of size-inclusive fashion lines it looks like designers are beginning to agree.
“All size” lines, unsurprisingly, are for all sizes and designed to make women feel confident. We’ve compiled our list of favorite fashion lines whose goal it is to bring style to everyone, no matter what your tag says.
