Invest in Yourself: 5 Must-Have Designer Plus Size Styles in up to Size 5X

More and more plus size fashion designers are emerging onto the scene.

While many retailers and brands stop at a size 24, there are plus size fashion designers who are not afraid to design for larger sizes, with some offering up to a size 5X and even offering custom fitting pieces.

While their prices may be higher than your favorite fast fashion retailers, these pieces are an investment in you. We are all worthy of fashion that’s high-quality and great-fitting and to acquire that, we have to be open to investing in ourselves and giving our money to those who truly are passionate about designing in our sizes. These are pieces that will last you for years and hold up well in wear and style.

I am a self-proclaimed budgetnista so I personally commit to investing in one designer piece a season. I choose a piece that I know I will wear from season to season because then you will get your money’s worth.

I always put money away in my “fashion” fund — could be $5 here and $10 there. Before I know it, I have enough to purchase that designer piece I have been eyeing. As a size 26/28 woman, I get so happy when I receive a designer style that not only fits me perfectly but will last a long time. It really boosts my confidence.
