Ethical fashion is in no way mainstream yet. While there have been significant strides in the ethical fashion community with brands becoming more accessible and popular there is still quite a way to go.
And when it comes to size even the fast fashion industry still struggles to be inclusive.
Clothes shopping has always been a challenge for me. While I in no way consider myself plus size, I am not a size zero. A lot of brands didn’t even carry my size in store but always offered to “order it in” for me. Which made me feel terrible. I can’t imagine how plus-sized ladies feel.
And in general, it’s just hard to find a size-inclusive brand that doesn’t airbrush their models.
So take an already non-inclusive industry and add it to a not-so-accessible one. It seems pretty daunting.
But there are amazing ethically and sustainable made brands out there who are breaking down these stigmas and making eco-friendly clothing for everyone no matter your shape or size.

10 Size-Inclusive Ethical Fashion Brands:
1. Azura Bay –
Sizes: XS – 2XL
Bras: 28DD – 40H
I’ve always been a fan of Azura bay and everything they have to offer. They’re a curated shop of ethical and sustainable lingerie, loungewear and Pjs based right in my home province!
They use an array of models in all shapes and sizes and offer a really impressive size range when it comes to their pieces.
Sizes: up to 4XL
Hackwith Design House is known for its timeless pieces and classic silhouettes. Their collection includes swimwear, basics, intimates, dresses, and outerwear. It’s basically a one-stop-shop.
And with their dedicated plus-size section, it makes it super easy to find what you’re looking for.
Their pieces are made in small batches in-house in their Minnesota studio.
Sizes: Up to 6XL
Girlfriend Collective is an activewear brand with an amazing array of sizes from XXS to 6XL!
Their clothing is made from recycled water bottles and fishnets and they strongly believe in taking care of the people who make their clothes.
One of my favorite quotes from their site is “We believe health and wellness come in many shapes and sizes, and that representation matters.”
4. Sotela –
Sizes: 0- 30
With a tagline like “radically inclusive clothing made for humans” you know it’s going to be a winner.
They’re a brand for humans, by humans and in doing so they treat the people who make their clothing like humans and pay them a living wage. They also choose fabrics that have a low environmental impact like tencel and linen.
They have jumpsuits, dresses, bottoms and more! Everything the modern woman could ask for. But don’t take my word for it, check out how breathtaking their pieces are for yourself!
5. Diane Kennedy –
Sizes: Up to 3X
Diane Kennedy is another Canadian company. (which I love!) The clothes are designed by Diane herself and made to fit women from size small to 3X!
She doesn’t believe that plus-sized clothing should be compromised in quality and designs all the pieces ethically and sustainably using 100% certified organic bamboo.
6. Symbology Clothing –
Sizes: Up to 3X
Price: $$ – $$$
With dresses, jumpsuits, jackets bottoms and even wedding dresses, symbology is the place to be! Their sizes range up to 3X and they’re ou to “make fair trade sexy”!
The brand merges artisanal fabric techniques with modern, fashion-forward designs to make a truly exclusive style of clothing.
7. Eileen Fisher –
Sizes: Up to 3X
Not only does Eileen Fisher cater towards plus size ladies with up to 3X but they also cater towards petite women with a whole section dedicated just to them! This brand is the definition of a size-inclusive ethical fashion!
Their pieces are gorgeous and crafted fairly with organic and responsible fibers!
8. Elizabeth Suzann –
Sizes: Up to 4XL
Elizabeth Suzann has an array of styles for all different body types. Their clothing is made mindfully and they pride themselves in reducing waste and creating clothing that’s meant to last a lifetime.
I’m so excited about each and every one of these brands and how they’re not only caring for the environment but about the people making and buying their clothes. Seriously, it’s so cool to see such vast brands in the ethical space!
