1. Dear Curves
This brand sells amazing patterns and prints made from custom African fabrics. What’s the cool factor? New creations are made frequently, some made-to-order, which is comparable to couture!

2. Kiyonna
This USA brand offers sizing from 10-32—and it’s figure-flattering and fabulous! I’ve seen awesome separates, dresses, swimwear, and even wedding possibilities.

3. Lala Belle
This brand is Australian-based, but has a runway-to-real-world flair! If you always wanted to entertain your inner Carrie from Sex in the City or just amp up your fashionista esteem, try this new brand out!

Curvy Note: Etsy, the popular E-commerce site has become a huge resource for the plus-size market. The site is a global market place for everything handmade or vintage. Some of my favorite finds include: Demestiks NewYork, youtheary khmer, JIBRI and Tamar Ziv.
