We have been running our on-line fashion boutique specifically for plus sized women for two years now, we are based in Australia and we have seen the evolution of styles and fashion over that time.
We are avid followers of shows like Project Runway and although they mostly use US sizes 2 through to 6 models, they have also worked on ‘real’ size styles, it just shows you the fashion industry is slowly changing its perception of today’s curvaceous women.

There are so many great designer brands available now both on-line and in retail stores, that plus size women, of which I am one, all over Australia can find a style of clothing that suits our chosen look, and feel great when we wear them. At The Unique You we will always be striving to bring you the best possible plus size fashion available for a reasonable price. We will only offer you quality designer brand clothing from reputable Australian owned companies and where possible, clothing made in Australia for plus size Australian women. Even if it’s not in our store simply ask and we will do our best to source and stock a brand that you love.

I would wear a sweater or something with sleeves that covered me to at least mid-upper arm. And let me tell you, being hot as fuck is not comfortable.
But one day, about 3 years ago, I decided it was time to conduct a social experiment. My theory was that if I wore a sleeveless garment, that people would stare at me in disgust, which would derail my journey toward self-acceptance. So, in an effort to break free from societal judgement, I did the unthinkable. I wore a tanktop in public.
