Ladies, we’re all familiar with this particular nightmare: finding a super pretty dress but having the staff tell you that they don’t have your size in stock. It’s insanely frustrating and upsetting – especially if the item is on sale – and it’s a real problem that many plus-size women face constantly.
But that shouldn’t be the case.
Celebrate your curves by shopping at these plus-size boutiques in Singapore, which stock sizes up to UK 28.
Love Pretty Plus mainly operates online. But if you want to try on the clothes and make sure they fit perfectly before purchasing, you’ll be glad to know that private fitting sessions are available – simply Whatsapp 90255421 to book an appointment.
Check out their Missus Maxi Romper ($49.90) in teal or red for something that gives off resort-holiday vibes or go for the Ruffle Cherry Top ($39.90) if you like cute fruit prints.

Other than the usual plus-size clothing such as the Floral Maxi Dress ($59.90) and the Checkered Spag Dress With Shoulder Tie ($49.90), Big & Beautiful also sells plus-size lingerie.
They’re rather affordably priced, at bottoms starting from only $7.90 each, and there are tons of comfortable bras that will actually fit – you’ll want to get more than a few for some much-needed support.

For a sleek look, get the Off Shoulder Ruffles Empire Cut Dress ($69.90) in either a striped or polka dotted print. But if your heart’s screaming “go big or go home”, splurge on the Dark Blue Knit Dress with Jacquard Floral Skirt ($149.90) which has a one-of-a-kind print.

The Amber Loft was created for petite women on the fuller side since plus-size clothing from popular foreign brands tends to be too large for the Asian frame. All pieces are designed in-house and made to flatter your body.
Go for the Rebecca Fit and Flare Dress in Black ($79) which has tulip sleeves and a simple but classy beaded neckline. There are pockets skillfully sewn into the dress for you to bring along your knick-knacks without having to carry a bag.
For a bolder look, check out the Carmen Ruffle Dress in Red Leopard ($69). Its bright colour, loud leopard print and ruffled sleeves make it an eye-catching outfit – with a faux wrap skirt that emphasises your shapely figure.
Simply Curvy sells trendy and reasonably-priced Muslimah fashion which are plus-size friendly. From Jubahs to Abayas in all sorts of elegant colours and materials, they have it all.
Stock up on some affordable under scarves here and pick up some colourful shawls while you’re at it.

It’s the 21st Century and fashion is an important form of expression – people should not face restrictions just because they’re not averaged-sized. Nobody should be penalised for simply being different. Regardless of shape or size, we should all be able to buy and wear clothes that make us feel confident.
