Since we first took a look at plus size alternative clothing a few years ago the industry has caught up with us, they've listened to their customers and have begun to offer a broader range of sizes across their range of designs - meaning that everyone can look fabulous, no matter what their dress size.

You only need to take a quick look around at some of the alternative fashion industries leading brands to see that things are moving in the right direction, with labels embracing choice and expanding their ranges to offer you a wonderful selection of designs and styles to shop from that go beyond a mere size 16.

Shop alternative.

For those of us that love each and every alternative style there's a great range of choice to shop from online. We already rejoiced at the addition of plus size clothing at alternative retailers Soho's in our previous plus size fashion feature, so we were pleased to see that they've continued expanding their offering of plus sizes in their web store as well as in their Liverpool, Shrewsbury & Chester shops, going up to a size 26.

Following suit, e-tailers Attitude Clothing have also expanded their range online, now offering a broad range of clothing from tops, to dresses, trousers and more, available up to a size 22.

Here's hoping that it won't be too long till we see even more plus size designs available to shop from.
