River Island Launches Plus-Size Options

As a longtime fan of River Island, which is a UK-based fashion retailer, I’ve been anxiously awaiting the launch of their plus-size range from the moment they announced it a few months ago.  However, I must admit that despite my excitement, I was a bit wary about what their collection would include, considering that some designers/brands venture into plus-size fashion with disappointing results – changing hemlines, necklines, silhouettes, etc. to what they think is appropriate for plus-size women.

Thankfully, my concerns were unfounded.  River Island’s plus-size range is off to a great start. Not only have they included stylish basics, beautiful statement pieces and some amazing occasionwear, but they’ve turned to one of my favorite plus-size models, Candice Huffine, to showcase their collection.

While I find myself coveting so many pieces, my favorites are the white tile print shirtdress (below – 1st row – right), printed maxi dress, which is not yet available online (above – 5th row – right) and the blue trench coat (below – 1st row – left) because they offer the versatility I love in my clothing.

River Island’s 75-piece collection is currently available in US sizes 14 – 20 and range in price from $12 – $130.  You may shop their entire collection here.

Thanks for reading.

    I've seen River Island mentioned on Instagram here and there, but I didn't have much familiarity with the brand. Their plus offerings are really cool and fun for spring! The orange printed wrap dress is stunning! 75 pieces? I'll have to hop over to their site and check it out!
