15 Black-Owned Size-Inclusive Clothing Brands For Your Most Stylish Summer Yet

It's a pretty well-known fact that the average American woman wears a size 16 or 18. Yes, most mainstream brands and mass retailers cater to sizes below that — both in their external media and what they are actually selling.

Size-inclusive brands aren't totally new, but what happened when brands catered towards curvy women started to come about is that they were really only developing timeless essentials — incredibly important, but still missing the mark for stylish, fashion-forward women who like bold statement pieces and want to keep up with what's happening on the most happening runways.

Brace yourself for highly-curated collections of wearable art with bespoke, hand-detailed touches.
