I was asked this question a couple of days ago from someone who has never had a weight problem & was also a lot shorter than me & when I told her I was a size 14-16 (the same size as her), she couldnโ€™t believe I could be.โฃ
โฃ
So I did some more research to find out what is considered plus size in Australia. ๐Ÿ™„โฃ
โฃ
The average size of Australian women is size 14-16 (Iโ€™m average ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป) & according to the information I found, โ€˜plus size garmentsโ€™ are considered to be size 16 & upward.โฃ
โฃ
Which means the average Aussie woman is bordering on plus size. Yet, the average Aussie retail store starts at a size 6/8 and doesnโ€™t go higher than a 14?.?.? โฃ

No wonder majority of us women have a hard time trying to find clothes that will fit. We have dedicated brands for women who are larger than the size average & thats a minimal amount.โฃ
โฃ
The Australian plus-size clothing market has been growing since at least 1994,..............its 2021 now & we still havenโ€™t moved forward when it comes to the curvier lady. โฃ
โฃ
We notice the difference with different brands with the clothes we resell. With the inconsistency of measurements itโ€™s why we measure every item individually & not just show the sizing guide from that particular brand.โฃ
