A new study published in the International Journal of Fashion Design, Technology and Education, suggests that “the average woman now wears between a size 16 and 18, which corresponds to a Women’s Plus size 20W.”
Before this study, most believed the average American woman was a size 14. This, however, is outdated information from over a decade ago. According to the study, “In light of this overlap in sizing classification, frequent reports of female customers being frustrated about the general fit and sizing of clothing is understandable.”
In light of this new finding, we were inspired to provide you with a list of 15 Black owned businesses that cater to plus size women.
