These brands are bringing body positivity to a whole new level by creating inclusive, sustainable clothing for all sizes.
Body positivity is not just a trendy word. It has many cultural roots that go back to the 1960s fat acceptance movement. It has gained momentum over the past decade with brands championing similar themes within their own campaigns.
Although some brands have been criticised for making body positivity a performative marketing strategy, it is a huge victory that people of all sizes can see themselves in media through their favorite brands. Some companies are still determined to spread the message of body positivity to customers.
Let’s take a look at some brands that are actively celebrating and reshaping people of all sizes.
Summersalt is all about comfort and fit. This means that they can represent all types of bodies.
The swimwear campaign for 2021 features models who are plus-size, disabled and post-partum. In their campaigns, they also feature plus-size BIPOC women. This is a bold move as many brands tend to only display white models in larger sizes. The models include LGBTQ+ people, those with chronic illnesses, entrepreneurs, and body liberation activists. This represents body positivity that transcends body size and shape.
Thinx is a global advocate for equal menstrual rights. EveryBody, their new program promotes education on sex and reproductive rights. They work together with Alliance of Border Collaboratives and Girls Inc. to provide incontinence and menstrual products to those who are most in need.
Periods have been so stigmatized that it’s difficult to remember them as an integral part of a normal body process. Thinx wants to change that conversation. Thinx uses inclusive language such as “people with periods” in order to include transgender and non-binary women who have menstrual cycles. This inclusive approach removes some of the discomforts associated with buying products for women of all genders and ensures that more people worldwide have access to period products.
Naomi and Fran founded TomboyX after they couldn’t find any gender-affirming clothing for themselves. Clothing is one of many visible ways that transgender people and people of non-binary genders express their identity. TomboyX fulfills this need by offering a variety of sizes, up to 6XL, to make sure everyone feels comfortable in their own skin.
Although TomboyX clothing doesn’t cater to all genders, it is a non-binary clothing brand that helps trans and nonbinary individuals who are experiencing gender dysphoria to accept and love their bodies.
Plus BKLYN sells sizes up to 32, and also has thrifted items. They aim to make larger sizes, which are often more expensive than standard sizes, more affordable and accessible.
Plus BKLYN was the first to bring plus-size fashion into a physical location. Most plus-size brands are only available online. Alexis Krase, the founder of Plus BKLYN opened New York’s first boutique for plus-sized customers in 2016. This was to give plus-sized people a better shopping experience and allow them to try on clothes in person. Krase stocks plus-size clothing that fits the body.

Universal Standard sells sizes 00 to 40 and offers unique clothing and materials. They empower diverse communities by allowing them to have a say in the design of their clothes and proving that fashion doesn’t have to be exclusive for one body type. They are also changing the way sizing works. Unlike most brands, their medium size is an 18 which is a better representation of what average women wear.
Universal Standard also offers Fit Liberty, which allows customers to buy in their current size. They will send customers the exact same garment in their new size if that size changes.

Yogamatters, a UK-based Yoga apparel brand, focuses on making Yoga accessible to all people and cultures. Hayley Benoit from Luupe, who photographed their Eco Clothing Collection recently, shares her experiences working with them.
“I was thrilled to see the creative brief. It connected with me and what I want to portray in my imagery, which is healthy living and body positivity. While I have photographed many models over the years, none of them reflected me as a woman. Yogamatters chose strong, confident women who were happy in their skins – something I long to emulate when I wear yoga clothes. As someone who has practiced Yoga for many years, I felt very body conscious. Everyone in my class had a different body type. It was a joy to photograph women I could relate with and proudly champion women of all shapes and sizes.
