At long last, girls with curves can finally breathe a sigh of relief as new fashion label Curlewis gratifies their sartorial dreams. Crafting stylish resort wear from light linens and breathable cottons, the brand offers up pieces in sizes 16–24. Launched by plus-size fashion blogger, Body Positive and Healthy at Every Size advocate Courtney Dransfield, Curlewis is all about relaxed essentials and neutral tones that make you feel like you’re on holiday.
Think a flattering A-line dress cut from linen, with subtle pleating and generous sleeves; a loose-fitting, short-sleeve T-shirt made from 100 percent organic cotton jersey; natural linen wide-leg pants featuring corsetry details that adjust to your individual body shape; and an A-line skirt featuring bamboo shell buttons and signature contrast stitching. Inspired by Courtney’s own sense of style, the pieces are cut and crafted in a boutique family-owned facility in Bali.
