Online shopping could be convenient but there is a big problem when it comes to choosing sizes. Most of the clothes shown in the online shopping platforms are for a certain body type and the models who don them are also a certain perfect figure. So you can never be sure if what you see online will fit you just as well. And shopping online is a nightmare for people with a plus size body frame. Since the models used for the attire display are mostly slim, one can never be sure how the attire will look on other body types. But clothing brands PrettyLittleThings is winning all the praises for showcasing their collection in two body types. Asos Launches Wheelchair-Friendly Jumpsuit; Fashion Company Gets Into Social Media’s Good Books, Once Again!

While one model is standard slim size, another one is for the plus size. The initiative is naturally appreciated by women on social media, for bringing in inclusivity of women with plus-size. PrettyLittleThings is getting all the wonderful appreciation online. 5 Plus-Sized Body Positive Instagrammers Who Give Us Major Beauty Goals.

Every clothing website should be listening 

Wanting more body types

Why isn't this a norm already?

More representation needed

While there are clear fans out there of the move, some have asked to be even more inclusive. People have suggested to include more skin tones, people with disabilities, shorter models as well. But this is indeed a good start that has impressed people already. Maybe all the clothing brands can take the hint? It is good to see at least one site out there is considering different body types.
