Big-Name Designers With Plus-Size Lines We Love

Sometimes, it feels like plus-size women get the short end of the stick when it comes to fashion. We've talked about those horrible design elements that seem to show up in size 14-plus clothes. And, we've bemoaned the fact that so many brands are dragging their feet (or worse, refusing) to increase their size range. While every brand obviously has the right to limit its sizes, that doesn't mean we have to sit back and settle for clothes that are anything less than amazing.
So, we're excited to tell you about some amazing, forward-thinking designers who realize that style doesn't stop at size 12. The plus-size lines ahead are filled with gorgeous, wearable, fashion-forward clothes. (And, while we didn't include them in this roundup, it's also worth checking out Kenneth Cole, Badgley Mischka, Adrianna Papell, and ML Monique Lhuillier.)
