Following in the footsteps of Boohoo Plus and Asos Curve, Missguided have launched their own collection for curvier ladies that crave trend-oriented clothing to flatter their figure.
Missguided + consists of a capsule collection of 73 items available in sizes 16-24, and ranges from an affordable £10 to £45-£50 for statement pieces.
The online retailer claims they are dedicated to directional, strong and confident designs and includes a good range of trousers, twin-sets, jumpers and statement coats.
Victoria Betts, marketing and trade director at Missguided, commented: “We’ve built an extremely strong base of loyal consumers over the last five years and a really important value for us is to listen to them and react to their feedback where possible. In particular we’ve had a lot of demand for a plus size range. We’re an inclusive brand and it’s something we always wanted to do when we were ready.”
It seems the curvy collection has gone down well with plus-size fashionistas as they took to Twitter to share their thoughts.

Fashion North agrees Missguided + is a refreshing addition to plus-size retail. Here are our top picks from the line.
Longline Khaki Duster Jacket: We’ve seen this style of blazer everywhere this season in shades of mulberry and black, however this khaki coloured option both unique and flattering. The longer length will suit curvy figures and accentuate your best features.
Lace Print Tapered Trousers: The printed pant has been a huge trend this year and this pair with an unusual yellow lace motif is like nothing we’ve ever seen before. Styled with a pair of comfy heels and a black polo neck jumper, you have the perfect fashionable office outfit.
Knot Front Drape Top: Everyone needs a smart black top in their life and this bat-winged piece would pair perfectly with the printed trousers. If you worry about your arms, the draped sleeves will be comfortable, give your confidence and look great.
Tartan Mesh Panel Skater Skirt: A dark tartan is a must have in your winter wardrobe and this pretty skirt with an edgy mesh panel could be worn from day to night. The skater cut will flatter wider hips and give a sexy silhouette.
Grid Print Crop Top and Midi Skirt: Matching two-pieces are something that you rarely find above a size 16. This geometric offering is the perfect balance of trendy but comfortable due to the midi length skirt and would look fantastic either together or worn separately with other pieces.
