While there is still work to be done, the fashion space has come a long way from being exclusively geared towards specific individuals. Now, the industry strives to be inclusive of groups that are typically misrepresented and or simply referred to as a size, gender, race, or even disability. Inclusive fashion brands represent models of diverse shapes, sizes, abilities, ethnicities, genders, and racial backgrounds to give potential consumers (that means you and I!) a better idea of what might look the best on our beautiful, unique bodies. CF found six inclusive fashion brands to give yourself a little (wait..who am I kidding? A BIG) shopping spree and elevate your wardrobe!
01. Kai Collective
Founded by Fisayo Longe, Kai Collective is a black-owned company with a focus on accessible, diverse fashion for multidimensional women. The collection theme revolves around beauty and creativity with their signature prints, Gaia and Irun. The line consists of swimsuits, dresses, tops, trousers, skirts and of course accessories. The Kai Collection comes in sizes ranging from XS to XXXL.
02. Slick Chicks
Slick Chicks was founded by Helya Mohammadian. The general attitude of the brand is about getting dressed. Seriously, it’s about getting dressed, which many take for granted every day. It’s a challenge that people with physical limitations and disabilities face daily. The Slick Chicks line includes bras, underwear, and loungewear that come in sizes XS to XXL for bras and underwear and XS to 2XL for lounge and adaptive wear.
03. Hey Mavens
Hey Mavens was founded by Annika Benitz Chaloff specifically to demonstrate that sexiness isn’t just a one size fits all kind of thing. Hey Mavens believe that everyone has the right to have their own self-expression. The entire collection is made up of bras and underwear, including sets too! The line consists of sizes XXS to 10X. (Side note: They also sell adorable socks, t-shirts, and many accessories!)
04. Wray NYC

Cami Téllez started Parade to show that everyone has the right to express themselves any way they see fit, because everyone (yes, you!) is unique.
