Pull & Bear, All Saints ‘least inclusive’ on size

Pull & Bear, All Saints, and Vans have been named the least inclusive retailers in the UK when it comes to plus size fashion.

According to The Inclusive Index from wethrift, Pull & Bear and All Saints do not stock any plus size options.

Following in third place was Vans, which only has one plus size option stocked on their official website.

Bershka was next, stocking 61 plus size options, with 16 its largest size.

Levi’s came in fourth, stocking 74 plus size options, with sizes reaching a UK 18.

“Inclusivity is about considering everyone in the same way, and giving everyone a very real visibility however in the fashion industry, everyone knows that this has not always been the case,” said Nick Drewe, founder of the wethrift, the coupon and discount company.

The most inclusive brand was identified as Shein, which has 88,850 plus size options and sizes that go up to 26.

In second was Silkfred with 15,900 options and sizes up to 32.

Debenhams was in third place with 14,762 plus size options and sizes that go up to 40.

Wethrift also explored the size differences across British retailers to find out how accurate they are.

“After analysing the bust, waist and hip CM size measurements for a UK 16 in over 100 retailers to determine how different the sizing can be, we found there is a shocking 13cm difference in hip measurements, a 12.5cm difference in the waist measurements and a 9.7cm difference in the bust measurements,” added Drewe.
