However, until recently, ADDITION ELLE has only offered their clothing up to a size 24, and this has been quite problematic for the plus size shopper. As someone who wears anywhere from a size 22-30 (thanks to my body shape, and depending on the style/fit/cut of the garment), there were a lot of things I found I couldn't wear or fit into at ADDITION ELLE. And I wasn't the only one - many other plus size customers have voiced that they felt disappointed that the brand didn't offer a larger sizing, and with the use of models size 12/14, they felt the brand didn't appeal or speak to them as women who fell into the bigger end of the plus-size sizing scale.
So when I was contacted by ADDITION ELLE to be the face (and body!) of their new size 26 launch, I couldn't have been more thrilled/excited. Not only were they listening to their customers and extending their sizing in everything available at the store, but they were using a Canadian "size 26 model" (since I wear a size 22-30, I fall right in the middle) to showcase this amazing news! Ladies, we asked and they listened!
I had an absolute blast at the studio modeling the new sizing in some seriously fabulous pieces (all that were size 26) - take a look:
Special thanks to the amazing team at the ADDITION ELLE studio that day who helped me look and feel my most fabulous, and to my friend Samantha who was my travel-partner and support during the fantastic experience.
