Hey there, fellow curvy ladies and gents in Hong Kong! We all know the struggle of finding fashionable and affordable clothing that fits our bodies juuuust right. It’s honestly like searching for a needle in a haystack. But fear not, because we’ve got you covered! I scoured the internet, used my own experiences, and even spoke to fashion stylist, Polina of @styleit_green for recommendations. So here are the top spots to check out for all your plus size shopping needs in Hong Kong.

Plus size stores

Believe it or not, there are a couple of dedicated plus size clothing stores across Hong Kong that cater specifically to bigger bodies. Created by fellow disgruntled individuals who decided to take their fashion crises into their own hands, they are a great option.

Fashion Corner Plus — Lai Chi Kok

Created by Makalya Ng, the clothes are custom tailored with plus size girls’ body shapes in mind. Carrying sizes M to 4XL, you no longer need to think about what is “flattering” or not – wear what you love! They carry everything from bras and activewear to cute skirts and plus size dresses. And don’t forget to tag #ourcurvystyle to further empower the community to embrace themselves.

My Rules — Kwai Chung

With a mission to help you “fall in love with yourself in front of the mirror every day”, My Rules has a TON of amazing clothes for sizes L, XL, and XXL. Their dresses in particular are super cute and girly, and affordable too. You can find cute outfits for under HK$500 at My Rules.

XSXXL — Kwun Tong, Kwai Hing

Men, don’t worry, we found options for you too! Since 2007, XSXXL has provided plus size clothing options for men. They source products from around the world, specifically Japan and the United States with popular brands including Wrangler, Ralph Lauren, Stussy, and Adidas. T-shirts, jeans, hoodies, they’ve got it all! They also have in-person stores which allows you to try and check out what you like in a safe and comfortable environment.

Thrift/secondhand plus size clothing

We cannot ignore the environmental impact of fast fashion, and fashion in general. But unfortunately, there aren’t that many sustainable brands making great plus size clothing (except for the couple we’ve included below!). So personally, I like to shop secondhand. 

Hong Kong Curvy Swap and Sell — Facebook

This group is a wonderful place to swap and sell secondhand fashion for curvy women in Hong Kong. You can often find dresses, tops, skirts and even shoes in brands and sizes that you might otherwise not be able to find! It is truly a supportive community that often shares tips too. Plus, this is a great opportunity for you to pass on your own unused clothes and earn a little bit of pocket money.

Green Ladies/Redress/Carousell — Multiple locations, online

These secondhand platforms for plus size fashion can be a hit or a miss but are worth checking out if you’re open to spending time exploring and hunting. I have over the years gotten some great gems, especially in the Wan Chai Green Ladies and in the Redress pop-ups. These might be a safer bet as you can try and check the clothes in person. On the other hand, Carousell has a huge platform, with over 250 returns coming up for XXL dresses, but it is not always reliable. I once had someone sell me boots with both the heels broken!

International brands with larger sizing

Finally, there are a number of international brands that are the go-to for curvier women in Hong Kong. Marks & Spencer usually offers up to UK size 16 in stores and goes up to 24 online. COS is another favourite. Phase Eight and Hobbs are British brands that have stores in Hong Kong that carry up to XXL or UK size 20. If you have a slightly bigger budget, you can’t go wrong with Diane Von Furstenburg, which carries sizes up to XXL or US size 16.
