The Plus-Size Women's Clothing Stores industry has been rapidly expanding over the past five years. Industry growth has been spurred on by a growing customer base and changing attitudes towards plus-size fashion. Television programmes, popular celebrities and fashion advertising campaigns have all contributed to changing the perception of plus-size women and the fashion options available to them. Plus-size women are increasingly demanding fashionable and trend-led clothing lines, which have not always been available to them in the past. Industry revenue is expected to rise at a compound annual rate of 6.1% over the five years through 2013-14.
