As every curvy girl here knows, it’s seriously tough to find cool clothes at a reasonable price in Singapore if you’re bigger than a Medium. Many of the so-called Free Size threads in hipster boutiques are catered towards the typical South-east Asian frame - you know, about the size you were in Primary 6.

But there’s no need to lose all hope and resign yourself to dressing in shapeless styles for the rest of your life. Thankfully, a few stores (both online and offline) are smartly catering to us bigger girls with fashion-forward designs that will be the envy of your skinnier friends. Click through the gallery above for seven of the best, plus our favourite picks.
