Canadian womenswear designer Hilary MacMillan is the latest to join the growing number of labels offering extended sizing. For the first time, the Toronto-based clothing line is making select pieces from their spring-summer 2020 collection available up to 4X and dress size 22.
The label’s popular feminism-themed capsule of sloganed varsity jackets became available in extended sizing last year after customer demand, but they were also receiving requests to extend the seasonal collections. While the costs and risks to expand sizes are higher for smaller, independent brands like Hilary MacMillan, the team felt that it could be done now.
“It was always our goal to expand our sizing range,” said MacMillan in a press release. “As an independent fashion brand, the timing had to be right and the consumer demand had to be there for it to be successful.”
The collection will be available for pre-order in mid-August, and will be in-stores and online next March. Take a first look at the collection below.
