Finding cute and affordable clothes is difficult for anyone. But for plus-size women, it can feel especially impossible. For the longest time it just seemed like designers were not acknowledging actual women's sizes. Luckily that's no longer the case! That's why we've put together this list of best plus size designers. 

Plus size designers want to make clothes that make women feel beautiful, regardless of whether they are a size 6 or 22. Big name brands like Eileen Fisher and Ralph Lauren have also gotten into plus size fashion, carrying over their signature looks to sizes that fit real women. Target has too, with the launch of their Ava & Viv line. 

Fashion is all about showing off the things that make you unique. And designers of plus size clothing know the more curves, the better. Lesser known (but soon to be infamous) designers like Project Runway's Ashley Nell Tipton are changing the game, offering amazing clothes in sizes starting at size 12. And even Melissa McCarthy is stepping into the plus size fashion industry with her line Seven7. The line will offer sizes from 4 to 28. (Although she's made it clear that she doesn't like the segregation of larger sizes.)

Before you hit the racks, hit our list of best plus size designers. Vote up the designer that makes you feel your curviest and most bad-ass-est!
