How Plus Size Brands Can Benefit From Specialist Plus Size Fashion Marketing
The plus size market is big business – if you pardon the pun! While it is still a very much under-served sector in fashion; experts have estimated that the plus size market is worth an astonishing £20 billion. As a result, it presents a huge growth opportunity for brands – especially with the rising trend of body positivity. For brands who already managed to capture this market, plus size fashion marketing is essential!
At VerriBerri – a local marketing and PR agency in Essex. We believe that every industry deserves specialist marketing services – no matter how niche or complex.

When it comes to plus size fashion marketing, VerriBerri understand the importance of having a dedicated marketing strategy. In many ways, marketing to plus size customers is no different to straight-size consumers. However, it proves invaluable to work with a marketing company who understands the beliefs, values and thoughts of plus-size shoppers. After all, straight-size fashion brands have told them they’re not good enough because they cannot fit in their clothing.. You don’t want to make the mistake of working with a marketing agency who uses the same strategy for straight-sized brands, as they do plus size brands.
The Importance of Social Media
With one-third of female consumers identifying as plus-size, there is a massive target audience waiting to hear about your product or service. Here at VerriBerri, we believe one of the greatest ways to connect and engage your audience is through social media. This is particularly true for fashion brands! Whether it’s launching a dedicated YouTube profile or setting up an Instagram for your brand; having a presence online is more important than ever.
Social media will help your brand be seen by users all over the world. This will start the all-important customer relationship journey – which will eventually lead to sales. Also, as a hugely visual industry, social media platforms provide the perfect place for you to share your latest clothing launch or upcoming releases. Platforms like Instagram and Facebook are the ultimate platforms for plus size fashion brands. The Instagram hashtag #plussizefashion has over eight million posts. This shows the massive community of users waiting to discover your business.
