Finding clothes that fit should be easy

The sustainable fashion industry is growing, yet it needs to catch up in the size inclusivity movement. For people who don’t fall into the fashion industry’s “standardised” sizing system, it can be hard to find clothes that fit and that are more sustainably and ethically made.

Size inclusivity shouldn’t be optional: all bodies are different, and everybody deserves to enjoy more sustainable fashion that aligns with their values, fits their figure, and is comfortable.

While there’s still a long way to go for more sustainable fashion to be truly size-inclusive, a number of conscious clothing brands are helping to tackle the issue—and custom sizing could be part of the solution. We all have items in our wardrobes that fit us according to the industry standards but don’t feel quite right. You know, the pair of jeans that’s a tad too short, the shirt with the sleeves that are a bit too long. Sadly, these items often don’t last long in our wardrobes.

Made-to-order fashion helps solve that issue by allowing you to customise your wardrobe in ways you can’t usually choose when buying a pre-made garment, like pant length, width, or stitching colours. Buying garments that really fit us helps ensure we keep them around for longer and, in turn, helps lower fashion waste.

To help you find your best fit, we went on the hunt for more sustainable custom fit clothing brands. Here are six “Good” and “Great” rated brands that offer custom sizing.

A note on size inclusivity

Good On You wants to help you find sustainable options that suit your needs. We share your frustration that sustainable fashion has too few size-inclusive options. Sustainable brands often lack an extended sizing range beyond 2XL, and when they do, they might provide limited options. In order for sustainable fashion to become more mainstream, it has to include everyone, and brands need to catch up or risk getting left behind. Until then, ethical brands offering custom sizing are a good option. Dipping into brands rated “It’s a Start” if they best meet your needs also works. Discover more about the importance of size inclusivity in fashion.
