About Us

We started with a single mission:

Provide fashionable, extraordinary clothes for the plus size woman.

In a world where fast fashion rules and plus size woman are ignored, we're here to change that. We believe you deserve better.

Fast fashion is known for poor quality, hazardous materials and unethical labor tactics. At On the Plus Side we stand for the exact opposite. We believe that clothes should make you feel good on the inside and out. Our clothes are designed with you in mind.

We ONLY make plus size clothes so our focus is solely on YOU, the plus size woman who deserves more. Everything we make is exclusive to us, we've created our own specifications and patterns. We use only true plus size models in our fit and advertising, so no more ramping up a size 6 and hoping it fits!

Our commitment to delivering perfect fit and sensational style to women of all plus sizes remains unwavering. That's why we take your suggestions to heart and work tirelessly to create patterns, select fabrics and add detailing that lifts your spirits, supports your confidence, and allows your inner radiance and outer beauty to shine. We comb our vendors to ensure that they use only fair labor standards and treat our environment with the respect it deserves, while only giving you the finest materials that feel good and look great!

Our Company:


Since 1984 our goal has been to go above and beyond for our customers.

Our style changes seasonally, our signature pieces remain the same and all have our perfected fit. Using fit models, made up almost exclusively of actual customers, we have developed our own specifications and patterns in order to create our own pieces, as opposed to ramping up a size 6, and hoping that it works. We cater to women all over the world in sizes 22-48 (2X-8X).


Located in Northern California, we have built a community of employees that live locally. All of our employees from the CEO to the call center to our graphic department work under one roof. We all work closely with one another to get every job done. Our warehouse is in-house, so everyone has seen, felt, and even in some cases modeled the product for us!

Our experienced Customer Service Fit Specialists have direct access to our clothing line and are specially trained to assist you in finding your perfect On the Plus Size fits, colors, and styles! And when our team is not available our over flow call center is in state as well, and they are also available to help you with any questions that you might have! We're always happy when a customer comes to visit us!


We've been Thinking Green since 1984. We even have a group of employees who make up our Green Team! They meet once a month to ensure everything from our office supplies to our shipping supplies to our cleaning supplies are something we can all feel good about using.

Over 90% of our clothing is made with natural fibers, that not only look great and last you for years, but they feel amazing too! We use fiber reactive dyes that are fade resistant and less toxic! One of our main goals is to reduce our carbon foot print. So in order to do so, we print out catalog on paper from a sustainable forest, which is also makes no chemical impact.
