We live in an exciting time, when extended-size fashion is more accessible than ever. Plus-size fashion has been getting a lot of positive attention, which has helped bring more options to market, but many brands are cutting corners to try to compete with the demand.A big problem is that some brands are simply scaling up their preexisting straight-size patterns rather than investing the necessary time and money into the fit and quality of the clothes. But curvy women value a good fit and have an eye for design just as much as the next woman. We want pieces that not only are fashion-forward but also can fit a wide array of unique body types.For me, three brands that are stepping up to provide high-quality, well-fitting, and trendy clothes are Eloquii, Torrid, and Simply Be. At this year’s theCURVYcon, I got a chance to speak with some amazing plus-size influencers on their biggest fashion gripe and the different brands that are getting it right.For more style inspiration, follow my instagram @margieplus and my style blog Margie Plus.Yahoo Lifestyle may receive a share from purchases made via links on this page.Read more from Yahoo Lifestyle: • The best plus-size street style looks at New York Fashion Week • ‘I battled eating disorders since I was 12’: How this fashion blogger found body confidence and a collab with Lane Bryant • 9 style tips from curvy influencers Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

We are in the midst of New York Fashion Week, and thanks to this year’s successful theCURVYcon we are seeing a tremendous amount of diversity in the street style surrounding it.I have been attending NYFW since 2011 and have seen a significant shift in the amount of fellow plus-size women attending shows, and it’s even more exciting that they are getting a place in the spotlight and being featured in street style articles. It is a moment they likely won’t forget — I broke down in tears when I received my first street style award as a curvy girl in People StyleWatch magazine, alongside straight-size stars like Alexa Chung and Olivia Palermo. This was a rare instance, but I am beyond thrilled that curvy girls are finally getting their well-deserved place in the fashion scene.The new sense of inclusivity that theCURVYcon is helping bring to New York Fashion Week is so needed, and the industry is taking notice. We can have style at any size.Click through to see my favorite plus-size street style looks for this monumental event.For more style inspiration, follow my Instagram @margieplus or my style blog www.margieplus.com.Read More from Yahoo Lifestyle: • Curvy woman pleads for wide calf boots that actually fit: ‘It’s my dream’ • Fashion insider reveals the secret reason brands don’t use more plus-size models • ‘So twisted’: Plus-size women experience major shopping injustices, says designerFollow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
