Let’s talk about plus size Pride collections! This month on The Curvy Fashionista, we are celebrating Pride Month in a variety of ways, and today we’ve gathered up all the plus size pride collections we could find!
Today, we’re excited to share Pride drops (rainbows GALORE!) for plus size and fat babes in 2023.
I’ve done my best to include collections from plus and fat-owned brands, as well as including what Pride drops offer plus sizes. It’s a whole situation in here! I’ve been emailing brands, getting info and using my expertise as a plus size queer blogger to bring you ALL of the goodness.
BUT! I’m not all-knowing! If there’s a brand or collection that should be on this list — but isn’t — drop a comment below! I’m doing my best, as a member of the TCF team, to bring you ALL the info you need. We’ll be updating this piece throughout Pride month — so be sure to check back!

Plus Size Pride Collections – I Broke The Rules :]
In putting together this listicle of plus size pride collections, I wanted to be sure to include brands that have RAINBOW! RAINBOW! RAINBOW! everywhere, but I also wanted to be sure to spotlight LGBTQ+ owned brands.
So, I did!
In this listicle, you’ll find all of the rainbows your heart desires, as well as collections and pieces from plus size and fat owned LGBTQ+ businesses that are close to my heart! <3
Alysse (you may know her from her platform @ReadyToStare) launched her plus size resale shop in 2023, where all pieces are below $40. For Pride Month, she released a special LGBTQ+ Pride Collection!
Sizes: XL – 7X, with some straight size (lol) offerings!
Hey Mavens is a Tennessee-based brand, and they make some of the COOLEST lingerie and underwear! Their rainbow collection for 2023 is SO fun!
Sizes: XXS- 10XL
Reflective Society is an LGBTQ+ owned AND plus owned brand, based in Portland, Oregon. Their bolo ties are PERFECT for Pride Month, utilizing pronoun pins and fun reflective shoelaces. Love this creativity!
Next up, we have Torrid — one of the most popular plus size brands. They’re “Always Proud” collection page features video interviews with LGBTQ+ Torrid team members, which we love!
I also appreciate how SPECIFIC Torrid is around their donations to GLAAD, from the collection. 20% of net proceeds will be donated, along with 1% of net proceeds from the entire brand (up to $250K) will also be donated.
Sizes: 0 to 6X
Chouette Designs is an LGBT AND plus size owned brand, based in San Diego, CA.
Sizing: Up to a 15 ring size
TomboyX is a Seattle-based brand that started with underwear — and expanded from there! Now the brand makes more “masculine” options in active, bras, swimsuits, apparel, and, of course, underwear!
Sizes: 3XS to 6XL, with a good number of styles stopping at a 4X!
Copper Union is another plus owned brand, based in Portland, Oregon. This is a super fun slow fashion brand, making plus size clothing ethically in the PNW!
Sizing: 1X – 7X (custom sizing available)
Next up, let’s talk about one of our fave PLUS SIZE POWERHOUSES, the one and only, Lizzo!
Lizzo has released some super fun pride prints and pieces for June 2023! The prismatic situation is super fun!
Sizes: 6X to XS
Ok, so!! This isn’t *techincally* a Pride Collection, but I do think it’s super important to highlight this brand! Cantiq Los Angeles is a brand based in, you guessed it, Los Angeles, and their genderfluid collection is beautiful!
Next up, I am loving the pieces from the Unique Vintage 2023 Pride Collection! They’re so fun! I love that this brand makes vintage-inspired clothing, using more modern fabrics (love some stretch in my clothes, lol)! (Note: Unique Vintage actually sent me the pictured rainbow dress, and I love it!! Probs would go with another option if you carry more weight in your upper arms, FYI!)
Sizing: Up to a 5X
How fun are these plus size pride pieces from Lane Bryant?
Sizes: 10 – 40
Aqua Underwear is an undergarment brand that serves the LGBTQ+ community, in my home city of Salt Lake City, Utah! Their mesh garments are SO COOL! Currently, the shop is taking a break — but we wanted to be sure to share this cool AF LGBTQ+ owned brand!
Waist Sizes: 24 – 60 inches
Let’s talk Hot Topic! This fun brand has an assortment of pins, hats and plus size pride gear!
