There is growing research and inclusion of the different kinds of bodies present in the current circumstances in the world. 


The COVID-19 pandemic had quite a negative impact on the market. Much of this happened due to a lack of labor to make plus-sizeplus-sized clothing. There were many manufacturing concerns surrounding the process due to the pandemic. Some of these concerns included fabric shortages and order cancellations. The COVID-19 pandemic also caused a case of lower exports and more lavish consumer spending on items that weren’t all that essential. 


Many manufacturing places are located in South Asia or the Asia-Pacific regions, and COVID-19 stopped the supply chains that allowed companies to send finished products to different manufacturing facilities. Thus, this resulted in a decline in the demand for clothing for plus-size women. 


The sales for this clothing segment are also thought to increase at the quickest rate as many people are constantly looking for more exclusive clothing. Many distributors are now stocking different kinds of plus-sized clothing, making these clothes more accessible and affordable to the public. 


Big chains like Walmart are also hopping on the trend of plus-size clothing, which tends to drive market demand which drives the market demand as other competitors will also follow.

There is also an uptick in body positivity and confidence amongst plus-size women due to the increasing trends on social media. The prevalence of plus-sized models due to fashion marketing that is increasingly inclusive also adds to the rise of plus-size women's clothing. The acceptance adds to rest in women that allows plus-size women to be confident with what they have, insteadbe instead of constantly chasing some unachievable narratives. Big fashion magazines like Vogue and Marie Claire feature more plus-sized women. Additionally, plus-sized models are also becoming a trend that is more vocal about the inconsistencies in the fashion industry.

People are also creating a much more favorable opinion of all sorts of people that they weren't before. Increased awareness of the struggles of losing weight and different body types all over social media drives market demand.

Manufacturers will likely have to pay more than they want with production as more oversized apparel has lower profit margins. This may mean designers don’t want to produce plus-sized clothing if they feel there's not enough market for it. Thus, a lack of research into customer preferences could cause manufacturers to lose out on more profit. It could also cause the global market growth to get hampered.
