Plus-size clothing is often quite hit and miss. The sizing is either totally out of whack or the designs just, well, leave a little to be desired... Oh, and to top things off, they're normally a way more expensive. Greeeattt.

So when we find a label that consistently nails the curvy fashion brief, we find it particularly worthy of sharing.

Scroll down for the best brand and shops for curvy and plus-size clothing in the UK.

1. Navabi

Navabi offers one of the biggest ranges of designer plus-size fashion in the world, with styles available in sizes 12-32. The designer labels means it's slightly pricer, but if you can afford to invest in some wardrobe staples, you will find them here.

2. PrettyLittleThing

PrettyLittleThing's plus-size range came onto our radar after curve blogger, Chloe Elliott, sang their praises. Not only have the brand extended their sizing to a 26, but as Chloe points out, they are offering something we have never seen in plus-size ranges before.

3. Boohoo

In times of crisis we turn to the Boohoo plus range. Not only is the entire line incredibly affordable, but we just love that they offer the exact same clothes but in bigger sizes. Just because we are a bigger size, doesn't mean we want to spend our life in kaftans, am I right?

5. ASOS Curve

ASOS Curve is always going to be our number one curvy girl shop. It's our first destination whenever we're in need of a new outfit, because we know they will always come through with the classics and more trend lead pieces. With sizes ranging from 16-30, we wish more retailers would follow suit.

6. Elvi

Elvi is a brand that we first discovered through ASOS Curve and it's quickly become one of our favourites. It's a mix of high quality wardrobe staples and high fashion pieces that you wouldn't expect from a plus size brand. Our favourite thing are their skirts, from pleated, to metallic, to faux leather, they have everything. Plus they have some pretty cool collaborations, like Hayley Hasselhoff.
