H&M x Moschino’s Collection Doesn’t Carry Plus Sizes Despite Curvy Model In Ads
By Izza Sofia, 09 Nov 2018
H&M x Moschino dropped its highly anticipated collection on Thursday to the delight of fans, though the assemblage fell short for some customers due to its limited sizing.
According to the HuffPost, the apparels for women only come in the limited sizes XS to M. The men’s selection, however, carries sizes XS to L.
H&M told the publication that some of the items run up to large for both men and women. It added that several items have already sold out online and in its physical stores, therefore shoppers might not have been able to view the full range of sizes for a particular garment.
While H&M is no stranger to gripes on its lack of inclusive sizing, this particular omission has been particularly unsatisfying due to how the highly coveted collaboration has been marketed.
Leading up to its launch, its ads displayed various models including drag queen Aquaria and plus-size model Barbie Ferreira.
The promotional materials suggested that plus-size women would be able to purchase clothing from this collection. H&M commented, however, that its garments do not run into this spectrum of sizing options.
The fast fashion brand explained that the collaboration does not offer plus sizes for ladies or men, and that the company will evaluate its future collaborations to improve product offerings for its customers.
One extremely dismayed fan tweeted, “I think its complete GARBAGE that you offer no XL sizes in neither men nor women’s clothes. @hm @Moschino Plus size people WANT to look cute too, we WANT to wear high fashion clothes, we WANT to feel included. It’s obvious what kind of people you want wearing your clothes.”

@hm are you fucking kidding me with your Moschino line going up to a L and nothing bigger? @ITSJEREMYSCOTT aren’t you supposed to be about inclusivity and expression through fashion but yet completely disregard plus size people unless it’s good for an Instagram post?— NEVERAGAIN.
