High-street brand Oasis has announced the launch of its very own plus-size range.
If you’re thinking ‘wait, I swear Oasis already did plus-size clothing’, you’re right – Oasis released a range with Simply Be last year. This collection will be different as it’s just Oasis, not Simply Be, and will have an extended offering. Hooray.
The Oasis Curve collection, launching on 23 September, will go from size 20 to 26, and feature dresses, knitwear, denim, and more.
We don’t yet know all the details of what will be included, but Oasis has released some campaign images that show plenty of prints and bodycon dresses.
There’s just one thing to note: The range will only be available online, meaning you won’t be able to try items on before buying them.
That’s a massive shame. Everyone finds it handy to make sure clothes fit before purchasing them, but that’s especially true for those in larger sizes, who are all too used to sizing discrepancies in the limited plus-size offering on the high street.
Here’s hoping that Oasis will launch the range in-store, too. Their brand director, Sarah Welsh, says Oasis is all about listening to feedback, so we hope they’ll hear customers when they ask for the option to try before buying.
‘Dressing as many customers who love the Oasis brand as possible is incredibly close to our heart,’ says Sarah.
‘We believe that everyone should be able to wear Oasis and feel great in it, and we have had fabulous feedback from our customers about the additional sizes and lengths which we have added to our range.
‘Through listening to our customers, it became increasingly clear that we should extend our offer further to include sizes through 20-26.
‘As a result, we launched an exclusive range with Simply Be last year to great success and are delighted that we have now extended this offer to include more choice, launching on our own website from September.
‘As always, we will listen, learn from and respond to our customers feedback to endeavour to continue to deliver what she wants from Oasis.’
