What if I could introduce you to a whole lot of premier plus size designers you’ve never even heard of? Innovators providing cutting edge designs, new perspectives and clothes to suit a whole range of styles. Your first reaction would be excitement right? Think of all the awesome new outfits waiting to be discovered. But the reality would soon set in, because let’s face it, the worst part about finding a new brand is trying to work out what damn size you are. It’s a pain. With no plus size industry standard, knowing what’s going to fit and how it’s going to fit is a huge gamble.
Well, Zebrano offers an amazing solution to both dilemmas.
Based in New Zealand, Zebrano caters to the boutique high end plus size market. Small runs of incredibly designed, high quality clothing.
Don’t want to seen in the same stuff as everyone else? Then Zebrano is the place for you.

Ethically made, premium designer clothes do come at a higher price point. But investing in high quality fabrics, cuts and finishing a will not only give you a piece that looks fabulous, but also lasts for many seasons to come.
I know many of you are frustrated by the lack of high quality essentials on the plus market, well Zebrano has you covered too, from classic crisp white work shirts, to cashmere and merino – all in plus.
Then there’s the age old online dilemma – with so many different brands, how do I know what size to order?
And it’s not just overall information, you get a guide for the fit at your bust, waist and hips so you can adjust the size depending on your fit preference.
So, I’ve put the system to the test!
I fell in love with this Marco Polo Linen Stripe Shift Dress. In addition to having all the relevant measurement on the page, by clicking the ‘myFit’ tab I can click on each of the sizes available and get all the fit information against my measurements.
Size 16 looked like the winner according to the myFit system so I ordered it.
The fit is great! Just as described. The perfect summer shift dress – I have a feeling this baby will get a solid workout on my upcoming tropical cruise!
