ADALEI is excited to offer our new size range, including PLUS in L (14/16) and XL (18/20). We understand fit can be difficult and hope to find solutions by offering overlapping and expanded sizes for our straight and plus ranges.
SHOP COLLECTION = Straight Sizing
SHOP PLUS = Plus Sizing
Designing a plus-sized line isn't as simple as taking the model sample and making it bigger. There are specific changes in the plus body that create a fit issue when grading up through a straight size range.
The best fit comes from developing patterns that START on a plus form, which is how I design in the studio. Using the Alvanon 1/2 scale size 18 and the Alvanon Body Platform virtual avatars as my fit standard, I'm offering these overlapping and expanded sizes to fit more body types.
Noticeable differences will be in the armhole, crotch depth, ease across the bust and the waist/hip measurement.
As a child of the 70's, the Palazzo pant continues to be one of my favorite styles. Trends may come and go, but this design feels timeless and wearable at any stage of life. The waistband sits right above the belly button with a wide elastic. I cut these with a generous rise for comfort throughout the day.
