On February 7, ModCloth hosted its first-ever Plus Fit Fete in Pittsburgh’s Bakery Square to celebrate our ever-expanding collection of vintage-inspired and indie plus-size fashions! More than 100 ModCloth customers turned out to mix, mingle, and pose for the photobooth, all while receiving an exclusive first look at some of our favorite spring styles.

During the event, attendees were able to try on some of our current plus-size offerings, get a sneak peek of what’s coming down the line for spring, and offer their feedback to our Plus Size Buyer, Samara! With cake pops galore and warm weather wares to ‘ohh’ and ‘ahh’ over, there was no shortage of excitement throughout the event!

    All of these girls look fantastic!!! THIS is what I always dreamed plus size fashion could do. I’m going to need to get a second job so I can buy one of everything.

    I love your policy of showcasing plus-sized and tattooed models! I hope you’ll host many more shows for all of your demographics, and I hope I’m close enough to attend! Keep up the fabulous work – y’all are my new favorite website!

    I’ve been so happy with the ever expanding plus section, because fat girls like to dress hip too! I see some dresses here that I’m really interested in!

    I love , love, love the fact that Modcloth carries cute clothes in all sizes. All girls deserve beautiful dresses- not just the size 2!
