For many consumers, it can be a problem to find vintage apparel in their size, making the shopping process a frustrating one -- however Generous Clothing is helping to make a difference.
The pop-up shop specializes in women's sizes that range from 10-24, with founders Sharalee, Melissa, and Shantini Klaassen using their own sizing system to ensure consistency across their selection. One of the sisters explained this by telling the Vancouver Sun, "We’re creating our own sizing system by measuring each garment to take the inconsistencies and guesswork out of sizing. That means we have clothing that measures up to a 54 inch waist and a 60 inch bust."
By carefully curating used clothing that suits the needs of their buyers, the Klaassen sisters bring an ethical and eco-friendly shopping alternative to a demographic that's been undeserved in the industry.
