PHILADELPHIA, March 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Anthropologie is pleased to announce its new plus-size category, APlus by Anthropologie, launches today at anthropologie.com and in select store locations. The Spring 2019 collection features the brand's seasonal styles and its signature fun, charm and romance – now in an expanded size range that includes 16W – 26W.
"This is an exciting starting point for Anthropologie. Our goal is to be a destination for everyone wanting to express their personal style and to feel like their best selves. At launch, we'll offer a great range of options and an exceptional shopping experience. We'll evolve both as we move forward, adding more styles and locations as we learn from customer feedback." – Richa Srivastava, Anthropologie Managing Director, Design
The APlus by Anthropologie collection, comprised of more than 120 styles, offers an only-at-Anthropologie selection for every occasion. Featuring the brand's best-loved labels, like Maeve, Pilcro and the Letterpress and Essentials by Anthropologie, with complements from market partners such as Cloth & Stone and DL1961, APlus by Anthropologie demonstrates the brand's continued commitment to supporting inclusive sizing. Previously, sizing extended from 00P – 14P and 00 – 16, with petites added for Fall 2012.
"It's a joy to see APlus by Anthropologie come to life. We've been working toward this moment for a long time.
