Shopping in Australia can be a difficult task for plus-size women.

Although 63 percent of Aussie women are size 14 and over, only 20 percent of apparel made and sold in Australia is in these sizes.

Plus-size clothing can be frumpy and out-dated, with limited choices and not a great deal of brands for women to access in local shopping malls.

The Australian market has a lot of work to do when it comes to size-inclusive fashion and selling fashionable pieces in store, rather than online.

With these frustrations in mind, two sisters located more than 17,000km apart due to COVID, have launched an innovative and ethically made clothing line in Australia, specifically for the plus-size market.


Sydney’s Sylvie Wilson, 32, has joined forces with UK-based sibling Danielle, 31, to create Dani Marie, a slow and spirited fashion line with 33 sophisticated pieces, that focus on comfort and form, without compromising on quality and style.

It's no secret plus size clothing is readily available in the US and the UK, but Australia lags behind.

The sisters acknowledge this struggle and also the tsunami of fast fashion, especially for the plus-sized market.

Sylvie and Danielle founded Dani Marie after identifying a significant gap in the market for a modern, yet classic plus-sized brand.

Dani Marie creates beautiful ethically made clothing with sustainable practices while maintaining an affordable price tag.

Take a look at some of their pieces below, as well as other fashionable options.
