It’s that time of the year again when we all are looking for the perfect Raya outfit. Family and friends gather around delicious food after a month of fasting. This calls for the perfect outfit that is both stylish and comfortable.
Here are my top 5 picks!
Available on Zalora and their flagship studio in Bangsar
Syomir cuts very well for plus size girls who have big tops and small bottoms like me. The sizes range from size UK12 to UK20 and have a very flowing kinda feel to it. Wraps are his go to which I love but be wary cause some of the materials can be a little hot for us girls but overall a very beautiful collection with beautiful prints!

Their prints for this years collection is very pastel, fun and flowy but for the girls that want something simple, they have a beautiful almost masculine style (ala baju melayu) this year that speaks to the masses. I am in love with their double clasp on their skirt which allows you to expand your skirt (genius!)

I am all about good material that is breathable and cooling. Being big we sweat in places that are often so uncomfortable and it can be painful so it is important to have good material so your body can breathe. I love Whimsigirls take on the ‘everyday girl’ which speaks to young women, matured women and the women of all shapes and sizes. Plus Linen is timeless and the longer you own and wear it the more comfortable it is!
Available online as well as their flagship store in SS23 Taman Sea
The up and coming plus size brand that is thinking about us big girls. They have an awesome collection for girls who are of bigger sizes. They offer XL to 7XL sizes which is super rare to find in Malaysia. Their clothes are comfortable and cut very well for girls who are bottom heavy. Just be wary because some materials are little hot for our weather but non the less you can find anything from cotton kurungs to beautiful evening gowns at their store.

Possibly the only plus size brand that is really offering youthful and young designs for us big girls. The best part is they deliver straight to your door. They too offer XL to 6XL sizes which is difficult to find. Similarly, look at the materials they use because it is important to be comfortable during Raya
Much love from me,
