As the biggest and most popular retailer of plus-sized clothing in the UK, it's no surprise that women looking for stylish items made to fit their curvier sizes can find virtually anything they need and want from the brand. Each of its categories has a wide variety of different styles and colours to suit all personal tastes. Take the bottoms/trousers category for instance, everything from trousers, shorts and skirts to skinny jeans, leggings, joggers and even jeggings are available. The tops category is similarly packed-full of everything from simple, but cool t-shirts to knitted jumpers and tops, blouses, shirts and various cover-ups and cardigans.
As is the dresses selection with evening, maxi, midi, party and skater dresses all for sale. Yours, like many other clothing brands, have collections and promotional items. As a plus-size clothing brand though, they know that underwear and lingerie is an area where many women struggle to find things that actually fit. That's why they have a comprehensive range of shapewear, tights, and babydolls available, along with a huge range of alternative styles of knickers and bras. Nightwear, footwear and a multitude of finishing touches and accessories ensure that the chain really is providing a one-stop shop for larger sized ladies.
The story of Yours began 20 years ago in East Anglia, when Andrew Killingsworth, the founder, was at a market stall. He was buying and selling large volumes of ladies clothing, when he had one parcel that contained exclusively plus-size garments. Those were the biggest sellers and it was then that he realised there was an untapped market for plus-sized clothing at affordable prices.
The company slowly and steadily grew from 1994 up to the present day, opening a total of more than 140 outlets throughout the country, along with many more in 90 countries throughout the world. Including 12 in the Middle East alone. The business is run from its Peterborough-based head office. The headquarters are home to a 90,000-ft warehouse, a photography studio, customer services department and other essential head office departments.
