Love shopping at markets but tired of not finding your size in clothing? A Plus Markets is a roving Melbourne market offering fabulous plus-sized fashion and accessories made especially to flatter your fuller figure.
Founder of A Plus Markets, Erin Cox, speaks of her own struggle to find great plus-sized clothing, "Years of shopping disappointments left me discouraged. I found myself wishing for a place where I could find bargains and one-off pieces in my size but there just wasn't anywhere. So, I've decided to do something about it."
