The sustainable fashion movement is everywhere these days with swap shops popping up all over the place.
People are choosing to turn to pre-loved bits more and more but sometimes it can be hard to partake, especially if there are limited sizes and options available.
The easiest and cheapest way to be sustainable with our wardrobes is by buying second hand but it seems that people with bigger bodies find it much more difficult to find fashionable clothes when thrifting.
Well, Sustainable Fashion Dublin want to make sure that the movement is as inclusive as possible and are organising their first Plus Size Swap Shop.
Think clothes, craic and good vibes-a-plenty. There’ll also be a panel discussion with journalist Sarah Magliocco, model Halle Steele and body image activist Louise O’Reilly all about sustainable shopping and how to make the best of what you already have.

We Need New Icons! Yes @simplybeuk we do 🙌 Thank you for leading the conversation. 66% of women still can’t relate to majority of models across top fashion brands and 35% of women still feel their own body shape still isn’t accepted by fashion. Today Simply Be want to create new faces of fashion putting a spotlight on and celebrating all female bodies.. more to come later this evening 💕 AD #TheNewIcons
Taking place in the Tara Building on Saturday, November 19, things will kick off from 12 p.m.
So have a root, pick out some bits you wouldn’t mind parting with and get your swap on.
