Lane Bryant has built an entire brand around filling gaps in the fashion world. Starting off, the company focused on maternity clothing in an age when pregnant women were expected to stay home. The company added plus-size clothing a few years later, and in the 1980s, it became one of the first brands to offer a petite line.
Because Lane Bryant listens to its customers, the company has always been on the cutting edge of plus-size fashion. In 1909, rather than relying on current trends to guide her brand, Bryant conducted her own survey of women's sizes. She found that even with the Flapper Era just around the corner, over half of the female population didn't fit the slender Gibson Girl build. Based on her findings, she decided to cater to these women instead of simply reinforcing society's rigid (and, in many cases, unrealistic) standards of beauty.
Today, Lane Bryant continues to break the mold when it comes to plus-size fashion. The brand focuses on fit rather than size. Classic silhouettes and modern trends are incorporated, but they are altered in ways that flatter fuller figures.

Browse our selection of shorts for a day of summer shopping, or pick out a blazer and dress pants for work. Solids, prints, layers—you can find a little bit of everything at thredUP.
We even offer several sort and filter options to make your search easier. Whether you plan to build outfits from scratch or buy Lane Bryant items to complement clothing you already own, you can use the categories in the left sidebar to narrow results by item type.
