We understand that preloved shopping is still foreign for many, we encourage you to give it ago and like us you will become addicted! Here are 5 Reasons you should shop with The Fat Section:
We do the rummaging & handpick every item!
You could say Rummaging is one of our forte's, we are self proclaimed professional fashion hunters! Rummaging is our business. You will only see the best of the best on the Fat section. We only pick what we would be happy to wear/buy.
We are super picky with the items that we select for our store. There are many things that we consider before an item is suitable to offer for sale. Style, Quality, Condition, Season & affordability. It is very important to us that we deliver on each of these every time! When picking items for our store we keep an open mind so that we have something for everybody, all occasions and styles! We know you will find something you love!
Our range of styles, sizes & brands are impressive
We are not limited to brand, trends or anything really. This means we have full control over the range that we have for sale. Most of our pieces are one offs so you can be almost certain you wont run into any outfit imposters at your next event. We aim to have a good selection of different styles, colors, textures, patterns & most importantly SIZE. Our size range is from a 14/16 up. I am always hunting for sizes beyond 24 which unfortunately are a little harder to come by! This is a huge issue, if you can make a garment in 1 size you can make them in all but this is a topic for another day!
We place a huge emphasis on affordability
This should be a given when shopping preloved, especially with The Fat Section. We pride ourselves on our affordable prices because we want everybody to have access to our items. You better believe that you can get a head to toe outfit for under $100! You don't have to compromise on quality or settle anymore, we have quality fashion at affordability/sensible prices.
Our Mantra is simple! Wear whatever you want, love your self, flaunt your confidence, be proud of your beautiful body & help others to feel amazing! Our goal is to help desensitise the word fat & change the stigma surrounding it. Fat = brains, beauty, worthy, deserving, damn sexy! Join us in our mission, no fat person left behind!

We have been there, many times! you can reach us via email, on our socials and on the contact us page on our website. We will always respond ASAP and want to work with you to make sure you are 100% satisfied.
Preloved fashion is gaining a a lot popularity, not just because its trendy but because it is a lot kinder on our earth in the long run. The environment is definitely a hot topic and for good reason. Fast fashion is the 2nd largest contributor of the worlds total waste. With that in mind all of our items are preloved, even the new ones with tags had previous homes. The items have already been purchased - we are prolonging their lifecycle significantly and keeping them out of landfill that little big longer. This is why we offer fast fashion brands in our store, they are already in circulation so why not?
