I'm pretty much a Leopard Print Addict. Ever since 2008 when I saw a piglet at the Easter Show that was leopard print. (I still want that pig!) ​ 3. I have way too much make-up and nowhere to wear it. ​ 4. I did Croatian Dancing for a solid 15 years and speak the language fluently ​ 5. I won the most frequent hair colour change award at my year 10 formal & have died my hair at least 100 times i'm sure! ​ 6. I'm a die hard gingham fan. Dresses, pants, skirts EVERYTHING! ​ 7. I have the most belligerent British Bull Dog on all the Earth, Winston. ​ 8. The first concert I attended was drumroll please.....50 CENT (should I be admitting this?) ​ 9. I'm a size 20 AU. ​ 10. I've travelled outside of Australia 3 times- to Bali for my honeymoon, Croatia to meet my family for the first time in 2016 and on a Cruise to Vanuatu, Maree & Noumea you know, back when we could travel ​ On a serious note (boring I know) I am ridiculously excited to have this opportunity to help you avoid the disappointment I have felt for so long when shopping for clothing in my size. Together we can build an inclusive community of like minded women, encourage each others confidence whilst changing the way we feel about the word "fat" ​ ​ We are fat and fabulous! ​

While we will use reasonable endeavours to do so, and subject to clause 9, we do not guarantee that the information contained on our Online Shop is always accurate and up-to-date.

We will not be liable for any reliance you place on these recommendations. Please contact us if you require exact measurements of any Product(s) prior to purchase. If a Product does not fit as you intended, you may not rely on our sizing recommendations in order to request a refund or store credit. Where available, we may provide an exchange of the Product for the same item in a different size, however please note that this may not be possible as we very rarely stock two of the same Product.

The operation of the Consumer Guarantees cannot be, and are not in these Terms and Conditions, excluded, restricted or modified. Order Cancellations, Refunds and Returns The Returns process provided in this clause 10 is in addition to any further rights you may have under the Australian Consumer Law and subject always to clause 9. Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods otherwise fail to meet a consumer guarantee in the Australian Consumer Law. If you have made a mistake when placing your Order and wish to cancel it, please immediately email us at maria@thefatsection.com . An Order cannot be cancelled once Product(s) have been shipped. If your Order is successfully cancelled, we will provide you with an equivalent store credit. This store credit will be issued as a voucher code to the email you have provided to us and will be valid for 12 months from the date it is issued. Please choose your Product(s) carefully as, subject to clause 10.2, we will not provide a refund or store credit or exchange because you have changed your mind. We always do our best to package Products appropriately to avoid any damage. If, however, the Product(s) you have ordered arrive damaged or faulty, please email us within 10 days of the Products being delivered at maria@thefatsection.com and provide evidence of the damage or fault. Subject to clause 10.5, if we are satisfied (acting reasonably) that you have provided reasonable evidence of the damage or fault, you may elect to receive either: store credit of the equivalent amount; a refund of the full amount; an exchange up to the equivalent amount; or a replacement of the Product (if available). Please note, however, that since we rarely stock two of the same Product, we will not usually be able to offer a replacement. If a replacement Product is not available, we will issue a full refund. We may require the Product(s) to be returned via post before issuing you with a remedy under clause 10.4. If we do so, we will ask you to mail the Products back to us. You will need to mail the Products at your own expense and we will reimburse you for your reasonable return postage costs. You will only receive a store credit, refund, replacement (if possible) or exchange once we have received the Products and are satisfied, acting reasonably and in accordance with clause 10.7, that you are entitled to a store credit, refund, exchange or replacement (if possible). If you have ordered a Product that does not fit you (unless you had contacted us for exact measurements of a Product and we had provided you with incorrect measurements prior to purchase), we may, at our discretion, offer you an exchange for an equivalent store credit. You will need to mail the Product back to us at your own expense. You will only receive a store credit once we have received the Product and are satisfied, acting reasonably and in accordance with clause 10.7, that you are entitled to a store credit. The store credit will be issued as a voucher code and sent to the email address that you have provided to us and will be valid for 12 months from the date it is issued. Where you are required to return the Product(s) via post under clause 10.5 or 10.6, the Product(s) will only be accepted for a remedy under clause 10.4 or 10.6 if: all original tags (if any) are intact; the Product is in its original packaging (if any); and the Product is not damaged or is in a physical state not otherwise specified in its description at the time you placed the Order. If a Product is lost during shipment, we will ship a replacement (depending on the availability of the Product) six weeks after the date the Product was dispatched. For clarity, a product will not be considered to be lost during shipment if there is a considerable delay in delivery but package tracking indicates that the Product has not in fact been lost. Please note that we very rarely stock two of the same Product and if a replacement Product is not available, we will issue a full refund. We will contact you to provide a full refund in respect of your Order if payment has been processed but we are unable to provide or otherwise deliver your selected Product(s) for any reason.

  • ABOUT | The Fat Section

    ABOUT US Passion, Sheer Frustration, love of fashion & a good idea led us here..... ​ Time and time again, following our own shopping disappointments, we are reminded about how much the plus size fashion industry in Australia is lacking. From crappy sizing to the less than desirable styles available it can be a huge struggle to find what we want to wear in "Plus Size", or in other words anything larger then a size 16. We have talked to a lot of women on our journey who struggle to find the most basic pieces. As a result this has really affected their passion for fashion & self esteem. Although we are not creating our own designs & pieces, our dream is to offer a Plus-size one stop shop, somewhere you can find an entire outfit without compromising your style or enduring the frustration of searching endlessly for your size. We offer a sustainable way to shop by re-homing preloved & often new pieces. We take take care of the rummaging & searching so you don't have to! Forget searching for the "plus-size" section in the dingy dark corner at the back of the store. Our goal is take the stress out of shopping. All of our pieces are individually selected, thoroughly inspected, cleaned and steamed ready for you to rock right away! We are ALWAYS on the hunt for new pieces so you can count on us to regularly add stylish & affordable items for every occasion - not the moomoo's we are so conditioned to expect! ​ Arguably the most important point, is that buying preloved is simply much better for our earth. We can all look after our earth individually and collectively by buying preloved and reducing our fashion footprint. Second-hand clothing adds to your wardrobe without contributing to the creation of new garments.

  • Did you Know...? | The Fat Section

    Did you know? Australian’s are the world’s second-largest consumers of fashion. On average, they consume 27kgs of new clothing and textiles every year. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-01-12/australias-obsession-with-new-clothes-hurting-the-environment/8177624 ​ “Global clothing production has doubled in the past 15 years, with garments on average being worn much less and discarded quicker than ever before.” https://www.ellenmacarthurfoundation.org/ ​ Australians collectively spend about $5 billion on fashion and three-fifths of that is trashed within a year https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-03-10/sustainable-fashion-tips/12038770 ​ According to the United Nations, the fashion industry is responsible for 8 to 10 per cent of the world's greenhouse gas emissions. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-03-10/sustainable-fashion-tips/12038770 ​ Plus-size brands make up just 6.7 per cent of the 16.5 billion dollar clothing industry in Australia but according to the ABS , about 67 per cent of Australian women are considered ‘overweight’. While being technically overweight doesn’t necessarily correlate to a person’s clothing size, we can still see that something doesn’t add up here. https://fashionjournal.com.au/fashion/plus-size-fashion-bad-business ​ ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT On top of the ethical questions that come along with fast fashion, there is the environmental footprint it is leaving behind. The fashion industry accounts for 2% of global GDD but is also the second-largest polluter behind the Oil industry. Much of the pollution caused by the fashion industry, which grew by 9.7% between 2010 and 2015, has fast fashion to blame. ​ Globally we are now consuming 80 billion new pieces of clothing every year—400% more than we were consuming just two decades ago. Australia is one of the biggest contributors to fashion pollution, now only second to the US. We send 85% of the textiles we buy to landfill every year equalling up to about 27 Kilograms of new textiles per person per annum. The fashion industry uses masses of freshwater and energy to produce goods, and the dwindling resource emits huge quantities of greenhouse gasses. Synthetic fibres, a favourite of fast fashion brands, are made from petroleum, meaning it can take up to a thousand years to biodegrade. A thousand years! Petroleum-based fibres like polyester, nylon and acrylic also release plastic microfibers into the water. A 2011 study noted a single synthetic garment can create upwards of 1900 microfibres from one machine cycle which is then consumed by sea life. This does not only affect marine life but also affects those of us who eat fish because we are ingesting the same fibres that the fish ingest. As well as using an exorbitant amount of water, the fashion industry also pollutes it. In developing countries (where most of fast fashion is produced), 90% of textile wastewaters are dumped directly into rivers, untreated. Wastewater from textiles contains toxic substances such as lead, mercury, and arsenic. This is harmful to wildlife, the millions on millions of people who live in the surrounding areas, and finally globally when contaminated waters reach the sea. ​ What is Fast Fashion?

  • Frequently Asked Questions | The Fat Section

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THAT FOR YOUR BUSINESS NAME?​ ​ There are a couple of reasons why we fell in love with the name "The Fat Section" and had to use it for our business. 1. Like many of us the struggle to find plus size clothing can be extremely disappointing, so when my bestie & I go shopping we always find our selves asking each other "where is the fat section"? We have always had the ability and confidence to speak openly about our size and how much we love our selves none the less. This brings me to the second reason, fat is too often thrown around in a derogatory fashion and I'm over it! I hope to help desensitize the word fat and help you to feel fabulous no matter your size! ​ WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED? ​ The Fat Section is an online store. At this stage we do not have a physical shop, however, we hope too in the future. We are based in NSW. ​ ​ WHAT BRANDS DO YOU STOCK? Being preloved means that we are able to source a huge range of brands new, well known, unkown & everything in between. The brands that we offer will all depend on what is available and what we can source. Some of the brands that we stock are City Chic, ASOS, Autograph, Avenue, Stax, Exotica Athletica, New Look, Puma, Mimco, Good American, Crossroads, Dazie, Forever 21, HNM, Zara, Showpo, Forever New, Pretty Little Thing, Sara, Missguided, Atmos & Here, Collusion, Sussan, Just Jeans, Levi's, Mika & Muse plus many others. We don't focus purely on the brand but rather the style/quality of the garment. ​ WHERE ARE THE CLOTHES SOURCED? All of our items are sourced in NSW. We have suppliers that provide us with garments that are sorted and select what we want to stock at The Fat Section, we also scour many Op Shops & Preloved Boutiques. This is one of the benefits of shopping with us - we rummage for you and provide a shortlist of pieces in a range of different styles. We dont want to give away all of our secrets just yet! ​ ​ WHERE DO YOU SHIP? ​ We ship Australia Wide Only. ​ CAN I SELL MY CLOTHES TO THE FAT SECTION? Not yet. We Hope to "buy from you" soon.
