But who are we and what brought us here?
Well here goes. We're two sisters, Sylvie and Danielle - living in Sydney, Australia and Leeds, UK.
Danielle has always struggled to find stylish clothes as a size 18-20 and Sylvie began to notice this when the sisters went shopping together. Danielle could never find anything she liked in her size and asked Sylvie to try things on her behalf so that she could feel included in the fun of fashion.
So the sisters decided to build an inspiring and stylish home for plus size fashion online. A place that brings amazing brands onto one place and with inspirational, stylist curated outfit ideas.
Although 70% of women are plus size, only 20% of apparel is made in plus sizes. And to make matters worse, that 20% of plus size clothing is almost all fast fashion, low quality items made of synthetic fabric.
Sustainable fashion may have hit the zeitgeist of the fashion world in the last 5 years, but plus size consumers were widely ignored by major brands.
So Insyze is also a place to find awesome sustainable brands and learn more about where your clothes came from.
During the last 2 years, Insyze has also grown a kickass community of plus size people supporting each other in fashion advice, body confidence and outfit posts.
So Insyze is the first of its kind, community-led, sustainable plus size marketplace.
"We want to make sustainable shopping more accessible and inclusive, so that you can the most positive relationship with your clothes and the environment." says Sylvie.
