The Fat Positive Clothes Swap provides Plus size / larger bodies with a safe space to swap clothing etc and network .

About this event

About this event :

There are increasingly limited options for the plus size community / those with larger bodies to purchase clothing instore and participate in that clothes shopping experience..

As a result clothes shopping for Plus sizes largely takes place online and due to non standardised sizing , several items often need to be purchased in order to try and obtain a suitable fit. Consequently many of those unsuitable items returned to retailers , which are mainly fast fashion ,tend to end up in landfill adding to environmental issues.

Although many Clothes Swaps exist they often state all sizes and body shapes are welcome, they often have limited choices above a size 16 / Large

Whilst The Fat Positive Clothes Swap does not set out to have the answers to solve this issue. It does provide a safe space specifically for Plus size / larger bodies to reuse , recycle and rehome preloved items in order to update your wardrobe without spending money and is kinder to the planet

Cakes will be on sale by Pretty Little Chef.

HOW THE SWAP WORKS :

Items to be dropped off at 1-1.45pm but will accept after event starts . Doors open at 2pm.

It’s fine if you wish to attend but do not have any / minimal items to swap as there is usually quite a lot of stock.

Clothing will be inspected and unsuitable items removed where possible.

Clothing will be placed on tables in dual sizing for rummaging and selection..

Whilst a Token system is not in place , all attendees are expected to self police and only take reasonable amounts of items.

Clothing will be topped up throughout the event. to ensure a fair selection for all.

Any leftover items will be donated to the onsite charity shop.

WHAT TO BRING :

Please bring no more than 20 items of clothing, accessories and/or footwear freshly cleaned / washed or requiring minimal repair.

They must also be stain free and in good condition..

Although you are permitted to bring along a larger number of items than at most clothes swaps , please only bring something you'd be happy to receive or pass to a friend. PLEASE REMEMBER QUALITY RATHER THAN QUANTITY.
