London label Rixo has finally extended its size offering to a UK size 24 for the first time. 

You’ve likely been dedicating the majority of your attention span to dissecting the Don’t Worry Darling controversies or the general state of affairs in Westminster of late. If it’s not Hollywood drama unravelling in front of our very eyes at the Venice Film Festival, it’s Joe Lycett appearing on Laura Kuenssberg’s Sunday politics show to poke fun at right-wing critics. It’s fair to say that our attention has been elsewhere – until now, that is.

After years of development, London label Rixo – the brand revered for its whimsical, vintage-inspired collections – has today unveiled that its clothing will finally be available in UK sizes 6 to 24 for the first time.  

For the first time, all of Rixo’s pieces will be available from a UK size 6 to 24.

“Fit is so important to us and working with specialists in the extended sizing space has helped us perfect the fit across this range,” says Orlagh McCloskey, Rixo’s co-founder. It’s taken a few years, but we wanted to make sure it was right. Rixo is all about making women feel amazing, and we hope even more of them feel the best version of themselves whilst wearing our pieces.”

McCloskey and her fellow co-founder, Henrietta Rix, have chosen 32 pieces from the brand’s autumn/winter collection to be offered in the extended sizing, with plans for this to be rolled out to all clothing in the future. 

The brand’s bestselling Maddison dress is first the first time available in inclusive sizing.

“It’s a proud moment for us to have taken this huge step in the right direction,” adds Rix. “We’re not perfect, but for us this is only the beginning – with more sizes already in the pipeline. We’re excited to learn people’s feedback on our extended size offering and use this to develop and perfect our collections moving forwards.” 

This isn’t the brand’s first foray into extended sizing. Last year, as part of American retailer Target’s Designer Dress collection, Rixo dipped its toe into offering its cult-status dresses from a UK size 6 to 24. The response from its customer base encouraged Rix and McCloskey to further develop the fit and sizing of its pieces.
