Let Us Be Your Fashion Consultants...


BIG In Black is a wonderland for the ladies with a fuller figure, catering for every occasion. As seen on A Current Affair and Woman's Day.


Victoria and Clotaire launched their label BIG IN BLACK in 2000. Their first store soon grew to 20 plus size labels so they had to move down the road. We cater for local, interstate and overseas clients.

We have the classically elegant styles, casual wear to the more funky flamboyant, with "to die for" evening wear.

We stock 20 different labels. We specialise in Eveningwear, Mother of the bride, sizes 8-34 Bridesmaids, sizes 6-34 Wedding dresses. One of the best plus size stores around Melbourne.


We stock businesswear sizes 12-30 and casualwear sizes 12-34.
