2. Resale clothes that fit ALL bodies

“I’m plus-size and have been plus-sized my entire life. It’s been hard for me to find clothing, especially things that speak to my personal style. A great way for a person to live their truth is to show it through the clothes they wear. Quake was born out of that.”

Kayla Stinnett, HBIC Quake Plus Size

They have a range of fashionable styles and sizes. It’s not just “men’s” and “women’s” but a mix of plus size clothes that appeals to all gender identities.

Later this month, Quake will open an e-commerce site for shopping online. You can also find them at their next pop-up shop at Cahaba Brewing, an event celebrating womxn and craft beer.

3. Clothes reflect OUR community

“I source clothing from thrift stores, consigment ships, and the community in Birmingham. We try to be inclusive as possible not only in sizes but gender identities.”

Kayla Stinnett, HBIC Quake Plus Size

If you’re looking to focus on a more sustainable wardrobe, then you’ll want to shop at Quake Plus Size. The founder, Kayla Stinnett, finds most of the clothes from people in the community and thrift stores.
