About Universal Standard
Created by two friends who felt the extreme divide in styles manufactured for “regular” and “plus” sizes in the fashion industry, Universal Standard breaks down the existing barriers around sizing to give everyone fashion freedom by selling high quality clothing across categories in sizes 00-40. They are also changing the way brands represent sizing by ensuring every piece is shot in every size so you can really see how a product will fit on your body type.
Universal Standard not only focuses on making sizing more inclusive, but also making the fashion industry more sustainable. They recently introduced their Recycle Program that helps consumers reset their closet and be a responsible consumer. They partnered with Marimole, a textile recycling company that uses the fabric from old clothes to make every day necessities, to allow you to recycle 1-4 pieces of old clothing. Once they accept the pieces, Universal Standard will provide a credit $25 per recycled piece (up to $100) to shop for new clothing on their site and give your closet the refresh you’ve been looking for. They accept any brand clothing in this program.
Universal Standard also recently launched their virtual stylist program where you can work with a professional stylist for free. Get opinions on your wardrobe like what you’re missing from your closet, what styles you should try, and how you can style the pieces you currently have in your closet. Plus, for a limited time, if you chat with a stylist you’ll receive 15% off any purchase made during your appointment. A good option to use after you fall in love with Universal Standard through your Mystery Box.
