Australian talk host Chrissie Swan has partnered with retailer Big W to launch a plus fashion range called Chrissie Swan for Avella.

The line is a result of Swan’s frustration with the lack of quality plus size clothing available to women.

The Logie winner told Channel Nine’s Today Show, ‘I have looked for good clothes for a very long time and they are hard to find. ‘So I begged and pleaded Big W “please, please can you let me do it,” and they were so kind, and they let me do it which is great.’

The new fashion range is available in sizes 18-28 and it includes affordable plus size dresses and separates.  Swan who is a fan favorite shares,” I’m so excited to bring you this collection. From me to you. A range that’s wearable, on-trend, and won’t break the bank.”

Here are a few of our favorite items from the range.




Big W does not ship internationally so this label is only available in Australia.

    I have just sat down to eat my breakfast and opened the Big W catalogue. What did I come across, but Chrissie Swan launching her own fashion line by Avella at Big W. Talk about choking on my ricecake! I am on my weightloss journey now, and seeing those photos of Chrissie in her new line have just given me even more incentive to lose the weight as I have now vowed to never again step into Big W Avella clothing AGAIN!

    You’re gorgeous Chrissie! You’re always beautiful and has certainly thought beautifully of larger ladies’ fashions. I appreciate Big W for their endorsement on your work. Your effort to make those fuller women look cool will definitely result in tremendous success. Just had a look on those and loved them. BTW, I am also engaged in plus size fashions. Together surely we can make some difference. Cheers!
