In the course of making face masks from patterns found online, a new issue popped up out of left field.
Plus size people often have bigger (super fabulous) faces, and the patterns didn’t take this into account. Fuller cheeks, double chins, etc. This presented a design and inclusivity issue.
Seeing this, i’ve put together a list of fashion designers who are selling FABULOUUUUS face masks for COVID-19, specifically masks for plus size and fat faces.
Note: In this blog post I use the term “fat” to reclaim a term often used in online hatred and bullying. If you don’t identify with that word, carry on! I’m not using it to describe you or your super wonderful face. <3

Brand #4: Plus Size Face Masks: Copper Union ($18)
Another indie fashion favorite is Copper Union, a plus owned indie fashion brand out of Portland, OR. I did an interview with the brand’s founder and designer, Claire Doody, here!
From the brand: “These plus sizemasks are two layers of 100% cotton and machine washable. They are made with cotton twill tape ties that can be tied two different ways, behind the head and nape of the neck or around your ears. When the straps are your desired length you can cut them and tie a little knot in the end so it doesn’t fray. Now I also offer ear loops as well! Make sure to wash mask after each trip outside and keep your cute faces covered. Any mask can be made in a kiddo size too, just drop me an email.“
