Fashion for Real Women

If you’re disappointed with the current offerings of women’s clothing, you’re not alone.  Many women are frustrated with what is in the marketplace in terms of sizing and style.

Female bodies come in all shapes and sizes and we fully embrace this truth at Curious and Brave. Curious and Brave is a collection of capsule wardrobe pieces for real women sized 6 to 20. Our garments are designed to fit and flatter no matter what your shape.

Fashion for Real Women

We understand the challenges that women, especially older women face with purchasing high quality, stylish and well-fitting clothes.

Personally designed by founder Leanne, each capsule piece is designed with the end in mind. Will the fit be flattering to a size 8 and a size 18? How does the fabric work with the design? How many different ways can it be worn?

We offer three different types of pant styles (Classic, Slim and Wide Leg) as we know not all pants work for everyone. Depending on your body type, a wide leg or a classic leg might suit. If you’re petite, a wide leg culotte is a stylish and flattering choice.

Our clothing designs also incorporate comfort and convenience into our garments. Our slip dresses (a key basic of our collection) feature pockets as well as wide adjustable straps to adjust the fit of the dress and cover your bra strap.

We also pay attention to fabric in designing stylish and comfortable clothing for our customers. Here at Curious and Brave, we utilise the natural material of linen. The linen we use is exceptionally high European grown quality, which meets OEKO standards. Our linen garments are designed to be cool and comfortable, ideal for those dressing for menopause.
