Fashion Consumption By Plus-Sized Consumers: a Socio-Material Perspective

Using socio-materiality perspectives to explore fashion consumption practices of plus-sized consumers, this study finds that consumers attempt to maintain fashion assemblages despite factors that continually threaten to destabilize them. Fashion consumption is discussed as a process that must continuously be reproduced by consumers who seek embeddedness in desired fashion systems.
