Vanity Sizing

Vanity Sizing

The fashion industry has faced increasing criticism over the harmful and exclusionary practice of charging a "vanity tax" for larger sizes. This practice reinforces harmful beauty standards and perpetuates the notion that only certain body types are worthy of fashionable clothing. At Monochrome Canvas, we believe that everyone deserves access to fashionable clothing that makes them feel confident and comfortable, regardless of their size.

Despite being charged a vanity tax by many of our suppliers, we choose not to pass on this cost to our customers. Instead, we offer a wide range of sizes at a consistent price, celebrating the diversity of bodies and rejecting harmful beauty norms. We believe that fashion should be inclusive and accessible to all, and we are committed to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for all customers.

In addition to our commitment to inclusivity, we are also dedicated to ethical production and a "slow fashion" model. We prioritize quality over quantity and take steps to reduce waste and promote sustainable practices throughout our production process. This means that our customers can feel good about their purchase, knowing that they are supporting a company that values both their personal style and the health of the planet.

Our commitment to ethical production and sustainability aligns with the slow fashion movement, which seeks to create a fashion industry that is mindful of its impact on the environment and the people involved in production. We believe that this approach is not only better for the planet but also for our customers, who can feel good about their purchase knowing that it was made ethically and sustainably.

At Monochrome Canvas, we stand firmly against harmful practices like the vanity tax and harmful beauty standards. We believe that everyone deserves to feel confident and comfortable in their clothes, and we are committed to creating an inclusive and welcoming environment for all customers. We invite you to join us in this mission and shop with a company that aligns with your values and your personal style.
