Starting a Plus Size Clothing Business

Starting a Plus Size Clothing Business

In this communiqu茅, retail and eCommerce consulting brand, Your Retail Coach (YRC) addresses aspiring entrepreneurs on starting a plus size clothing business. In consideration of the novelty of this product category and various emerging challenges faced by apparel businesses, YRC's team of retail and eCommerce consultants speaks on addressing these challenges and emerging as a successful and sustainable brand.

Is the business idea of starting a plus size clothing enterprise based on any prevailing expertise or influence or in the view of any standing or emerging market or industry opportunity? The answer to this question influences the rest of the deliberations involved in starting a plus size clothing business. When such a ground of leverage is identified it becomes the guiding light based on which the rest of the business planning is done before other adjustable elements come into play. Trying to find answers to the following questions should help in this regard.

路 Why a plus size clothing business?
路 Is there any technical expertise or experience in this line of business?
路 Is there any business or any kind of presence in the value chain of another organisation?

Market research is an indispensable requirement before opening any business. Plus size clothing startups are no exception. As a provider of clothing business consulting services ( ), YRC always maintains that despite any existing vantage point or expertise, the market conditions must be suitable for business. These conditions include demand, demographics, buying and consumption behaviour, production and source of inventories, quality
control, channel and distribution, etc. Market research helps find out insights into the market condition. Market research should be planned and performed with the end objectives in sight. The end objectives of market research are actionable insights with all-inclusive coverage of the key areas relevant to the business idea in question. If required, using the services of retail and eCommerce consulting firms for market research should also be taken into consideration.

饾棩饾棽饾棻饾棽饾棾饾椂饾椈饾椂饾椈饾棿 饾棭饾棶饾椆饾槀饾棽 饾棧饾椏饾椉饾椊饾椉饾榾饾椂饾榿饾椂饾椉饾椈

The value offered is one of the key magnetisms to attract customers. A fashion business ( ) could outshine the competition simply with its ingenuity in digital marketing. But such tactics do not have a long-lasting impact. Soon some other brand will copy and improvise upon it and own their share of the limelight. Finding and sustaining an enduring value proposition has become both more interesting and challenging in the apparel sector. Today, plus size is both a reality and a fashion. Businesses must include both these elements in finding value propositions, business modelling, and branding.

饾棩饾棽饾榾饾椉饾椈饾棶饾榿饾椂饾椈饾棿 饾槃饾椂饾榿饾椀 饾棖饾槀饾榾饾榿饾椉饾椇饾棽饾椏饾榾

While every brand is trying to be different, in reality, no brand is actually coming out as different in the eyes of customers. They all look the same unless there is a strong resonance with the people for whom the offerings are intended for. In other words, brands must resonate with the target segment(s). This resonance is echoed in branding, digital marketing, channel strategy, platforms of advertising, product mix, product design, clothing material, pricing, and other relevant areas. Consistency in these resonances draws customers closer to a brand. Every time a customer experiences a resonance emitted by a brand, it solidifies the bonding and loyalty between them.

饾棗饾椂饾棿饾椂饾榿饾棶饾椆 饾棤饾棶饾椏饾椄饾棽饾榿饾椂饾椈饾棿 饾槃饾椂饾榿饾椀 饾棝饾槀饾椇饾棶饾椈 饾棫饾椉饾槀饾棸饾椀

Having a strong digital presence is advantageous for both online and offline enterprises. Customers use the internet as a routine source of information. This includes information about brands and products available on the internet. They use this information to form opinions, make decisions, and do comparisons and assessments to their satisfaction. Having an online storefront or even a website or presence on popular social media platforms provides validation to customers. Online presence may not directly add to the sales of offline businesses but it gives them more equivalence with their online and omnichannel competitors. It also gives them the foundational experience of dealing with digital marketing which later proves useful when they take up eCommerce.
With all being said, being online is not just a matter of channel anymore. It needs to be seen as brand presence on online platforms with a humanised touch.

饾棩饾椉饾棷饾槀饾榾饾榿 饾棦饾椊饾棽饾椏饾棶饾榿饾椂饾椉饾椈饾棶饾椆 饾棧饾椆饾棶饾椈饾椈饾椂饾椈饾棿

When it comes to the strength of operations planning, the magnitude and scale of a business are not material. The strength of operations planning is a key distinguishing ground among businesses. That includes all apparel businesses including ones dealing in plus size merchandising. From procurement and inventory management to home delivery and customer service, every business process ( ) needs precise planning for precise execution. It helps businesses keep their operations on track and on schedule and as per the established standards. Any brand or business is prone to operational blunders if its operations planning is not up to the mark.

饾棛饾椂饾椈饾棶饾椈饾棸饾椂饾棶饾椆 饾棶饾椈饾棻 饾棖饾椉饾椇饾椇饾棽饾椏饾棸饾椂饾棶饾椆 饾棧饾椆饾棶饾椈饾椈饾椂饾椈饾棿

Financial and commercial appraisals constitute a central requirement for all businesses. Apart from the basic assessment areas like sales/revenue, costing, P/L, ROI, etc., purchase and inventory scheduling attains a noteworthy place for clothing businesses. Planning the purchase of inventory is tricky in clothing businesses because of demand fluctuations emanating from variations in fashion trends and preferences.

Some of the important areas of attention in F&C planning are:

路 Revenue and Sales Projections
路 Inventory Scheduling, Purchase Planning
路 Estimated P/L Reports
路 Breakeven, ROI and ROC analyses
