Universal Standard Is Revamping The Way We Do Basics With Sizes 00 To 40

The Universal Standard is still setting the standard.

Beauty & Fashion

It's official: inclusivity is in, which means more and more brands are working harder to revamp the way we experience products.


The buzz word has lent itself time and time again in the beauty realm, and now clothing companies are stepping it up a notch or two with size-inclusive collections. And when we say "size-inclusive," we're not just talking your typical straight and plus sizes. Universal Standard are the latest company to make their mark in the size-inclusive world, and although the move is definitely on brand for the fashion brand, they are pushing the inclusivity envelope even further.

Since their inception back in 2015, inclusivity has always been the name of Universal Standard's game. They had an impressive debut collection ranging from sizes 10 to 28. They collaborated with Orange Is The New Black actress Danielle Brooks to roll out a capsule collection of wardrobe must-haves. And now, they have unveiled an innovative launch of basics, featuring tees that range from a whopping size 00 to 40, aka, it's lit!

The new line of T-shirts and its groundbreaking size-range is called Foundation. Per an exclusive with Glamour, "it goes from least coverage to most coverage, the way foundation does—you have a bandeau, a cami, then you have a short-sleeve T-shirt, a long-sleeve [T-shirt], then you have a turtleneck, a crewneck, and a V-neck included. We wanted to make things that were so incredibly comfortable you could wear them on their own or you could wear them underneath as a layer."

The message is clear, dope basics should be universal to all, no matter the size or shape. Be sure to sign up for Foundation waitlist here to be the first to know when the capsule collection officially launches. In the meantime, check out the collection in the slideshow below.

Kissing is interesting. When it's a good kiss, there aren't too many other things that tops it. When it (pardon the pun) sucks, there aren't too many things that you hate more. Even as I'm running through the mental rolodex of all of the kisses I've had in my life, I'm willing to bet my next freelance check that, just like I am able to, you can immediately recall the best and worst kiss that you've ever had.

I know, I know. Traditionally, the bride's parents is responsible for paying for the wedding. My family just isn't set up that way. When we decided that we were going to have a wedding, we talked openly and agreed going in that we would be covering all of the expenses, and needed to remember that with each decision.

A few months ago, I had a breakthrough. After a promotion led to me having a completely different supervisor, what was once a five-year plan to transition out of the organization I was working at, turned into five-month plan. It's a scary point in my life that I haven't found myself at before: I'm not leaving a job because I want better pay or a higher position, I want to leave simply because I'm unhappy.
