Sustainable and ethical fashion is a narrow yet growing market, but something that is often left out of the sustainable fashion conversation is plus sizing.

Review: Ethical Fashion App Good On You

Over the last year, I’ve become very careful about where I buy new clothes. I’ve done a lot of research into clothing companies to make sure they have ethical practices, but with the large amount of greenwashing (when a company pretends to be more eco-friendly than it is) present in the fashion industry, it can be hard to trust a company’s website. A few months ago, I found out about the app Good On You, which has totally changed the game for me.

5 Tips For Thrifting On Apps

Thrift shopping is my favorite way to get new clothing. Giving new life to piece of clothing that still has years of wear left in it is a great way to update your closet while staying sustainable. One great way to start secondhand shopping is with some of the many apps, websites and instagram shops out there. Online thrifting is an especially great way to shop if you don’t have access to a car or live in an area without many good thrift stores. I especially love Poshmark and Depop.

However, shopping online or with an app presents a major problem for many of us: you can’t try the clothing on! And with many apps and sites, you can’t return or exchange items. As a seasoned online thrifter, I’ve rounded up some tips for how to find great pieces that will fit you well even if you can’t try them on.

If you’re one of those people, you’re in luck, because there are others who have done all the hard work for you.

Tips & Tricks For Thrift Shopping

I love thrifting. I’ve worn thrifted pieces to major events, like my college graduation and my best friend’s father’s wedding. More than half of my closet is thrifted, and I’m trying to get it to 80-100% thrifted in the near future. Some of my favorite items of clothing are the ones I had to dig for in a secondhand or consignment store.

In this post, I’m going to talk about how I thrift, my tips and tricks, and what I wish I knew starting out, as well as answer some questions I got on Instagram with the help of a few friends!
