Mela Purdie- Another Down Under Gem!

…My aim is always to create luxurious yet simple clothes that make dressing easy…

Ladies, how often can you find, in your size, comfort, class, quality, and style?
As I promised, I bring to you another amazing designer from down under who designs with your curves in mind! With a size range up to a 5x, yes a 5x, Mela Purdie, who hails from Australia, fashions a clothing line that provides “a solution to dressing for life on the move.”

For the jet- setting discerning Curvy Fashionista, Mela Purdie provides first class solutions for the Jet-Setting first class curvy fashionista.

When it comes to effortless style, Mela Purdie illustrates style as being “about the individual. You wear the clothes the clothes don’t wear you, so my clothes are designed to skim and not cling, to move and stretch with you, to layer and interact creating solutions as seasons change and as your mood moves from one occasion to the next. My aim is always to create luxurious yet simple clothes that make dressing easy.”

Mela Purdie- Clothes That Travel With You

Without sacrificing style (and you know that is lovely), Mela Purdie designs with comfort in mind. What is fabulous about this line is that all of her fashions contour the body, do not cling, but contour your shape, under the bust, and around the waist.

So what makes Mela Purdie fabulous for the Jet- Setter? Mela Purdie’s clothes are comfortable in all climates, do not crush, retain their shape, and are washable, wearable and durable. How is that possible?

Mela Purdie- Clothes that travel with youMela Purdie knows the importance of fabrics, as they are the closest thing to your skin. I am the hugest fabric snob. If it does not feel like butter on my skin, I will not wear it! I am the biggest advocate of natural fabrics- allowing them to breathe, drape, and wear wonderfully.

Mela Purdie fashions her garments from amazing fabrics. From her site, Mela Purdie uses:

  • Luxurious Matt Jersey that drapes and skims without clinging.
  • Softline Jersey combines floaty styles and the drama of volume without the bulk and weight.
  • Stretch Twill Suiting moves and travels with you.

While I am still researching and awaiting a response, the only place that I have been able to find a place to buy Mela Purdie is at Currently, the collection is available up through a size Australian 24! 

Should I be able to find exactly where you can buy this amazing label, I will update you! If you know where you can get your lovely hands on this, please share and I will reference this with you fellow Curvy Fashionistas.

In the meantime, check out her fashions and sign up for the catalogue at!

Keep it Curvy!
