September 19, 2022

Throughout September we're celebrating 10 years since the launch of Apples & Pears Clothing.
For the past decade we have been bringing you beautiful, comfortable outfits in sizes 16 to 32, helping you to look and feel fantastic. And we just can’t wait to see what the next 10 years will bring!
Although Apples & Pears Clothing is big on style and comfort, we are still a small business, and we wouldn’t be here without the support of you, our loyal customers. So, a huge thanks for shopping with us!
As a little sign of our appreciation, if you shop online between now and the end of September 2022 we will send you a free handbag with your order – and who doesn’t need another handbag, right?!
Over the years there have been so many highlights for us that we wanted to share just a few with you.


Becoming a friend of the queens
 

Miss voluptuous pageant contestants wearing apples and pears clothing

Apples & Pears Clothing has been a proud sponsor of the Miss Voluptuous Pageants for a number of years now, celebrating women with curves who want to make a difference. 

We particularly love it when the pageant queens pop in to visit us and model from our range. 



Working out with MissFits Workouts
 

We have been really excited to link up with the fab-u-lous Becky Scott of MissFits Workout, an organisation which encourages people to exercise because they love their body, not because they hate it.  

MissFits Workout offers fun, fat-friendly fitness sessions and when Becky decided to launch a range of active wear perfect for bigger bodies, we were only too pleased to stock it in our store. Check out the range online.




Model behaviour
 

Where would we be without our amazing models? Over the past ten years we have worked with so many wonderful models, with some familiar faces still with us who were there at the start. We love seeing our outfits styled up and ready for a photoshoot or for the catwalk. From the start we made a vow to show you real life images of our models and our outfits – no filters, no airbrushing, just honest photography which shows how great Apples & Pears clothing looks in reality and we remain true to that promise. 




A&P on tour 

We love love love meeting our customers and have been lucky enough to take part in a whole host of exciting events over the years. From Suffolk Fashion Week to the Curve Fashion Festival in Liverpool, and many more in between, there is nothing quite like the feeling of seeing A&P outfits strutted on the catwalk or meeting loyal customers in person who we have only previously known over our socials. As you would expect, the Covid pandemic put pay to many of these events for a time, but we are primed and ready to get out on the road again! Keep an eye on our socials for information on upcoming events. 

 

Opening Apples & Pears HQ 

Our base at The Hythe in Colchester is a hub of activity. It’s where we plan our future collections and where we pack your beautiful outfits when you place an order with us online. It’s the location for many of our photoshoots and we hold evening events here every now and then so shoppers can come and view the full collection. Follow us on Facebook and Insta to make sure you don’t miss out on future events.
