Her clothes three chief features are bright colors, patterns and clothes that fit the natural contour of the womens body.Jill tries to add new clothes to her range every month and opts to use natural fibres for many of her designs.

Big Girls United (BGU): Founded by fashion designer Tasha Hill in 2002, this plus size womens clothing range was inspired by Tasha's older sister, a plus-size woman. Tasha's sister wholeheartedly thought that retail chains should cater more for her size group and was dissatisfied with what was on offer.

This dissatisfaction lead to prosperity when Tasha and her sister united to create Big Girls United. One of there main goals was to eliminate the preconceived notion that bigger girls should hide there bodies with dark clothes, they have instead opted to douse their designs with vibrant colours to highlight the beautiful curves rather then hide them.

He houses a collection titled Plus-U, a line that is reinventing the term full figured.
