Claire Richards uses her experience with fluctuating weight to design a perfect collection

Singer Claire Richards has launched her second stylish collection for Fashion World – with sizes from 12 to 32.

When she first joined Steps in the 1990s, Claire was snapped in crop tees and hipster jeans, but now she favours elegant dresses and pretty tops that flatter all types of figures.

‘I think it’s important to have something you feel both comfortable and glamorous in which I know sometimes is quite difficult especially if you are plus-size because there’s such little choice out there,’ Claire, 36, explained at her Haymarket Hotel Tea Party launch.

The star’s own dress size has fluctuated over the years between sizes 8 and 20. Last year Claire was a size 16 but has now slimmed to a 12.

Whatever her shape she always looks great.
