Designer Rachel Roy is releasing a plus size collection, called RACHEL Rachel Roy Curvy, so get ready to want to spend all your money! But before you sigh thinking you're going to have to wait months for this release, stop right there — the collection is available a lot sooner than you might think. In fact, you can start shopping right this very moment! Yes, you read that correctly. As a part of Rachel Roy's lower priced line, some pieces from the Curvy Collection are currently available at select Macy's locations and online at Macys.com. The collection will also be available to shop via Rachel Roy's own online shop in March, according to a brand representative.
The sizes in this bohemian chic collection range from 14 to 24. According to Refinery 29, the collection will offer the same pieces as the straight size range, save a few subtle differences, unlike many other brands that often make completely separate collections for larger sizes. Plus, all the pieces ring in for less than $179, so even your wallet can get excited.
Seriously though, this collection is beyond pretty and affordable and already available to shop. What more could a girl ask for? Check out the pieces here on Macys.com, and peep some of my favorites from the line below. Don't hold back when filling your cart — these gorgeous designs are perfect for a spring/summer wardrobe. Another amazing thing about this collection? The promotion photos were shot with the gorgeous plus-size model, Candice Huffine. So if you haven't already fallen in love with the bohemian, gorgeous pieces, just check these out.

Here are a few other recent plus size releases that really show how size inclusivity is slowly but surely gaining traction in the fashion industry. After all, sporting a body positive message is always in fashion.
1. Forever 21 Activewear
Plus Size Insert Capri Leggings, $24.90, forever21.com
Forever 21 started 2016 with a bang by launching its first ever plus size activewear line. The brand has previously offered plus size clothing options, but not activewear. Now the brand carries stylish, smart workout pieces in plenty of sizes and at super affordable prices.
2. Beth Ditto
Modern Love Jumpsuit - Liquid Black, $395, shop.bethditto.com
Beth Ditto, AKA general badass and amazing fashionista, released her own eponymous plus size collection earlier in 2016. After designing a limited edition T-shirt with friend Jean Paul Gaultier, Ditto released the size 14-28 range, which was inspired by her own love of vintage clothes, silk bubble dresses, and denim jackets, according to Women's Wear Daily. Unsurprisingly, the collection is absolutely breathtaking.
3. GabiFresh x swimsuitsforall

OK, GabriFresh has been doing plus size swimwear for a while now, but her latest launch includes even more sizes. The collection will be available in sizes 12-24 D/DD and 18-24 in E/F and G/H, and will include low-rise styles, according to Racked. The cherry on top? All swimsuits are under $100. There's no doubt GabiFresh is killing in the plus size swim department, especially with head-turning styles that are beyond gorgeous.
4. Nubian Skin
Matt 15 Denier Curve Tights BERRY, $12.52, nubianskin.com
The hosiery line Nubian Skin has always been inclusive when it comes to skin tones, and now they're expanding that to more diverse sizes as well. In January, according to Nylon, Nubian Skin announced Curve, a plus size hosiery line.
5. Ashley Graham x Addition Elle
