In my opinion, body positivity should be implemented and valued across all clothing brands. Although that isn't always the case, more and more companies are hopping on the inclusivity bandwagon — and it's pretty awesome to see if you ask me.

For many folks, shopping for clothes can trigger a vast variety of emotions (like one Narcity writer explains in her experience trying out Old Navy's new inclusive range). That's why we went on a hunt for brands that'll make shopping for clothes a little easier for Canadians.

Check out these 16 clothing brands that are actually doing a decent job with being inclusive, realistic and body-positive.
