I’ve recently been trying to find some patterns in my size on the BurdaStyle website, and have been incredibly frustrated about not being able to search patterns or sort patterns by something as basic as size.

I’m plus sized, so the majority of BurdaStyle patterns don’t come close to fitting me. Those that are available in my size don’t always have “plus” in the title. I am, therefore, probably missing out on some lovely patterns that I just don’t know are available. I’m sure this also affects petites and other hard-to-fit sizes.

If there’s one thing I could change about the website, it would be to add this super-basic functionality.

    I agree with your post. There should be some kind of advanced search system, where one of the search options you get to choose is size, rather than just searching for a broad topic, and then narrowing from there, and then sorting through the patterns.

    I am plus as well and every other lovely pattern I find is 38. Then I go look up what size 38 means here on burda. Then I look at my size and realize I need… larger. Please make this feature!

    i think there should be a size search too. it would make it easier to find the plus, petit, or tall patterns :) you can search by size on the german however, if you don’t read german you might want to plug it into google translate.

    Yes! I look at plus size but alot of the patterns only go upto 52! It would be good to be able to search in english/other languages than german.

    (yes, i realise this was posted years ago, but worth a try :)
