As we bid farewell to Hulu’s Shrill, we’d be remiss if we didn’t pay our dues to one of the best plus-size wardrobes ever to grace our TV.
For three seasons, Shrill gave Annie incredible outfits including dresses, leather jackets, and sexy lingerie.
The wardrobe was truly a labor of love between star Aidy Bryant and costume designer Amanda Needham, who essentially had to make most of the looks from scratch.
In 2019, Amanda admitted to Vox,
“I think maybe I had a little ego about it. Aidy knew going in that this was going to be a struggle, and I was like, ‘Oh, there’s stuff for you out there, don’t worry! I’m about to show you the world, and it’s going to be amazing.’ Then we ordered all this stuff and when it came in, it was terrible — all polyblend and so cheap. I was like, where are they even buying this fabric? It was borderline insulting. And the sad truth is there was nothing out there. It was a dead zone.”
“Truly, designing this show would have been impossible to do off the rack. You actually cannot create a look for a plus-size character without a tailor and the resources to create customized pieces for their body.”
Amanda and Aidy worked closely to curate a personal style for Annie. Aidy said that she would often send Amanda and would go from there.
She recently told Who What Wear,
“Usually each season, I would pull images from Instagram or people who I thought had cool style, put it together in a mood board, and then send it to Amanda. And then she would take the sleeve off of this thing and this off of that and choose a bunch of fabrics, and we would text back and forth.”
So, to honor the end of Shrill and Annie’s incredible wardrobe, we did some hunting (ok, a lot of hunting) to find some affordable lookalikes so you can get Annie’s style for yourself.
Check it out below (warning: major spoilers ahead).
