Plus size women will tell you that it can be a nightmare to shop for fun and fast fashion that actually flatters their shape and fits perfectly – models and mannequins somehow always seem to be a size 4, 6 or 8, and garments never look the same on them as they do real people!
Thankfully, high street saviours Evans are here to plug this gap with sizes 14-32; stocking great quality and fashionable attire that fits in with current trends and seasons rather than insisting on a one-size-fits-all approach that looks better designed for middle-aged women than those of university-attending age.

Here at Student Squirrel we are committed to showing you clever learners what discounts you’re entitled to and how you can save more on your fabulous fashion purchases at evans.co.uk.
1. HOW TO GET THE EVANS STUDENT DISCOUNT
So the great news is that there is a standard Evans student discount for 10% (correct as of October 2020). This is valid both online and in-store and we’ve found out you can use it on both full-price and sales items.
This is a boon as most student discount schemes are for full-priced items only. Hurray! And this is how you get it:
HOW TO GET THE ONLINE STUDENT DISCOUNT CODE
- Go to this special page on evans.co.uk and make your purchases.
- Head to Student Beans and verify your student status and you’ll be issued with a temporary voucher code.
- At the online checkout enter the Student Beans code.
- You’ll get an amazing 10% reduction.
- Laugh all the way to the union bar and buy your mates around (this is optional).
But what if you’re in an Evans store?
Now to worry, here is how you get the money off in this instance:
- Verify your student status with Student Beans
- Show your Student Beans id to the cashier
- They will knock off that vital 10%
But the potential savings don’t stop there. In the next chapter, we show you some more great ways that you can save.GET STUDENT DISCOUNT >

As the student discount market is quite dispersed in the UK it can be confusing to find out exactly what student discounts avid learners are entitled to.
The 3 biggest ones are NUS, UNiDAYS and Student Beans and each of them has a different offering. We get asked a lot whether there is an Evans student discount through these schemes so we’ve done some extensive researching so we can answer your questions properly!
THE UNIDAYS EVANS DISCOUNT

EVANS NUS DISCOUNT?
So this is a tad confusing so bear with us. There is no NUS Evans scheme at the moment for students to save. This includes not being included in the NUS Extra card scheme.
HOWEVER, NUS students can still get an Evans discount through the UNiDAYS scheme and get the voucher.

HISTORY OF THE BRAND
Evans was founded in 1930 by businessman and manufacturing expert Jack Green, who spotted a gap in the market for curvy women looking for fashionable attire. It remained a private company for 40 years but was then bought by the Arcadia Group in 1970 and made public. Using their existing retail portfolio and expertise to grow the business, Evans became part of the family of successful retail brands including Topshop, Topman, Ms Selfridge and Dorothy Perkins.
Mail-order purchases were introduced and celebrity endorsements and collaborations began, which helped nurture the Evans name to levels not reached before. Infamous plus-sized model Crystal Renn jumped on-board as well as musician Beth Ditto, and the website opened not long after. Following rapid growth and popularity in the UK and Ireland, Evans launched in the US in 2011 and the same year began offering delivery to over 100 countries worldwide.
Today, over 300 stores on Britain’s towns and cities’ high streets offer fantastic plus-sized fashion in sizes 14-32 to women all over, as well as across the globe. Limited collections sell out quickly and shopping malls compete to host Evans stores in their buildings. Yet we think this is the beginning – the future is curvy and bright!
