Plus-size, curvy, large. Whatever you want to call yourself, we all have one thing in common: the trial and error of shopping. This list will help you find your next favorite store that carries your size. Best thing is, they’re online. I get anxiety walking into a store to shop because the larger clothes are typically flowy and plain boring or the cute clothes aren’t in my size. These stores show style and give hope to the large following of plus-size women.
1. Rue 21 ($)
They’re inexpensive but that doesn’t make the quality bad. I love this store and I can usually find a coupon to make it cheaper. I have several bathing suits and shorts and shirts from them and they’re great. They have a great selection and the price is outstandingly affordable.
2. Torrid ($$$$)
Torrid is full of fashion. It’s the plus size and more conservative sister to Hot Topic. They’re pretty pricey but I have a few pieces from this store and for the most part, they’re reliable. I give them a 4.5 out of 5 stars.
3. Forever 21 ($)
I’m slightly hesitant to order from this store because the sizes are back and forth but it’s great the prices are low and they’re really fashionable.
4. Dia&Co. ($$$)
This company is a box company. You sign up for a delivery system that can be between twice a month or every other month. It’s neat because you explain your style through a questionnaire and you can connect your social media (Pinterest, Instagram, etc.) and they can get a glimpse of your style. You also set out your budget, the lowest tier was $40-$70, which means any one of the five items you’ll receive in the box will be priced between that. They have a discount where you’ll save 20% if you buy all five items in your box.
5. Maurices ($$$)
I’ve been buying dresses and jeans from Maurices for years. They’re one of the first stores that made me want to dress nicely. This store is reliable and has fashionable items.
6. Amazon ($-$$$)
Amazon is one of the greatest online stores in the world (if not the greatest). It changed Black Friday shopping and Christmas shopping forever. It also has some great plus-size clothes. It’s also reliable because people actually leave comments and ratings.
7. Boohoo.com ($$$)
Fashion. Fashion. Fashion. This site has all of the razzle dazzles and it’s connected to Kylie Jenner. It’s a tad pricey but the clothes are super cute.
8. Gamiss.com ($)
Discounts galore. Cute clothes that can make an impact on any body type. Check it out and see how much you can save.
(BONUS) Old Navy ($$)
I’ve been a fan of Old Navy dresses since I was in the 7th grade (that was eight years ago). They fit and they’re flattering. They also have rad sales throughout the year.
