This blog post is dedicated to all my curvy babes out there. I love shopping for clothes, and I want to be able to wear cute clothes that don't break the bank and don't make me look like a complete and total grandma. So, I am sharing some of the amazing places out there for purchasing plus size clothes so you can wear all my fave clothes. I am going to share some exclusively plus size shops with you along with some stores that just have great plus-size sections then I am going to finish up the list with a few subscription services that are geared toward plus size clothing!
When I have actually shopped with the site and have pictures of me in their clothes, I will share those pictures with you.
Also, I have created a 100% free cheat sheet that you can download by clicking the button below. This is a condensed version of all the information I shared with you today. I included the store, the store URL, the type of store (plus size brand, brand with plus section, or plus size subscription), along with the sizes they sell. I hope this will make the shopping process easier for you!
Exclusively Plus Size Stores
The following stores sell exclusively plus size clothing. I love shopping at stores like this because I feel that they get it a lot more than stores with plus size sections. I feel like on average they have better stuff that is a better quality for us girls with curves.
Torrid has easily become one of my favorite plus size stores out there. Shout out to my friend Brianna for introducing me to this store and taking me to this shop for the first time. I am obsessed with Torrid and they have SO many cute items all the time. Torrid sells clothes from sizes 10-30 so you are bound to find something cute to love!
I have a growing little collection of Torrid clothes and it's definitely been my favorite place to shop this fall. I am in love with all the cute velvet pieces they had for the fall/winter.

Here are a few pieces from Torrid I have been eyeing with envy. If you like anything you see, it's linked if you click on the picture.
I don't shop at Lane Bryant often, but they have some pretty cute things on their site. They also have the absolute best bras for plus size ladies with their Cacique line of intimates. I have seriously had my Cacique bra for years and it has just recently started being not the best when I went to graduate school (I got it in high school!) I feel like if you are a plus sized lady, you have probably shopped at the store at least once, and they do have some pretty amazing looks. Lane Bryant sells sizes 14-28.
Here are some cute items I have been eyeing:
Kimono Sleeve Top; $59.95
Sequin Cowl Neck Top; $79.95
Earlier this year I got to work with ELOQUII on a post and I fell in love with all their beautiful clothes. ELOQUII sells clothes for sizes 14-28.
I got this dress and hat courtesy of ELOQUII a few months back. This outfit can be seen on the blog What To Do When You Feel Uninspired By Your Wardrobe.
Here are some amazing pieces from ELOQUII that I have been loving:
I blame all the plus size YouTubers for introducing me to the Fashion To Figure brand. They have some amazing stuff at reasonable prices and I always find something to adore when I go to the Fashion To Figure website. Fashion To Figure has amazing clothes, amazing jeans, and so much more on the site. Fashion To Figure serve sizes 12-24.
This top was from Fashion To Figure, and was recently featured on my post: The Happy Arkansan's Fall Essentials With Advil® Liqui-Gels® Minis.
I got this vest from Fashion To Figure. It can be see in the post Why I Wish I Took More Photos In College.
Here are a couple of cute pieces from Fashion To Figure:
I have never personally shopped at Ashley Stewart, but I have heard amazing things about the brand. Ashley Stewart serves sizes 12-32 which I think is amazing because they help such a wide variety of women with amazing clothing.
Here are a few pieces from Ashley Stewart I wouldn't mind having in my closet:
Stores With Amazing Plus Size Sections
There are many stores with amazing plus sizes selections. A lot of plus size only stores have very few physical locations or they are online only. So, here are a few stores that are plus size friendly in my opinion.
If you know me at all, you know I LOVE Old Navy. Like, I can't say that enough, y'all. I have been shopping there consistently since the summer before I went to graduate school. My friend Elle reintroduced me to the amazingness of Old Navy when I was going through my last week of college and it sparked a love affair with this brand. I don't usually shop from their plus section because their women's section goes up to size 20 and I am an 18-20 in all of my clothes. They do have a pretty amazing plus size section, though. Old Navy serves women sizes 00-20 in their women's section and 16-30 in their plus section.
This dress is from Old Navy. This can be found on the post Why I Wish I Took More Photos In College.
I found this romper at Old Navy. This romper can be seen on the post 12 Ways To Be More Positive Today.
The above clothes just came from the Women's section of Old Navy.
Here are some cute clothes from the plus section of Old Navy:
Karen Kane is the maker of one of my ABSOLUTE favorite pieces in my wardrobe--my extra sparkly dress. I got this in a Gwynnie Bee box if I remember correctly, and I decided to purchase and keep it. It is so beautiful and perfect for any holiday, albeit a bit scratch-y, but what sparkly dress isn't scratch-y? Karen Kane sells sizes 2-22.
The following picture as seen on 10 Things All Millennials Should Do During The Holiday Season.
Here are a few pieces from Karen Kane that I am loving:
Please do not sleep on Forever21! They have some amazing and cute clothes for sale for plus size ladies! I mean, you can get denim from them that's plus size for as low as $12.90, not on sale! They have amazing prices, even on their plus clothes which is what I love about them. Forever21 sells clothes in sizes XS-3X.
I don't have any pictures of myself in their jeans (the jeans I am wearing in the picture below are the Rockstar jeans from Old Navy.) I got this adorable shirt from Forever21 and I wore this to see Beyonce in Nashville last year:
Here are a few pieces from Forever21 Plus that I love:
While, I have never personally shopped from ModCloth, I know that they make amazingly high quality clothing pieces. One of my fave Instagrammers, Brittney Guest is obsessed with ModCloth and always makes me jealous with all her cute ModCloth clothes and art. ModCloth sells clothes in sizes XXS-4X.
Here are a few pieces I am obsessed with:
I don't believe I have ever gotten anything from Dressbarn, but I have browsed at a Dressbarn before and I loved what I saw when I went to the store. Dressbarn has a pretty amazing plus size section though. Dressbarn serves sizes 2-24.
Here are a few beautiful pieces from the brand:
A few years ago I worked with eShakti on a collaboration (that's no longer on this blog when I moved from Blogger to Wordpress and to be honest, you wouldn't want to see those pictures.) I love the diversity of sizes you can get on the eShakti website, in fact eShakti serves women size 0-36!
Excuse the awful picture in my eShakti flamingo dress, 2015 was a different time for my blog. My flamingo dress is still one of my favorite dresses I own.
Here are a few eShakti products I am obsessed with right now:
When I look back on my time finding places to get super cute plus clothes, Maurices was one of the first companies I got clothing from. I have acquired so many pieces from Maurices over the years, and I will always look at them fondly for opening the gate for me to see all the fun plus size clothing that's out there. Maurices offers size 0-28.
I got this cute dress from Maurices forever ago. You can see this dress in more detail on the post Why Snacking Is Important In College.
Here are a few cute pieces from Maurices:
As far back as I can remember, I have been shopping at Cato because there was one in the town that I am from. I always love checking out the clothes they have in store because I can always find something cute. Cato offers clothes for women size 2-36.
The pants in this shot are from Cato. You can find this outfit in the post 5 More Things You Should Know Before Graduate School.
Here are some cute pieces from Cato:
Plus Size Subscription Services
Lastly, I wanted to leave you with a couple of subscription services you can use for plus size clothing so that if you don't like shopping for yourself, you can use these services to shop for you!
Gwynnie Bee was one of the first subscription try-on services for plus women I had ever heard of. Gwynnie Bee is great because they actually want you to keep the clothes for as long as you want as long as you have a membership with them. Gwynnie Bee has different plans for being able to have a certain amount of pieces out (most people get the 1, 2, or 3 piece out at a time boxes.) You get the clothes, try them on, wear them to your events, etc. then you send back what you are finished with. You can also buy clothes you really love at a discount. The purpose of Gwynnie Bee isn't always to get you to buy, but you can if you want to. Gwynnie Bee offers clothes for women size 10-32.
Gwynnie Bee introduced me to my favorite kimono of all time from BB Dakota. I got this kimono in a box and it wore on my mind, a few months later I picked this up on sale at another store. You can see this kimono in the post Why Snacking Is Important In College.
Dia & Co is quite different from Gwynnie Bee in that the purpose is to expand your at home wardrobe, not swap out their pieces. So, you have a personal shopper with Dia & Co who picks a box full of things for you to try on and see if you want to keep them. You get to have them at home for a certain length of time, but they are due back to Dia & Co in 5 days. Dia & Co provides clothing for women size 14-32.
Here is a video talking more about the process:
So, there you have it. This post took me hours to compile, but I am so proud of the final result. I hope that this post will help all my curvy followers find beautiful clothes that speak to them. You should never feel less confident just because you have more meat on your bones.
