Read on for the scoop!
*************************
The gargantuan gap between what’s available in plus sizes and what’s available to the rest of the world is closing. That’s to say, the online gap. While brick and mortar shopping for women above a size 12 is still lackluster at best, online retailers and filling the space with a decent – and often fab assortment of styles that don’t beckon your grandmother’s stylish but still senior sensibility.

I understand that shopping online can be a bit of a task, but it’s one that’s well worth it when you can find pieces that are fresh, current and on trend. Most retailers offer fast shipping very favorable return policies – free even. Here are 5 retailers that should be on every curvy and or plus size gal’s radar.

ASOS Curve US Sizes 14-24(www.asos.com)

Obviously, right? But for those that don’t know, ASOS Curve is a division of ASOS.com which offers varied collections from namesake brand ASOS Curve to other lesser known but equally amazing brands like Junarose, Alice & You, Carmakoma, Elomi, Little Mistress, Paper Dolls and Truly You.

Reasons to love ASOS Curve with your entire heart? Free standard shipping on $25 or more, a $12.95 year long membership for 2 day express shipping, free returns and it’s fast fashion. So fast in fact that new runway inspired trends pop up on the site daily! Shop below:

Simply Be US Sizes 10-28 (www.simplybe.com)

UK retailer Simply Be has an commerce site bursting with just about everything for your fashion fancy. There’s clothing, accessories, intimates, swimwear and even shoes. Personally, I like a lot of options so I don’t mind that there are so many product skews to sort through! But if you’re overwhelmed by too many choices, the site is broken down by trends on the homepage and you can search by items within the tool bar.

For example, the dress category has it’s own drop down where you can shop Day, Evening, Summer, Work etc. Chic! Shop here.

Madison Plus Select US Sizes 12-24 (madisonplus.com)

This site is the holy grail for contemporary and independent plus size designers. MP Select carries department store contemporary brands like MYNT 1792 and James Jeans, but you can also find really cool indie brands like Ivy + Blue and Zelie for She. There’s also incredible swimwear from super model Robyn Lawley and new personal favorite Josephine Swim. Size ranges on the site vary by designer (and there are many more options for the inbetweenie sizes like 10-18), but there are a few options for girls up to size 24.

Eloquii US Sizes 14-24(www.eloquii.com)

The second iteration of Eloquii is so much better than the first. The design, the fit, the website, not to mention their fun and engaging social media outreach – you can tell there’s so much energy put into making the shopping experience a good one. Though the focus is more on work wear, there are trendier styles like scuba midi skirts and sexy bralettes up for grabs as well. Eloquii’s Studio Collection brings the “fancy” with many stand out pieces, many of which have been featured on celebs like Melissa McCarthy and Adrienne C Moore of Orange is the New Black.

Barefoot Tess (www.longtallsally.com)

Sometimes, with a bigger body come bigger feet. Large size shoes are impossible. So, so very hard to find! (Can you tell I’m speaking from personal experience?) This is why Barefoot Tess is an oasis in an otherwise barren desert of large size shoes. In addition to the Barefoot Tess brand, you can also find Jeffery Campbell, Dolce Vita, Kelsi Dagger and Sam Edelman to name a few. The site can be hit or miss at times but it’s by far the best collection of flats, wedges, heels, sandals etc in sizes up to a US woman’s 15!

    Not plus sized, but this was a great article. Frankly, most pp I know are plus sized. I get dressed, like the way that sounds.

  3. Dee says:

    I’m not plus sized so when I see super cute stuff on Asos Curve that doesn’t also come in my size, I get so annoyed! Lol. Great post.

  4. jeda says:

    some of those models are not plus sized tho….we gotta find a way to redefine this thing, cus its all over the place. Great post nonetheless.
    Blessings

    I fall at the cusp of inbetweenie size (10) but I found this to be a great article and I also like how Claire (FBD team) listened to their readers on this topic. Keep up the good work! I’m actually going to pass the shoe website onto a coworker who needs it.

  6. S says:

    @Jeda, no matter how you “define” plus size someone will take offense to the definition. The modeling industry considers the women above as plus size. To say or implicate anything different will only serve to overshadow the intentions of this post.

    I really like some of the ASOS Curve fashions. I went to the site and saw some things I would totally wear if they were in my size. In the past I have seen things that came plus sized, bought it and had it altered to fit me because I like it just that well.

    Kudos on the on the post Claire! Now if those of us who are under 5’3 could get some “fashion love” too, that would be awesome. SMILES……………….

  7. TAMMY M. says:

    Great post Clarie, I am tall and wear a size 11 shoe. I am also curvy and this right up my alley.

    F.Y.I., Most mainstream modeling agencies consider any model a size 8 and over as plus.

    Also, the fashion industry usually defines plus size fashion with anything in the double digits. It is just that more mainstream companies have expanded their in store and online sizes. Usually size 12, in some cases 10 and up can be considered plus to some brands.

    Just love the skin your in.

  8. Styledbytye says:

    Don’t forget the store Catherine’s! I just found it. They have really cute dressed and tops at reasonable prices.

  9. Nicole says:

    Claire I just want you to know that I appreciate what you do. I have heard a lot of women ask for plus sizes and you listened. Thank you! I love the Asos line.

  10. Key says:
