Off the top of my head, I can think of a few great stores with tons of stylish offerings.
1. Monif C:
Home of the inimitable and universally flattering Marilyn convertible dress (above), Monif C has lots of unique dresses for the plus sized set. Though Monif’s pickings can be pricey (dresses start around $135 and go up), they reign supreme in terms of quality, style, and colors.
2. ASOS Curve
As the sister site to fashion forward ASOS.com, you can expect to find the same daring pieces for affordable prices on ASOS curve. From draped jackets to lace to jeggings, they have a boat load of punchy pieces–all in your size:
Described as, “Fashion conscious clothes for the curvy woman,” Jibri offers jumpsuits, halter neck dresses, and fun pieces like velvet dinner jackets (pictured above) for women sized 14-24. Snag a high waisted skirt for $130 or a lace overlay dress for $245.
From dresses to separates to wedding wear, Igigi is a one stop shop for all your plus sized needs. Log on to peruse styles and also read reviews on size and fit from Igigi faithfuls.
The cool online store for contemporaries recently starting sizing dresses up to 3X. Need a prim number for a date or semi formal? Modcloth has got you covered. Bonus: Prices are super affordable, averaging between $45 and $100.
Those are just a few that stand out in terms of style. Of course you can get your basics at long time retailers like Lane Bryant and Torrid, and get your fix in plus sized sections of Saks, Bloomingdales, and Macys.
This is only a small selection.
What are some of your favorite places to shop for plus sized pieces?
