Maurice's has a line of business-type clothes that is available in misses & plus. I've noticed in that store that most of the clothing items are available in both size ranges.

I am in mourning for the wonderful clothes you could buy in the 80s ... dress shirts, career clothes (at Lane Bryant, of all places). Everything these days seems to be Boho. For those of us still in work environments where dressing better is important, what suggestions would you offer? (Keeping in mind that I can't afford Nordstrom's :) )

Walmart. Way better than Target. Great bras with great support. Great fitness clothes heal. Invest in good running shoes though as heel spurs are a real problem.

Belks is getting better, JCPenney Ana brand is good and Target gets the worst grade for me when it comes to plus size options. The clothing section is mainly racks of clothing for juniors or smaller women and you get to the back with maybe 3 racks of plus size options. Lane Bryant is my go to choice for supportive bras, but the underwear don't hold up very well. The clothes are too expensive for the quality so I usually just watch for sales and update my wardrobe with a top/pair of pants here and there. Versonna has cute tops I can find in larger styles but its hit or miss. I still like to try on clothes before purchasing so I haven't jumped into buying online with both feet yet. Good luck and what a great idea to pass this info around!

One day at a time!

For those interested in "trendier" pieces, both Forever 21 and H&M have plus sizes available. Depending on how big your local stores are, they might even carry them in house. Otherwise, both have larger online sections. The quality is not really there, but the prices are CHEAP!

I love Jjill.com. J.jill has physical stores but those don't carry the plus sizes. They are pricey, but there is always a nice selection of sale/outlet styles on their website. As far as physical stores, I do well at my local Macy's. Addition Elle (Canada) is online and has some great exercise clothes. Good luck, all!

I have really enjoyed a website called simplybe.com. Tthey are in the uk and you need to watch for specials but the clothes are great quality and really cute. I have a thing for "Skater" Dresses and they have the largest selection of anyone by far. They aren't really cheap thus the need to look out for coupon codes but well worth it for style and quality!

For workout clothes, WalMart is getting better but you have to go on-line to find the plus sizes and get the deals. Free shipping with $50 purchase, I love their yoga pants, they fit great, not too tight and a good price. $50 goes a long way!!

I work in a high school as well and have to watch what I wear....especially at my age! lol Dress Barn has always been a favorite of mine. I have sweaters from them that I bought about 15 years ago that are still in style and I have not worn them out yet! Best bang for the buck. I agree that Lane Bryant is a little too trendy for me. I have found some decent work out clothes at Cato. I cannot find a thing at Target or Kohls. We have a store named 'Steinmart' here in NC and they carry some nice plus sizes. Also Belk is a good place to find some nice clothes. I, for one, am working hard for the day, when an XL fits! Keep on working towards your goals, ladies!

Dress Barn carries both misses and plus sizes. In fact, I think they started with just misses then added plus sizes.

Swimsuitsforall is a great place to get bathing suits in all sizes---and for us well endowed ladies, they really have good support and large enough cup sizes---I do water aerobics and their aquabelle suits hold up nicely in chlorine---I got my 2 from the clearance section and only paid 52 dollars---can't beat that for really good suits.

I had good luck with shopping online at specialty shops like iGigi -- www.igigi.com/ -- and Kiyonna www.kiyonna.com/.

I was pleased with most of what I purchased from both of these places both at my highest weight and as I lost weight. (A few Kiyonna wrap dresses got me through most of my biggest losses with style...)

I agree that Macy's and Nordstrom's generally have a good selection, as does Lord & Taylor. I loved that Athleta has up to size 2X, though they are a little spendy if you're planning on losing substantial weight (and thus changing sizes in the near future). I got a few pieces from them, but mostly went to Target or JCPenney for my plus-size workout gear. I did love Athleta's casual dresses, though (still do)!

You're right! Thrift stores are great but I never seem to find what I want there!
Another great idea are the churches who have "clothes closets" where you can get clothing and return it when you move to the next size.

Wow. This thread is a blast from the past. I've decided to stick with thrift store clothes until I hit certain milestones. If the weight comes off like I want it to, I'll be switching sizes every couple of months. No need to get fancy with the clothes in my case. I just need something that'll keep me from being naked and is comfy. LOL

Although... I will miss Lane Bryant and Torrid.

Hello All. I am still in a state of mind that i refuse to believe i am plus size, mostly since i am petite first. for that reason, i detest shopping for clothes. so, i don't know any good brands.

I'm new to the board, but not new to plus size clothing. Sad to say that two of my favorite brands has either gone out of business or is going out of business:

Silhouettes and Cold Water Creek emoticon

Cold Water is wonderful for its quality. For those of you who are looking for good bargains in quality clothing, I urge you to get on their site and buy your little hearts out. This was a wonderful brand and I'm so sorry to see it go. Everything is 40% or more right now. I'm sorry but I can't write this without feeling sad all over again. (In my not at all humble opinion, it was the ugly styles that are popular today that killed off this brand (along with the Great Recession.)

Silhouettes went out of business with narry a whimper.

I am older than many of you, I think, but I am finding one of the few brands left with decent quality at fairly good prices (pricier than Kohl's and Penney's but better, I think) is Ulla Popkin: www.ullapopken.com/

And don't forget Nordstrom's. I have clothes that are still in style, breautiful, and just as beloved today as they were when I bought them in the way back time machine. emoticon

You can't go wrong when you get things at Nordstrom's. I agree that Junonia is good, too, especially when you want good clothes for exercising, swimming, traveling.

Sorry to those who've said it, but why would a plus sized woman ever lower herself to shopping at a place called "Dress Barn"? How degrading can you get, really! They are more or less calling us all cows.

I love Layne Braynt and Torrid, but they're too pricey, especially now that I moved to Aus where shipping from the states costs more than the actual item.

Never give up; never stop trying.

I order a lot of my clothes on the internet site call OneStopPlus shopping which includes 7 different catalog companies like Roamans, Woman Within, Jessica's, Silhouette, etc. The clothes tend to fit right and as I need a 30" top, I can find some there when the stores don't carry the longer tops.

Appleseeds.com has very good quality, lady-like clothing, with most styles available in plus sizes. If you need clothing for work, this is definitely worth a try. They often have very good sales,OR free shipping offers. When they both coincide (which is rare, but does happen!), it is possible to get excellent buys.

For nicey-nice dresses I like HolyClothing. Be sure to measure yourself and check measuents of each dress style though.

I like to buy my clothes at Penningtons and Sears. Target just opened here in Canada last fall and I haven't been to one yet that has a plus size section. I was very disappointed.

Thanks for the information. I am going to check out their brand. I am between sizes and often find a hard time getting things that fit properly.

For active-wear, I shop Kohl's online and buy their Tek Gear brand - love it! The capris wear extremely well and are flattering; however, they do run about a size too big. The t-shirts are cool and comfy, and they run true to size. The colors coordinate well. I have four pairs of capris, a couple pairs of shorts, and several tops to mix and match. I have gotten many compliments while wearing them at the gym. They go on sale often, and when you pair the sale price with a 20% or 30% off coupon, it's a deal!

And, BTW, I bought a pair of Tek Gear flip-flops that have a great arch support, which is a must for me. Super comfortable!

Hmmm, some of you must have stores that carry more than my area does---I don't find clothes at kohl's, Target, etc in my size in styles I like---very few choices here. And Lane Bryant stinks unless you are a teen---all their things are not geared to all ages. I really hate trying to find tops that do not show my breasts---I work in a high school and it is just not appropriate to wear revealing clothing---and honestly, I don't like to see it on people that are working either. For nice professional clothes and good quality, I love Catherine's---wish there was a store closer to me but have also ordered online thru them.

I buy clothes depend on style and mood. I almost didn't insist what brand.

On the pricey side but I love http://www.junonia.com. They have terrific quality so they last forever. They also have a wide variety of active clothes you don't see for plus size as usual like ski suits, scooba, tennis and others.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Gwynnieebee.com-because of this website I rarely have to buy new clothes for work. When I do shop I love: Cato, Ashley Stewart, Ross, Old Navy, Target (for workout clothes), Torrid (a bit pricey to me), Woman Within (for skirts), Forever 21 (has an awesome cute plus size line with very nice prices). For real though-check out gwynieebee.com....

I will never give up!

Hi everybody,
I'm new to this forum and I'm actually new to the USA, too - I'm a Spanish expat working in Seattle. I wonder where to shop plus size fashion over here. In Spain I used to shop online because there are no special plus size fashion shops.
Currently I've bought clothes at:

www.maxana.com (the fashion looks quite old-fashioned but their trousers and jackets fit like no others - they are designed especially for chubbies, plus what I appreciate the most - they don't have any problems to tailor the item for my very short legs).

www.igigi.com (I love their dresses but sometimes have problems with fitting in the bust area)

Can't wait for your replies - I need to ruin my credit card a bit :)

I read your comment and noticed that we have several of the exact same issues...I was 115 pounds in high school and my calves were ALWAYS large and I hate it when you get a pair of jeans that slide over the hips just to have a 10 inch gap at the waist...YUCK!

I have done okay looking for boots that have the stretchy material to fit over my calves and recently have found 2 pairs one was from Avon and one was through Ruff Hewn

As far as Jeans are concerned-The Venezia Brand at Lane Bryant, JMS (just my size), Fashion Bug and Gloria Vanderbilt have worked for me...there are several styles for each brand but for the most part they fit the best.
