Cato has plus-size clothes. You might try the thrift stores for clothes. That way when you grow out of them it won't cost an arm and a leg.

I like Catherine's....they don't have alot of flowery prints (who wants to look like a walking garden?) and Torrid.....looking at their sizes are less humiliating as they don't put the traditional XXXL/3X etc.....

In my opinion, Woman Within seems to have the best selection.

H2O has suits that last the longest but style is not their strong point.

I have to be diligent about caring for myself. 100 DAYS OF WEIGHT LOSS is a great way for me to keep focused. Day 1 is July 1, 2017. Build habits to produce success. Most of these habits I have at least tried before but did not sustain. First habit: delay eating by using a timer.

Since swim suit season is all year here for the most part, I have found two places.
Swimsuits for all and JC Penney has the best selection of suits. When I weighed 174 my highest weight, I was able to find some flattering tankinis in both places.
Venus has some stylish clothes for plus size, too.

I definitely recommend H&M as they have the best clothes for plus size women as I bought clothes from there for my mother & she is perfectly satisfied with the brand I used to buy H&M from the discount coupons through reecoupons because of the online coupons I got these clothes in a very cost effective way.

Went through all your comments and will like to thanks for sharing all your views. I am a plus size girl, but I am not really worried about the brand of the cloths. I love wearing a bikini, but I stick to solid color as it gives me a bit slim look. I almost shop online for my bikini and this summer my colour is blue bikini and I used dollboxx online store for shopping. They have a wide variety of bikini and all bikini color. They have bikini for all size, here I am sharing the link for dollboxx blue bikini www.dollboxx.com.au/collections/blue-bikini.Sticking to one brand bound us and we shop for what we see and don't bother about exploring. So it's time to step out of comfort and have access to all brands.

I pick up most of my workout pants from Walmart because a lot of them are made with a drawstring. I carry my weight in my hips and rear end so the drawstrings help my pants stay on when I'm doing high impact exercise.

You should look up local directories, they have many companies bundled, making it quite easy to find a business listed. I can give you a newer one www.acompio.us which already hold some 600 thousand companies in close to 1500 branches.

I find directories quite practical, most have search function making it even easier.

Christopher & Banks/ CJ Banks have well made, age appropriate, reasonably priced plus and misses sizes. They carry the same styles in both size ranges, a bonus if you are smaller on top. Online site plus physical stores in the US.

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!

Jeans that fit right have always been the hardest to find. I get the Gloria Vanderbilt Amanda jeans from Kohls. For shorts I get the Danskin Now brand from Walmart.

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!

I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me!
