Cute Plus Size Clothing for Women

Plus-Size Clothing (continued from page two)

Clothing Up to Size 6x:

I want you to remember that the designation "up to size 6x" means that a site will also have sizes like 1x, 2x, and 3x.  So, unless you need a very large size, go ahead and explore most of these (and other) plus-size websites.

15. SydneysCloset.com: This best websites for plus size older women over 40 50 60site has a good assortment of dresses for formal cruise nights and weddings and things like that.

16. Eshakti.com: Actually, I like this peplum dress better in Swedish Blue or black, but you might look good in gray...it depends on your coloring.  Most Eshakti designs are for pear shapes.

17. AbiAndLois.com: I think this site is out of business. Let me know if I'm wrong. when I have some extra time, I'll try to find another website.

18. Balibonanzar by Balibazaar at Etsy:  Good grief I hope I spelled that right.  Balibazaar has cute, soft, drapey tops, dresses, and pants. Their usual sizes seem to go up to 4x, but you can special order up to size 6x.

19. SwakDesigns.com: This site has lots of basics for everyday and goodies for going out. Their prices are really reasonable, but if you can find something on sale, hey... even better. I like the Enchanted Top. It can be worn with jeans for day or tarted up with statement rhinestone earrings for cruise formal night or for clubbing if you're young enough to still do that. I may have to get this.

Plus Sizes Up to Size 8x:best websites for cute plus size fashion for women

20. MakingItBig.com: I love the colors in this Amsterdam Top, and it would look groovy over some jeans or leggings.  Of course, I love leggings because my skinny legs make me look thin(ish).

21. Sanctuarie.net:  I don’t have one of these Slinky Wrap Dress/Jacket thingies, but I like the way they look.  You have the choice of getting the Slinky with a tie (for wrapping it like a dress) or without a tie (for wearing it like a duster).  I’m not sure if I would wear it open if it had a string.  I wonder if you could wear it open (like in the photo) and belt it (maybe with an obi) and tuck the tie into the belt to hide the tie.  That would make the Slinky very versatile and useful for travel.

Cute Clothing Up to Size 10x:

22. BigOnBatik.comMost, but not all, of the items at Big on Batik are perfect as cruise or vacation wear.

Outfits Up to Size 12x:

23. DesignerCurves.com:  This site has a fairly large selection of cool stuff in extended sizes.  And, you can make a simple top like this (which comes in twelve colors) into something elegant by ordering it with beading for an extra $15.  Sexy mama!  Cute dresses, too.

I love discovering new sites online.  If I've missed any of your favorites, scroll to the bottom of the page and leave a comment about the site you like.

    Thank you I'm 300 lbs (thyroid problem) and could never find decent plus clothing anywhere until now.

  2. Christina Gregoire


    I feel you. My weight gain is from a thyroid problem, too. Some people think, "Oh yeah, right. That 'thyroid' thing is just an excuse." Well, I lost 30 pounds one month and gained 50-60 the next month...without changing anything like diet or exercise. I don't care what those clueless people think.

    Thank God for the internet. Without it, I would be stuck wearing my bathrobe everywhere. I'm glad you like the article.

      A weight gain of that much in one month is not what you are eating. Sounds like it could be Cushings .I was told I had hypothyroidism and I do, but I also have Cushings and alot of the symptoms are the same as thyroid. Cushings causes a lot of damage to the body and is hard to diagnose. Check it out, better to be safe than sorry. Thanks for the great ideas.

        Karina Boomerina,

        You are right. I had a THYROID problem, which (probably) was a result of a neck surgery. I lost 30 pounds one month from hyperthyroidism and I gained 30 pounds in a month from hypothyroidism after having my thyroid ablated. I thought I explained that, but I'll put it in the article if I left it out. (I've written several articles that mention my thyroid issues and related weight gain, so I might have forgotten to include it in this one. I'll double check.)

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I actually found things that not only fit but things I actually like!!

    perfect, love this plus size dress, these are just for me!

    • Tina


      I was skinny for most of my life, but nothing stays the same forever.

      In the beginning, it was terribly hard for me to adapt to my new clothing size (the change was caused by meds and it was an extreme, dramatic, overnight weight gain of almost 80 pounds), but I have had great success with online stores. (I still like trendy stuff and I'm always trying new clothing combinations.)

      What the heck would we do without the internet? I'm so glad you found a dress you like! I hope this list was helpful and will be helpful in the future.

      I'm tooting my own horn a bit, but I spent ages putting this list together and I use it myself whenever I'm looking for something fun in my size... so you might want to bookmark it. And, if you have any other sites... especially, unusual ones... add them in the comment section.

        ps Anyone who wants to add to this list can leave a comment, and I'll either write another article "Trendy Plus Size Sites Part Deux," or I'll add your sites at the bottom of this article. (Spammers will be ignored.)

    I am a 308 lb 5' 5" Apple shape , pretty much big all over but with narrowish shoulders. I have hippieish bohemian taste in clothes so your tips and postings are so right on, plus you do great research! Have you written any books? On fashion especially?

    • Tina


      I have not written any books, but I should write one. After all these years, I know what women are looking for.

    Are you in CANADA?

  9. Connie

    Do you deliver to Ontario or have a store nearby Goderich?

    • Tina-Boomerina


      Oh, didn't understand the question. I am a blogger. I don't own a store. I just tell women about stores and online sites and clothing styles that I think they would like

      Many of the stores that deliver to the US also deliver to Canada. Is there a specific store or style of clothing that you want me to check into? I'm happy to help whenever I can.

    Thank you for sharing the links of where to find the bigger gals clothes! Being DeafBlind, going through debilitating FM at times and being a Mom of fraternal twin toddlers, I've no time for shopping. As parents know, sacrifices are made with multiples. However, it's nice to treat ourselves to a new piece of clothing. Thanks!

  11. Tina-Boomerina


    Thank you so much for your comment. I'm so amazed that you can do twins... wow. Normally, I answer everyone by email but I'm way too far behind in my work to do that right now. I love hearing your views. Thanks for commenting. You sound amazing.

    Has anyone tried eShakti.com? I've seen it advertised and look at the site -- some cute clothes and you can modify certain dresses to your preferences. I think it looks interesting and clothing costs are not bad.

  13. Marie

    SimplyBe and ModCloth do not use plus sized models. Navabi and NewLook kind of do, but not really. The only one that uses plus sized models, so that you can get a reality check on what you are wearing is BigGirlsUnited. I am tired of ordering clothes online that give me no idea what is going to look like on just to have to turn around and send it back. I am already unhappy with the way I look, returning clothing does not help.

    • Tina-Boomerina


      I totally agree with you. It's so hard to imagine what clothes will look like on a real person.

      Don't be unhappy with the way you look. Be unhappy with the awful selection we have to work with. It's not you. It's the cut.

      I hope all plus-size clothing companies read this. Actually, women should email-bomb clothing companies with their complaints about the models they use. I would like to see clothing shown on women who are a realistic size. I will never stop buying online because it gives me a better selection, but it is terribly hard to visualize an outfit when companies consider a size 12 model to be a plus size model.


      • Tina-Boomerina


        Actually, what I would like to see is an outfit shown on different models of different sizes on a website page.

        For example: If a dress comes in sizes 12 - 20, the site should show several models. They should photograph the dress on a gal who's size 12, next to a model who's size 16, next to a model who's size 20. Use the same idea for small sizes.

        Websites can have the main photo be the one they would normally use to show off the dress. Then at the bottom of the page, there can be representations of various sizes. If the dress looks like crap on the size 20, the designer should put more work into designing a better garment.

    I would like to receive any 5x or bigger women's catalogs you have my name and address is: xxxxx.

  15. Tracey B. Nelson

    Aw, this was an incredibly nice post. Spending some time and actual effort to create a great article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and don’t seem to get nearly anything done.

  16. Carol Green

    Eloquii is my go to for everything! If you see something you like just wait for the sales usually 40% or more!
