Oh geez, I'm such a fashion victim clothes horse, so this is the thread for me. Shopping?? No problem! I do a lot of it at Old Navy, too, particularly their plus sizes on the website (I'm glad they didn't get rid of them entirely!). I often shop JCPenney, as well. Some of their newer fashion lines in plus sizes have cute tops, like a.n.a. ('a new approach') with kind of a retro feel (which works for me, being a thirtiesgirl and all). For pants, I tend to stick to their career pants and twills with subtle striping, plaids or interesting takes on solid standards, like weird shades of olive-grey, grey-khaki, navy, tan, etc. I try to think 'Katherine Hepburn in African Queen' when I'm shopping for more casual pants. And like AP, I loves me some accessories: a funky bag, scarf, sunglasses, and SHOES... oh. my. god. - SHOES! Can we just say that a girl can never have too many shoes? At least this one can't. I'm literally running out of room in my apartment. I'm going to need a shoe intervention soon.

Thanks for the link to the Ballyhoo site, crinoline. I love vintage, but rarely find items in my size. I love that this site includes bust and waist sizes on the garments. I'll keep checking to see when they get new items. More shopping for me. Wheee!

*bump* for Mamsack again.

I forgot to add, Torrid is slashing prices through today on clearance items. 50% off already cheap prices.

prophecy_grrl - i just bought a bunch of stuff from old navy's plus size store online. i also got a tankini from just my size. it's black and the fabric is crinkle. it's so nice i love it. the soft cup bra inside is very supportive i was so surprised. i bought it in black in case i needed to wear my black bra with it in the pool for more support. i'm glad i don't have to do that. i was worried i was going to have to go to the beach with friends and be the only girl without a bathing suit. that would have sucked. not me!! i'll be looking quite cute like everone else.

Old Navy's plus size selections (only online now) are nice too - the bathing suits are all pretty basic, but they're on sale now so you can get some good deals. They have a lot of other cute summer stuff, too.

thanks, kitten - I always forget about Torrid. I really like the length of the shorts on the tankinis.

If anyone else is looking for a new bathing suit, I just got a cute one at Torrid. It is a two piece that is long enough to cover my stomach (I didn't raise my arms when I tried it on) and provides some bust support.

hey ladies, i am looking for a decent bra that doesn't dig in or ride up. i wear a 38C and i'm pretty sure it's the right size, but maybe i should go up to a 40C? i tried 38D and my poor boobs were lost in the cups. i must have a longer length from my shoulders to my chest than most women do, or something, cuz i always have either the straps gouging my shoulders or the band works it's way up and drives me crazy. and let's not even talk about the underwires digging holes in my flesh... help!

*pokes head in and waves*
Hi ya'll! I'm not actually plus size myself, but my best friend and most of the women in my family are, so I'm very familiar with the frustrations of shopping. I can't count how many times we've gone from store to store in a futile search for cute clothes. Here are some online resources where we've found cute, contemporary stuff:
Cherished - cute and contemporary
Kiyonna - a little bit "career dress" oriented, like Layne Bryant, but cuter (IMO)
Fashion Overdose - cute casual "alternative/indie" style clothes
Monif C. - pricey, but gorgeous dresses
And, if you're into vintage fashion like I am, Ballyhoo is an excellent resource

happy shopping, ladies! And if any of you have any good petite (aka short) resources, send 'em back at me!

I like funkier looking clothes also.... I find cute tops at Macy's... they sell Plus size Junior clothes...brands like Eyeshadow and a couple of other one's that I can't remember right now. INC has cute plus sizes also.

I enjoyed Alight... I may have to order some of those cute tops.

I heart shopping wink.gif

See, now, I'm a little more edgy than most of those places. I like to do the things big girls aren't supposed to. You should really check out Alight, LMP. I particularly like the Blue Plate brand.

It's weird. I keep getting my mom's catalogues for ugly big girl clothes. Roamann's & the Lane Bryant for women that dress ugly. I suppose most of their clientele is over fifty or blind.

I don't like their trousers, either. There is a weird crotch thing going on. I think for most big bottom/skinny waist girls the pants are the hardest. I really liked the ONplus Flirts, but the Diva seems more popular. I keep saying I'm gonna try the customs from Target (If they still do that.).

Tops-wise I like B&Lu & Alight.

Lane Bryant has really nice tops, but the bottoms have wierd crotches... I know that sounds strange, but they are too long or something strange.

Since all my clothes are in storage, I've been hitting the Old Navy.com, too. I've found a few really cute things there. A couple striped things & some really colorful shirts. I tend to let my accessories speak for me. Today it is a serious pair of Fluevog boots, a geometric print scarf, some really rectangular two-tone specs, & some funky vintage jewlry.

I wear a 18 or 20 in Jeans. The only jeans that really fit me well, are from Old Navy.com
They have the cutest women's clothes and shipping is only 5 dollars.

I'm 5'8" and the average length is perfect on me

Wow, I sound like a commercial wink.gif

Clothes shopping gets to me too. There's a guy in my life who is always telling me that I have the perfect body. I love him but he is skinny and he doesn't know what it's like to try shopping in normal stores and not be able to fit in any of the clothes! And here in Canada we don't even have Torrid! Also I think it's stupid that Torrid carries size 12, that's not even plus size!

I do need to lose weight and get back down to my healthy size but in the meantime would it kill us to have some more stores that cater to plus size women?
