If you’re a plus size woman chances are you know all too well the struggle that exists in trying to find fashionable options despite the strides in the plus fashion industry. If you’re above a size 24 then you DEFINITELY know how infinitely smaller our options are than our smaller contemporaries.
Despite having limited options, we still have options! Today I am providing an updated list of places you can shop if you fall into that extended size range! So without further ado lets dig right into it!
(The list is done in alphabetical order)
Apples Peaches Pears Boutique is an online boutique here in the Atlanta area. I had the great pleasure of stumbling upon this store when I met the owner at The Curvy Fashionista Expo this past August. If you’re a reader here then you also know Apples Peaches Pears is no stranger to the blog since I highlighted the owner on the Curvy Spotlight section. Check out her interview here.
Christian Omeshun is an indie designer brand well known here in the Atlanta area and beyond. The owner Ashontay Hubbard has made it her business to provide full glam and ready to wear looks to the plus size community and doing it fashionably. Not only does she create ready to wear collections; she also can create custom looks too.Christian Omeshun does not disappoint.
Curve Girl is another online store located out of the country with the option to customize your clothing as well offering a full range of sizes. They range from fast fashions to more unique pieces at a really affordable price. One of the things I do always let anyone know who maybe interested in shopping; size up because they tend to run small and do not wash and dry the stretchy knit pieces as they have a tendency to shrink.
I have been shopping eShakti for at least 3 years right now. My first time stumbling upon them I was skeptical because their pricing was super reasonable for what they were offering; full customization on any piece and offering up to a size 36. I was also a bit nervous because ordering out of the country can be like playing roulette when it comes to sizing. However, after my first purchase I never looked back. I continue to shop eShakti all these years later with no disappointment.
Jessica London is definitely one of those “oldie but goodies” kind of store. Jessica London has been around since I was a kid. I always viewed it as where my mom would shop. However, recently I’ve been partnering with them and have come to thoroughly enjoy the many fashionable options they deliver in my size and not feeling like this is my mother’s store.
Lorenza James by Elle Dove is not a stranger to the blog. She’s been featured here a few times highlighting her various collections designed with the larger body in mind. Always providing a casual comfort look you slip into; Lorenza James by Elle Dove is definitely worth checking out.

That’s exactly what Lovely Wholesale is doing. Cutting out the middle man, you can get your fast and cheap fashion without paying the up charge. If you decide to try your hand at Lovely Wholesale, use my code ‘apy10’ to get 10% off your order!
Part and Parcel is a newer up and coming brand making waves already in the plus fashion industry for their innovative mission to bring clothing to plus bodies understanding we’re not one dimensional in size. Need a longer length? Calves need a little extra room? They’ve got you. Check them out it’s worth the visit!
Now if you’re not a newbie here to the blog; you know that Rebdolls doesn’t really need an introduction here does it? I’ve frequently worn Rebdolls over the last few years simply because they provide cute fast fashion at an affordable price and it actually holds up after a few wears. If you’re looking for a cute date night outfit or a night out with the girls outfit, Rebdolls is most likely to have you covered.
Richee Luxe happens to be one of my favorite indie brands here in Atlanta. I’ve have been dripped in Richee Luxe designs on more than one occasion and I am NEVER disappointed. I always manage to turn heads and have many inquiries made when I’m wearing Richee. I love that she designs such fly, cute looks for women of size that most brands would never dream of conjuring up for us on their best day.
I stumbled upon Society Plus a couple of years back. They were getting a lot of burn on social media. It’s been pretty quiet since then but I found myself checking their site lately to see what cute items they had available. I was disappointed to find a lot of stuff was sold out but ultra pleased that they’re still in business. I definitely plan to shop there again soon!
Can I tell you guys how gleeful I am to be able to add SWAK to my list? They had been closed for a little while and they just recently reopened. SWAK is definitely one of my favorite places to shop for cute maxi dresses! I am so glad they’re back in business and can’t wait to get into some of their new collections!
Tara Lynn’s Boutique is definitely no stranger to the blog as I have frequently worn her apparel and shared it here on the blog! This is a Utah based boutique and has all the girl next door vibes you can handle. I love the pretty floral maxis, cute sweaters and (my personal favorite) the rompers Tara Lynn’s has in stock. If you haven’t checked out the site before now is as good as time as any!
Sizes: 10 – 30
While my love hate relationship with Torrid still exists (and has been explained here.) I still shop with them because they make cute clothes in my size. Not only does Torrid make cute dresses, rompers, jeans and tops; they also make some really cute active wear and intimate apparel.
15. Wendy S. Collection
The Wendy S. Collection is a Florida based brand most known for their luxe vacation wear. If you have the opportunity to peruse the site you will know what I’m talking about! The brand offers flavorful, stylish, vacation wear that will make you a whole entire mood! Sometimes one of the biggest obstacles when traveling (besides airlines) is finding cute vacation attire; but the Wendy S. Collection has solved that!
I hope this round up has been informative for you if you came here looking for new places to possibly shop. It’s always nice to know that in an industry where bodies that look like mine are constantly told they are not worthy of inclusion; there are still brands who rebel against that sentiment and design for bodies like mine!
Until next time,
