Cheap Plus Size Clothing For Budget Babes

When I first crossed over from size 18 to 20 and could no longer find cheap plus size clothes hiding in straight size clothing sections, I panicked! My mom jumped in to save the day and got a Lane Bryant store credit card one day after a trip to the mall. I’m certain that she got the credit card after seeing me light up because something in a store actually fit me, probably after several watery eyed trips through stores that had nothing to offer. I’m really lucky that my mom was there to encourage me to find things I loved, even as my body grew (and to finance it!), it made a world of difference in my self love journey and being happy in the body I’m in.

That was about 10 years ago, and the plus size clothing industry has grown exponentially since the days of being stuck shopping at one or two plus size stores. The options are still minimal compared to straight sized clothing.

Affordable plus size clothing options are still a struggle to find for anyone over a size 24, in fact ANY options are hard to find in a size over a 24. But the plus size industry IS growing, and there are a lot of options that many fat babes don’t know about.

I wish I could play mom and finance everyone’s first plus size store credit card, but alas… I’m just a blogger. But I can put together one serious list of all the options you’ve got so you don’t have to wonder around a mall going from one fitting room to another while holding back tears.

If it’s inaccessible to the poor it’s neither radical nor revolutionary


Ok, look… I know we’re just talking about plus size clothing here but I frequently feel like all the strides and progress the plus size clothing industry is making are still completely and totally useless for low-income individuals. The feeling of being able to dress yourself in something that makes  you feel good is something that every person should have access to. Loving your body and expressing yourself should not be limited to people who are monetarily wealthy.

So here are some of my favorite picks for beautiful fashionistas on a budget. Cheap plus size clothes!!!! Everything here is under $50 (and many many things are under 20!).


You want cheap plus size clothes? You got tons of options at Boohoo! Affordable plus size clothing for day, night, and everything in between. They even have swimwear! While this brand only goes to size 24, they have lots of knits with plenty of stretch. Prices start around $10.

Daily Ritual

Have ya’ll seen this new line on Amazon??? Everything is under $30 and IT GOES UP TO SIZE 7X (size 40). All the pieces are basics and essentials that can be dressed up or down. This line is exclusive to Amazon Prime members, don’t worry you can get your 30 day free trial here.


Did you know they’re not just in stores anymore? Now you can shop your favorite low-cost plus size goodies from the comfort of your couch. I absolutely hate sorting through racks of clothing to find a good piece, but somehow I can spend hours scrolling through stuff online!

Old Navy

I’ll be honest, I’ve been a little bit grumpy at Old Navy. They charge more for plus size items that are the same as straight size items, and it just doesn’t feel great and it doesn’t seem like they’re changing that any time soon. However, they continue to make great looking basics at reasonable prices and I just can’t quit them!!! Almost everything is under $50 and if you catch a sale you can get things even cheaper. Sizes go up to 4x/30!


Shein is becoming everyone’s go-to shop for plus size clothing under $20. Every cute item you see on pinterest these days seems to be straight from Shein. They have trendy, cheap clothes, and seem to be adding more styles every day. When ordering on this site make sure you pay attention to their size chart. Since many of the items are manufactured overseas it’s a good idea to double check even if you think you know what size you’ll be!


A major staple store for lots of straight sized people, h&m started carrying plus sizes a few years ago and they’ve really made some great strides in their selection. My favorite thing about this store is that there is more than just casual wear, there is chic workwear and night out clothes as well. Sizes up to 3x, prices start at $10.

Ami Clubwear

This cheap plus size clothing store is definitely for a more hip party-going crowd! They have awesome two piece sets, and really cute SUPER affordable jackets, tees, and leggings. Prices are as low as $5 and they have a giant colorful selection!

Forever 21

We all know I have some feelings about Forever21. I put them aside for their wildly affordable fashions. Cause damn some of their plus size styles are too cute to pass up! Sizes up to 3x. Prices start at around $10, and if you’re a size 3x or under they’ll prob be one of your fave fast fashion stores!

Rainbow Shops

Do you remember Rainbow from when we were kiddos? I DO! They’re still killing it and making affordable fast fashions for all the plus size babes! I’ve done a couple hauls with Rainbow on my youtube channel and I always love what they’re putting out. They’re even coming out with more and more 4x sizes! Prices start around $5.99!

A few more places for babes on a budget to check out include:

Walmart | Kmart | Azazie ($35 bridesmaid dresses up to size 30!!!!)

Remember we have lists about activewear, swimwear, workwear, and so much more! If you’re looking for plus sizes over size 24 make sure you check out this post!


  • Katy April 15, 2015 at 3:29 pm

    Hey! I didn’t know about these (except Rainbow, which has shops all over Brooklyn). I do look forward to anything you find in the generous 3x range, or the 4/5x range, or that’s not junior plus-ish. I’m window shopping now like a wildwoman. Thanks, girl! <3

    • fatgirlflow April 15, 2015 at 3:36 pm

      I’m going to have a big (hopefully 20 stores) post for sizes that aren’t frequently catered to (above 3x). But of course, a lot of those larger sized stores don’t fit into the “budget friendly” area. UGH!!! But I promise I’m scouring EVERYWHERE to find AWESOME options above a size 24!!!!!! Thanks Katy <3

      • Dawn Huber November 6, 2015 at 9:56 pm

        I think your ace…:D

      • Patricia Pierce May 9, 2019 at 12:24 am

        I recently found your page . Thank you for making a safe place for us big girls ? i did find a really good website that i know you will ??? called woman within. I believe there sizes are 12-44 and they even have shoes that are designed for us bigger ladies.. I am 5’6″ and weight 3 06lbs unfortunately i carry most of my fluffyness in my tummy area due to medical condition hypothyroidism.. I also shared your page with my friend Cass. She has a very hard time finding stuff in her size. Sometimes she just makes her own shirts.. Anyway thanks for your page go have a look at that website i know your going to love it.. Prices are great too. ?

        • Lettie Mullen March 7, 2020 at 6:32 am

          Thank you for your input.this is so helpful

  • Sam April 17, 2015 at 4:39 am

    I’m somewhere between 3/4x and its so hard to find things that fit right! But honestly the only places I’ve tried on the list is Walmart Kmart and Rainbow so maybe I’ll expand my searches! Cause it really sucks having to go to Torrid and spend so much on so little:/

    • fatgirlflow April 17, 2015 at 2:28 pm

      Hi Sam! I am also right in between a 3 and 4X and I know how tricky that size can be to shop for! My next post is about larger plus size fashions and I’ve included several tips on where to get stuff for a great price! Hopefully by the end of the “100 plus size clothing stores” series you’ll have a great arsenal of places to shop that carry things that fit your taste and your budget!

      Thanks for stopping by <3

    • Kris Roth Whritenour February 14, 2018 at 5:18 pm

      Jessica London , full beauty……… I always shop the clearance first .

  • Candice April 19, 2015 at 12:10 am

    You forgot, a site similar to 599 fashion where everything is $10! They sometimes have Moddeal items on there for $10 instead of the $15 they are on Moddeals

    • fatgirlflow April 19, 2015 at 12:42 am

      Thanks Candice!!! I’ll add that to the post! <3 Thanks for stopping by!!!!

  • Kirstylouise April 21, 2015 at 2:56 pm

    I’m a plus sized girl from the UK and I recently discovered the U.S. Store torrid I’ve been getting a lot of my clothes shipped from there.

    • fatgirlflow April 21, 2015 at 5:35 pm

      Hi Kristy! Thanks for stopping by! Torrid will definitely be making an appearance on the list later in the series 🙂 They’re my absolute favorite place to buy jeans!!!!


  • Jourdi July 10, 2015 at 12:59 am

    AH! I just found your site and I just have to say, you are SO amazing! Thank you for making this list, thank you for making this site, thank you for just being YOU!!!!! <3!!!!!

    • fatgirlflow July 10, 2015 at 1:22 am

      Thank YOU for being so sweet Jourdi!!!!!

  • Stacie July 12, 2015 at 5:30 am

    Check out UK company Yours Clothing…just bought 2nd hand leggings from that company and I’m gonna save and buy every print! They go to size 34, but I’m SSBBW and these leggings fit like a dream and they are about $28, not too bad!

  • Tatiana August 5, 2015 at 10:21 pm

    Hi! um i wanted to know if you knew any stores that carry a 16-18 sizes in short because I’m around 4’11 and its really tough to find a perfect fit.

    • Brittney June 8, 2016 at 4:31 pm

      Torrid carries extra short in their jeans. Best plus size jeans on the planet!

  • Alaina Ray August 15, 2015 at 1:55 am

    Great research!!! Thank you for all the great stores, I’m always looking for other places 🙂

  • Rain August 27, 2015 at 10:39 pm

    Forever21 also has a plus line. and it is very affordable. that’s where basically all the clothes in my closet are from.

    • fatgirlflow August 28, 2015 at 5:28 pm

      I love forever 21! It’s in my “staple stores” list <3

      • Jamie January 1, 2020 at 7:20 am

        I’ve heard about Asos but never shopped there .. Have you ?

  • Meleena October 11, 2015 at 10:49 am

    Just found this blog and absolutely love it already! Thx so much for the “budget friendly” list. You just gained a loyal subscriber.

  • Hannah December 22, 2015 at 8:28 pm

    Thanks for the tips! It can be really challenging to find affordable and stylish plus-sized clothing.

  • Sandra January 12, 2016 at 2:54 pm

    Love your site. I don’t have to wonder inside stores looking for the plus size women section. It’s easier for me to order online. I will defiantly follow fatgirl Thanks for the site.

  • Chelsea Marie January 21, 2016 at 11:32 pm

    YAAAAAAAAAAAAS girl all these sites are absolutely FABULOUS

  • Shyan March 23, 2016 at 3:53 am

    You are such a life saver!!! I love your blog ?

    • Emily richeson August 21, 2019 at 12:47 am

      Me too! I love this blog. I feel like if I dress better no matter how fat I am, I will feel better and probably be less of a b*tch ha ha

  • Ashley March 26, 2016 at 6:09 pm

    Hey!!! Love this list!! I didn’t know anything about Rainbow shops until watching your videos 🙂 I’m not sure if you’re familiar with their products, but Rue 21 DOES have a plus size section & their clothes are really similar to Rainbow shops. I LOVE their clothes. In fact, most of my closet is from them & 599fashion! Check em out 🙂 PS. You inspire me & every video I watch, I learn to love myself a little more. I adore you <3

    • fatgirlflow March 27, 2016 at 1:24 am

      I’ll absolutely check them out! Thanks for the heads up Ashley, and thanks for being part of my little internet family <3

  • Katy Parrish March 31, 2016 at 4:49 am

    Have you ever tried Deb shops? They used to have stores in malls but now they are just online. They make cute plus size stuff and it’s super affordable. The quality is similar to Rainbow which is my go to store for basics.

    • fatgirlflow March 31, 2016 at 6:09 am

      I didn’t know deb was back!!! Last I knew they had shut down! I’ll definitely check ’em out!

  • Patsy Marlar April 20, 2016 at 9:01 pm

    Hi, I’m 60 and need sizes in 3X or 22-24. I’m not interested in teen looks or 20’s/clubber styles, just comfortable everyday looks for going to dinner with a friend, to church, a book reading, running some errands, etc. I love maxi length skirts and dresses. I only seldom wear jeans now. Which stores/sites would you recommend for someone in my situation. Thanks!

    • fatgirlflow April 21, 2016 at 9:55 pm

      I think you would really like!

  • Heav April 23, 2016 at 7:44 pm

    Love the blog & have u try ASOS & Simplybe. Keep up the GREAT work

    • fatgirlflow April 23, 2016 at 8:10 pm

      yes!!!! I enjoy both of them!!!! <3 Thanks for reading!

      • Victoria January 20, 2020 at 9:45 am

        Ok, if you enjoy both thing how do you make your mind when you have to choice from all three of ideas.

  • Sarah April 26, 2016 at 8:08 pm

    Ok so I have an extremely awkward body shape I have virtually no boobs but my band size is really big and so are my thighs but I can’t find a dress type that looks good I’m a size 22-24 any suggestions?

    • fatgirlflow April 27, 2016 at 10:47 am

      Have you tried “swing” dresses?!?!? I think you’d be into them!!! so the goal would be to find something that’s in the A-line style (to accommodate your thighs), but that has no seam at the waist so that your upper half isn’t oddly split in half. Something like this: – or that shape would probably work well! There are lots of dresses like that on that site if you wanna check ’em out! I am a 24/26 and I wear a 3x there but they carry 4x in some styles as well <3

  • Jennifer May 5, 2016 at 5:59 pm

    A few Canadian options that also ship to the USA:
    1. Penningtons: 1x to 6x
    2. Addition Elle: 1x to 4x
    3. SexyPlusClothing: XL to 5x

    Just adding to your list, sorry if these are repeats

    • fatgirlflow May 6, 2016 at 11:54 am

      Thanks babe! All of those stores appear on other lists, but they’re great options to have for our Canadian babes!!!! <3

  • TABATHA GRIFFITH May 8, 2016 at 4:08 pm

    Is on the list? They go up to a 30/32. They have a large selection and you can really score on there clearance and outlet items

    • fatgirlflow May 8, 2016 at 10:17 pm

      They are! They’re just on a different list 😉

  • Robin C. May 20, 2016 at 2:47 pm

    Just found your blog and love love love it! I am so sick of wearing either old navy (not bring or hip enough), forever21 (runs small and cheaply made), h&m (the sizes are sooooo different each time, thank god they now offer in store returns) torrid (too expensive) Love having more options to look cute! Thank you thank you thank you!!!

  • Miranda May 26, 2016 at 12:17 am

    Thank you SO much for compiling a list! I had never heard of a lot of these stores, but I’m excited to shop around. I can’t explain the feeling of going into my first plus size store, trying something on in the dressing room, and NOT wanting to cry. Best feeling ever. If only my poor teenage self had the options I do now. Thanks love! <3

  • Elizabeth S May 31, 2016 at 9:39 am

    Holy crap thank you. I am plus-sized AND tall (2X, 6’0) and that cancels out 90% of the plus size stores that exist unfortunately, at least for bottoms. I just bought five tops from A’GACI and am so super excited to see the quality and try them on – especially for forever 21 prices. Now if only I could find bottoms for the same prices that came in long lengths! Thanks lady!

    • fatgirlflow May 31, 2016 at 2:15 pm

      I’m so glad you found some stuff you like!!!!! I know the tall girl struggle lol <3

      • Elizabeth S June 3, 2016 at 6:51 pm

        Such a bummer! The tops are freaking adorable, but at least 2 sizes too small. Sizing is way off, or my thinking is? Either way – I’m making the effort to find a store in person so I can figure out what size I am. I’m normally a 2X in most everything, if not a 1X, but I’m thinking I might even need a 4X for this brand. Insane!

        • fatgirlflow June 4, 2016 at 9:42 pm

          Which store??? Sizing is all over the place especially for fast fashion places (which usually are the affordable ones)

      • Melissa Reynolds April 26, 2019 at 3:37 pm

        I cant find my size very hard

  • Michelle June 15, 2016 at 2:41 pm

    Thanks for this. I love it! It’s really hard to find something for those of us who are in the 26/28 size range. Also, I found this site called, but it’s junior plus. Do you know anything about the difference between plus and junior plus sizes?

    • fatgirlflow June 16, 2016 at 10:00 am

      I have never heard of them! I’ll definitely check them out!

  • Valerie June 21, 2016 at 3:15 pm

    What about the 5x-6x women like me…I àm looking for something low priced too..

    • fatgirlflow June 22, 2016 at 11:31 am

      I hear you, Valerie. I hate that I don’t have more to offer or tell you about that is in 5/6x. I promise that I will continue to keep my eye on new retailers so I can have the most up to date info as possible.

      • Diane September 19, 2019 at 11:53 am

        I have purchased some things 6X and up from Sanctuarie. Some rather eclectic styles, and the quality is not always the best, but I think that is reflected in their prices. Sizes tend to run a little large.

        • fatgirlflow September 20, 2019 at 9:53 am

          Oh! I’ll have to check them out!

  • Kitty Canuck June 22, 2016 at 1:16 pm

    Hey, I hope this is ok. We’ve started a new online plus size store in Canada. Our prices range, but we strive to keep it affordable for most women. We specialize in mod-vintage, rockabilly, and alternative pinup styles. Our website is

    Thanks! Kitty

  • Anja June 29, 2016 at 6:56 am

    Bonprix; a European on-line store. Sizes up to 28 (America).

  • PeanutQueen July 18, 2016 at 8:12 pm

    From wich store is this MOON CHILD shirt

    • fatgirlflow July 18, 2016 at 9:52 pm


      • Kristy October 9, 2016 at 11:23 pm

        I love that moon child shirt since my astrological sign is cancer and we’re moon babies. I like your site. I’m currently a 18 but I have hips breasts and a booty that’s more like a 20. All clothing lines in my opinion and by doing some researching either up size or downsize depending on their clientele. Say you pick up a 20 Jean try them on and they are too big so you go down to an 18 and they are loose so you feel great right?…next store the 22 doesn’t even fit…makes ya feel like crap. Just remember that when shopping…pick what fits well and not look too hard at the size.

        • Kristy October 9, 2016 at 11:25 pm

          At 1st i have to admit I was turned off by your blog title but digging thru it…I love it.

  • Kristina Stull July 23, 2016 at 10:23 am

    I just found your site! Yay! Finally someone who understands me. I’ve been to all the stores in my little town and left more than one in silent tears.
    I’m having trouble finding cute black work pants for a server. I need size 26-28. I’m curvy with large hips and thighs, I need something super stretchy and preferably a boot cut. Can you help me?

    Thank you so much.


    • Kristy October 9, 2016 at 11:27 pm

      Have you tried Zulilly online?

  • Itty Bitty July 30, 2016 at 2:10 am

    Hello my name is Danielle and i am a big woman size 2-3x i have not been able to find clothes that look right on me at all . i am 4 ’11 296 lbs and i dress like a bum. I love fashion but i have never shopped for myself ever. so i do not know how to shop or what to look for. I am a single mother looking to find herself. i have no one to talk to because the people around are too ignorant and abrasive to talk to . I love who i am but i know i have a ways before i lose the weight i need to for my health. but i would like to walk down the street and have someone say that i am beautiful or be able to take a picture. I dont know what to do. Do you have any suggestions.

    • fatgirlflow August 1, 2016 at 11:28 am

      Hi babe! I suggest starting a pinterest board and searching “plus size fashion” and finding some outfits you love, then re-creating them on yourself. They will not look exactly the same as they do on other people and that is FANTASTIC! Because you are YOU and once you try a few outfits you think you like you’ll start to know your style a little better and what you want to put in your closet <3

      • Kristy October 9, 2016 at 11:42 pm

        Have you tried Zulilly online? You have to watch the size guide and they don’t do returns only with a few exceptions BUT if you follow that guide they come to you in the size you needed. I think you need to work on your confidence cuz like the saying goes you gotta love yourself 1st. Get some great shape wear that isn’t restrictive…and some black leggings with boots or booties and a cute tunic (not your grandmas “tunic” lol) . Do your hair and makeup. Take some selfies and compare those made up you photos to the “bum” you photos.

  • Kristy July 30, 2016 at 2:52 am

    Roamans , woman within , one stop shop are all online places to go. Avenue is another and they have stores around also.

  • Sharon July 30, 2016 at 10:42 pm

    I love to look good, Buti have failed in everyway. I’m 56 yrs old and on a fixed income, I look at my self as I have been sick and put so a lot of weight, have trouble finding anything wear that looks nice. Then when I first d something it’s way to expensive because they charge higher prices for big women clothes, I wear an 18- 20 in pants and I love the tops to hide my stomach so I buy them big. I would love to be able to find a store for everything I need instead of walking in and getting looked at and starred at like some kind of freak in a side show. So now I try shopping on line.

  • Alanna August 2, 2016 at 3:56 pm

    I remember lane Bryant before it changed over to a younger look for clothes. My mom had a hard time seeing clothes in a style that looked like skinny clothes. All of her life she had been told by the industry that she had to dress differently just because of her size. Also the style of clothing was always 5-10 years behind the skinny styles. This was also the time we found a junior store called Deb. They had clothes for me, and I was so happy to have “normal” looking clothes.
    I’m actually very grateful to you for showing me positive and honest ways clothes fit on our bodies. (Your body is actually more like my mom’s, but when you share something beautiful I still consider it) thank you!

  • Debie August 5, 2016 at 5:02 pm

    I’ve been looking for hours & hours to buy myself an outfit & I’m in tears. I must be the biggest outcast on Earth! I know I’ve seen women bigger than me & they’re not naked! Where do they go? I have always been large. Wore a 2x most of my life. Then I had a back injury & gained… 3-4x, then I quit smoking gained I don’t know how much. My scale goes to 500, but reads ERROR when I get on it! I have one shirt that fits me & it’s wearing out. I don’t even know what size I am, but 5x is too small, I’ve bought a ton because apparently that’s the biggest human on Earth! I have a 54″ bust & a 64″ waist.

  • Jaz August 20, 2016 at 11:49 pm

    Hey, thanks for making this list!! I’m a plus size teen with biiiig hips but a small waist so finding pants that actually fit me is so hard, so I kind of only have two school pants and two jeans haha. It’s especially hard since I live in a small town on a very low income, so it’s like I either pay 100$+ for jeans at a plus size store, or just go to walmart and find whatever fits me haha. I’m hoping with the new school year I can get some fab new pieces and really show my style and wear the things I want to wear without my size getting in the way. Have you ever tried Rose Wholesale? I saw some nice cheap pants on there but not sure how good their service is. Also I just want to say you’re a major inspiration, and you’re very beautiful! <3 Sorry for the long message but I hope you have a great day and keep on rockin'!

    • Kristy October 9, 2016 at 11:32 pm

      I feel for you. My stepdaughter is 16 and has a larger waist than bust and large thighs. It’s hard to watch her buy jeans. Have you tried Walmart. They make cute “jeggings” you can pair with tucked in boots and tops from trust me…you’ll find things you’ll love and have a wonderful freeing sense of confidence for the school year.

  • Valii August 21, 2016 at 1:49 pm

    Thank you sooo. I’m thinking of starting a plus size store and you’ve given me the plug for clothing. Next up, I need shoes. Slippers.

  • Lynne September 2, 2016 at 2:26 am

    Thank you SO much for putting together this information. I’m a plus sized mother that never really gave up my high school clothing… this has re-inspired me to get back in with CUTE clothing! SO much to choose from, and the pricing is GREAT. I know you’ve heard it before, but you’re a GODSEND. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  • Tara September 5, 2016 at 8:59 pm

    I went on rainbow and checked the measurements. They seem awfully small but I know I’ve bought from them before. Makes me a little Leary. I’m usually between a 1x and a 2x.
    Measure ch-49
    Measure w-45
    Measure -53
    Ps I’m in Canada shipping sucks. And if it doesn’t I usually get nailed for duty so I look for low prices and great sales.

  • Sophia September 14, 2016 at 6:44 pm also is a good site for affordable plus size clothing

  • Lanier Green September 28, 2016 at 5:28 pm

    I am top heavy 1x-4x depending on style im small bottom size 12 any site suggestions

  • Jennifer Belanger September 28, 2016 at 6:55 pm

    I just discovered your page here today so I don’t know if you have listed it in another post but Cato is another great place to get plus size clothes, my mother and I love that place.. That’s where we would get all our clothes but I’m in Maine now and the stores don’t come up this far yet, thankfully their selling on their website finally. They go up to I think a 30 and have really good prices.

    I have a hard time finding black dress jeans. I need 26W wide legs. I was buying them at wemans within. They fit great not tight not to baggy. Just the way I like them fitting. Well saddly I tried to order them they no longer carry them. This is what happens to me every time I find a pair I find good fit. I need a new pair by October 8th yes this weekend I’m never gonna make it.

    Just came across your site – lots of great info! Torrid is pretty much my favorite plus size store and I’ve gotten some great deals by waiting until they have stuff go on 50% off clearance. Got a very cute grey moto jacket for about $35 last week just before the Black Friday sales! Once you rack up enough purchases to qualify for unlimited free shipping, buying online is a great option as well.

    I need help i am a bigger lady and i fit 5xl but most of my stuff is super stretchy. I recently bought a dress off of the website and it got here and is not what we thought it would fit like it was completely see through and they said it was a v neck and what it really was was a complete plunge in the front and back. They will not give me my money back as it was on clearance. All i am looking for is a nice dress that would be appropriate for a maid of honor dress that is black and goes to the floor. This makes me sad that there are woman out there in the same boat as i am when trying to find nice dresser clothing for special occasions.

    Hi! GREAT post!!! Could you help me a tiny bit? I don’t know if I’m a 3X or 4X. I usually wear a 26 or 28, and I do not like tight clothes. What do you think?

    Thank you for the superb advice. I’d not known about most of these stores!

    Wow, I hadn’t heard of a lot of these – thank you so much for sharing! I live somewhere with very little in-person plus size retailers other than Walmart, Old Navy, and Target so I am always excited to hear about new-to-me online stores.

    I just read that HuffPo article you contributed to, and I wanted to thank you for that, as well. As a lifelong fat girl it has been so, so important to me to see and hear the experiences of women like me. I adored your gorgeous photo (and I also love – which I see in this post as well – hearing about your mother’s supportiveness). Thank you <3

      Thank you for reading and thank you for the kind words. That article has been a whirlwind of mostly totally positive feelings <3

    Bonprix – and a few of the fashion forward but not junior – don’t seem to ship to the US. I have sometimes used pink clove and yours clothing, though. In AUS Best for Less is a good budget option for pieces. Thred up is online consignment and sometimes has plus options (obviously hit or miss.) Also, Rue21 can have some cute stuff up to 3x. Remember that anything that is aimed for juniors will likely have a closer fit at best, and often is shaped differently, so you may need a slightly different size than at other stores. Check the charts!

    Great … I found some new spots to find some looks and agree about the old navy fall off.

  • Gail February 7, 2020 at 9:32 pm

    I looked at Daily Rituals on Amazon. The largest size I saw was 2x

    • fatgirlflow February 10, 2020 at 11:50 am

      You still have to look for items marked “plus size”!

  • Cate February 9, 2020 at 9:53 am
