There has been a ton of questions regarding where to find inexpensive and cute plus size clothing,so I thought it would be a good time to post a list of stores.

Re: sewing patterns: I've never made anything with a Burdastyle pattern, but I think a lot of them look nice. They only have a small number of plus-sized patterns online, but they do seem to be actually plus-size, i.e. the measurements for their sizing are not much smaller than commercial sizing, and go up to US 28 in some cases.
Hi there! I have a question for you and your lovely followers. I don't know if anyone else has this problem, but since I am plus size (size 18), all the jeans I find are usually high waisted. And this causes me to get a camel toe, and it is really embarrassing. I know it's not because my pants are too tight, they fit my waist and legs perfectly. I don't know if it's because I pull them up too high or what. I can usually hide it with my shirt or whatever, but I really want it to go away. Does anyone know how I can prevent this? If anyone could help, I would love you forever. Please and thank you. :)
I know that lane bryant has some differently shaped jeans for differently shaped fat bodies, does anyone else have suggestions?
We got lots of suggestions from people, so I thought I’d consolidate ‘em all in one post for ease!
rawkabilly says: for person asking about plus-sized swimsuits: they are still expensive but they are pretty and all the people I know with them love them: http://www.modcloth.com/store/ModCloth/Womens/Swimwear
It’s a bit limited but I hear their stuff is good. I hope that helps!
they are around $60 and they have some that are on sale. Some of them do look old lady-ish but a lot of them are really cute. this one can definitely be a head turner.
kittypirateship says: I got a really, really cute one-piece from Torrid. Granted, it cost about 70 bucks (which I think is insane), but it’s worth it. It’s the first (and only) bathing suit I’ve had that I actually find myself to look cute in.
elyseexplosion says: The biggest problem I’ve had with Old Navy bathing suits I found is that they are for gals with much smaller chests than me - and I have a DD cup. I also like the bathing suits at Target, but they don’t offer much more support up top.
anon says: Target, Kohls, and Torrid all have cute swimsuits too! :)
libbydougherty says: ASOS plus has awesome ones. Walmart has the GORGEOUS red bathing suit that is both straight and plus size I believe and its only 30 bucks and has gotten awesome reviews. http://www.walmart.com/ip/Shape-Solutions-by-Catalina-Women-s-Shirred-Halter-Swimsuit/15149481
Old navy is also good, but not my favorite.
ihavesubtitlingonlife says: They actually have some really great plus-sized suits at Walmart right now. I got a great pin-up style suit for $30.
fatfashionandpenguins says: Well I am small chested C cup and I wear Targets Maternity swimsuits. I love them. I have a long torso and a big tummy (size 20/22) and the XXL swimsuits fit GREAT. And they are usually way cuter than the plus size bathing suits. If you have bigger boobs try them on. Also they are reasonably priced. But the stores have a better selection than online.
I’ll add more responses if we get them, so watch this post if you’re interested! :)
In addition to the given suggestions I would like to add Cato’s if they are available where you are they have one store with two sides: one plus one “needs a sandwich” ;-) They are very affordable. Also the Avenue can be when they have a sale. (Sorry I couldn’t figure out how to reply to the question). THANK YOU TO WHOEVER STARTED THIS SITE. :)
I need a site and/or store with cute dresses to wear to a wedding...it's cocktail attire. Thank you :)
If you’re near the NYC area I suggest going to Re/Dress which is fabulous. Followers any other suggestions?
