I’m sure you can relate to the frustration of trying to find clothes that are comfortable, cute and affordable. Many times, I have ventured to shopping centers in the hopes of finding something but often I am left disappointed. So many plus size clothing for some reason are riddled with patterns such as florals, stripes, hearts, etc. I’m not sure where the memo that fat girls liked to walk around with smiley faces and flowers all over their clothing but I would definitely like to take that memo down and burn it. More essentials please!
The unfortunate reality is that malls and shopping centers tend to be limited in their clothing options for us. So, where do we find our plus size wardrobe essentials?
Sometimes, we try and squish ourselves into clothes that aren’t made for us, feeling like there aren’t any other options. But there are other options! Fortunately, online shopping exists, and I have spent the last few years of my life scoping out where to get the best clothes for unique bodies like my own.
Not only online shopping, but there are emerging plus size boutiques as well, in-person… We will leave this for another day; we are talking about online options to play in right now.
Below are some new places for finding plus size fashion for any occasion!

Though not as affordable as some of the other brands listed, ASOS is an absolute necessity for creating an interesting plus size wardrobe.
I would suggest getting your statement pieces from ASOS to dress up basics from more affordable websites. ASOS is also a great resource for finding comfortable denim pieces with lots of stretch!
If money is tight, ASOS also has a section on their website called ‘Outlet’ where you can find mega bargains on everything from clothes to accessories to shoes. With sales often including upwards of 50% off, you can really get value for your money if you know where to look.
