Wal-Mart is great place to purchase accessories like tights in basic colors (gray, black and brown) as well as costume jewelry specifically made for plus size women. We found on trend gold bangles for less than $7 for a group of 10. However, the handbag, belt, and hat collections are best left alone.

Be a product junkie
The drugstore beauty products will have their CoverGirl, Revlon and Lip Smacker dreams come true in these aisles. With a wider selection of colors than most competitors, you’ll do well if you’re looking for a exact shade you saw in “In Style.” The same goes for hair products where you’ll find shampoo for less than $2 up to $17 for the pricier bottles from Biolage Matrix and Bed Head.
