Plus Size Fashions: Fashion isn’t Just for Skinny People

This is the best online outlet, and a great place to pick up cheap designer items. The plus-size section tends to be a little boring, but it’s possible to find deals like a Dana Buchman top for up to 80% off retail.


Stop by for toilet paper and leave with an outfit. Even the Isaac Mizrahi line goes up to size 18.



Come for the shoes. Stay for the clothes. The small but well-stocked plus-size section includes items from the main store.


Wal-Mart’s George line is hot! Where else could you score this seasons hottest style, the boucle jacket, for $26? More items are being added each day!


Torrid is THE best place to shop if you are a young, hip, plus size fashionista. From their 50’s inspired prom dresses to their low rise jeans, this store definitely sheds the plus size grandma myth. Plus the items are reasonably priced with most items below $50.

Size Appeal

Straight off the runway and on to this site, Size Appeal has current styles that will appeal to fashionistas who are looking for runway inspired clothing in larger sizes. Clothing canbe a little generic at times (like something you can pick up at the local Target), but you can find some interesting pieces from time to time.

    I love Fashion Just isn’t for skinny people.  I myself have always been a plus size and always will be.  I now have a daughter who is 6 and is also going to be a plus size.  You article is great and very inspiring to me.  Thanks so much for the low rise pants sections as well.  I see so many people who should not be wearing them, but have them on.  I will pass on your website and the article to my other plus size friends.  Once again Thank you.

    Great article. I am a plus-size momma who has style. I get so frustrated sometimes when I am shopping, because I have no problem finding the clothing with no shape, no style and designed to be worn by my grandmother. I love it when I can find the items that are similar to those that I find in fashion mags. P.S. when will they stop making tops with horizontal stripes??
