Overstock.com . 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.

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

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

Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart’s new 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. 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.
