place to find good plus size deals?
hmmmm... i'm a 14 -- sometimes 16 and rarely an 18 - i normally go for dresses that are a-;ine and hit me right at the knee since i'm super short too
target, nordstrom, kohls, i look everywhere!
it's wierd, but stuff at lane bryant doesnt fit me right -- i think b/c i'm so short and all my fat is in my belly area... so if i pulled a plus size pair of jeans - i am swimming in them everywhere else b/c i'm only fat in my beer and wings tummy hahahahaa
so my butt and my thighs are much much smaller - i look so wierd! hahaha
so for now - i just go for XL and i look for matte jersey dresses, jeans with lycra in them, etc...
I tend to find stuff at NY&Co, Dress Barn and Old Navy.
Oh yea. lycra in the jeans is a MUST!!! I love Dress Barn when the are having a sale, it is def not your "mom's" dresses there anymore!
I know! Dress Barn has so much better stuff than it sounds like it would! I'm embarrassed to go in there because it sounds so uncool, but they have some great stuff....and some awesome sales!
We have Cato stores here, and they have some good stuff. Does everybody have those?
Lane Bryant and Fashion Bug are kind of hit-or-miss for me. And occasionally I'll order from the Womens section on Oldnavy.com.
It's funny Laura, everytime I wear a dress from dress barn all my friends say how much they love it, when I tell them where I got it, the are blown away! Love it!
my civil ceremony dress is from dress barn! LOL! most def not your grammy's dress barn anymore!
The one time I shopped at Dress Barn (there aren't any near me) I got GREAT things at a great deal.
Mostly I shop at Ross or Lane Bryant but only the latter when I have coupons / gift cheques and even then, I beeline for the clearance racks. That's the only way to get REALLY great deals there.
I've heard that Old Navy has great stuff in plus sizes but I haven't been there yet. Going to have to check it out!
I <3 Ross! There are none in my area though :(
For me it all depends on what stores have. I have a problem where plus size is too big but other stores are too small. I love Avenue for pants because thats where I'm plus size. If I want something fun I love going to Torrid becuase they have 0 in their X sizes. I'll have to check out Ross.
I"m a size 0 at Torrid too, and I LOVE that! They can be pricey though. I do love Cato, and they always have cute shoes too! Old Navy's jeans seem to fit me the best. Fashion Bug around here has taken a dive, but I love the clearance racks at Target & Dress Barn. =)
Tigergirl, I totally agree with Fashion Bug! I can't stand how they mix ladies & woman's together. I used to just make a bee line over to the Woman's section, now I have to hunt thru the whole store, very inconvenient!!
I'm all about the Fashion Bug. It's my shopping addiction and not very expensive compared to many places. I buy all my jeans there (Zana Di - Goes up to size 32) and guess what? They're starting their own line of wedding dresses. :) Nothing too fancy just yet, and I'm not a fan of the styles they've put out so far, but I'm excited they're headed in that direction. Creepily, I haven't been in there since the big change-up, but I'm sure it's got perks.
I have to agree with Dress Barn. I get all my dresses from there!
I'm a street size 16 so I shop at Target, Burlington Coat Factory, and Marshalls/TJ Maxx. Sometimes Forever21 but I only buy the stretchy material tops from that store.
I love me some Torrid, Ashley Stewart or www.monifc.com
Anne Taylor Loft, NY & Company, Forever 21 and Target.
Im a old navy outlet type of chic, lol
Ann Taylor Loft, sometimes Lane Bryant, good finds ross/tj maxx, New York and Co
Chico's ( i find good basics), sometimes Cold Water Creek
Gap, Old Navy, NY&Co, and American Eagle (online)!
