I’m a 30-year-old woman with big breasts, big thighs and a roll. Let’s be real. I do ALOT of shopping online. The good thing is there are more options than ever and I’m glad about it. Gone are the days when you had to walk around in a mumu and oversized tees if you are plus size. Here are the best sites for online shopping if you’re a size 12 and up.
Asos is my Number 1 choice for plus size shopping for trendy clothes as well as simpler pieces. When I want something fun and flirty I definitely go here. The huge plus size of Asos is that it has such a wide selection of items such as leggings, coats and dresses. The downside is the sizing. It is really hit or miss until you try a few brands and styles, but once you get it down you’ll want to order something every week. Check out the plus sizes by clicking on the “Curve and Plus Size” section of th website.
Dresses, dresses, dresses! Dresses are the only items I’ve ever ordered from eShakti. This site sells dresses that you can customize up to a size 6X (36W). Customization includes neckline, hem length and sleeve style. The site always has some type of deal going on too. Most of the dresses are retro-inspired and as a result the site includes a lot fo A-line and sheaths. eShakti also sells skirts, shirts and jackets.
It was gone, now it’s back. Eloquii was once a spinoff of The Limited and a destination shopping destination for workwear and attire suitable for a sophisticated night out. Then in late 2013 the site was shut down and Eloquii was no more. Women got mad, wrote letters and the website came back no longer a part of The Limited. The style of clothing remains the same, smart work wear. The price point is pretty high, but the quality is excellent.
I like Torrid. A lot. While not for everyone, I find it to be my go-to shop for casual, cute clothes and get this, sexy bras! It also has wide calf boots (I don’t wear wide calf, but for those that need it, I know this is a huge plus for any retailer). The jeans from Torrid are absolutely amazing. I am lucky enough to live near a Torrid, so I rarely buy anything online, but for those of you that do not live near one, buy what you want online.
Lane Bryant is tried and true. Your mom may even love it. And surprisingly, that is okay! The store really does have something for everyone. You can also earn Real Women dollars here! I like Lane Bryant for business clothes. I am not a fan of the store’s jeans, though I do have one or two pairs that I got when I worked there in college.
Hips & Curves
I discovered this lingerie site earlier this year and love it. It can be so hard to find sexy lingerie and Hips & Curves solves that problem.
