Here is a page where I put together all the Plus size brands with online retail I find decent.
Online Shopping is getting so easy nowadays, all you need to know is how the brand fits you by getting to know their clientele base; very simple theory.
How to choose the brand suitable for your style
One of the most useful tips is – if you are not familiar with shopping online; find things that contains the material LYCRA®. It stretches so it’s comfortable, it’s thicker than just putting elastin in the fabric and of it’s higher quality. If you have chosen the right size with correct measurement, they will always fit because of the stretch. Otherwise having elastin in the fabric would help a lot too so check the material they mention on the page. Although with LYCRA® or Elastin, the fit will be more figure hugging, and designed to be more sensual or at times revealing (wrap dress, low cut, cut out, crop details); but they are absolutely flattering.
Unless you are ready for fashion forward clothing, as most of the time
you will be wearing clothes that has no stretch, tighter fit, do go for comfort first.
I think Fashion styling is a journey in fashion itself, so no one can really tell you what to wear. All you need to do is keep being adventurous and try different things. Go to a store where they sell plus size, try as many as you want in the changing room to learn what’s best for you. Also watch and learn from various bloggers on how to match their outfits, get inspired.
I will simply put these brands into different 5 categories
Fashion Labels ($$$-$$$$), Elegant ($$-$$$), Street Style ($$-$$$) multiple brands ($-$$$$) and High Street Fashion ($-$$$)
High Street Fashion ( for “in-betweenies:
mostly up to UK18/US14)
For Independent Designers go to this post.
