Okay you know what? I’m done with only having the internet as a shopping destination. I want to get cute, walk out into the world, touch things with my hands, carry them around the store for an hour, and then have to decide between rent and new, gorgeous clothes. That’s the sort of behavior I’m desperate to self destruct with again. I know I’m not alone, but it’s so hard to find in person plus size shopping!
So guess what babes? I’m hooking you up with a solid list of in person shopping destinations for the curvy gal. That’s right. Warm those wallets up.
Don’t get me STARTED on this gorgeous place. I love it, and I mean love it. A plus size consignment store, it’s a great option for shopping sustainably through trades. You shouldn’t be surprised to come across killer finds from most popular brands, often tags-on or very lightly worn. It’s cute, trendy, and a plus-sized owned business. We love supporting plus size business folks, right? Get over there!
Who doesn’t love a vintage, classic glamour moment? Look no further than Unique Vintage. The perfect combination of classy and timeless with a modern edge, Unique Vintage has been a destination for plus size glamour seekers for a long time! I even got my prom dress there. They carry through a 5x, and have well-made pieces.
Babes, are you looking for a place where you can find t-shirts casually referencing your mental illness, your distaste for the male gaze, and your desire to be left alone at almost all times? Please, for the love, go to Proud Mary Fashion. Not only is it the perfect destination for the everyday edgy plus gal, it’s a treasure trove of 70s vintage finds. Get there and get there fast.
Okay friends, this is the one for the super trendy babe who’s looking to keep up with the cutting edge of fashion. It’s affordable, modern, trendy, and carries their plus sizes in the stores in malls! I believe they recently launched quite a few in person options across the US, so check it out if you’re feeling called. One note, they only carry up to a size 24.
I mean, do I really need to go into detail here? Torrid has been holding it down for the plus babes for longer than almost anyone else. With great in person options for basics, trendy pieces, undergarments, and everything to satisfy the fangirl and fanboy in you – Torrid is an absolute classic.
Lane Bryant is a great option for classic, staple, timeless basics and lasting options. When you’re in doubt about finding something that will “work” for the interview, the classy brunch, the family reunion, the first foray back to the office after a year and a half in leggings – Lane Bryant is your destination. Classy with a hint of sexy, Lane Bryant is the move.
We love Anthro and they within the last two years have expanded + launched their plus size line. The only location in Los Angeles that carries their plus size line is the Pasadena store. I had an amazing experience shopping in store and loved the super helpful staff. Anthropologie is perfect if you’re looking to spend $100+ on really gorgeous plus pieces!
There you go! Go forth, friends. Shop, love, and get to struttin’ your stuff this summer.
