Best Online Plus Size Clothing Shops
Ok ladies! Let’s keep it real: the plus size shopping situation is still a challenge. We have come SO far since I was a teenager and all I had was the matronly section of a department store. However, we have a long way to go and I personally know how frustrating it can be to discover a new brand and click through to their site, only to find out they don’t carry a plus range. So I’ve come here today with a list of some of the BEST online retailers that you may not know carried plus sizes! That’s right, get those shopping fingers ready, here is a whole post dedicated to the best online plus size clothing you didn’t know existed!

Often known for their perfectly effortless mash up of vintage-inspired pieces with quirky modern looks, ModCloth has become a beacon for plus size shoppers looking for anything from timeless to kitschy.
One of the things I love most about the ModCloth website is that, while they absolutely have an easy-to-navigate ‘plus size’ tab at the top of their page, they also often feature continuous sizing options. Meaning when you see a swimsuit and click on it, all available sizes are shown, rather than having to click through to a different listing for the plus size version.
While this online shop is actually almost plus ONLY (starting at size 10), I included it for a couple reasons: they are still relatively new and lesser known, and one could argue they launched the concept of luxury for plus sizes. If you have ever dreamed of finding pieces from your favorite high-end and runway brands in plus, 11 Honore may just be your new best friend.
From Derek Lam to Zac Posen to Christian Siriano, 11 Honore is bringing runway to the real world.
The on-trend, low-cost fashion powerhouse SheIn that took Instagram by storm will SHOCK you. Their plus size collection has literally thousands of pieces in sizes from 0x-5x. While many originally complained that the site had inconsistent sizing (can be true), they have stepped up their game.They now provide EXACT measurements given for EVERY STYLE in EVERY SIZE.
When shopping make sure to check the measurements and go based off of those. You may find you’re a 1x in some SheIn styles and a 3x in others. The measurements (in my personal experience) have been very accurate. I have personally purchased many things from them and so far out of over 25 items purchased, I returned ONE (shoes) due to a sizing issue, and two other things simply because I didn’t like them on.
One of the most long-awaited and highly anticipated launches of a plus extension was Anthro’s. The selection features a now expansive selection of pieces with their now famous breezy, boho meets luxe aesthetic. The collection is primarily at mid-range investment piece prices, but early reviews are raving for the fit, quality, and designs.
Make sure to check out their sale selection when available, as they do have some great offers on occasion. You can score luxury pieces at a more affordable price point.
UK-based turned global phenomenon ASOS has made quite the name for themselves recently among the blog-o-sphere and plus size Instagram fam for their on-trend plus collection.
With a wide variety of styles and price points, ASOS is capturing the hearts of American and global consumers with everything from t-shirts to cocktail dresses, all in inclusive sizing. They are quickly becoming one of the go-to sites for those looking for the best online plus size clothing selections!
I don’t know about you, but I didn’t even realize for a couple of years that shoe giant Just Fab also sold clothing. When I finally took the plunge and ordered plus size jeans from them last year I was SHOCKED.
THEY. WERE. SO. GOOD.
And I literally hate 95% of jeans (aka leg prisons).
But beyond denim, they have an admirable, affordable, and on-trend selection of plus size pieces. I also love that because they have such an expansive collection of accessories and shoes, Just Fab can essentially be your one-stop shop for things like outfits and vacation packing. I’m about that convenient life, ya feel?
I am going to be the first one to say that I had forgotten Old Navy. I had shoved them to the back of my mind, assuming I had ‘grown out’ of them both literally and figuratively. That they had been there for my teenage, distressed-graphic-tee-wearing self, but they no longer had anything for me, or anything that would fit me.
Well thanks to the good old world of Instagram, this year I was proven wrong. It looks like Old Navy stepped their game up, in the last couple of years specifically. And even more so in their plus size range. From size inclusive swimwear to dresses to denim, Old Navy is back, and they are pushing to reclaim their thrown as the ruler of accessible, affordable, All-American style.
I bet at least a couple of these surprised you! They sure surprised me when I first discovered their plus size collections. While this is just a short list of some of the most underrated or lesser-known retailers who have some of the best online plus size clothing collections, they are quickly becoming some of my favorites.
I am so glad that more and more retailers are starting to include plus sizes in their offerings. After all, the majority (67%) of American women are a size US14 or larger. I hope we continue to see an expansion of inclusive sizing. I would love to see more retailers get on the progress train.
