Best Women’s Plus Size Clothing Stores

I’m not a huge fan of trying on clothing in-store – so I really love to buy all my clothing online.  

The average woman in Australia is now a size 14 – 16.  So it’s good to see that there are more and more women’s plus-size clothing options for ladies with curves.  Personally, I love buying my clothing online because I absolutely loathe trying on clothing in their little cubicles and being told ‘Ohhh you look darling, darling..” Grrrrrrr.  I want to shop whilst drinking wine in bed and try on clothes at home where it’s private – I know what looks good and what doesn’t!

Plus another MASSIVE advantage of buying online is that you can shop the sales when they come up – and new subscribers often get up to a 20% discount!  Winning! I like getting a good deal!

It’s Not The Size – It’s Style That Counts!

I’ve seen tiny size 8 ladies who dress like homeless people, and I’ve seen bigger ladies who look incredible.  The secret is dressing to their shape, giving themselves a waist, and choosing quality styles.

So here are the top plus-size fashion stores that I love!

Types of Women’s Clothing Most Flattering for Plus Size

When shopping for plus size clothing, look for flattering styles such as:

  • V-necks make you look taller
  • Swing skirts are pretty, and practical and look great with a fitted v-neck shirt
  • Skinny Jeans are a wardrobe staple and look great on everyone.
  • Cropped Jackets really accentuate a smaller waist
  • Long Cardigans look good with skinny jeans

Trying to Hide a Big Tummy?

If you are hiding a big tummy, look for dark-colored drapey style tops and pair them with skinny jeans or a slim pant and a long flowy scarf. Avoid any tops that are tight-fitting.

Create long verticle lines with a long cardigan or a blazer.

When it comes to jeans or pants, go with the elasticized style. They are super comfortable, hold in the tummy, and are very flattering on all shapes.
