Top 10 Most Fashionable Plus Size Websites
Plus Size clothing websites are popping up everywhere. Retailers are finally learning that the average size in America is a size 14, and not a size 6. For many years, larger sized women had to suffer at the hands of fashion, being restricted to ugly prints, elastic band pants, 'moo-moos', and just flat out ugly clothing. This is no longer the case, fashion truly is one size fits all, being available to anyone who wants it, regardless of their actual dress size.
Here is a list of the top 10 most fashionable websites available to plus size women.
1. ASOS Curve
This is mainly a standard size website for both men and women, with an extensive plus size section titled 'Curve'. Although they are out of the UK, there is a US website. They are constantly staying ahead of the trends and feature extremely stylish clothing at affordable prices. This website is by no means cheap, but the fashion is well worth it. They have cute, trendy, well tailored and fashionable items.
This site is solely dedicated to sizes 14 and up. They have an extremely large selection of trendy and fashionable items. They have an excellent and diverse denim selection. Their shoe selection is also impressive, featuring wider width shoes. They even have a section titled 'retro chic' , marketing towards a more alternative customer.

Lane Bryant has come a long way since their mail order catalogues filled with constant "fashion don'ts". They now have items that are actually contemporary. You may not find the most fashionable and on trend items here, but all of the looks are modern and are great for key pieces in your wardrobe. Their lingerie line 'cacique' is beyond amazing and any plus size girl should invest in their bra's. Cacique's bra collection includes items that actually look like bras, that have sex appeal and do not look like body armor.They are a brand that is specifically dedicated to sizes 14 and up.

Old Navy has also joined in on the plus size fashion revolution bandwagon, increasing their sizes up to 30, available exclusively online. This is another great site for wardrobe essentials such as cardigans, denim, khakis, and tank tops. The price tag isn't too bad either.
This is a German clothing website that recently started a US edition website. They advertise having designer fashion for sizes 12-28. The clothes are beautiful and extremely fashionable but also come with that 'designer' price tag. They have a great selection of trendy outerwear.

Head straight for the sale section.
They advertise on their site 'sophisticated style sizes 10 and up'. Their clothes are exactly that, sophisticated, polished, and elegant. They have a large selection of dresses and evening wear.
