Where to Find Plus Size Dresses Online

Finding Dresses Can Be Hard

Finding clothes in general for a plus size gal can be a huge challenge. Many stores don't carry plus size clothing. During tough times, some retailers cut plus size line offerings because making and carrying the clothing is expensive.

The limited offering available is often full of old lady clothing that not even old ladies would want to be caught wearing.

Anything over a size 12 is considered plus size. In America, more people wear size 12+ than under size 12, but the designs and resources just aren't there.

Sometimes shopping online is the only option for finding plus size dresses. And, even then finding anything that will work can be tough.

I've scoured these sites and resources to find the best of plus size dresses online.

A few stores have entered the clothing market focusing solely on plus size clothing. These include Torrid and Lane Bryant, and other's.

They're websites are a great place to look for plus size dresses, although both will have limited formal options. I'll look at options for formal plus size dresses a little further down in the article.

Lane Bryant is a large plus size retailer with stores across the country. They are pricey though, and their clothing is very trendy. Finding timeless pieces can be difficult, but on the other hand, finding chic in style pieces is a bonus.

Torrid is a plus size retailer that's geared to a younger market, but has some dresses. 

Ashley Stewart is another nation wide retailer, with cheaper prices.

Formal Wear

Getting married, going to the prom, or being a bridesmaid can be stressful for plus size woman. They're choices for finding dresses is limited and sometimes they can't wear the same clothing styles as they're smaller sized friends.
