Top 3 Online Stores for the Plus size woman


Being a plus size woman has its pros and cons. You will scrounge through the Internet with sites continually catering to the average size woman. Shopping at the malls can also be time consuming especially when you find an outfit and they are not in your size. Gaining weight can be stressful enough; but shopping online does not have to be rocket science if you know where to look. Feeling beautiful in lingerie should be enjoyable for every woman.

Taking the time to help a friend and conducting a survey with over 50 plus size women, it has been found that 98% of them shop these 3 three online stores. Amazingly it was the large online department store that did not cater to them; but smaller mom and pop shops who understood what a woman looks for and offered high-end clothing at affordable prices. Every woman should look beautiful no matter what size they are.

1. Studio Europe out of Australia is a small business which has been in business since 2003. It used to be a woman could only dream of one day wearing European lingerie. Now from the comfort of your own home you can wrap yourself in European luxury when you shop with Studio Europe. Camis, teddies, chemise, shape wear, plus size underwear, bras and more can be found all under one umbrella. If you are seeking customer service, look no further you found the right place.

Famous fashion designers from American to Italian have hand-picked and designed beautiful lingerie pieces that will look stunning on your figure.

2. SimplyBe is all about fashion. The biggest complaint from plus size women is the clothing is unattractive and unappealing. If you shop simplybe the clothing is crafted beautifully. There designers have paid attention to fashion and detail. Because a woman has added a few pounds does not mean she has to dress frumpy. Capri's, shorts, blouses, dresses and style can be yours when you shop their online store.

3. lives by their name. Sometimes all women need a little pampering and department stores just won't do it. You find lingerie you are in love with and when you look at the size it always seems to be smaller than what you anticipated. With herroom they pride themselves on catering to the bodacious woman. Being plus size does not mean you have to settle for less. Panties, shapewear and sleepwear are some of the merchandise that is offered on their online store.

What sets them apart from the rest is exemplary customer service, return policy and high-end merchandise at affordable prices. If you are looking to shop online and are tired of the hustle and bustle of malls,shopping online is right from the comfort of your own home. The shipping and delivery right to your door is impeccable! Rarely will you receive damaged merchandise and should it happen just contact them and they will be happy to assist you. With over hundreds of online shops these three are top of the line for shopping online.

Very kewel AE. I have a few friends that I am gonna forward this too. I wish I was able to shop in normal stores. But even though I am happily plump, I am only one inch tall and nothing fits me. I even have to take the hem in on Barbie handmedowns. But really this is a great little article. Kudos. LOL!

Useful Hub AEvans! Most Stores do not store clothes for plus size people and these sort of specialized shops are a real blessing for such people. Hub Voted up as useful.

bibi16: I polled women and these are the top 3 stores and they have clothing to fit from small to tall so you may not have to take up the hemline anymore. Glad you appreciated the work to complete the list and its okay to be happily plump. You are beautiful just the way you are. :)

Shooping-Online: That is the problem my friend said she has always had. She was in the military and used to be thin, then she was discharged because she ended up sick after she came back from Iraq. The steroids they placed her on has caused her to gain an extra 80 pounds. She is not happy with her weight but I told her to love herself. Women are beautiful no matter what size they are. These stores offer beautiful merchandise at affordable prices. :)

thanks for this AEvans. It is really really hard to find something beautiful when you're in a plus size, and especially so when you're under 5'. I have lost a lot of weight during the last eight months or so, but am still not fashionably 'skinny', nor would I wish to be, and it's so good to know that there are lovely places to cater for us real 'un-skinny people' of this world. Going to take a look......

Pauline Davenport: You are welcome. All women are beautiful no matter what size they are and don't feel uncomfortable with your size. There are so many reasons all women gain weight or have a few pounds. There are beautiful things out there, you will find them. :)

tjdavis: I am so glad you have the opportunity to be comfortable. I had to talk with women about the concerns they had when shopping. I do have to say they were delighted that I could write an article about it so that it could assist others. :) Thank you so much for commenting an appreciating the article. :)
