More Cute Plus Size Tops From Amazon

Updated on January 14, 2016

Amazon is a Great Source for Plus Size Tops

Do you find it challenging to find cute clothes that fit your size? If you are shopping retail, you might not always find what you need. But Sometime, no matter how hard we look, we cannot find anything that looks good. Therefore, shopping online is another option.

Overall, the advantage of shopping online is that retailers can specialize in a certain product because they are potentially serving people world-wide or at least country-wide. Therefore, you can often find things online that you might not find in your local stores. This is especially true if you live in a smaller centre, where it is even harder to find plus-sized clothing.

Amazon is a place where it is possible to purchase clothes online.In this hub, I am going to share some of the cutest plus size tops I found on Amazon.com. I will share three brands that sell items on Amazon and review each one with some example of their tops.

Kiyonna Fashion Shoot

More About Ruching

The Z. Cavaricci seem to feature a lot of ruching. Ruching is a sewing technique that is very flattering for all body types. A ruched top pulls in your tummy and cinches in the waist. It almost works as a form of built-in corset for the wearer.

Kiyonna Tops

The next brand I am going to look at is the Kiyonna brand of tops. They have a good selection of clothes available on Amazon. Many of the tops feature ruching and would be very flattering for most figure types. By checking on the Kiyonna website itself, I found mostly good reviews about these tops. Buyers mentioned that the top was sexy without being too revealing and that it was good quality.

Kiyonna stores have an interesting history. According to the store's website, the owner, Kim Camarella-Khanbeigi, was inspired to start the store in 1996 after having a holiday with a friend and noticing that the friend had no tags on her clothing. The friend, a plus-sized woman, had her mother design all of her clothing because she could not find anything stylish to wear in the stores.

Kim was just in business school and needed a business plan, so she started doing research with plus-sized women. What she found out was that they did not have enough places to shop! After she graduated, Ms. Camarella-Khanbeigi went ahead and started one of her own. And the rest is history, as they say.

The Kiyonna tops seem to be pretty expensive, with the tops being over $60.00. From my research online, though, the quality really seems to be there with this store. It is worthwhile, though, to check for clearance items if price is a concern. With 100 stores across the country, you can also check local stores for deals. This company also uses beautiful plus size models in their advertising, as well.

Review Of Torrid

Chiffon

This light, airy material is very feminine and was historically considered to be a fabric of the wealthy.

It has been generally used in evening wear but now is also used in tops, lingerie, scarves and skirts. It is very delicate and must be treated with care.

Chiffon can be a very good choice for a plus sized woman because it does not add bulk to the body.

It is important to get a good fit with this material, however, because if it is too tight it can really emphasize the rolls.

Torrid Line

The last brand I am going to look at is the Torrid line. Torrid is one of the most well-known and popular plus-size stores in the U.S.A. Torrid has a full range of clothing at the Torrid Website and sells everything from jackets to lingerie. I have heard very good feedback about Torrid. The clothes tend to be on the more expensive side but they are of good quality, so it's a matter of getting what you pay for.

Torrid is features a number of very cute and trendy tops. Here are some examples of what they offer:

  • Tops made from chiffon. . These tops can be flattering for several reasons: they are layered with a sheer overlay. As well, the light air material does not add bulk to the body.
  • Another beautiful material that Torrid features is crochet. Tops feature crocheted material around the neckline, enhancing the sleeves, or on the waist. Crochet, a throwback from the 70's, has a boho, carefree feeling to it. It is a very feminine material and can be pretty but I think should be worn in small doses. If worn without some other material to break up, crochet could be far too bulky and age a person.

      @Hi Realhousewife, I know! Some of the stores have little tiny sizes and it's like the rest of the world doesn't exist. There are places out there to shop but a person has to really seek them out. Thanks for the great comment!

      @Cloverleaf, thank you so much for the support! I am so glad you enjoyed it. Have a great day!

      Hi Prairie Princess - great hub!! My middle daughter wears plus size clothing and shopping is a big drag for her! And I have to say - JC Penny calls their line of clothing "Pretty Plus" which I think is horrible. Why can't they leave the p,us put of it?? Also I have noticed that stores such as Hollister - Aeropostale - make all their clothes TiNY - and extra large is like a Medium and I wonder - if they do this because they only want a certain body type to fit in their clothes?

      I agree - I hate (and I mean HATE) all the focus on weight in our culture. It's about what's on the inside to me;)!
