Supersize Clothing

Put Away the Caftans!

Caftans can come in lovely patterns and designs; unfortunately they also come with a lot of stigma and stereotypes. Caftans (not to be confused with the tops in the UK) are meant for one thing... lounging around the house or pool.

Most plus size department and specialty stores will stop at 3X for their clothing offerings. This leaves anyone larger than that at a disadvantage clothes wise.

It is hard to go out for a walk or otherwise participate in society when all you can find in your size is a pretty tent. Thank goodness for the Internet!

This lens provides a listing of super-size (for lack of a better term) clothing for women.

If you know of a great shop please contact me through the link to the right and I will check it out.

eShakti Dress

eShakti

Up to 6x

eShakti has an assortment of tops, skirts, and dresses available in sizes xs to 6x. They release new styles and fabrics every season.

Each design can be purchased as is in your size or it can be personally customized. For example the dress at right can be ordered with a longer skirt length and many others can have both the sleeves and length adjusted.

The clothing is well made and quite affordable. Dresses range in price from $60 to $100, tops range in price from $30 to $50 and skirts range in price from $40 to $60. The added customization I mentioned is only $7.50

Ulla Popken

Up to 6x

With over twenty years experience making plus size clothing for women, Ulla Popken has grown its own niche catering primarily to the 40 plus group but there are many styles for women of all ages. They carry an assortment of tops, bottoms, and dresses available in sizes xl to 6x (although all sizes do not come in 6x -- each section has a special "Styles to 36/38" so you do not have to weed through the clothing that will not fit.

They do release some new styles each season but you will find many of the same items available months later which is not necessarily a bad thing if you find yourself falling in love with something and want to get another.

The clothing ranges from affordable to pricey. Dresses range in price from $39 to $150, tops range in price from $29 to $160 and bottoms range in price from $29 to $160.

Seal With a Kiss (SwakDesigns)

Up to 6x

This company has grown in leaps and bounds the last two years.

SwakDesigns offers trendy and stylish tops, bottoms, and dresses in sizes 1x to 6x.

Their clothing is affordable and so are their shipping costs -- yes they ship internationally. And pretty quick about it too.

They have a lot of signature pieces which are incredibly popular that they bring back in new colors the following season.

I love that they make use of amazing plus size models and guest models who actually have some meat on them.

They also carry petite and tall sizes.

They have a huge selection of tops, bottoms and dresses to choose from in casual to every day styles. Their clothing is very affordable: Dresses range in price from $30 to $45, tops range in price from $18 to $40 and bottoms range in price from $15 to $40.

At the moment CJ Banks is offering extended sizes in 4x and 5x for their tops, bottoms, denim, dresses etc.

Each section has an additional tab where you can click on the 4x/5x section. There is a surprising selection of tops to choose from, a moderate selection of pants, and a small slection of dresses/skirts.

Prices are incredibly reasonable at regular prices and the sale prices are phenomenal.

      @biggirlfinest13: I'm not sure what size you are but Torrid tends to deal to a younger audience. Although I wouldn't say what is above is "grandma lookish". It's all in how you wear and accessorize it. I will agree though, it is hard to find nice budget wise "super size" clothing which is unfortunate. Good luck!

      @anonymous: Thanks for popping by Margaret, I hope you find a new store to love. I find Pennington's can be hit and miss over the years. Last year there was not an awful lot I loved but this year I am finding more. The best thing is having more than one store for an option. Happy shopping!

      I usually shop at Pennington's which is less than satisfactory. I'm glad to see this line up of Plus size clothing and will try some of the stores.

      Great lens, but you knew that :) Just wanted to remind you that this is featured on the Women and Girls Shopping Headquarters: http://www.squidoo.com/groups/women-girls

      It's now transformed into a lensography and I would love it if you could feature it here, or lensroll it or something.
