Off Topic gushing about Kohl's! (Click to show)
I second Kohl's! A good 75-80% of my wardrobe is either thrift shop finds or Kohl's clearance rack. Sign up for their emails, I wait for a 15-20% coupon to be emailed to me, then I go in, shop their clearance, and then you can use the extra coupon to take off the percentage ON TOP OF the clearance prices. At the bottom of your receipt, they'll circle how much you saved that day (based off of the full retail price of the items). My mantra is that if I'm not "saving" at least 3-4x the cost of what I'm spending, I'm not shopping at Kohl's right.
I'm not plus-size, but my hubby's aunt is, and she's my Kohl's shopping buddy. They have an incredible range of styles and sizes, their stuff holds up really well, and they have a super-generous return policy if something doesn't work once you get it home.

They have a gallery where you can share pictures, and it links to the page of each item...so great to be able to see the clothes on different bodies and get an idea of how they might look in person!
I'll definitely order from asos at some point, now, though! Thanks!
Ladies, there are so many options out there now for us curvy plus size gals...granted, not as many stores dedicated solely to us, but it's better than it used to be. ASOS & ModCloth have some great stuff. I know that online shopping scares most of us - plus sized or not - but here are a few tips from someone who does the bulk of her clothing shopping online (especially since two of my favorite brick & mortar stores closed!).
1. Read the reviews
2. Take note of the fabric content. I do this and then try to compare it to something in my closet. It gives you an idea of how it might lay on you, etc.
3. Google images of the piece of clothing in question. I do this sometimes when the article of clothing on the website is not shown on what I consider to be a "plus size girl". You might find the item shown on an actual girl from a blog....which is how I stumbled upon this blog http://www.stylepluscurves.com/
I am giving Gwynnie Bee a whirl on a free trial subscription. The concept intrigues me, though I'm not sure I'll stick with it beyond the trial.
Other places I like to shop at are: Simply Be, Kiyonna, Kristin Miles & Nordstrom. Of course there are a ton of other places like Macy's, IGIGI, Lane Bryant, Ashley Stewart...
