Plus Size Shopping

[New Video] Plus Size Shopping Guide

Guess what? I made a plus size shopping guide. Holler holler money dollar. Pull up those Spanx girl, because my plus size shopping video is a wee bit long, but you won’t want to miss a single second.

My most asked question EVER is “Where did you get that ____ ?!” I thought it was time I finally answer that question. Even though I list every single outfit detail from my outfits at the end of my blog post, I thought it might be nice to do a comprehensive plus size shopping guide.

In this video, I cover where I buy my tops, jeans, leggings, bras, lingerie, panties, casual wear, and more. I will be doing a follow up video with more summery items like swim suits, shorts, etc. For now, this list should give you a lot of great insight on how I shop for clothes to fit my body. You’ll see who has awesome quality, who has great prices, and who has my heart when it comes to intimates. 😉

As a reference, I’ve listed some of my outfit of the day posts and videos that include pieces of clothing that I mention throughout the video.

I’m always looking to expand my shopping options so if you have ever shopped at Hips and Curves, Lane Bryant, or ASOS Curve, let me know what you think of those stores. I would love your tips and tricks when it comes to shopping there. Do they run big, small, overpriced, long shipping? Spill it all in the comments.

PS. I actually posted this video last week, so if you are following me on YouTube you would’ve already seen it and shopped your heart away by now. Go on now, girl, hit that subscribe button. You totally won’t regret it, I promise. Also, you can use the time stamps in my video description to jump around from topic to topic in the video.

Where do you love to shop?

    you HAVE to try ASOS!!!! they run large, so size down one! i typically buy dresses from there. their standard skater dress that comes in zillions of prints works well for me. their returns are free and painless, too! loved your video – you always have such a sweet energy 🙂

      Thanks for the info! I’ve been hearing that they run large so I’ll definitely take note of that.

    I was just going to write that ASOS run smaller lol… well in skinny jeans they do anyway, in other things they do tend to run a bit larger, like tops and dresses and stuff. 
    In jeans I’m a size 20 Aus, so I’m pretty sure that’s a 16 US. 
    I bought a pair from ASOS and there ain’t no way these skinnies are going all the way up lol :-p 
    Apart from that, ASOS rocks!! They’ve got some gorgeous stuff on there, it’s totally affordable and it’s free shipping woot woot! 
    I’m just bummed that Torrid don’t ship to Australia 🙁

    I love this video! It is super helpful. I’ve been out of high school for a few years and in that time went from 160 to 220, I’ve really hated shopping for clothes, Always felt yucky or like it wouldn’t look good. Recently discovered Torrid, and it may sound cheesy, but it was like a blessing lol. Then when I discovered your videos it also made me feel ALOT better about myself and body shape! Thank you for being so awesome and relatable. (Sorry I don’t have any tips! but thanks soooo much for yours!)
