Finding Plus Sized Teen Girls' Clothing

My daughter is 13 and is starting to get style conscious. That would be enough of a challenge for this single mom, but she also needs plus size clothes. Can anyone point me to affordable places for us to shop for her outfits?

Shop Woman Within

Woman Within is a reasonably-priced catalog and online source for plus-size women's clothing. While they do have some matronly clothes, they also have a wide variety of all-age basics like tees, jeans and leggings. They also have cute, stylish tops and dresses that would be teen-appropriate, along with undergarments, shoes, outerwear and sleepwear. I've been a happy, satisfied customer for many years.

Watch Thrift Stores for Plus Sized Teen Girls' Clothing

Try Ross Dress for Less and also local thrift stores. Most thrift stores have a section for plus size clothing and I often find cute stuff there. I would recommend getting a few nice basics like skinny jeans, bootleg jeans, etc., and then adding in some cheaper tops and accessories. Check with your local thrift stores about their sales too. Our local one has all clothing half off on Saturdays. Also, you can get awesome summer clearance at the end of fall and amazing winter clearance in the spring.

Don't Give Up if Not in Stores

Unfortunately, most of the larger stores that teens like carry only sizes that are small in the stores, but online they carry larger sizes. Some of these stores are Victoria Secret and Delias. So if you cannot find the size you need locally, try online. Try to keep your daughter with a positive body image. My 13-year old-daughter has a curvy figure, but junior clothing is cut for straight figures.

Keep Your Eye on the Clearance

H & M has great plus size stuff for teens. Torrid has great stuff as well. It has slightly higher prices but keep an eye on the clearance stuff on the web. I sure wish these had existed when I was going through that problem!

Competitive Prices, Trendy Items

The plus-size store Avenue is where I find all of my trendy items. They have a section dedicated to $6.99 to $9.99 out-of-season items. After the holidays, I've scored camisoles for as little as $3.99 and jeans for $9.99, which is unheard of when you consider their closest competitor's sale price is $59.99.

For basics, I found a consignment shop in my area that specializes in plus-sizes. The prices are affordable and they have a different sale almost every weekend.

Internet Has Opened Endless Possibilities

When I was younger, I had the same issues. There were no good options. Fortunately, the internet has opened up endless possibilities. Some stores, like Old Navy, offer sizes that are not in the store. Plus, there are many others. Have your daughter search or search with her.
