Behind the cut because there's lots of links!Collapse )

thank you for this! i'm adding it to my memories so i can always find it because i will DEFINITELY be referring to it often! :-D

Thank you!!! I have a few links that I don't think you have listed . . .

http://community.livejournal.com/fatshionista/1311479.html -- this post has a bunch of ebay retailers

Oh, Free People goes up to a size 12/L and from friends that wear them, they run very small. And I got all excited for a minute . . . :-)

Don't Tell Me What Size I Must B - http://www.geocities.com/tenorqueen - which has an extensive fashion directory and active message board

Thanks for this one, it's been added.

if you google "notes from the fatosphere" you will find a feed that combines a whole bunch of fat blogs onto one feed. It is awesome!

Awesome! I added Fat Fu. :-)

Is The Buckle listed here because of their shoes? Because I can't seem to find any plus sizes on their website.

Their shoes are killer, but they're also listed because they do have a few things to size 24 (currently just a few pairs of jeans).

Here are some Australian plus size online shopping links:


City Chic

Taking Shape

Whirling Turban sells custom made vintage dresses.

Added! Sorry for the delay!

online clothing resources (one of which is my own clothing line):


and a couple of local portland shops:



Added! Sorry for the delay, and thanks for the info!!


6pm.com is a Zappos clearance web-site for items that don't sell (shoes, clothes, bags, et cetera) that I found today. They have some killer deals!

Awesomeness! I've just added this (sorry for the delay).

Kinda like an ebay for goth clothes with a nice plus size section: http://www.velvetgarden.net/plus_size.html

There's a small plus size section; they've put 4 of their most popular items and if it's a hit, they'll put more things up! :D http://www.retroscopefashions.com/index2.html

no joke just looking at this almost makes me wanna cry. It's so hard to keep up your (specifically my! :P) confidence when you have to go to 6 stores just to find some damn pants!

i have now offically spent an entire evening doing nothing but looking at cloths online! haha, awesome

Unique Vintage has a lot of cute stuff, and many items go up to sizes 2x-3x.
