As we've never met, you should know that I'm a 5'2", 195 pound fashionably-challenged woman. Between my lack of style, extra curves, and the limitations of my wallet, it's no wonder that I usually don't enjoy shopping for clothes.
But when I do find myself in the market and mood to shop, I often turn to the internet. Most product descriptions include reviews from real women (that's a bit debated on other items, such as appliances and electronics, but I think these are true reviews) that help weed out things that probably wouldn't work for me. They soften share their measurements, and I can compare mine to theirs.Another advantage is that I can normally find online coupon codes through sites like retailmenot.com to save money on my purchases!
Recently, I've decided that I'd look just lovely in a chevron maxi-dress, and I'm eager to buy one. As expected, I'm having a difficult time finding one in a size 18. No, that's no true...there are plenty out there, but when I hold them up to me, a pile of fabric puddles on the floor around me. I know it's a MAXI dress, but how many 6'6" women are out there? All I know is that uber tall girls are in luck this season!
So, I'm looking for a maxi dress...chevron pattern...size 18...petite length...affordable. It's the proverbial needle in a haystack. While I don't mind looking, it would be nice if I didn't have to look for the haystacks, too! I mean, it would be great to have a list of plus size retailers in one spot, so I could just go from haystack to haystack, right? Well, let's just make one!

I'll get us started with a few retailers who either specialize or simply carry plus-size clothing. Please add any that you like to the linky by clicking "You are next... Click here to enter" at the bottom or by leaving a comment with information for me to add. Thanks and enjoy!
