The best plus size fashion stores to shop online

It’s taken a while, but online retailers are finally beginning to catch on that women—all women—want fun, affordable and exciting clothes.

Let’s be honest. Shopping as a plus size woman is no easy feat. And shopping online? It can seem impossible, especially when the clothing selection in the plus size world can be so limited. It's no wonder you can feel like you’ve been forgotten.

But women in Canada—especially women who wear sizes beyond a 14—have been vocal about wanting more, and better, options to shop. Why aren’t more brands offering clothing to cater to all sizes, from zero to twenty-two and more? Luckily, there is beginning to be a better selection out there. With some dedicated digging and internet sifting, we have struck plus-size gold. Here is a look at some of the best plus size online shopping spots that cater to women who often find themselves left out of the fashion conversation.

 

MISSGUIDED+

This shop offers styles you didn’t even know you wanted.  Its trend-focused pieces are offered from sizes 12 – 20, and Missguided+ offers a wide array of clothing, from the cutest party dresses to the perfect heels to compliment your look. Consider this shop a must for any bold fashion lover. The best part? They ship to Canada for only $5!

 

Le Chateau

Although you probably know and love this Canadian brand, which has been around since 1959, you might not be aware that Le Chateau is committed to offering a robust collection of plus fashion, with sizes from 12 – 22 in its plus section.

Toronto-based designer, Lesley Hampton, has really begun to make a name for herself in the Canadian fashion industry. With some styles up to a 4X, Lesley Hampton is the place to shop for luxury eveningwear and special occasions.

As an added bonus, Hampton donates a portion of her profits to mental health and body positive initiatives.

She’s quickly become a favourite of many Canadian celebrities like Roxy Earle, Cheryl Hickey and Margaret Trudeau.
