Cheap Plus Size Clothing For Budget Babes

When I first crossed over from size 18 to 20 and could no longer find clothes that fit in straight sized clothing stores I panicked. My mom jumped in to save the day and got a Lane Bryant store credit card one day after a trip to the mall. I’m certain that she got the credit card after seeing me light up because something in a store actually fit me, probably after several watery eyed trips through stores that had nothing to offer. I’m really lucky that my mom was there to encourage me to find things I loved, even as my body grew (and to finance it!), it made a world of difference in my self love journey and being happy in the body I’m in.

That was about 10 years ago, and the plus size clothing industry has grown exponentially since the days of being stuck shopping at one or two plus size stores. The options are still minimal compared to straight sized clothing.

Cheap options are still a struggle to find for anyone over a size 24, in fact ANY options are hard to find in a size over a 24. But the plus size industry IS growing, and there are a lot of options that many fat babes don’t know about.

I wish I could play mom and finance everyone’s first plus size store credit card, but alas… I’m just a blogger. But I can put together one serious list of all the options you’ve got so you don’t have to wonder around a mall going from one fitting room to another while holding back tears.

“If it’s inaccessible to the poor it’s neither radical nor revolutionary”

Ok, look… I know we’re just talking about clothing here but I frequently feel like all the strides and progress the plus size clothing industry is making are still completely and totally useless for low-income individuals. The feeling of being able to dress yourself in something that makes  you feel good is something that every person should have access to. Loving your body and expressing yourself should not be limited to people who are monetarily wealthy.

So here are some of my favorite picks for beautiful fatshionistas on a budget. Cheap plus size clothes!!!! Everything here is under $50 (and many many things are under 20!).


Soncy is the newest plus size shop on the scene, and holy heck are we excited they’ve joined the plus size community! With sizes ranging from 10 to 30 and everything for less than $100, they’re a budget-friendly staple. Even better? Their styles are an absolute dream! Their collections are curated by in-house stylists and it shows – the looks are on point with options for every occasion. From the office to the south of France, this is your shop for all your wardrobe needs!

Oh, and they offer a VIP program that gives you all sorts of insider perks plus a 24/7/365 discount of 30% off! Can you hear that?  Of course you can, cause that’s a screamin’ deal 😉 !



This site is a new addition to the budget babes line up. Loralette is Avenue’s little sister store. They carry less expensive, more “hip” pieces that are on trend and don’t hurt your pocket book. They’re almost always having a sale (woo-hoo!), and their pieces are adorable. Sizes go up to 3x, and prices start around $20!

Daily Ritual

Have ya’ll seen this new line on Amazon??? Everything is under $30 and IT GOES UP TO SIZE 7X (size 40). All the pieces are basics and essentials that can be dressed up or down. This line is exclusive to Amazon Prime members, don’t worry you can get your 30 day free trial here.

Rainbow Shops

Rainbow sells trendy and basic pieces up to 3X. Their prices go up to about $40 per item, but generally hover just under $20 per piece. I have done several YouTube reviews of their clothes, and they’re definitely a favorite of mine!


Old Navy

I’ll be honest, I’ve been a little bit grumpy at Old Navy. They charge more for plus size items that are the same as straight size items, and it just doesn’t feel great and it doesn’t seem like they’re changing that any time soon. However, they continue to make great looking basics at reasonable prices and I just can’t quit them!!! Almost everything is under $50 and if you catch a sale you can get things even cheaper. Sizes go up to 4x/30!


A major staple store for lots of straight sized people, h&m started carrying plus sizes a few years ago and they’ve really made some great strides in their selection. My favorite thing about this store is that there is more than just casual wear, there is chic workwear and night out clothes as well. Sizes up to 3x, prices start at $10.


I haven’t had a Kmart in my town for many, many years and I occasionally forget that they’re still out there doing their thing. Let me tell you – they are definitely doing their thing! They’ve expanded their plus size offerings, and have adorable pajamas, dresses, and activewear for babes up to size 26. Their prices can’t be beat, starting around $10. 

I have done a Youtube review of on my channel before, and I was blown away by some of the pieces I was able to get for a fraction of what they retail for. This online consignment store sells tons of plus size clothing at deep discounts and offers a selection that is a plus size thrifters dream! Sizes up to 38, prices starting around just $2!!! Shopping tip: there is not a plus size section, the easiest way to shop is to filter items by size!!!


Boohoo makes super trendy and cute clothes up to a size 20. I’m going to be honest, though and say that I frequently shop with them because they always have great “oversized” stuff that fits my size 26 frame perfectly (check out this post and this post to see their pieces on me). I love their tees and their flowy dresses! Almost all items on the site are under $50.

Forever 21

We all know I have some feelings about Forever21. I put them aside for their wildly affordable fashions. Cause god damn their styles are too cute to pass up! Sizes up to 3x. Prices start at around $10, and they’re still my fave cheap fast fashion place!

Charlotte Russe

Remember that store you used to shop in at the mall? It’s back and carrying some cute plus size clothes! They are constantly having sales, and very often their items are well below $20 a piece.


I live for Amazon clothes. It can be daunting to try and find exactly what you want on there some times, so I always recommend people use it as a price checker for brands that would generally be carried in department stores. My favorite T-shirts come from Amazon (up to 5x), and you seriously cannot beat Amazon’s return policies. If you aren’t checking out the plus size section on Amazon you’re missing out.


A few more places for babes on a budget to check out include:

Walmart | Moddeals | Azazie ($35 bridesmaid dresses up to size 30!!!!)

I hope you all found something you like for the first portion of our 100 Plus Size Clothing Stores series! I’m so excited to share more with you every Wednesday! Until then, happy shopping budget babes!!!! Last updated: 12/27/17

    Hey! I didn’t know about these (except Rainbow, which has shops all over Brooklyn). I do look forward to anything you find in the generous 3x range, or the 4/5x range, or that’s not junior plus-ish. I’m window shopping now like a wildwoman. Thanks, girl! <3

      I’m going to have a big (hopefully 20 stores) post for sizes that aren’t frequently catered to (above 3x). But of course, a lot of those larger sized stores don’t fit into the “budget friendly” area. UGH!!! But I promise I’m scouring EVERYWHERE to find AWESOME options above a size 24!!!!!! Thanks Katy <3

    Hey!!! Love this list!! I didn’t know anything about Rainbow shops until watching your videos 🙂 I’m not sure if you’re familiar with their products, but Rue 21 DOES have a plus size section & their clothes are really similar to Rainbow shops. I LOVE their clothes. In fact, most of my closet is from them & 599fashion! Check em out 🙂 PS. You inspire me & every video I watch, I learn to love myself a little more. I adore you <3

    Hi, I’m 60 and need sizes in 3X or 22-24. I’m not interested in teen looks or 20’s/clubber styles, just comfortable everyday looks for going to dinner with a friend, to church, a book reading, running some errands, etc. I love maxi length skirts and dresses. I only seldom wear jeans now. Which stores/sites would you recommend for someone in my situation. Thanks!

    Ok so I have an extremely awkward body shape I have virtually no boobs but my band size is really big and so are my thighs but I can’t find a dress type that looks good I’m a size 22-24 any suggestions?

    • fatgirlflow
      April 27, 2016 at 10:47 am

      Have you tried “swing” dresses?!?!? I think you’d be into them!!! so the goal would be to find something that’s in the A-line style (to accommodate your thighs), but that has no seam at the waist so that your upper half isn’t oddly split in half. Something like this: – or that shape would probably work well! There are lots of dresses like that on that site if you wanna check ’em out! I am a 24/26 and I wear a 3x there but they carry 4x in some styles as well <3

    Holy crap thank you. I am plus-sized AND tall (2X, 6’0) and that cancels out 90% of the plus size stores that exist unfortunately, at least for bottoms. I just bought five tops from A’GACI and am so super excited to see the quality and try them on – especially for forever 21 prices. Now if only I could find bottoms for the same prices that came in long lengths! Thanks lady!

      • Elizabeth S
        June 3, 2016 at 6:51 pm

        Such a bummer! The tops are freaking adorable, but at least 2 sizes too small. Sizing is way off, or my thinking is? Either way – I’m making the effort to find a store in person so I can figure out what size I am. I’m normally a 2X in most everything, if not a 1X, but I’m thinking I might even need a 4X for this brand. Insane!

        I love that moon child shirt since my astrological sign is cancer and we’re moon babies. I like your site. I’m currently a 18 but I have hips breasts and a booty that’s more like a 20. All clothing lines in my opinion and by doing some researching either up size or downsize depending on their clientele. Say you pick up a 20 Jean try them on and they are too big so you go down to an 18 and they are loose so you feel great right?…next store the 22 doesn’t even fit…makes ya feel like crap. Just remember that when shopping…pick what fits well and not look too hard at the size.

    Hello my name is Danielle and i am a big woman size 2-3x i have not been able to find clothes that look right on me at all . i am 4 ’11 296 lbs and i dress like a bum. I love fashion but i have never shopped for myself ever. so i do not know how to shop or what to look for. I am a single mother looking to find herself. i have no one to talk to because the people around are too ignorant and abrasive to talk to . I love who i am but i know i have a ways before i lose the weight i need to for my health. but i would like to walk down the street and have someone say that i am beautiful or be able to take a picture. I dont know what to do. Do you have any suggestions.

    • fatgirlflow
      August 1, 2016 at 11:28 am

      Hi babe! I suggest starting a pinterest board and searching “plus size fashion” and finding some outfits you love, then re-creating them on yourself. They will not look exactly the same as they do on other people and that is FANTASTIC! Because you are YOU and once you try a few outfits you think you like you’ll start to know your style a little better and what you want to put in your closet <3

      • Kristy
        October 9, 2016 at 11:42 pm

        Have you tried Zulilly online? You have to watch the size guide and they don’t do returns only with a few exceptions BUT if you follow that guide they come to you in the size you needed. I think you need to work on your confidence cuz like the saying goes you gotta love yourself 1st. Get some great shape wear that isn’t restrictive…and some black leggings with boots or booties and a cute tunic (not your grandmas “tunic” lol) . Do your hair and makeup. Take some selfies and compare those made up you photos to the “bum” you photos.

Then when I first d something it’s way to expensive because they charge higher prices for big women clothes, I wear an 18- 20 in pants and I love the tops to hide my stomach so I buy them big. I would love to be able to find a store for everything I need instead of walking in and getting looked at and starred at like some kind of freak in a side show. So now I try shopping on line.

    I remember lane Bryant before it changed over to a younger look for clothes. My mom had a hard time seeing clothes in a style that looked like skinny clothes. All of her life she had been told by the industry that she had to dress differently just because of her size. Also the style of clothing was always 5-10 years behind the skinny styles. This was also the time we found a junior store called Deb. They had clothes for me, and I was so happy to have “normal” looking clothes.
    I’m actually very grateful to you for showing me positive and honest ways clothes fit on our bodies. (Your body is actually more like my mom’s, but when you share something beautiful I still consider it) thank you!

    I’ve been looking for hours & hours to buy myself an outfit & I’m in tears. I must be the biggest outcast on Earth! I know I’ve seen women bigger than me & they’re not naked! Where do they go? I have always been large. Wore a 2x most of my life. Then I had a back injury & gained… 3-4x, then I quit smoking gained I don’t know how much. My scale goes to 500, but reads ERROR when I get on it! I have one shirt that fits me & it’s wearing out. I don’t even know what size I am, but 5x is too small, I’ve bought a ton because apparently that’s the biggest human on Earth! I have a 54″ bust & a 64″ waist.

    Hey, thanks for making this list!! I’m a plus size teen with biiiig hips but a small waist so finding pants that actually fit me is so hard, so I kind of only have two school pants and two jeans haha. It’s especially hard since I live in a small town on a very low income, so it’s like I either pay 100$+ for jeans at a plus size store, or just go to walmart and find whatever fits me haha. I’m hoping with the new school year I can get some fab new pieces and really show my style and wear the things I want to wear without my size getting in the way. Have you ever tried Rose Wholesale? I saw some nice cheap pants on there but not sure how good their service is. Also I just want to say you’re a major inspiration, and you’re very beautiful! <3 Sorry for the long message but I hope you have a great day and keep on rockin'!

They make cute “jeggings” you can pair with tucked in boots and tops from trust me…you’ll find things you’ll love and have a wonderful freeing sense of confidence for the school year.

    I went on rainbow and checked the measurements. They seem awfully small but I know I’ve bought from them before. Makes me a little Leary. I’m usually between a 1x and a 2x.
    Measure ch-49

    Ps I’m in Canada shipping sucks. And if it doesn’t I usually get nailed for duty so I look for low prices and great sales.

    I just discovered your page here today so I don’t know if you have listed it in another post but Cato is another great place to get plus size clothes, my mother and I love that place.. That’s where we would get all our clothes but I’m in Maine now and the stores don’t come up this far yet, thankfully their selling on their website finally. They go up to I think a 30 and have really good prices.

    I have a hard time finding black dress jeans. I need 26W wide legs. I was buying them at wemans within. They fit great not tight not to baggy. Just the way I like them fitting. Well saddly I tried to order them they no longer carry them. This is what happens to me every time I find a pair I find good fit. I need a new pair by October 8th yes this weekend I’m never gonna make it.

    Just came across your site – lots of great info! Torrid is pretty much my favorite plus size store and I’ve gotten some great deals by waiting until they have stuff go on 50% off clearance. Got a very cute grey moto jacket for about $35 last week just before the Black Friday sales! Once you rack up enough purchases to qualify for unlimited free shipping, buying online is a great option as well.

    I need help i am a bigger lady and i fit 5xl but most of my stuff is super stretchy. I recently bought a dress off of the website and it got here and is not what we thought it would fit like it was completely see through and they said it was a v neck and what it really was was a complete plunge in the front and back. They will not give me my money back as it was on clearance. All i am looking for is a nice dress that would be appropriate for a maid of honor dress that is black and goes to the floor. This makes me sad that there are woman out there in the same boat as i am when trying to find nice dresser clothing for special occasions.

    Hi! GREAT post!!! Could you help me a tiny bit? I don’t know if I’m a 3X or 4X. I usually wear a 26 or 28, and I do not like tight clothes. What do you think?

    Thank you for the superb advice. I’d not known about most of these stores!

    Wow, I hadn’t heard of a lot of these – thank you so much for sharing! I live somewhere with very little in-person plus size retailers other than Walmart, Old Navy, and Target so I am always excited to hear about new-to-me online stores.

    I just read that HuffPo article you contributed to, and I wanted to thank you for that, as well. As a lifelong fat girl it has been so, so important to me to see and hear the experiences of women like me. I adored your gorgeous photo (and I also love – which I see in this post as well – hearing about your mother’s supportiveness). Thank you <3
