The Big List of Plus-Size Clothing – H is for Happy
I first heard about H&M when my niece started playing The Sims. At some point, The Sims game came out with an expansion pack for H&M clothing. That got me curious. It wasn’t until last year that I walked into my first H&M store in Ashville, NC. The clothes were super cute. I walked around and looked at the sizes. With each step, I had that sinking feeling that most of us plus-size women feel when we walked into a store with cute clothes, money in our pockets and not a size that fits us in sight. I eventually did find the plus size corner. There were about 4 or 5 items hanging rather sadly on the rack. By the time I found the corner, I was so disheartened that I didn’t bother trying anything on. Right now, the plus size line at H&M is mostly basics in sizes 14 – 28. Price ranges from $20 – $50. Here’s to hoping that they expand their plus size line.
Hackwith Design House is based in Minnesota. Much of their clothing is made to order, so consider timing to make the garment a part of the order. They launch a new limited-edition item on Mondays, which carries about 25 of each design. Each item is rather pricey (from $150 – $370), but there are some rather unique designs. They carry sizes 14 – 28.
Hannah Carolina Couture is a company that will incorporate your ideas into their designs. They do have some of their own designs for sale. Prices from $60 – $84. Their size chart includes sizes 14 – 24.
Happy Size makes plus size clothing for men and women. Currently, the site is down. I will provide information when the size comes back online.
Hamrick’s is a brick and mortar store found in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee. This is a discount store that’s been in business for about 60 years. Name brands carried by Hamrick’s are Ruby Road, Sag Harbor, Alfred Dunner, Koret, Southern Lady and others. Hamrick’s is a good deal for seniors, on Tuesdays, they offer an additional 10% off their discounted prices.
Harper Greer is located in Uptown Oakland. Clothing is for more mature taste. They carry sizes 14 – 24. Prices range from $36 – $425.
HauteLook is part of the Nordstrom family. It’s a unique site that offers “limited-time flash sales” at prices that can be up to 75% off store prices. New sales are offered daily, starting at 8am (pacific time). Membership is free.
I haven’t used Etsy, but I am glad that there is an online resource available so that if there is a need for something custom-made, there is a place where that can happen. I heard about Heart My Closet from another online blogger, which is why I decided to add it to the list. This blogger was thrilled with how the garment turned out. I would recommend on this one that you do your own research before choosing to go with this option. If you do chose to, it’s a great way to have a statement item of clothing in your closet.
Hello Holiday caries sizes 14 – 26. Prices range from $50 – $100. They consider themselves to carry basis. I disagree with them a bit as I see this site as a bit of basics with a nice twist. For example, they have a pink skater skirt, but it’s fuzzy. I also like the sweater dress with the fuzzy balls down the sleeve. At any rate, if you like unique, this might just be the place for you.
Her Room carries a large selection of lingerie. Bra sizes range from 28 – 58 band size, AA – N cup. When I added my bra size (44DDD), the site came back with results in Goddess, Vanity Fair, Playtex, Lilyette, Wacoal, Bali, Just My Size, Curvation, Curvy Couture, Carnival, Nightlift, Creme Bralee, QT, Natori, Curvy Kate and three different nursing bras. Prices run from about $20 – $70.
This is one of my favorite sites. Hips and Curves is a magical site where I can finally let my fantasies run free. It’s like finally someone understands that as a plus-size woman, I want nice lingerie and sleepwear. That there are times when I need a sexy as hell costume! The best thing about Hips and Curves is that there pieces are quality. If you’ve never been to Hips and Curves, go immediately and drool. They carry items up to size 6X.
Holy Clothing states that they are “an Ethically-Made clothing company focusing on boho & gypsy fashions, established in 2000 in Delhi, India.” They carry clothing up to size 5X. Prices range from $30 – $100.
Hot Topic is an alternative site/store that carries clothing for “naughty” and “nice” sides of your personality. They carry clothing from 14 to 28. Prices range from $50 – $100.
