The Big List of Plus-Size Shopping – G Edition
Hey Y’all! It’s a short list this week, but some real goodies (no pun intended).
To me, GS Love is an unsung hero. If you are on a budget (and who isn’t), then you need some G Stage Love in your life. GS is trendy and very affordable clothing. I first found out about the store from a conversation I overall my youngest daughter having with her college friends. One of the girls was plus-sized and had a great sense of style. The other girls were drilling her about where she got her clothes. She laughed and said, “If I tell you, then you’ll know how much I don’t pay for my stuff.” Later on, she told me that she loved this site because it was the one place she knew she could afford to buy clothes in her size. For the last couple of years, I’ve gotten a few things from GS. The site does cater to the younger, hipper crowd, so most things are intended to fit a little snug. Check out the Off Shoulder Crop Top & Flared Pants Set! Sizes are 1X – 3X with sizes roughly correlating as follows 1X/US14-16; 2X/US18-20; and 3X/US22-24. Prices range up to about $45 with most items in the under $20 range.
As the name suggests, this site is dedicate mostly to the flapper dress. All the designs are unique and elegant. Sizes are up to US26. Most expensive dress converted from pounds to dollars is around $220.
Band sizes 34-58. Cup sizes A-K. Bras are in basic colors with the following features: full coverage, no wire, back hook, front hook, wire, molded cups, sport, camisole, minimizers, strapless, corselette, long line, and shapewear. Prices range up to about $67
Bras available up to J cup with the following brands: Wacoal, Fantasie, Greya, elomi and b.tempt’d. View the collection at this site. Press find a store and the site will healp you find a location near you for the item.
For a long time, Goody’s was a staple in my area. A good many of my clothes came from there when I was younger and almost everyone I knew shopped there. It was surprising to many of us when the store went bankrupt and a ton of them closed. Slowly it seems that the name is making its way back. There are still none in my area, but there are a few in Georgia that I’m aware of. Online, it is listed as Stage. Prices range from under $10 – $150. Sizes available in Regular line: L/US12-14, XL/US16 and in the Plus line: XL/US14-16, 2X/US18-20, 3X/US22
Gwynnie bee is a rental service. Right now there is a 30 day trail. If you stay on past the 30 days, then the pricing is as follows: 1 item (out at a time) $49/month; 2 items (out at a time) $69/month, 3 items (out at a time) $95/month. Sizes range from US10 – US32. I haven’t tried the services. There are some mixed reviews on using it. The main pro I hear is that you get to try out a lot of things that you might not otherwise try. Main con I’ve heard is that you have to set up a closet and place things in. You don’t always get what you think is next, so it makes planning an outfit for certain occasions very difficult.
If you’ve had experience with Gwynnie Bee, I’d love to hear about it.
That’s all of them for now. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
