On the Plus Side

While some plus-size retailers are struggling and have announced bankruptcy filings, others are expanding their offerings. Old Navy recently announced an overhaul of its stores that will include more plus-size options for the same price as other sizes. There are also plenty of places online where you can search, compare, and shop clothing lines that have more inclusive sizing. Here are some favorites for budget-minded shoppers.


Prices, shipping offers, and availability are subject to change.
