Cute Plus-Size Clothing Options, Trendy Accessories and Halftees

Alright ladies, you've been asking for months:
"Where do you find all of your cute plus-size clothing!?"
So I thought that it was high time I finally addressed this frequently asked question, in a little "Tell me More" post.
First, let me say that in NO WAY do I claim to be a fashionista, and really, up until about 2 months ago, I wasn't even sure WHAT my "good colors" were! All I knew is that I loved the way that certain things LOOKED on me and went together. Thank goodness for my sweet friend Becki from Whippy Cake who styles people for a living. She was able to carve some time out for a personal style session with me last time we got together. Best money I ever spent!!!
Whew! This girl knows her stuff! From hair and makeup, to clothing and accessories... she taught me a TON about what would looked best on ME, with my coloring and personality. She teaches the coolest style classes and if you ever have a chance to catch one, DO IT! It's worth every minute! Becki talks all about body and face shapes and then teaches you how to dress your figure so that it looks it's best, no matter how big, small, curvy, short or tall you are! LOVE HER, and SO excited that she's in town to visit for the 4th of July holiday, so I can soak up all of her beautiful energy and knowledge :)
PS. I'm even going to try and convince her, with Diet Dr. Pepper, to do a little makeup video tutorial with me, so I can share it with you guys later!

Okay, so let's get down to business...
Finding fashionable, affordable, plus size clothing is H.A.R.D! I'm not sure if all the designers in the world got together and decided that if you were over a size 12 you shouldn't be able to find cute clothes, or WHAT... (???) But it's almost nearly impossible (without doing a lot of shopping around) to find something cute, modest, modern and stylish to wear, that's over a size 14.
Even though I plan on blowing past a size 12 one day with this weight loss journey, to enter into a whole new world of $3.00 shirt racks at Gap and Forever 21 (sheesh, smaller girls get all the best sales!), right NOW, I'm still in the "plus-size" category. So below are MY top 10 picks for trendy, fun, modern plus-size clothing options, and where I find almost 100% of all of my clothes. 


While some of these stores are pricier than others, ALL of them carry really good plus size clothing styles. I've put together 3 storyboard plus-size fashion outfit ideas, so you can see how my train of thought works, when it comes to pulling together a great outfit for myself.

First though, I have to mention something that will CHANGE YOUR LIFE. Whether you are plus-size or not. Halftee's!
Yup. It's just what it sounds like. A tee-shirt that is chopped... in half!
If you've never heard of these, then you might be doing that 'one-eyebrow-raised-skeptical-face' right now, because honestly... they do look a little funny, but let me tell you why these tee's are a girls BEST FRIEND.
1. They come in all different styles, sizes and colors.
- tank halftee
- cap sleeved halftee
- boyfriend halftee
- 3/4 sleeve halftee
- long sleeved halftee
They carry sizes XS - XXL, in colors like black, red, white, brown, pink, cream, gray and navy. They even carry little girl sizes in a few styles!
2. They finally make it completely possible and modest, to wear ANY cute sleeveless tank top or low-cut shirt.
3. The halftees keep you nice and cool. No more layering with full camis and cardigans to cover up your bare arms if you don't like them showing (like me). Just a simple, breathable half shirt under your fashion tops and you're set!

You've GOT to try these out. I seriously wear them EVERYDAY... no kidding. You don't believe me? Check it out:

I have to say that my favorite style is the 3/4 sleeve Halftee, and obviously I wear a lot of white, but I also have black and gray too. (just no pictures of them) As far as sizing goes, I have been ordering an XXL (about a 2X in plus size clothing or 20-22), but I think I'm going to try a XL next time (size 16-18).
The material of these shirts are awesome! Really stretchy, but made of super soft, breathable cotton, and they wash up GREAT!
Yeah, I know... I'm a dork and pose the same way each time. (hand on hip?... check!) ha! Look, it's SUPER awkward for me to get my picture taken, when I know my body will be showing, okay? I'm not used to letting people take pictures of anything further down than my shoulders. LOL. nojudging
Now moving forward with my plus-size fashion design boards; which took FOREVER! (remind me NOT to be a fashion blogger...sheesh! There are SO MANY cute things out there, that it was hard to choose!)

Here are a few things that I keep in mind, when dressing a fuller figure:
Remember: these are just MY rules to live by; so feel free to take them or leave them

- Keep your Prints Minimal/Small/Repeating
Even if you LOVE attention, keeping prints on your clothes to a minimum will help draw attention to your pretty face, instead of larger body. If you do want to try a large print, pick something that will be figure flattering. I've noticed that bold, contrasting colors in a larger design tend to camouflage the bumps and rolls better. Much like the patterns in my pictures above.

- Make Accessories the Star of the Show
If you're like me, and don't love drawing attention to your tummy/legs/whatever is bulging that shouldn't, then keep in mind that you can pick simpler, more slimming, solid colored clothing and then use jewelry and handbags to really add personality to your overall style. That being said...


- Think Dainty
Picking accessories that are smaller/more dainty; but with special 'flair' help bring the whole look 'together' without overpowering you, or adding to any of your already "bulk".  I swear I get more compliments on my rings, earrings and necklaces than anything else I ever wear. And people will say, "You're outfit is so cute!"... but really, a lot of the time it's just plain ol' jeans/capris, with a solid shirt and SUPER cute accessories! 


Last but not least,
- Wear the Right Size!!!
I can't emphasize this enough! Just because you're bigger, it doesn't mean that your clothes should be big ON you. Actually, wearing clothing that is slightly form fitting, will help create the illusion that you have shape of SOME sort, instead of just making your body look like a round ball. And in retrospect, PLEASE do all of us other "big girls" a favor and DON'T wear clothes that you shouldn't... if you get my drift. Let's be honest, nobody wants to see booty shorts or a tiny halter top on really... anybody, but we definitely don't want to see it on someone who has a belly hanging out or double-roll-butt-cheek syndrome. It's a real thing you guys. (shiiiver)
JUST BECAUSE IT COMES IN YOUR SIZE...
DOESN'T MEAN YOU SHOULD WEAR IT.
Find out what body shape you have, and then shop for clothes that flatter your figure and that will help you to achieve a more hourglass shape. (that's what Becki taught me!)

The way you dress, whether you're big OR small is usually the FIRST impression people have of you. Take a little time and maybe risk, to pull together fun, colorful, happy, figure appropriate outfits that make you feel like the BEST you that you can be, no matter WHAT your size is.
:)
Happy Shopping!

  1. This is such a great post! We shop at a lot of the same plus size retailers. DownEast is completely new to me, and so is Halftee - I'm going to order that 3/4 sleeve Halftee pronto!

  2. Love it! Thank you for using the m word....modest. I came out of the dressing room once in a shirt I thought may be questionable and asked my hubby "Is this immodest?" The look that 2 women nearby gave me, you would think I have green skin and 3 eyes. LOL I appreciate you. :)

  3. you are ADORABLE!!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the black/white striped dress - FABULOUS! And look at how skinny you are, girrrrrrrrl! I can't wait to try those "t-shirts" too! Thanks!

  4. Thank you for this awesome post. You always look so adorable and put together. And, I am definitely going to check out those halftees because I am a white t-shirt wearing girl myself. ;)

  5. This post was great!! I'm not 'big' but I'm not small either(size 8/10) and you gave some great tips for girls who have a little bit to hide no matter what size! I

  6. "And in retrospect, PLEASE do all of us other "big girls" a favor and DON'T wear clothes that you shouldn't... if you get my drift." OMG! So true! You have no idea how many times I see someone and think..."wow, she gives big girls a bad name!" I have always thought that no matter my size (I am an 18), I needed to make sure that I tried to look my best, even if that meant I wasn't always "in style." How clothes fit a person is way more important than wearing clothes that are hip. You can make anything look contemporary as long as it fits you appropriately...whether it comes from Macy's, Lane Bryant, Target, or even WalMart. :)

  7. Such a great post! I love your black and white chevron dress and white chevron braclet, willing to share where you got them? you look amazing btw!

  8. Loved this! I definitely need to invest in some new accessories. I just can't help but feel way overdone with accessories though. I know I'm likely not, but I've always been a "rings only" kind of gal.

    Do you have any tips on knowing how much accessorizing is "too" much?

    ReplyDelete
  9. I love this post! Those half tees are brilliant! I'm currently a size 14-16 and I do not wear sleeveless shirts. You are looking fabulous girl! Hope your foot heals up real fast!! Xoxo

  10. Thanks for these tips! I also like Eloquii from the Limited and Rouche.

  11. Do those half tees ride up at all? I have a long body and hate it when things shift too much!

    1. They don't ride up. The band on the bottom helps them stay in place.

  12. I LOVE the phrase at the end that you put in orange. lol I could not agree more! While I complain to myself that there aren't a ton of great plus size clothes out there that aren't trendy or ridiculously overpriced, I do often wonder WHY some items are even made in plus size. And why some plus size girls wear them???? lol Anyhow......great post! I love the little boards you put together and seriously, you always look stylin.....even before all the weight loss. :) xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  13. Great post with great ideas. The color combos are so cool and those neat little shirts...I will be checking them out. I think a lot of the tops these days are cut too low, maybe because I don't have much to boost it up there, but those little shirts are way better than tank or sports bra.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Where is the adorable black and white dress from?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh, wow, I think I need these Halftees in every style and color! Thanks so much for sharing =)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Shelley-these are great tips and you are pretty much the cutest darn thing. I love the style you're rockin lately as it shows off your amazing body that you're rediscovering! Congrats & thanks for the tips. As these are helpful no matter what size your body is {especially the "Just because it comes in your sizes DOESN'T mean you should wear it" rule}! LOL :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. THank you Thank you Thank you!!!! I just ordered some half tees and I can't wait to get them! You are adorable and I love the black/white dress!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Well done. Being a plus size myself I can completely relate. Seems like we are being punished for not being tiny people. Good luck on your journey.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Absolutely LOVED this post Shelley!

    AND, drumroll, I've already ordered some of those half tees for myself and my two girls!

    Especially the younger one, she (wants to) wears thin strapped summer dresses ALL year, even when it's -30C outside! Silly girl. Well, now she'll be able to wear any of them all year, even at school, where straps are not allowed :)

    THANK YOU for sharing this and yourself! You ROCK!

  21. Thanks!! I LOOOOVE your style. I'm a fashion lover but definitely not the size I'd like to be. The styles you showed are ridiculously cute! I ordered my first Halftee with your code! I'm excited to actually wear the tank tops I have without feeling "arm conscious."

    ReplyDelete
  22. I am bookmarking this post!! Finally someone has addresseed where you can get cute plus sized clothing. And you're right about the sales for the smaller people. Cute and affordable clothes and then you get to the plus sizes and all they have are these ugly knits that cling to every wrong placewith horrid looking patterns. I have been plus sized going on 7 years and to be honest I have never hated myself more. Even when I was pregnant i could at least say "oh I'm carrying around a person inside me" that was my excuse now...blah. I have tried dieting. I have tried WW and nothing has worked. But thank you for this wonderful post. I'm off to go "window" shopping.

  23. I'm a big girl too! I was inspired by all of your recent weight loss progress and your honesty in the post where you were talking about your plantar fascitis, to post my own story. I finally realized I'd had too much. http://wp.me/pATqq-cz

    But that was not my point! I wanted to let you (and your other plus size readers) know that you're missing some great online places to get some really amazing pieces!! Again some of these places are pricier than others but everyone has sales, and if you're only looking for one or two things, they're not so bad:

    Forever 21+: bit.ly/tcDf4L
    ASOS Curve: bit.ly/OeGgn4
    eShatki: www.eshakti.com/
    Kiyonna: www.kiyonna.com/

    SWAK Designs: www.swakdesigns.com
    City Chic: www.citychiconline.com
    igigi: www.igigi.com/

    Plus all the major dept stores have okay plus size sections:

    Macy's: http://bit.ly/qT57wj
    JC Penny: http://jcp.is/QXFElE

    I'm definitely going to get some halftees

  27. Hi Shelley! Thanks for this great post! I too am on a weight loss journey and need some cute clothes for the new school year. I "heart" your black and white dress-where can I find it? It would be great for Back to School night! Love you girl!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Love, love, love your post! I am a plus size girl who loves cute clothes. Avenue and Cato are my go to store for up-to-date stylish wear! I love to accessorize too. My motto is "Even a big girl can look stylish with the right jewelry, shoes and bag!" Go, girl. :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Whippy Cake's fashion class ROCKS!!! She explained to stuck-in-the-80's me what EVERY shape should do... create the illusion of an hour glass figure no matter how big/small you are!

    Also, I APPLAUD and THANK YOU for stepping outside your comfort zone by showing us photos of your cute self BELOW your shoulders because that might be the boost I need to do the same. Thanks for giving me the courage to finally post about... gasp... swimsuit shopping without the "swimsuit" body O_O

  30. Thanks for sharing. I just ordered a 3/4 sleeve half tee to try out. I would have ordered more but all the XXL were sold out in almost every color and style. :(

  32. LOVE it!!!! And just a note. I have bought several dresses and tops from Kiyonna. Super cute and great quality. Pretty dresses for wedding and Christmas parties.

    And the jeans from SVOBODA are gorgeous!!!!!

  33. Thanks so much for this post!
    I have always admired your style and smiley face :)

    I was just trying to make that look work with a tee under top/dress and it wasn't working so am thrilled to find the halftees. I just placed my order and used the discount - thanks!

  34. wow. whether we find ourselves a plus size temporarily or unexpectedly longer, we certainly want to like nice and stylish. kudos to you for helping the rest of us...and you look GREAT!

  37. Well, I have a girl crush on that Becki for sure. And these are GREAT tips. I adore that my Mom always taught me that having clothes that fit is the most important thing to help you feel good about yourself. It didn't matter if I had lost weight or gained weight. She would always encourage me to get cute clothes that fit. And it's true. When she showed up last week with new jammie pants that fit my "fuller" figure. I felt 100% better. Even in pj's.

  38. Thank you for posting this! I'm currently downsizing my waistline, from an 18 to whatever I can achieve. I just want to be healthy. I had my second baby eight months ago and have been able to drop the baby weight, and then some. I feel like I keep buying new clothes, but I refuse to wear the things in the old size just because "they still fit". They don't. They're too big. Move on! And when I where the more figure hugging clothes, even with my leftover baby belly, I look hotter and get more oogles. And I'm all about accessorizing. I ((heart)) Charming Charlie!!!! I even found some amazing treasures at The Limited on clearance. Lovely!!!
    Girlfriend, you inspire me. I even redecorated my house because of you're indirect encouragement. All the best as you continue your weight loss journey. I look forward to reading more inspiring posts.

  42. So... I rarely ever comment on any of the blogs I read, but I came across your blog a few days ago and I've just got to say that you are amazing & truly an inspiration!! Also- I'm pretty sure my mind is blown with your tip about halftee's- I hate how a lot of women's summery shirts are so low cut / super short sleeved.. THANK YOU for sharing a solution to that problem!

  49. I cannot say thank you enough for this post. It's come at such a great time for me. I'm leaving for Scenty's convention in Las Vegas at the end of the month and I'm having SUCH an agonizingly hard time finding cute clothes for all of the different things I'll be doing there. In fact, I almost cried a little when I saw the coral capri's you posted above because I've been looking for something JUST like that...and at $20?! Hello!! Thank you so much for this post. My "What to Wear" board on Pinterest is probably my largest board. I love to see how others put clothes together. Again, thank you so much for this. Last year, I started an amazing program called Dressing Your Truth and it radically changed how I dress and view myself - but as a plus size girl, sometimes it's super hard to find that cute stuff that truly honors me and my personality. Totally getcha on the $3 tees at Gap. But, I do want to say - go try one on. Seriously. I think we may be the same size-ish (just guessing from some of the sizes you've mentioned ordering) and I just bought three XL tees from Gap for $4 each. They even carry size 20 jeans. I'd give a look. You never know!

    Thanks again girlie!!

  63. Hi Shelly,

    My husband was in the Young Single Adult bishopric when Karley and Mike were single and attending there. I think I might have even met you at their wedding...anyway...I have been following your blog for a couple of years. I love all your ideas and just you in general.

    I get excited when, I see on my blog, that you have posted again. I enjoy all your decorating ideas and hearing about all your adventures.

    I ordered some of the half tees today. I think I will really like them. Thanks for the discount code! I have been on steroids for about two years now, for some health problems and have really ballooned out. I am inspired by your efforts in weight loss. You are looking so good, but are just as beautiful in any size.

    This is such a random comment...I know! I just felt like writing you. Hope you have a great holiday! We are celebrating a new grand baby...#37!

This was a good post - thanks for all the great tips - I love Torrid and Old Navy for all my plus size clothes - oh and Dress Barn is good too - I also found some great items at Marshalls/TJ Maxx - and you'd never believe it Family Dollar - REALLY cute trendy dresses! I am definitely going to shop on Half Tees.

    Thanks!

  69. Thank you for the shopping tips! Could you please tell us all where you get your cute accessories? The fun thing about a necklace or a earrings is that they fit, even when you lose weight! Knowing this gives me a good excuse to invest in fun jewelry. I would love to know your accessory hot spots!

  70. Thanks to your glowing review, I immediately bought 2 halftees. They arrived today, and I realized I was going out to dinner therefore- what a great chance to try one out!! I pulled out a tank top that I love, but for modesty reasons I always wear a cardigan over it. Well, I'm in TN and it's HOT here. So out comes my halftee. I have to say, I LOOOOVe it!! Thanks for the recommendation! I never knew such a thing existed!

  77. I skipped through all of the comments. It's late and I am tired. But inspired by this post! Does your friend Becki only service in a specific area? I am interested in hiring someone to help me with this because sometimes I feel so lost when I am shopping. I live in the Atlanta area. If she cannot service this area, does she know someone who can?

  79. Ok this might be a silly question but I have to ask.
    I love dresses/skirts but I do not like the feeling of my legs rubbing together.
    Is there something I can wear underneath, like a thin layered short, that will help with that?
    Thanks for the great post!
