As a true size 22 and apple shape, it would be difficult finding stores that catered to size above passed a size 20. Thankfully, fashion is more open-minded compared to when I was growing up and more stores cater to larger sizes. Above a 3x? Don’t worry! We got you covered with 10 retailers who cater to extended sizes. And just right in time for the fall season.
When it comes to fashion, I like what I like. I am not obsessed with what is trending or brand names. I have a style that is all my own. When I dress, my main focus is on how it makes me feel. In the words of Ashley Nicole Black, “I have to empower myself.” With that being said, take a peek at the retailers who know fashion who cater to sizes above a 3X.

As plus size retailers and brands launch, we are doing our best to challenge them to go beyond the traditional 3x! We ask, show, and share how there is a market for this consumer and how it is only more lucrative if they do! At the end of the day, who really decided that plus sizes stop at a 24? Know that if we have a brand’s ear, we are sharing our feedback, thoughts, and suggestions to make it work for all of us.
Did we get your favorites? We want to know!
