Supersize Clothing

Put Away the Caftans!

Caftans can come in lovely patterns and designs; unfortunately they also come with a lot of stigma and stereotypes. Caftans (not to be confused with the tops in the UK) are meant for one thing... lounging around the house or pool.

Most plus size department and specialty stores will stop at 3X for their clothing offerings. This leaves anyone larger than that at a disadvantage clothes wise.

It is hard to go out for a walk or otherwise participate in society when all you can find in your size is a pretty tent. Thank goodness for the Internet!

This lens provides a listing of super-size (for lack of a better term) clothing for women.

If you know of a great shop please contact me through the link to the right and I will check it out.

eShakti Dress

eShakti Dress


Up to 6x

eShakti has an assortment of tops, skirts, and dresses available in sizes xs to 6x. They release new styles and fabrics every season.

Each design can be purchased as is in your size or it can be personally customized. For example the dress at right can be ordered with a longer skirt length and many others can have both the sleeves and length adjusted.

The clothing is well made and quite affordable. Dresses range in price from $60 to $100, tops range in price from $30 to $50 and skirts range in price from $40 to $60. The added customization I mentioned is only $7.50

I love that they make use of amazing plus size models and guest models who actually have some meat on them.

@biggirlfinest13: I'm not sure what size you are but Torrid tends to deal to a younger audience. Although I wouldn't say what is above is "grandma lookish". It's all in how you wear and accessorize it. I will agree though, it is hard to find nice budget wise "super size" clothing which is unfortunate. Good luck!

biggirlfinest13 on January 17, 2014:

this was a little help... im more looking for places that has larger sizes in pants or jeans that doessnt look so grandma lookish and that wont cost an arm and a leg im only 29 and need to look kute lol if anyone has any websites that is not on this site plz email me

Jhale Moreno on May 08, 2013:

This is a great list, I will definitely refer to it in the future if the need arises.

Moe Wood (author) from Eastern Ontario on April 17, 2013:

@anonymous: Thanks for popping by Margaret, I hope you find a new store to love. I find Pennington's can be hit and miss over the years. Last year there was not an awful lot I loved but this year I am finding more. The best thing is having more than one store for an option. Happy shopping!

anonymous on April 17, 2013:

I usually shop at Pennington's which is less than satisfactory. I'm glad to see this line up of Plus size clothing and will try some of the stores.

jayavi on March 18, 2013:

Great lens, but you knew that :) Just wanted to remind you that this is featured on the Women and Girls Shopping Headquarters:

It's now transformed into a lensography and I would love it if you could feature it here, or lensroll it or something.
