For years, big mall department stores have often forgotten about extended sizes. But the internet is completely changing how to shop for plus size clothes. More boutique designers are creating some of the hottest styles for plus sizes and you can get it all directly here online!
Recently, curvy women have been using clothing boxes to get exactly the style and sizes they want. Even celebrities like Sofia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon are extending the sizes that their clothing lines offer, following the trend of online clothing boxes.

The Sofia Jeans
Sofia Vergara established her line of affordable jeans in a partnership with Walmart in February 2019. Her brand, Sofia Jeans by Sofia Vergara, launched on February 4. From the very beginning, she was committed to offering affordable clothing to everyone, regardless of size.
Her clothing ranges in size from zero to 20, and each piece costs less than $40 each. There are also more than 100 items in the initial release, including denim jackets, t-shirts, and tops. Early reports are already praising both the quality and fit of the jeans. With a fantastic price point, it’s totally worth checking out online now.
Vergara’s womenswear line is unique as the marketing material never referred to the higher end of sizes as “plus-sizes.” Instead, it labeled the entire line “size-inclusive.” The promotional photos featured Vergara alongside a bevy of other curvy women, flaunting their assets in a variety of the brand’s styles. It’s refreshing to see a line cater to all women, regardless of size, without ostentatiously patting themselves on the back.
Reese’s Southern Style
Reese Witherspoon’s much-anticipated brand, Draper James, launched online in May 2015. Their brand identity is distinctly Southern as they’ve taken traditional fabrics like gingham, chambray, and sailor stripes and used them to create elegant silhouettes that appeal to modern women.
Just recently, the creative minds behind Draper James announced that the new Spring 2019 collection would be their first to cater to “extended sizes.” Their earlier lines only went up to size 14, but their new collection extends the sizes they offer up to size 24, or XXXL!
Try a Plus Size Clothing Box
Another way that the retail landscape is changing is through clothing subscription boxes. There are dozens of options out there today, but they operate on two different models.
There’s the rental model, where you pay a fee to essentially rent clothing or accessories. Services like Le Tote and Gwynnie Bee use this model, and they’re great for people who want to change up their style without committing to purchasing new clothing.
The other model is where subscribers pay a small fee, and a trained stylist picks out a selection of clothing. These pieces are then shipped to the customer, who can try them on at home and see how they work with their existing wardrobe. Services like Stitch Fix, Dia & Co, and Trunk Club are some of the most popular choices for these style of subscription boxes.
There are a lot of advantages to using a style subscription service. The styling fee — which ranges in price from $9 to $25 — is affordable and goes towards any items that you choose to keep. You also get access to a stylist who takes your answers and uses them to pick out clothing and accessories that you may have never selected on your own.
Many of these clothing subscription services make it extremely easy for customers to schedule boxes on a monthly or seasonal basis. Their goal is to keep a consistent clientele, so they know exactly how many items to order. While it may be tempting to go all-in right from the beginning, it’s best to start with a trial.
