Clothing stores used to really not care about being inclusive to plus-size women, but times have changed. It used to be so hard to find cute and trendy pieces as a plus-size woman. You would have to go to the back of the store in a random corner and even then they would only have one or two pieces. Those pieces usually were stretchy material in neutral colors. There were no bright colors or any fun prints…Just random, boring pieces.
Now with plus-size women taking the fashion world by storm and appearing in high fashion clothing brands, like Versace, much has changed with the type of plus-size clothing sold. Now there are various brands that offer trendy and chic plus-size pieces. Whether you are looking for high-end fashion pieces or some affordable options these clothing stores offer cute and trendy pieces for plus-size women.

You can find a Target practically anywhere in the country. They have two plus size sections. One for the young folks and another for the grown folks. I love Target’s plus size section because it’s not separated from the regular sized clothes. Whatever clothes you see in the junior section goes from a small to a 3x. You don’t have to go to a separate section. If you see something cute, you can find it in a 1x-3x. If that’s not inclusive, I don’t know what is.
