The simple reality is (as the head of Abercrombie & Fitch said a few years back) a lot of "fashion" labels don't want larger people wearing their clothes. They might not put it as bluntly as that but it's an unspoken truth.
And I am not agreeing with it - it was a shock when I read the comments originally and many companies quietly agreed.

Another thing, do you think it's fair if brands that make both regular and plus size clothing charge more for plus size?
I see this quite often.

"Jessica a former store manager with a leading women’s label, says that while people might say they want larger sizes, they usually end up on the sales rack. “For us it didn’t make sense to stock more size 14s or make a size 16 – they weren’t in demand,” she explains.But she admits the poor interest was more due to design than demand, as clothes designed for small-framed women rarely flatter curvier shapes as well. From the size 8-10 “block” that’s created, a mathematical algorithm is used to decide measurements for sizes 6-14. At no point does anyone check whether a size 14 actually looks good on a real woman. “The crotch-to-waist measurement is totally different from a 10 to a 16,” says Bonner. “Small sizes don’t allow for tummies.”
“It’s a double-edged sword: larger sizes don’t sell because the structure and cut of the garment are lacking,” says Jessica. “But businesses won’t create patterns that accommodate this as the sales figures tell them demand isn’t there.”

I'm at the opposite end and no where much stocks size 6 anymore, if you can find them the pants are up around your ankles cause if you're thin your short. I think it's hard no matter what size you are, there seems to be little or no consistency of sizes and availability.
