    Default Plus size clothes

    I'm having a really hard time with clothing lately. I've gained so much weight and I can't shake it so finding clothes I feel comfortable in is really hard.
    Does anyone have suggestions for places to buy cheap summer clothes in plus sizes that look nice. I HATE my stomach so really struggle with anything that makes it obvious how big it is.
    I'm thinking things like shirts, skirts, dresses but would need shirts as well. I can't afford to spend a lot but need just a few items
    Thank you to anyone who reads this. Such a stupid question

    I love city chic and only really ever buy from there when they have a sale on. I find their clothing fits me the best. There are plenty of groups online that do the buy/swap/sell with their clothing.

    Otherwise CC always have a sale of items and once boxing day comes, I can usually see lots of bargains from them

    I hear ya! I am very tall with big boobs and a tummy. I love citychic but only buy their stuff onsale. I can't justify $99 or $130 on a dress these days. They are very good quality clothes though. I always have to try everything on as I hate some of their 'clingy' fabrics that some dresses and tops are made of. Clothes don't shrink either after washing. I also love that I fit in a size S and XS when I'm usually 16..my little self esteem booster lol
    I also like Katie's jeans that pull up and their prints in some of their blouses and maxis but have found their sizing is small so I go up to 18-20 and then often they shrink after I wash them. That just makes me sad. Again, I only buy on special racks. I have also recently found blouses in Kmart that fit and are not clingy but again I have to watch the fabric type and I am a 20 there!!!!

    In December last year they had good sales all the way up to Christmas and then Boxing Day is the best, usually in there for at least a week. If you're in the city there is some clearance outlets around too. I also like crossroads but there hasn't been as much lately I don't think. I have got a few really nice skirts from there though and then wear with a plain singlet or t shirt from Kmart.

    I used to love crossroads but not so much these days. They have gotten really expensive too I have found.

    Agreed and the quality doesn't match the expensive price. An extra $20 on their $59 maxis and I can get wayyy better quality at citychic. It's a shame I used to love shopping there 5 years ago when they had the same quality but cheaper prices.

    I would rather pay full price CC than even the cheapest of cheap at CR.

    I have my eye on a skirt and top in CC currently. Hoping they come down in price leading up to Christmas.
