MY FAVORITE CURVE friendly shopping
Here are four of my personal favorite stores and/or websites. The options listed below work well for my 5’5 size 12 body frame. Each of these places are true to a US size 12 and fit perfectly. When shopping please be sure to order according to your desired fit and remember that not all fabrics are not made alike (aka not every fabric stretches). HAPPY SHOPPING!
ASOS Curve section is perfect for girls blessed with a little more hip and dip. I love that the options are on trend with high fashion and offer you a way to estimate your size if you’re unsure. Models they use also represent real curvy women in the world and give a realistic idea of how items will fit.
I love to shop here when I’m looking for something unique or if I need something for a special event. The prices are a little higher than some (fast-fashion) stores, but the quality is ultimately a higher grade.
There is a Nordstrom Rack here in Birmingham, AL and it has never failed me. This store does a great job of having a mixture of high end and independent brands. I’ve purchased brands such as Alice+Olivia, TOPSHOP, Joié, ELIZABETH & JAMES, STEVE MADDEN, NIKE and many more from this retailer all at a very discounted price.
This store is my go-to spot here is Birmingham when I don’t have time to do online shopping.
WHO WHAT WEAR - TARGET
WHO WHAT WEAR is one of the best things that’s ever happened to Target. Their options are trendy, stylish and affordable. I’ve gotten everything from a dress to wear for church on Sunday to a look for a night out with friends.
H&M has grown to be more size inclusive over the years. In reference to the product and quality they offer, they’re similar to ASOS (my personal opinion). They have great dresses for work and I can always score a cool t-shirt or sweat shirt.
