Cheap plus size clothing – how often do we have to compromise when choosing our perfect plus size attire? Compromise on style or compromise on price. Wouldn’t you wish that you could somehow achieve both? Well, I know places where you can get amazing plus size clothing at bargain prices
, but let’s talk about you first. Do you feel that being plus size makes you worth less than all those skinny bikini girls? Yes, I used to feel this way. I used to wear baggy trousers, thinking that they would conceal my curves. I was ashamed of them. And guess what? Now I can and I am proud of them! I love my curves. They are me. They define me. Now I’m proud to wear sexy dresses, even short ones! Yes, short skirts rock! I learned to accept myself, but it wasn’t easy. Especially my teenage years were difficult. Really difficult. I was fuller than most girls in my year and I always had bigger breasts. I was ashamed of them. When I first found out that such a thing as a minimizer bra exists I was over the moon! So I was there squeezing my poor breasts in those uncomfortable bras. At university I was often broke, so finding cheap plus size clothing
was a must. It wasn’t easy back then. In the 90’s fashion was reserved for skinny girls. But these times have changed!
Hunting Down The Bargains: Plus Size Clothing UK Cheap
As I said finding plus size clothing UK cheap was a nightmare when I was at university. I had to rely on second-hand, charity shops and supermarket brands. Not to mention plus size swimsuits
! Finding a bikini was almost impossible! So, the UK was not a great place for a plus size girl back then. It all has changed with the internet. I hardly ever go shopping on the high street any more. I can get plus size clothing UK cheap delivered to my doorstep from anywhere in the world! I especially like the American brands, I have a feeling that this market is much more mature over there, then it is in the UK. But I can’t complain about my country either, there are more and more plus size stores opening here. And mainstream brands are starting to offer plus size lines as well. It really makes me happy! With all this choice available today it really hard to find the most reliable store. You know, I like to know a brand well, when I’m ordering online. This is because the sizes do vary, especially when you think about UK versus US sizes. Really, sometimes you order a size 16 and you get 18 and vice versa. I don’t understand why they don’t make the sizing more uniform.

Now, that spring is just round the corner, it is time to refresh your wardrobe! I have been piling layers of cheap plus size womens clothing all those months, and soon it will be time to shed them! I can’t wait! The first thing to go will be my big, winter jackets. Don’t get me wrong, I love my coats and jackets, but I feel it is time for them to have a rest in the wardrobe until late autumn. I think I’ll start with a gilet on top of a fluffy jumper or turtleneck this spring. Btw, I saw this plus size turtleneck dress
and I think it looks absolutely fabulous! The author of the blog assures that it goes well with pretty much anything and that it is a great basic piece. I love the fedora she is wearing and the quilted bag. She also mentions that wine colour is always en vogue, so it’s pretty safe to buy accessories in this colour. And here she also adds a faux fur vest, but, as she says you can easily swap it for another jacket. Yes, the black dress really does go well with anything, I have a similar piece in my wardrobe and have worn it on many occasions, from casual to formal. Brilliant look! So, let’s look at some more great cheap plus size womens clothing arrangements.

Wrapping Up The Subject Of Cheap Plus Size Clothing
As you can see, cheap plus size clothes doesn’t have to look and feel cheap at all! We are talking here about the price we actually paid for the pieces, those trendy dresses could have cost a fortune before they went on sale. I’m all about smart shopping. I don’t often buy clothes from the newest collections, because they are too pricey. I love quality and I’m patient, that’s why I always visit the clearance sections
of online stores first. I know it is tempting to look at the newest collections, and I do it eventually to see what’s going to be trendy this season. But, trust me, the trends don’t actually change that quickly. Especially when looking at plus size clothing, you will notice reoccurring trends. Perhaps it’s bad for the style that that our fashion doesn’t change as quickly as skinny fashion, bit on the other hand – it’s better for our wallets! I don’t know how about you, but I love my plus size style, I love shopping for cheap plus size clothing, and I love showing off my curves in new outfits for which I didn’t pay a fortune.
