How to shop for Plus size clothing in India! The Ultimate Guide
Shopping in India for plus size clothing used to be a nightmare. The only way to get some decent styles were either on a trip abroad or you had to get them stitched and the tailors just knew how to spoil them. Hi guys, I am Poonam from Fat and fab, and welcome to my Plus size series.
Plus size Where to shop
Since the last few years, the scenario has started to change. I am going to tell you about the stores and online platforms in India which house some really good plus size styles. I am also going to share with you some international websites that ship to India and are my personal favorites.
What are the online plus size Clothing brands in India
Shein and Myntra are my go-to platforms. Though shein is banned in India now. Myntra still hosts so many brands that go up to XXL. My current favorite is Sassafras on Myntra They also house some international brands that do bigger sizes. If you are looking for only western wear some brands like Lastinch, Revolutionplussize, Stalkbuylove, and Faballey do a variety of good styles. If you are looking for Indian wear, Pluss , Xxllent , oxolloxo , and Amydus house Indian and western wear for men women. Afamado, Eshakti, and Lurap are known for their customizations. Be it sleeve length or dress length or neck, they will take care of it.
What are plus size stores open in India
When it comes to stores, the first name that pops in our heads is ALL the plus size store. They house a mix of Indian and western wear. Westside also houses three brands Gia, Sassy Soda, and L.O.V. that do plus size western wear. Nexus is a recent addition by Lifestyle that also does western wear. Similarly, Pantaloons launched Alto Moda that does western and Indian wear. Some other brands like Marks Spencer do up to size UK22 Whereas, AND by Anita Dongre does up to size UK20 and H&M has a dedicated plus size section that goes up to size 4XL. Asos, Newlook, Missguided, and Boohoo are my personal favorites.
International shipping for Plus size
Other international platforms that ship to India are Yourclothing, Lovedrobe, Pinkclove Justcurvy, Riverisland Forever21 also does Plus size Some of these international websites might charge an extra shipping charge and all of them charge a customs duty that is an ascertained amount to be paid at the time of delivery. If you are heavier on the hips and thighs, buy bottoms that fit your thighs perfectly even if it’s a size or two bigger at the waist. You can always get the waist altered. The same goes for your tops. Try on everything that catches your eye. Certain silhouettes look different on your body than they do on the hanger and we often get caught up in a narrow definition of what looks good on us. Don’t speed-shop if you’re searching for something really specific. Give yourself enough time to browse and try different silhouettes. Take a trusted friend with you who is willing to give an honest opinion.
Plus size Dresses – How to Shop Online
When shopping online make sure to always check the size chart for measurement specifications. Also, check what size the model is wearing and her height this will give you a better idea of the product. Make sure to check the product details as it will help in deciding what size to order and whether that particular fabric works for you or not. When shopping on international websites be very careful of your purchases as their return policies can be complicated and you might have to pay for the return. Whereas, Indian websites offer free returns. Make sure to read the return policy before making a purchase. I hope plus size shopping is going to be much easier now.
