Young and Trendy Plus-size Fashion

Please note that young and trendy styles can come in several sizing systems.  Those that are identified as "junior plus"  run smaller and narrower through the hip and bust areas when compared to women's plus-sizes. Extended sizes belong to the "Misses" cut which is curvier than "Juniors", but still doesn't have as much room in the bust, arm, waist and thigh areas as "Women's" cuts with the same size numbers. Make sure to consult size charts and compare your measurements. 

For an in depth discussion see the

Whether you're looking for
the latest leggings, tops, or a cute plus-size dress the options are endless.   Styles tend to casual and this is the shopping category where it's easiest to find low cost fashion.  Fabulous trendy plus-size tees rock your curves in graphic prints, color blocking and stripes, hot colored jeans..... the trends are all here, in your size.  Price points in this style category tend to be low to moderate, with Fast Fashion retailers making a bulk of the listings.  Gradually more upscale labels and designers with a trendier vibe are beginning to extend into larger sizes, but are still rare at the major retailers.
