Shopping for club wear for a plus size body is almost like shopping for the perfect bra. If you don't know where to go it can be quite painful and aggravating. There are different kinds of club wear from moderate to over-the-top depending on your tastes and just how much you like to bear. Here are a few online retailers offering club wear or club acceptable clothing for plus size bodies.
Torrid - Very sexy and revealing clothing for the "plus size young women". They have a special category labelled club wear or you can shop via category or brand. One of their featured models is Canadian beauty Christina Schmidt. Plus sizing 12 to 26.
Monif C - Designer style and price made to show off your beautiful curves. Limited selection but you won't see it around every corner. Be sure to check out the 'convertible dress' that offers ten alternative looks. Plus sizing 14 to 24.
Hips & Curves - What does a lingerie boutique know about club wear? Not much but they know a lot about bustiers, corsets and short leather skirts (under dresses). Hips & Curves was featured on the Tyra Banks Show. Plus sizing 16 to 28.
Igigi - Don't let the long frilly dresses on the main page throw you off. Check out their tops and pants for some sexy club wear options. They offer exotic colours and silhouettes to decorate the most voluptuous figures. Boutique pricing and layout. Beautiful full-figured models.Plus sizing 14 to 32.
Body Web - This is a new addition to this article. The designs are so hot. While they were designed with ulterior motives I think they would make awesome club wear pieces. They are just too strange (yet beautiful) to describe. Make sure you check out their customer scrapbook to see all the beautiful body types wearing this artwork. Plus sizing up to 3X.
Hourglass Fashions - Has one of the largest selections of plus size club wear in larger plus sizes that I've ever seen. Size range from S - 12X. Some items are a bit pricy.
Asarte - Designed to show off the bust. Not a heavy selection of club wear but they definitely have a few pieces that would be perfect for showing off your curves under the neon lights. I suggest using their clothing category option of the catalogue. Sizing? They consider themselves "a Size Free Zone" but go up to a 70" hip (their 4X). There's a place where you enter your body measurements.
Kiyonna - Get your Spanx and body tape from their body shapers section.
Hot NiniZ - This online shop has fabulous steals in plus size tops and dresses that are perfect for the club or party girl. They offer regular and plus sizes 1x - 3x. And shipping is very reasonable.
Size Appeal - Sexy tops, pants, skirts and dresses to meet all your clubbing needs. Clothes are "hip, cool, sexy and moderately priced". Their focus is enhancing the plus size figure. Beautiful models show off the sexy duds on the main pages but most of the clothing is laid out with no distractions. Plus sizing 14 to 26.
