As plus size fashion continues to grow more and more brands are launching at various price points. However, shopping for new clothes all the time may not be in one’s budget. I know it’s not in mind. But plus size thrifting is no easy task AT ALL. Sometimes you’ll have good luck at your local Goodwill or whatever local thrift store you may have near you, but that is after having to really scour the racks to find your size and hope it fits.
While some may enjoy the thrill of the hunt in a physical thrift store, others just walk away in frustration. Now however plus size thrifting is on a rise and this post list some of the best places for plus size thrift shopping.
Located right in Brooklyn, Plus BLYN is a vintage girl’s dream. Perfect for the plus size fashionista that lives for a full splash of nostalgia. Sizes run from 1x-6x, so there is something for every size. If you’re looking to sell some times, they offer that as well with certain guidelines. Check out their website for more information.
The 1st of it’s kind in LA The Plus Bus a one-stop-shop for plus size women to trade/sell the items in their closet and shop gently used plus size fashion from brands like Eloquii, Torrid, and Premme. They also offer styling services by appointment, so if you need a little extra help shopping, they got you!
A brilliant plus size business venture started by to plus size bloggers Darlene of Suits, Heels & Curves and Sandra of La Pecosa Precosia. They started selling their gently used clothing from their personal closets via Facebook Live. Due to the popularity of their sales, they began to offer other bloggers & influencers in NY an opportunity to sell their clothing through their FB lives. The blogger House Curvy Closet has expanded to a full plus size online consignment. Occasionally the BHCC will join pop up shops as a way to bring BHCC to the public. Please check their website for any details.
It is the largest online resale company offering thousands and thousands of brands. Started with the idea of being a men’s shirt swap, ThredUp has morphed into something completely different. You can now buy some of the best name brand plus size clothing for a fraction of the price. AND you’re helping save the plant. I say that’s a win/win.
There’s almost nothing that you CAN’T buy via Poshmark. Poshmark allows anyone to sell their clothing from their closets as another way to make some side cash. The seller is allowed to set their price, and you as the buyer has the option to negotiate a lower price. (Of course, final sale is up to the seller) Poshmark takes some time to really look through, but you can always find some gems.
