Is there anywhere that I can buy clothes for my size (plus size) that are inexpensive but still chic? (Keyword being

I occasionally shop at Torrid (where I wear a size zero...yaay! lol) but they are very expensive IMO. I am just wondering where I can buy cute clothes with a Wet Seal price tag for my size. Oh and I live in Alaska so if you know of anywhere here, that would be great, but online stores are okay too. Thanks in advance!

  • I am here in Alaska too. Have you tried Gottschalks since they are going out of business? If you are near Anchorage then there is Target and JCPenney. If you are outside of Anchorage such as Fairbanks than there really isnt much to choose from.

  • If you go to you can find coupons, sales, and clearances at a ton of clothing stores.  Just go there, sign up (takes 15 seconds), and search their clothing & accessories category.  Also, every purchase you make will earn you rewards points towards gift certificates.
