The complaint from many of the plus size women I speak with are the same-- There is no place to shop for the plus-size woman. Not only is that not true, that is completely untrue. The true problem is that many plus size women don't like to shop online. But here's a secret: Every place that you could think catering to plus-size women are primarily online.
Gone are the days of the brick-and-mortar experience being the only way to find pieces that fit your taste and your personal style. I talked about the benefits of shopping online in a previous article. The gist of it all was that you get to shop in your pajamas, better return policies and more options than you can ever find in your local mall or shopping center. Not everyone lives in a big town and not everyone has access to these big stores. Many plus-size sections are not even in stores and or are relegated to a corner with selections that are the 10 seasons old. You don't have to settle. You do have to accept that many of your options are online. So what better way to show you then to share a few of the hundred websites that I have found in my time styling plus size women. Today we start with shoes size 10+. I share 10 of my favorite finds below.
Long Tall Sally
Great for finding special sized shoes
For the tall stylista

What I love about this site is that it offers more than the everyday shoe. No longer are you relegated to only blacks and browns. You have the option of different patterns, textures and styles of shoe that everyone can wear up to a size 15. They have revamped their pricing system, options, and check out process making it easier and a better experience for everyone.
