” If you’ve never fallen in love at first sight , you’re shopping on the wrong site !!! “
Hi My Loves ,
It feels like ages since I’ve blogged , hasn’t it ? Well my apologies for the delay but I promise I have made up for it .
I bring to you this blog with 4 of the most popular Plus Size online brands. Being plus size , I understand how painful and stressful retail therapy can be. Till a while back we hardly had any stores catering to our needs here in India . But slowly and steadily that scenario seems to be changing. We not only have walk in stores now selling plus sizes like – Westside , Pantaloons , aLL and Lifestyle , but also many new online sites dedicated solely to plus sized clothing have come up recently . Although we still have miles to go for complete fashion democracy , these new stores are a welcoming change !
Even though time to time , I post photos on my Instagram and Facebook feed featuring these brands , I have come to understand that a lot of you still aren’t very familiar with these sites. I get DM’s , inbox messages and mails asking me where I shop from or which stores or sites have plus sized clothing. Hence here I will be talking about 4 online sites for all you plus size shopaholic divas out there. Are they Yay or Nay ? Let’s find out !
Amydus was my first ever plus size online purchase back in 2014 . I still have that pretty bird print maxi dress with me . This brand was out there to help us Big girls find fashionable clothes back when Big wasn’t the new Black ! What I love about this brand is that although they are sort of the pioneers when it comes to online plus sized fashion , they still are always looking to better their game and have new and latest trendy apparel flooding their website almost on a weekly basis . You will also need to be proactive here with your “add to cart” game ’cause if you get laggy chances are that your favourite product will get sold out in no time . They have sizes ranging from a UK 16 to a UK 28 . You can find everything here from basic tees , leggings , jeggings and camis to Casual Indian Kurtas , Formal work wear , Party dresses and Jackets and even Night wears . Amydus is definitely a YAY all the way for me .

A brand that is only about a year old but has quickly earned it’s place in our hearts and our wardrobes is Calae . They call themselves a one stop shop for every kind of plus sized clothing and I tots agree ! Staying at par with the latest trends of the season , this brand is your place to go if you are looking for fashionable , fun , flirtatious and feminine designs. Calae believe’s that their customers are like family and I can vouch for that . A lot of brands don’t realise that the best way of marketing their brand is by word of mouth, by having happy customers . I still remember , I must have been Calae’s first few customers ’cause I fell in love with their designs as soon as I saw them launched on the site and ordered few dresses right away , but there was some mishap with the logistics company and the products didn’t get delivered on time . I was contacted directly by the CEO of Calae who got the deliveries sorted . Such personal , proactive resolutions to a customer’s woes are what I love in any organisation . I am sure this trait has helped them earn brownie points with several other customers around the globe . Calae is a definite YAY for me . They have sizes ranging from USA 14 to 26 . Go forth my loves and explore the pretty world of Calae ! ❤
If you don’t mind paying a lil’ more for a beautiful cut and fit then Afamado is the place for you . Apart from generic plus sizes they also make custom , tailor made dresses for you on request …now that’s just Wow ! As of now this brand only has dresses but be sure to note that their designs more than make up for that. I was left spoilt for choice the first time I surfed their website . I absolutely love their superior quality in the materials that they use and the beautiful prints that they have . Yay Yay Yay !

With one sale or the other going on most of the time and with super affordable prices , this brand is a go to for college going girls who care more about quantity than quality . At first when I came across this brand , I thought it to be really promising by the looks of their designs . But as they say , do not judge a book by its cover , I faced issues with their clothing and sizing time and again . I was once sent a piece that not only was defective but was infact even marked as defective by perhaps their quality check , but still that was mailed to the me . I then faced sizing issues with another product and they refused to get it exchanged- what they would rather have a customer do was to pay Shipping charges to get their product delivered , Return the product on her own to the warehouse bearing shipping costs and again place a New order paying shipping charges for that yet again ! And when I got in touch with them through customer service and by DMing them on Insta , they had nothing to say or no way ease this process , rather they just kept blabbering about “company policies ” . Such kind of customer service is unacceptable by me . A lot of my followers on insta wrote back to me about the issues with quality and sizing that they faced as well with lastinch. If you are a daredevil and are willing to risk your money..haha…then Lastinch awaits you ..But for me , it is a big and bold NAY !
