3 Really Cute Plus-Size Brands That Don't Sell Anything Resembling A Shapeless Sack

It seems like the fashion industry is starting to realize that not everyone wears a size 2–and girls with curves are not interested in wearing something ugly and shapeless.  Oprah’s favorite CJ by Cookie Johnson jeans just went plus-size, and there are more brands on the scene that make flattering plus-size clothes that are modern, too. Here are three brands you should check out for stylish plus-size clothes:

1. Pure Energy

Pure Energy is a one-year-old brand that’s sold exclusively at Target. The clothes are trendy, fun, and incredibly affordable. This Pure Energy Blue V-Neck Short-Sleeve Tunic ($24.99) ties in the back and has pleating details that make the waist look slimmer, while this Pure Energy Sleeveless Dress ($24.99) has a pretty print and ruffle details that don’t add on too much volume.

2. Melissa Masse

Melissa Masse launched her line in 2002 with sizes ranging from extra small to 3X. Her dresses are universally figure flattering, and fuse comfort with style.  We love this Melissa Masse Faux-Wrap Jersey Dress ($325) that gives the illusion of a wrap dress, but it easily slips on over your head. For a longer option, try this Melissa Masse Print Maxi Dress ($295).

3. Caslon

For basics, try out Nordstrom’s in-house Caslon brand.They make affordable camis, tees, and cardigans in a variety of colors that are wardrobe staples. This Caslon Cardigan ($58) drapes perfectly over the body, and the thick straps on this Caslon Ribbed Tank ($18) work for bustier figures.

Check out Spanx’s new On Top and In Control line of tees, and then see our guides to the best Spanx swimwear, the best bras for big busts, and the best underwear.
