Are you trying to figure out where to shop for plus size clothing in Los Angeles?
As a plus size shopper, I know it can be pretty hard to find a brick and mortar store that carries plus size fashion! I go to LA on a regular basis, and while there are a ton of places to shop, it can be a challenge to figure out what store *actually* carry plus size clothing in-store.
[Instead of, ya know, the brands who *say* they carry plus size clothing – but don’t! I hate experiencing that!!!]
This blog post is all about where to buy plus size clothes in LA.
Plus Size Clothing Stores in LA
Ok, so rounding up a list of plus size clothing stores is moreeee a roundup of plus size boutiques and fashion brands in LA County, where LA is located. When I go to LA, I make sure sure to use Google Maps to strategize my shopping and driving time!
Below, I’ve shared a list of where to find plus size shops in LA, along with my thoughts on their offering and selection.
Tips for Shopping for Plus Size Clothes in LA:
- MAP IT! Los Angeles is a geographic area, and something that looks “pretty close” can take a LONG time to get there, because of traffic! Be sure to check travel time and avoid rush hour! Doublecheck the address before going!
- Call ahead! If you’re looking for specific sizes or pieces, you can definitely call ahead (or message a brand on Instagram) for smaller boutiques and stores!
- Have fun & use a stylist! Many of the se plus size clothing stores in LA will have an onsite stylist or customer service person who can help you put together new outfits! You’re in LA, baby! Step outside of your comfort zone! I think it’s so fun to play with fashion, don’t you?!
FYI: I first published this post on March 1, 2022. It was last updated on April 4, 2023. Be sure to doublecheck all addresses and info, as some brands will move locations down the street or in a shopping mall!

Los Angeles Plus Size Store #4: Lane Bryant
Lane Bryant is a staple in many plus size shoppers closet! Lane Bryant carries clothes in up to a size 40 on their site, but I have not seen a size 40 in-store.
