Even though 67% of women are plus size, it’s pretty hard to find brick and mortar stores that one can shop in!! I travel to New York City regularly, and while the city is known as a shopping destination, it can be pretty hard to figure out where to find plus size stores.
Below, I’ve shared a list of where to find plus size shops in NYC, along with my thoughts on their offering and selection.
Did i miss a store? Be sure to drop me a line so I can add it!!
[Heads up! This post was originally published on January 21, 2020. It was updated July 12, 2021.]
Brooklyn & Manhattan
All of these plus size stores are located in either Brooklyn or Manhattan. I’ve started with plus size stores on the UES and then made my way to Brooklyn, creating a sort of map that you can follow for a day of shopping in the city!!
Store #1: Eloquii in SoHo – NOW CLOSED 🙁
This store closed in 2021. I recommend shopping Eloquii online, HERE.
I’m leaving this information below, just in case the store comes BACK!
I recently visited this store in SoHo, and I had such a blast shopping for plus size coats and fashion forward looks. The staff at this SoHo are excellent, and it’s really a fun shopping experience. They offer stying appointments and really make you feel like a VIP when shopping there.
If you can, I’d recommend taking the subway (I took the 6 from the UES), so you can pass the really fun fashion windows of PRADA, Moncler, etc etc.
This Eloquii is located at 120 Wooster St, New York, NY 10012. (CLOSED)
Eloquii also had stores in Atlanta, Chicago, Washington DC, Detroit, Houston, and Philadelphia.
NOTE: Eloquii corporate offices are in Long Island City (juts outside of NYC), so don’t travel over there to shop! I almost put in the wrong address when heading out to shop!
Store #2: 11 Honoré Showroom
11 Honoré is one of my favorite plus size brands. The brand partners with high end and luxury designers like Christian Siriano, Carolina Herrera, Tanya Taylor, etc, offering these designers in up to a size 24.
11 Honoré has showrooms in Chicago, LA and NYC, and offers personal styling appointments by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Address upon request.
Plus Size Clothing Store #3: Shegul in The Garment District – Temporarily Closed
Shegul is a modern luxury brand, offering sizes 10-26. They’ve been a mainstay in the plus size luxury space for quite a while, offering RTW pieces that really elevate a wardrobe.
Their store is located in The Garment District (next to Times Square) making it easy for visitors to the city to get some IRL shopping in on their way to a Broadway show or Mood Fabrics. Please note that at time of publication, the store is closed.
270 W 38th St #2000, New York, NY 10018
The Shegul website is HERE!
Plus Size Clothing Store #4: Universal Standard in SoHo
This store is actually pretty close to Eloquii in SoHo, so you can shop two plus size brands IRL while cutting down on your travel time!
Universal Standard is known for its workwear and luxe plus size outerwear, and they offer sizes 4XS to 4XL
They recently moved locations, so I’m unsure if this photo is of the most recent store (found on Yelp!), but I think it imparts the Universal Standard vibe.
192 Mercer St fl 4, New York, NY 10012
An appointment is required to shop! Please book here.
Plus Size Clothing Store #5: Anthropologie
There are a multitude of Anthropologies in NYC, but the one at Rockefeller Center is the one you want to visit to snag plus sizes. Anthropologie released plus sizes about a year ago, and I just did a photoshoot featutring my first pieces from the brand – stay tuned!
Be sure to call ahead to make sure they are stocking plus sizes, as some stores will have a plus section and then it will go away, ugh!
50 Rockefeller Plaza, Rockefeller Center, New York, NY 10020
Plus Size Clothing Store #6: HENNING
Plus Size Clothing Store #7: Plus BKLYN in Brooklyn
OMG! This is one of my favorite store, EVER! (I interviewed the owner, Alexis Krase, here!) Plus BKLYN is a resale and vintage store, featuring gently used plus size thrift and vintage pieces. They’re located just off of the subway in Brooklyn, and they carry sizes 1X to 6X.
On a recent trip to NYC, I actually brought a suitcase full of clothes to sell to the store. I definitely recommend visiting!
490 Metropolitan Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11211
Plus Size Clothing Store #8: Fashion to Figure
Okay, TBQH, I didn’t even know that Fashion to Figure HAD stores?! They have one in Brooklyn and The Bronx. The brand offers clothes in 1X to 3X (around a size 24).
There are different stores listed on Google Maps, so be sure to call ahead! Link to store list here.
Shop Fashion to Figure HERE!
Plus Size Clothing Store #9: La Cera
I hadn’t heard of La Cera until I started searching for plus size boutiques and stores in NYC. This brand is similar to a Catherine’s or Lane Bryant.
42 W 39th St 17th floor, New York, NY 10018
Plus Size Clothing Store #10: Lane Bryant
Where would we be without LB?! International travelers will definitely want to stop by one of the half-dozen Lane Bryant locations. I’ve separated them out by neighborhood below, so you can more easily plan your trip.
- Manhattan: 224 W 125th St #222, New York, NY 10027
- Brooklyn:: 410 Gateway Dr, Brooklyn, NY 11239
- The Bronx: 54 W 225th St, The Bronx, NY 10463
View all of the locations for Lane Bryant here.
Plus Size Clothing Store #11: Ashley Stewart
There are almost ten locations for Ashley Stewart in NYC! If I were you, I’d go to an area where there’ only one plus size store (ie Plus BKLYN or Shegul), and then find the closest Ashley Stewart to that store!
Here’s a list of all of the Ashley Stewart stores in Brooklyn, Manhattan, The Bronx, etc.
Plus Size Clothing Store #12: Torrid
Last but NEVER least is Torrid! There’s about 3 in NYC (I thought there would be way more!), and they’re located in Brooklyn, The Bronx, and Staten Island.
Plus Size Clothing Pop-Up Stores to Check Out
These plus size brands don’t have year-round retail spaces, but they do host pop-ups. If you’re into trunk shows and unique shopping experiences, I’d definitely reach out to these brands to see when their next pop up is – and see if you can stop by while you’re in town!
