It can be hard to find fashionable and affordable plus-size clothing options for women no matter where you live, but it feels like a real struggle at times in Australia. While there are lots of clothing options both online and storefront around Australia, sometimes the plus-size options (AU 14 and up) seem few and far between.

I've cultivated a list of the best plus-size online clothing stores for Australian shoppers, and also included some details for you if you're new to the particular store, including price range, free shipping offers, and whether Afterpay is available or not.

Price Guide

  • $: Discount, most clothes are $30 or less
  • $$: Affordable, clothing is $50 or less
  • $$$: Mid-range, clothing $75 and up
  • $$$$: Expensive, $100 and more

Sizes: XL – 4XL

Free Shipping?: For purchases over $50.

Best and Less is another Australian retailer with both storefront and online shopping.

Questions & Answers

Question: What about city chic? Fantastic shop for dresses and much more!

Answer: I don't mind City Chic, but they are quite expensive, in my opinion, and some of the clothes are a bit matronly. But if you can find a cute dress on sale, go for it!
