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

1. ASOS

ASOS offers plus-size clothing for sizes 14-32.

ASOS is a British online fashion store; however, they ship worldwide (including Australia) and offer a nice range of plus size clothes under their ASOS Curve & Plus Size line. They have a lot of trendy, casual clothes and tend to offer various promotions and sales throughout the year.

Price Range: $

Sizes: AU 14 – AU 32

Style: Casual; t-shirts, trendy blouses, jeans, tanks, comfy jumpers, etc.

Free Shipping?: For purchases over $40, or if you buy a PREMIER DELIVERY subscription ($39 AUD a year), you'll access free shipping on all purchases with no minimum spending.

Afterpay?: Yes.

2. Atomic Cherry

Atomic Cherry is an online store based in Brisbane, Australia. They primarily sell rockabilly and punk-style clothing and have a large plus-size range. Atomic Cherry is a nice (and surprisingly affordable) alternative to sites like ModCloth or other vintage clothing stores which don’t offer many plus-size options or do so at exorbitant prices.

Price Range: $$

Sizes: XL – 4XL

Style: Retro/vintage; blouses, skirts, dresses, overcoats and more, all with bold patterns, prints, and rockabilly style fashions.

Free Shipping?: For purchases over $50.

Afterpay?: Yes, as well as ZipPay.

3. Autograph

Autograph is an Australian/NZ clothing store that has both physical shops and online shopping. They cater to a more mature style of clothing and have a lot of nice blouses that are suitable for business casual attire. They tend to have sales nearly all the time (sign up for the newsletter to be notified of their flash sales) with 50%–70% discounts.

Price Range: $$

Sizes: AU 14 – AU 32

Style: Casual and business casual; conservative blouses, printed tops, day and evening dresses, kaftans, etc.

Free Shipping?: For purchases over $80.

Afterpay?: Yes.

4. Best and Less

Best and Less is another Australian retailer with both storefront and online shopping. Their clothes are mainly what you’d find in a department store, but they do offer lots of plus-size options, and I’ve found some really cute dresses there from time to time. They’re also very affordable and on the cheaper end of the spectrum.

Price Range: $

Sizes: AU 18 – AU 26

Style: Very casual; t-shirts, jeggings, shorts, fleece jumpers, pullovers, trackpants, pajamas, etc.

Free Shipping?: No, but shipping is offered at a flat-rate of $10, Australia-wide.

Afterpay?: Yes, as well as ZipPay and traditional layby.

5. Big W

Speaking of department stores, Big W is one of the largest Australian department stores and offers both physical retail and online shopping. Again, most of their clothing is quite casual, but they offer a nice range of plus-size clothing and have some licensed clothing (i.e., Harry Potter and Marvel branded) clothing from time to time.

Price Range: $

Sizes: AU 16 – AU 26

Style: Very casual; plain and graphic t-shirts, jeans, shorts, fleece jumpers, pajamas, casual dresses, etc.

Free Shipping?: For purchases over $50.

Afterpay?: Yes, and traditional layby.

6. Boohoo

Boohoo is a UK-based online retailer, which offers shipping worldwide, including to Australia. They are more youth-focused, with casual and club wear for teens and young adults. They also have sales fairly often, which you can be notified of by subscribing to their newsletter.

Price Range: $$

Sizes: AU 16 – AU 26

Style: Casual/trendy; blouses, ripped jeans, bodysuits, skinny and stretch jeans, smock and skater dresses, graphic tees, etc.

Free Shipping?: No, but the flat shipping rate is $7.99. There are occasionally promos when free shipping is available.

Afterpay?: Yes.

7. Forever 21

They have just started to make their way to the Australian market; currently, there are two physical stores located in Brisbane and Sydney.

8. Kmart

Kmart Australia is another department store that offers storefront and online retail. While their clothes aren’t the most fashionable, they do offer a decent selection of plus-size casual clothing for women of all ages.

Price Range: $

Sizes: AU 18 – AU 26

Style: Very casual; empire tops, t-shirts, plain blouses, jeans, pajamas, trackpants, etc.

Free Shipping?: No, and no flat delivery fee either, so shipping costs vary depending on order and location.

9. Target

Target Australia is yet another department store, which again, offers a variety of plus-size clothing. They’re a bit more fashionable and have more work attire compared to the other department stores mentioned above. While you can find casual clothes, you can also find business casual work-wear, too. Their Belle Curve line is suited specifically for plus-sizes (and I personally buy all my bras from their Belle Curve line).

Price Range: $$

Sizes: AU 16 – AU 26

Style: Casual/business casual; cardigans, jeans, jackets, buttoned blouses, pencil skirts, conservative dresses, pajamas, plus-size underwear, etc.

10. The Iconic

The Iconic is a Sydney-based online fashion store. The Iconic has a generous plus-size section, which generally sources from other retailers (i.e., you can purchase clothing from companies like Good American, Levi, J. Crew, Nike, etc. on The Iconic’s website). Their clothes are suited for young adult shoppers and offer some trendy options. Prices are a bit higher than most, but they run sales and promos often that offer half off or more.

Sizes: AU 14 – AU 26

Style: Trendy/designer; blouses, jeans, jackets, cardigans, swimwear, maxi and wrap dresses, active wear, etc.
