The hardest thing about plus-size shopping, or online clothes shopping in general, is finding that perfect fit. Everyone is shaped differently, so different clothes have a different fit, depending on who is wearing them. Because of this, I generally recommend online shopping with companies that offer free or easy returns and exchanges. But I recently discovered a retailer that is helping resolve this issue in an entirely different manner.
Customize Your Clothing Fit
CurveGirl.com takes the worry out of online clothing shopping, creating custom fit clothing women of any size, height, or shape can order to match their own measurements. CurveGirl developed an app for their site that helps them customize the perfect fit on anything in their catalog.
All you have to do is take a picture of yourself from the front and the side, and answer a few questions, and CurveGirl will customize any of their clothing options based on personal, exact measurements. They make perfectly custom fit clothing for women, for no additional cost than the cost of the item itself. And they do it for all sizes from 2 to 10X.
No matter what your size is you can get a fit on your clothing that makes it look made-for-you. The clothing is also high-quality, extremely affordable, and totally on-point with today’s fashion trends. No more boring black dresses and moo moo’s.
CurveGirl ships internationally to the USA, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Finland Sweden, Norway, Ireland, Germany, France, Dubai, India, Singapore, and Hong Kong for a flat rate of $5, and free shipping for any orders over $50. Standard shipping time is 8-10 business days, but you can request expedited delivery in 5 business days for $20.
They offer $20 flat rate shipping to everywhere else in the world.
Because they make everything customized to your measurements, CurveGirl unfortunately cannot allow general returns if you simply don’t like something, because they aren’t able to resell it. However, they do guarantee the fit and will refund in full if there is a defect or error with your item’s fit. They will send you a prepaid return shipping label to return your item, and allow you 30 days from purchase to send it back for a refund.
If you do ever get a clothing item you don’t really love that you can’t return, I recommend trying to sell it on Poshmark. It’s where I’ve been able to get the best price in third party selling of fashion. I wrote another article on Poshmark if you’re interested: Sell Your Clothing Online – How I Make Money on Poshmark
Affordable Trendy Custom Plus Size Clothing
In addition to saving you money from having to personally customize your clothing sizes, no more hemming in the fitting room, CurveGirl’s clothes are actually pretty awesome. The prices are less than or equivalent to other retailers, and their styles are classic and on-trend.
In addition to customization, I am excited to find such a great collection of trendy and affordable plus size clothing. I’ve listed ten of my most favorite CurveGirl pieces here.

1. GO OUT OR STAY CLASSY
I would absolutely live in this dress. It’s something I could see wearing around the house, but it would be perfectly appropriate for an evening out, as well. Unlike other moo-moo style dresses, this one reveals some sexy elements so it’s clearly not just a potato sack to hide in. And it’s on sale right now!
2. A DIFFERENT KIND OF OVERSIZED
I absolutely LOVE this top. It comes in several different colors, and the price makes it possible to fill your closet with all of them. This would go perfectly over a pair of leggings. The asymmetrical hem makes it interesting and takes it from just an oversized sweatshirt, to something cute and interesting and even a little sexy. The pockets are a definite perk.
3. SPICE UP THE OFFICE
There is so much about this dress that excites me. It’s nice enough to wear to work, but the sash and collar make it much less boring than most office dresses. I love the length and sleeves, nothing to feel self-conscious about, and the belt across the middle with the v-neck is extremely flattering. I can’t even believe the price on this dress.
4. SOUND THE TRUMPET SLEEVES
There is no way you won’t make a statement with a dress like this. Perfect for a casual wedding, or even something you could wear to work as a retailer, the sleeves on this dress will steal all the attention.
5. BLACK TIE AFFAIR
Just because we’re plus-sized, doesn’t mean we have to be covering everything up all the time. Be proud of who you are and how you look. Embrace the beauty of your unique appearance, individual to only you. And then hugely rock it out with this fabulous tuxedo-style, bodycon, cocktail dress.
6. CURVY ELLEGANCE AND GRACE
If you feel the need to cover it all up, which a lot of us do at times, do it with complete elegance and grace. Make it purposeful, with custom shape and design to feature what’s best about you. And make it a little mysterious, begging the question, “What is behind that magnificent shroud?” I can’t imagine any figure this dress wouldn’t look amazing on, with the perfectly cinched waist that flows out at the perfect point to make seamless connection with the hips. Imagine it custom-made?
7. SEQUINS ON THE RED CARPET
This is my absolute favorite piece of clothing on this page, and maybe in the world of plus size dresses. I love the idea of being able to wear sequin dresses, but they never seem to hug right to my curves and end up looking lumpy and unattractive. This dress has the perfect combination of bodycon, with sequins applied in large, sparkling designs that help to guide the eye in a flattering direction. Don’t get me started about the flowy skirt at the bottom – fabulous!
8. THE QUEEN HAS ARRIVED
The latest inventory on CurveGirl comes with a variety of options for formal wear that are positively regal. There is no way you will end up at a party wearing anything like what someone else is wearing. Have a Lady Gaga or Beyonce moment and try something like this.
9. EMBRACING COLOR
Although black is said to be flattering for the plus size figure, that doesn’t mean every aspect of your entire wardrobe has to be dark. CurveGirl has some incredible designs that use shapes and lines to draw attention in all the right ways, allowing you to enjoy wearing colorful dresses like this one.
10. PRINTS IN PARADISE
Prints are another great thing any figure can find flattering if the cut is right. I have several monochrome jumpsuits like this one, and I get so many complements when I wear them. I wanted to show an example with this jumpsuit below, but I also wanted you to see CurveGirl doesn’t only carry dresses. There is a lot available in all categories of clothing and they are continuing to grow their options to fit all possible body types and even handicaps.
