'Queen, Misses, plus, Large, Big/Beautiful, full-figured'...all names for sizes 12 and up. I know...ridiculous, size 12 is very small to me. I am 'ample' at size 18-20. As a teen it was hard to find fashionable clothing in large sizes. Finding plus sizes at thrift stores was a huge challenge.

Luckily it's all different today. 'Lane Bryant' which was a catalog company when I was a kid is now a major retailer of plus-sized fashion.

There is plenty of large and lovely clothing in stores now, however, it isn't cheap. Never fear, if you know how to shop at thrift stores, big/beautiful can also be big/savings.

The outfit in the photo cost $11.00 total at Goodwill (Tropicana Store.)

Shoes   $7.00

Top (brand new with tags org. price $19.99) $1.99

Skirt $1.99
