As a plus sized sister, I find that often the best way to find the clothes you like is to shop online. Here's comparing some of the UKs best plus sized fashion sources shipping. One of the questions is - how long is it going to take to get here, and how much is THAT going to cost:
Evans / Style 369 - while I tend not to like the "fit" of the clothes here (they assume a very odd shape indeed) - they offer free standard (3-5 working days) delivery on Style 369 and nominated day delivery at £5 for a week day £7.50 on the weekend. Standard Delivery on Evans is £4.00.
Very - love the fit and the fact that their main brands stretch to a UK24. So fabulous stocks up to size 32 in some fashions. Very offers next day delivery at £3.95 nominated day delivery is £4.95 you can even have it delivered to a collect + location for free (which arrives the next day too!)
Forever 21- I have been in love with faith 21 and forever 21+ since I first stumbled across it at crabtree mall in NC. Since they opened stores in the UK (3) only one has a very measly plus section, the perk- the full range at amazing prices online! Delivery is free over £50! £3.95 for standard delivery which takes between 2 and 4 days, £4.95 for express delivery between 1 and 3 days. I'm not sure they've thought that through - and If I'm honest I've ordered things on a Sunday and had it by Tuesday before and I didn't pay that extra £1!
Simply Be, I love what they're trying to do. But delivery varies by the item you buy in my experience. Standard delivery is always at least £2.99 taking up to 6 days to arrive, next day is £3.99 nominated day delivery is £6.98 (Standard delivery + £3.99).
My favourite has to be ASOS, their curve line is generally generous in sizing and a lovely fit. Their trend fashions are immaculate. Style saver delivery can take up to 6 days and is free (in my experience it never actually took 6 days), Standard Delivery is within 3 days at £3.95, Next day and nominated day delivery is £5.95, Evening next day delivery is £7.95
