Ross

This discount clothing retailer has a plus-sized section, so you can score fashionable wardrobe additions at great prices. Because each Ross has a different inventory, the selection of clothing will vary.

TJ Maxx

TJ Maxx has a great selection of size-inclusive clothing both in-store and online. The brand boasts over 4,800 locations in nine countries and three continents, but like Ross, your mileage may vary depending on what styles you find in the store.

Bottom line

Many brands offer expanded sizes online, but not every physical store stocks plus sizes for your favorite styles. 

These stores are dedicated to inclusive sizing and have plus sizes in stock so you can see how each item fits you, rather than relying on subjective sizing guides for online shopping. Plus, you can stop wasting money on return shipping when things don’t fit.
