Above Size 14 Shopping Guide in the DMV- Pt. 2

Yessssss! It is another above size 14 shopping guide to the DMV that you are about to dive into! If you are unsure of what the heck I am talking about, check out my blog post on this topic back in March about how it is so hard to shop above size 14 at the mall. Now I do love shopping online, but for me I love being able to try something on in person and of course I do EVERYTHING last minute. Shopping for outfits weeks in advance sometimes is not in the cards for me. Or you may just like be able to stroll around shops, leisurely try pieces on and have fun with it. The last guide I did you all would be shocked to find out that only about 3 stores (not including department stores) at Pentagon City Mall that carried above a size 14 in store…3!!!!! Anywho, shout out to Eloquii, Forever 21, and True Religion.

Now I know for those of you that do not live in the DMV this may not feel helpful, but my plan is to take this show on the road and hit up other major shopping malls and give you guys the scoop. So I took a tiny roadtrip to the Annapolis Mall which for those of that are not local is in Maryland. This mall is pretty big and I will say I did enjoy strolling around. It wasn’t too crowded, was clean, and there was quite a large amount of stores. Also, I figured I would go further into this area for those that may be too far from Pentagon City or Tysons Corner. So I did not stop in the department stores, I really focused on the stores and I think I will save my department store round up for a future post. So for now here is the breakdown of what sizes are offered in store:

Aerie- up to size XL

American Eagle- up to size 16 & XL

Ann Taylor- up to size 14 & XL

The Buckle- up to size XL

Forever 21- up to size 3X

Francescas- up to size L

Free People- up to size 12 & L

H&M- up to size XL & 12

Loft- up to size 14

Lucky- up to size 14 & XL

NY & Co- up to size 18 & XL

Pacsun- up to size L

Papaya- up to size L & 13

Torrid- up to size 4X

Tommy Bahama- up to size XL & 16

White House Black Market- up to size 14 & XL

Windsor- up to size 16 & XL

Zara- up to size 14 & XL

Lululemon- up to size 12

Hollister- up to size L

Express- up to size XL & 12

Eddie Bauer- up to size XL & 16

Yes, we do see options that venture in store above a size 14, but let’s be honest sizes can run smaller. So that size 14 may fit like a 12 and that 16 is really a 14. So in conclusion Bravo to Torrid, Forever 21, and NY and Co., but again WOW!!!!! Only three stores in the whole mall can give women above size 14 or even 16 the flexibility and comfort in knowing they can size up and have options if needed. Again, such an eye opening experience of where retail is really at with inclusize sizing. Now onto the next one…Tysons Corner, stay tuned friends!
