Shopping second-hand and thrifting is a great way of bagging a bargain and it’s eco-friendly too! We love finding absolute treasures and breathing new life into vintage pieces. But like a lot of our other times, we want to shop, the range of sizes is just not inclusive, like at all. So we wanted to share just a few plus-size thrift stores that are showing us how to be thrifty, nifty, and stylish.
For your second-hand plus size store of dreams you need to check out Plus BKLYN, or, if you are in New York give their bricks and mortar store a visit. We love the eclectic mix of modern thrift, vintage, and new styles in sizes 14-30.
Portland-based plus size thrift store is a boutique and reseller of modern and vintage styles both online and their newly launched store. We love Fat Fancy's body-positive style sessions and the mystery boxes too!
This second-hand resale boutique, based in Rockford Ilinois is making giving your pre-loved clothes a second life on-trend. When you consign your clothes at Secondhand Curves they have a 90 day period to sell and you can get up to 50% back if they sell. After 90 days you can either choose to take your clothes back or donate them.

Plus Size Outfit Share

Fuller Figure Wardrobe
This trans-inclusive group for plus size women and non-binary people is a great online space for buying and selling your plus size pieces and well as sharing fashion advice within the plus size community. We love how inclusive the Fuller Figure Wardrobe group is and there are size restrictions.
If you’ve ever bought something that didn’t quite fit and it’s lived in your closet ever since, sell it on the Fat Too group on Facebook. The group for individuals only is for sizes 20+
