DD is age 11 and is overweight, she has lost 15 lbs (which makes her 5'3" and 145lbs and she was so excited to go to Aeropostle today and she could fit in some of their XL or XXL shirts.
The problem is that most teen type clothes are cut to be worn very tight and/or run very small.
She of course want to wear name brands now that she is in middle school. Where do you buy your larger teen girls clothes?
Thanks for your help!

JCP offers cute stuff...I know your dd is into name brands, but I don't know which of the hot brands offer special sizing.
Anyone know about Aero, AB&Fitch and the like? I don't think I've seen that sizing at these stores.

This is a jean finder, you have to put in your email address but my experience is they don't spam you.
You put in your size, length, height of the jeans you like, style ect and it gives you recommendations from lower priced to very high end.

I think Aeropostal uses really cheap fabrics which makes their things shrink and pull out of shape. Gap is better about sizing and fabrics. Some Old Navy things fit well and you probably have a Torrid but I doubt that your DD really needs plus sizes maybe just good fabrics and proper sizes.

Do you have a DEB store at your mall? I noticed that they have a pretty decent sized plus size jr's department.

Here is a link to get you started:
And I think the basics section would be good for her to choose from as well in this link:
Also, have you looked at the junior clothes in some stores? I think the cut is different from regular plus size clothing for women and designed for the teen girl.
One of the things that I have learned over the years about plus size clothing is to never worry about the stated size on a garment, look at how it fits the body instead.

Sears' Canyon River Blues comes in plus sizes and you can find a few cute shirts and lots of jeans in that line.
