The lovely people at Racked NY asked me to show them the best plus size shopping in NYC. Little did I know I’d find three pairs of shoes in my size and Eileen Fisher harem pants at 93% off.

Even in a city as large as NYC, there are very few plus size store options for shopping, much less last minute occasion wear. In other words, if you need an outfit for tomorrow you’re quite possibly screwed. I wore a beaded sweatshirt by ELOQUII (already sold out) and the Studio Midi Skirt (now available in sizes 26 & 28), my studded Docs (a Nordstrom Rack find) and my Gorjana ear crawlers (already sold out).

Ready to get your shop on? These are my happy places.

2Rigby & Peller (5th Avenue)

I’ve visited a lot of “bra fit specialists” in NYC, and for the most part, my appointments have ended poorly. Rigby & Peller has been one of the few places where I’ve consistently had great experiences, and where I know I can find my two favorite brands – Elomi and Panache. The 5th Avenue store was calm, organized, and well-stocked.
