Plus size shops in NYC?

Hi Folks,

I'm going to be going to New York next week and was looking for some recommendations for plus sized (14+) women's shops in Manhattan.
I only have one day to go shopping, and so I need to restrict myself to Manhattan (i.e no nice trips out to Woodbury Common ;-)

I would be most appreciative for some advice on where to get an outfit suitable for a summer wedding!

I look forward to your responses.
Many thanks in advance,
SS x

Best selections are at the big department stores. Regular sizes go up to 16, for larger sizes look in the Women's Dept. My favorite is Lord & Taylor, on 5th Ave. at 39th St.

All the big stores have women's departments -- Macy's, Bloomingdale's, etc. Even discount stores like Loehmann's, Filene's and Daffy's.

You spend most of your time running and dieting, and just go a regular-sized shop afterwards.

Talbot's is a favorite. Some of their stores have plus size only, including petite plus. TJMaxx is also good, I think there is one near Union Square.

The TJMaxx you are thinking of is on 6th Ave around 18th Street in the same building as Bed Bath and Beyond and there is a Filene's there as well. There is also a Filenes nearby in Union Square. I think there are a couple of stores for larger sizes near the ESB and Macys on 34th Street between 5th and 6th Aves.

I appreciate the dry humour (re go running and diet)... but that was still a little mean.
