Shopping for clothes and shoes as plus size girl is far from fun. Most stores do not cater to sizes above 44, and the ones that do, they have decided that a girl with a few (or many) of extra kilos must be punished with baggy shirts and loveless designs. I know it because I have struggled with it for a LONG time, until shopping for clothes became a painful chore.

However, things are changing and horizons are widening (no pun intended). There has never been a better time than now to be a big girl as the inclusivity movement has ensured that we get a seat at the table too. Add to it women like Jameela Jamil and Ashley Graham, and life is almost good for a plus size fashion enthusiast. There are now more than a couple of stores in Berlin that carry bigger sizes, and I have listed them below (with sneak peak and addresses) for fellow curvy girls.

For those outside Berlin, almost all of them online stores as well, so you are welcome to join the party as well.
