Do you find yourself perpetually struggling to find cute, on-trend clothes in your size that are also affordable? Do you want to be more thoughtful about your purchases and contribute less waste to the Earth? Or are you on the other side of the equation, have embraced the KonMarie Method and want to donate your gently worn clothing to a place where they won’t get lost in a sea of straight-sized clothes?

This list is for you! Here at AllGo, we’ve compiled a list of 37 plus size resale and consignment shops located throughout the U.S. or online where you can enter a thrift shop and know you’ll be able to try on more than that one outdated sweater buried in the rack. These stores cater exclusively to plus size customers. For specific size ranges, please visit the websites of each store. If you’re looking to offload your treasured gems, consider these shops to cater to customers similar in your size and make them excited to shop.

UPDATE: Due to popular demand, we’ve created a companion piece for this post to share details about plus size consignment events. To learn more or suggest an event to add, visit this page.

To find a store near you, please use the search function in the table below to put in the name of the city. If there are results, you’ll see the shops in that city highlighted when you scroll through the table. And if you’ve been to an awesome plus size resale or consignment shop we’ve missed, please add it to the form at the bottom of the page and we’ll keep the list continuously updated.

Happy shopping for clothes for all bodies!
