“If you want to stand out and embrace your personal style, Eshakti.com is your BFF! This company boasts … having sizes 0-32, and that’s not it! You can even customize every piece that you order from them; from altering the length of a dress, switching the sleeves and much more. I love their variety, and they mainly offer classic pieces with a trendy touch, which is perfect for the modern woman who wants to celebrate her personal style! Some of my favorite pieces are from Eshakti!” — Follow Tatiana on Instagram @totallytot3

“One of my favorite places to shop in the city is SWABY, which now has two locations! Designer Shernett Swaby (a former Project Runway Canada contestant) has multiple collections that cover every facet of your lifestyle, from casual wear and office attire to avant garde pieces and evening gowns. The beauty of it all is that Shernett not only provides high-quality clothing and leather accessories made by her own hands, but that she also offers complimentary alterations on everything, for the life of the item.” — Follow Nikia on Instagram @chitown_fashion
Natalie from Natalie in the City
“I’m in a weird spot between wanting to still dress edgy, but also being a working professional. So I bounce around from Forever 21 to TJ Maxx to Torrid a lot. I love Forever 21 because there are three locations in the city, and every store has a robust plus size section. Eloquii will be opening a pop up shop in August* at The Shops at North Bridge, and I cannot wait. Although it’s only available online now, Eloquii is where I do most of my shopping. So you can catch me there as soon as the brand opens its doors!” — Follow Natalie on Instagram @nataliexcraig *Note: The Eloquii pop-up has opened since this piece was reported. Enjoy!
Amber from Style Plus Curves
“If you love the modern look of high-end designer brands like Theory, Vince, and Celine, you will be obsessed with Universal Standard. Finally, the modern, minimalist aesthetic is available in sizes 10-28! Their pieces are impeccably designed and so chic. The plus size woman who has always craved elevated, minimalist style will obsess over their sleek designs and luxe fabrics. And they just debuted their ‘Universal Fit Liberty’ policy, which means if you go up or down in size within a year of purchasing something, they will replace it in your new size! The Geneva Dress, the Cutaway Sleeve Tee and the Unity Cutaway Skirt are some of my favorites!” — Follow Amber on Instagram @stylepluscurves
