Online Shopping for Plus Size Women in South Africa

Online Shoping for Plus Size Women - By Megan Kelly

I am a huge fan of online shopping – I mean, who isn’t? I can be sitting in front of my heater, hot chocolate in hand, while scrolling through the hottest sales. But something that has become crazily frustrating is how few South African online stores stock items for plus size women. So, today, I am sharing some of my favourite online stores, to shop plus size clothing.

1. Zando

Zando Plus Size Clothing - By Megan Kelly

It comes as no surprise that Zando features on this list especially as I purchase 90% of my plus size clothing from them. All of my purchases from Zando have been such great quality, good fits and always impeccable service. From plus size jeans, dresses and coats, Zando is home to them all. I love that their range is broad enough to suit anyone’s personal style, budget, and lifestyle. Besides their great customer service, it is refreshing to find an online store that offers both affordable and luxury plus size fashion. Best of all, I can also shop beauty, accessories, and shoes, all from the same place!

Pricing: R149 – R1099

Size Availability: Up to size 46

Delivery Fee: FREE!

2. Spree

Spree Plus Size Fashion - By Megan Kelly

It’s been ages since I browsed through Spree’s plus size section, and I am really glad that I did. Their offering has grown signifcantly and I love that they have started to include more budget friendly items. They seem to have a lot more clothes than most plus size ranges (like, they have EVERYTHING!), and feature designers who specialize in plus size clothing, which is something that I value, as often I buy plus size clothing and the brand assumes just because I have thick thighs, I have long legs (I don’t, I am short AF!). I already have my eye on more than half of their offering and will probably need to uninstall the app very soon, (before my credit card burns a hole in my pocket!) Spree has always been great with their customer service and after recently seeing the quality of their maternity clothes, I am keen to get my shop on, from their incredible plus size range.

Pricing: R99 – R2400

Size Availability: Up to size 48

Delivery Fee: Free on orders over R250

3. Lee Bex

Lee Bex Plus Size Fashion - By Megan Kelly

I am a HUGE fan of Thickleeyonce – it is refreshing having a South African woman of color who is using her social platforms to empower women. Her body positivity is inspiring, not to mention her drive and ambition – she’s just a badass, and also one of the founders of Lee Bex. Although I haven’t yet made my first purchase, I am super keen on adding a few of her pieces to my wardrobe. Lee Bex is a range of clothing that aims to inspire women to own their curves, making them an unstoppable force. Their clothing is usually made in limited quantities so keep an eye on their Instagram, and act quick! Support these local entrepreneurs, while rocking clothes made for your body!

Pricing: R300 – R850

4. Superbalist

While their range is extremely limited, Superbalist has some cute plus size pieces at mid-range prices. I have purchased from them before and found the sizing to be a great fit with quality that has lasted for more than 2 years already! Again, they don’t have the biggest range but the clothes that are on offer are gorgeous for a girl’s night out, formal events or date night – they’re fun, flirty and sexy!

Pricing: R399 – R699

Size Availability: Up to size UK 24

Delivery Fee: FREE!
