I'm old. So I remember that not so long ago, it was hard to find nerd clothes that looked good on women. Not just on women — PLUS SIZE women.
I used to have to settle for buying men's t-shirts. (Heck, sometimes I still do.) But the sleeves never hit me right and they sure didn't hug me in the right spots.
Times have changed. (Like I said — oooold.) Now you can't shake a wand without smacking into a store that carries at least a few geeky t-shirts. In fact, some stores are jam-packed with geeky goodness that not only fit plus size women, but make us look damn good.
I've been compiling this huge list of online stores for plus size women because I have trouble finding a single resource to use. I wanted one place where there were a bunch of stores listed. When I couldn't find one, I made one.
Now, I am an affiliate for some of these stores. That means I get a small commission if you buy something using these links. However, I'd be recommending these stores even if I weren't an affiliate. I wouldn't recommend a store I couldn't stand behind, y'know?
Some of these stores are just plus size clothes for women without a nerd factor. Because I actually wear normal clothes from time to time (gasp!).
The best stores for plus size nerds are listed in alphabetical order.

Curve Girl has a lot of dressy and upscale clothes, but they also have a great selection of nice-looking tops and bottoms. [affiliate]Curve Girl
I was surprised at how reasonably priced some of Dia&Co's items were. Some are expensive, but most aren't. [affiliate]Dia&Co
DressLily has just about everything you could ever want. They're REALLY great for holiday clothes. Quality varies. [affiliate]DressLily
Entertainment Earth has EVERYTHING. And I mean everything. As it happens, they also have clothing. Their Outlander collection changes frequently, as does other lines. However, you have to hunt to find XL and up.Shop Entertainment Earth
Can't find something in a regular store? Shop Etsy! Although sellers shouldn't technically be selling stuff without buying a license, some of them have very creative ways around trademarks. And so cute! Be sure to put the words PLUS SIZE in your search.Shop Etsy
I've only recently discovered Rose Gal and I love them! Quality clothes that are super flattering.Rose Gal
SuperHeroStuff has really unique things, and not just for superheroes. Sizing tends to run small. [affiliate]SuperHeroStuff
TeeTurtle has the CUTEST designs. They buy licenses to our favorite fandoms (Star Wars, Disney, etc.) and then turn out these adorable characters. Plus, their shirts go up to 3XL.Shop TeeTurtle
Torrid is, by far, my most favorite store for buying plus size nerd clothes. They're made well and they know how to snug a body good.Shop Torrid
The official Warner Bros. shop for Harry Potter stuff isn't fantastic, BUT it is “official.” They sell things that you won't find in other stores. Finding plus sizes is hit or miss. You have to “stay vigilant!”Shop Warner Bros.
I also found five terrific independent fashion designers that have plus size nerd clothes. Read my blog post about five plus size fashion designers for nerds.
