Finding the Perfect Plus Size Fit

Our focus is your fit - At On the Plus Side, our focus is exclusively plus and upper plus size women's clothing.
We make it a priority to design based on plus size proportions not a generic "size". We have studied the plus size woman's body for over 30 years and have created our own unique sizing system to reflect that expertise. Our fit is specifically engineered to be the best fit, feel and look for your body!
  • Our sizes are 1X, 2X, 3X, 4X, 5X, 6X, 7X, and 8X (18W to 48W equivalent)
  • Measurements on our size chart reflect body measurements and are not the actual garment measurements
  • Each size has ease* built in for comfort and the amount of ease will vary by style. For example, "Oversize" garments will have additional ease and offer our roomiest fit. (*EASE is a pattern making factor used to allow extra fabric so the garment will not fit tightly.)
  • Order within the range of your measurements rather than choosing a larger size
