As we all know, women come in various shapes and sizes. The struggle to find clothing that not only fits and complements your figure is real. Some clothes are too tight, too big, too short, too long, or not flattering at all. It’s important to know that various designers create clothes with a certain “girl” in mind. Use these tips to find stores that are suitable for your body!

Petite: H&M, GAP

For the petite gals, H&M carries affordable and fashionable attire that can flatter your frame, and it always carries a variety. Also, H&M runs small or big depending on the item, but it shouldn’t be hard to find something flattering and fitting. GAP carries different tops, jeans, and pants that cater to a petite woman.

Tall: American Eagle, GAP

For the tall ladies, American Eagle usually has clothing to fit those extra long legs and arms. The clothing usually fits well and since fall is coming, people can appreciate the extra long sleeves and long pant legs. GAP also has clothing designed for tall women, so maybe some of you petite and tall gals can go shop at the GAP together!

Curvy: Macy’s, ASOS curve

Macy’s has a wide variety of clothing for all shapes and sizes, so the more curvy ladies, should definitely check it out. The go-to retailer has all types of dresses and skirts that flatter beautiful curves. If you’re feeling international, you can shop online at ASOS, the UK's largest independent online fashion and beauty retailer, which has tons of stylish clothing for everyone and an ASOS curve section dedicated to a curvaceous woman.

Plus-Size: Torrid, Forever 21

Torrid has become pretty popular and calls itself “the destination for trendy plus-size fashion and accessories.” Here you can find everything from dresses to lingerie, so no one should go home empty-handed. If you don’t like Torrid, you can always try Forever 21. Forever 21 has stepped up its game and added a plus size section, which carries pretty much anything you need. Everything looks so stylish and flattering, not boring or grandma-like.

Super-Skinny: Zara, Express

Last, but certainly not least, the super-skinny ladies! Zara is a great store. They carry clothing for different body types that will flatter the very thin lady as well. Their clothes are sophisticated and chic and if you’re feeling bold, throw on some heels and strut the concrete! Express carries super skinny clothing, and its smallest size is an extra extra small, so it should be relatively easy to find the right size.

Ladies, these are some great options for all shapes and sizes. Where are some of your favorite places to shop for your size?
