You will see large Avenue retail stores in malls all over the U.S., and with good reason, for this plus and large size apparel company has so much to offer the plus size shopper. Like many women's clothing stores, this one focuses on style that can take you from work to home to bed without having to switch shopping loyalties. Their collections of work and career wear are purchased by thousands of plus size customers who appreciate style and well made clothing, and Avenue carries sizes 14-32, making it possible to buy what you need in your own size.

Avenue has a beautiful selection of clothing, and one of the outstanding collections is the lingerie. The only thing that gives on pause is the fact that the models, while certainly voluptuous, aren't exactly plus size models. But when you look at the shapewear, that doesn't matter as much as the absolute prettiness of the underwire body shaper in a satiny black fabric that makes it look like the ultimate in lingerie. Cute, lace trimmed panties in microfiber or cotton are perfect, and the smart shopper will check the Final Clearance department so no one misses a fabulous sale. The sleepwear is a bit more prosaic than the shapewear (which is totally hot), but it's still much nicer than anything you'd find at the plus size or full figure department of your local department store. Think lace camisoles and mesh nighties, with the occasional pair of cropped pants or maybe a nightshirt. Shapes are feminine and flattering, fabrics are soft and sexy.

If there isn't an Avenue store near you, you can still shop online or by catalog at this fine store for women with full figures. The collections are perfect for putting together outfits for work or play, and you can also shop for accessories like belts, and jewelry. The website lets you shop by outfit or collection, and you never have to hit the Back button. Skirts are especially pretty and available in different styles that are flattering and made in pretty linens, cottons and silks.

The test of any plus size apparel company is the swimsuit department. Avenue's bathing suits make good use of the skirtini, and some of the swim dresses are flattering too. There is a heavy emphasis on cover-ups, which many of us plus size shoppers are fine with.

Probably the best buys on the Avenue website are the pants. They come in all sorts of styles, perfect for the casual office or for yoga class. There are pants in linen, pinstripes, wide legs and cuffs. Prices are reasonable, and details and care instructions are provided on the site.

With the modern take on Sixties fashions, the beaded and Indian style tops and pants at Avenue are a big selling feature. Look for cute tunics in silk and embroidery, and check out the Editor's choice collection for up-to-the-minute fashions. If you're going on vacation, check out the Resort Wear collection, which contains capris in denim, linen or silk, and adorable tops. Jessica Simpson denim is featured, and you can find bootcut and classic jeans as well as denim skirs and capris. One of the finest things about the Avenue collections is the emphasis on color. Shapewear is black and very sexy, but many of the other clothes are luscious with color. Look for soft violet, lavender and pinks, even in apparel that's often drab, like jackets or trench coats. Cream colored linen pants are perfect with everything, and they've got them.

Avenue's shoe brand is Cloudwalker, and although there is a wide width section, footwear isn't emphasized the way it is at Chadwicks. Still, the shoes are cute, and if you have a medium width foot, you may find some cute sandals, pumps or loafers.

Look for discounts, or sign up for emails that will alert you to special sales or coupons. Most clothing stores have sales on shipping, which can cut twenty percent off the overall price of shopping by mail when you find a good one .
