Nordstrom’s has a lot of decent dresses in their plus sized section (online).  Their in store selection is not nearly so comprehensive.

Have you thought about Lane Bryant?  They’re a strickly plus sized store and have great dresses that you can check out online or in the store.

Best part is if you buy the dress online and you don’t like it, you can return it at no charge and get a full refund at the store. 🙂

What exactly are you looking for? What is her size? Sometimes, (from personal experience) lane bryant’s stuff is just BAD. I’ve got tons of resources, I just need more to go from.

Nordstroms is great… Macys online also carries similar brands & they usually have many in the store as well. 

 

goodluck!

If you aren’t comfy asking her size, then it’s going to be a toughy to find something. See if your brother knows her size— I’m sure he’s seen her size on clothes at some point or another. You can find things up to a size 16  at Jcrew and Banana republic (both great places for things up to a 16)- but if she is larger than that (I am) you might want to try Old Navy online, lane bryant, & the avenue. Take her to david’s bridal- they have a decent selection of short dresses in a number of sizes… then this way at least you might be able to sneak a peak at her size.

But honestly, wouldn’t you rather she be comfortable than her outfit be something you liked versus something she liked, you know since she has to wear it and might want to try to wear it again???
