For plus size sister check these:





I am plus sized, hate my arms and have had luck at all of these places.  Your sister might like torrid because it is a plus spinoff of Hot Topic.

I also just had luck at the Bettie Page store  www.bettiepage.com – 50’s style, but available in plus sizes.


Now for Grandma:  

Again I suggest dressbarn.com (they have “regular” size section as well.)






Good Luck

i’m just curious as to why you’re asking your sister to take out her piercings and cover her tattoos?  i’d be pretty upset with my sister asking the same of me.  is she in the wedding?

aside from that, everything @bridget.sutter has posted is pretty much what i would suggest.

I also agree with the 1950’s style for your sister. There are some plus-sized swing dresses that are AMAZING!


As for your grandma…well, that’s just too cute to bear. I’ve never had a grandma but now I want one!

for grandma, my mom really wanted pants as well.  Alfred Angelo actually offers separates – which means for whatever top they show, she should be able to order pants as the bottom half.  I think there are two styles – i found this link that shows the options: http://www.thewasonline.com/cart/catalog/images/alfred_angelo_skirt_styles.jpg

Check out their mothers collection – my mom ended up choosing #7157 as her top.  The crinkle chiffon items only come in limited colors (and do go see them in person, somewhere – they are very different online vs. in person!).  But the satin & chiffon options come in almost the full range of AA colors. 

Hope this helps!

@MrsKtobee: You may also want to check out Forever 21 online, they have a Forever 21+ plus size division with many cute dresses. Macy’s has a junior plus size department in some stores and they have it online as well. Both have lots of cute, age appropriate dresses! Almost forgore, one other place is Nordstrom Rack online, they have tons of pretty dresses that are not dowdy in the womens-plus size section. Good luck!
