    Catherine's is one. (There is a shop across from Milennia Mall in the BJ's plaza).

    Avenue is another.

    In any good department store, or places like Beall's there will be a "women's section" that will have larger sizes. Dillards, J.C. Penney, Macy's, Bloomingdale's, ect.

    Even Walmart has some large sizes (a good place for underwear). :D

    Hope that helps.

    Fashion Bug has also been carrying some larger sizes. In fact, their smallest size now is a six (and they go up from their), as they use to carry a size 0....seriously, who is as size zero?!?! I don't like seeing a size 0, it's bad on my self-esteem.

    Dress Barn, too. Dress Barn for Women is the one with the larger sizes.

    I have shopped at Dress Barn in the past (they are quite popular in the south), and they have some lovely things....but do they *have* to call it Dress BARN? Really?

    I've had better luck with Catherines. Esp for work clothing. I swear Lane Bryant think we are all 20 and going out to a club.

    I know, right? Sheesh.

    I have a hard time finding clothes in general. I can't stand anything other than natural fibers (or blends that are mostly natural) and it's very hard to find anything anymore.

    Forgot to mention two other places, Ross and Marshall's. They both have sections with larger sizes. I'm not a fan of either shop as I've not found anything good in them. However, many people do like shopping there and get very lucky. They are off price shops that pick up their merchandise from sell outs, over runs, unsold merchandise, from other stores.
