Summertime At Catherine’s: Living (And Dressing) Is Easy

Summer styles at Catherine's are hard to ignore when you're looking at extreme savings and generous, trend-conscious designs. Here at, we are in love with Catherine's and know that it's one of the best places to go for cool, sophisticated plus-size clothes.

Today, we’re looking at just a few of the reasons why we love Catherine’s:


Of course, it's exciting to know that you're scooping up something that pushes the envelope on "typical" plus-size fashion… but there's also way more to consider: does it look ok after a few wears, will it continue to flatter, does it need to be dry-cleaned? These are all essential details that can affect your bottom line, and considerations that Catherine's has taken to heart after more than a half-century of selling plus sizes.

A Regular Stream of New Arrivals

Some shops seem to keep the same pieces in the “new-to-store” section, so it isn't even worth checking each month. This isn't the case with Catherine's, which always has fresh looks in stock. Right now, there are tons of off-the-shoulder dresses, sweet frocks, patterned maxis and more just waiting to be scooped up.

Smart Swimwear

Browsing plus-size swimwear can be a confusing experience. Some of it is staid, other times, it simply doesn’t go big enough… and yet, all we want is to be able to scoop up the options and really make the most of them, not struggle with odd-fitting bikinis or one-pieces that look grandmotherly. And that’s where Catherine's gets it right -- there’s an acceptable balance. Browsing the swim shop now, we see more than a fabulous sale… we see polka-dotted swimdresses with a vintage vibe, cool fringed cover-ups, and swim skirts with a ruffled, flowing look.

Budget-Friendly Options

If you only own a couple pairs of jeans and pencil skirts, that’s OK! We have spotted a lot of budget-friendly clothes at Catherine’s, which give you the option to spruce up your wardrobe and never feel guilty about how much you’ve spent. One example is the texture top, which you can tuck into a skirt or wear loose with jeans, shorts, or leggings. Another option is the Astoria Shirt, which has fun rolled-up sleeves and a sensible, longer hemline. Close behind these winners are the button-down blouses in lightweight fabrics.

Casual Dresses

Plus-size dresses need to have a certain amount of “give” to them, delivered by either fabric or style, and they need to be designed by a company that understands a full figure. Some plus clothes pull at the arms or gap at the waist, or they don’t take into account that we’re not all 6’ tall. Catherine’s gets it, and that’s why the Marina View Dress and the Solano Dress are so popular. And you can’t beat the price!
