Default Web sites for shopping on-line

I have not been pleased with the selections at my usual haunts, so could you wonderful ladies please pass on suggestions for some on-line sites for plus-sized fashions. I usually shop Dillard's, Macy's, etc. Don't know if its the buyers or me, but several of my friends have made the same comments. Thanks for any suggestions.

I'll go back to my previously admitted addiction--Coldwater Creek. They offer almost all of their clothes in plus-size, and their online outlet has AMAZING bargains

coldwatercreek.com

I agree with Desdemona.
Coldwater Creek is one of the best sites to shop.
Especially their outlet.

Just place my first (I hope of many) order with Coldwater Creek. Got confirmation of shipping. Now to wait for the arrival and try on. Nothing from the outlet hit me but did have a $25 off $100 coupon. Gotta love that! Am plus size and was impressed with selection.

they really hook you because once you've placed an order they will email you $25 off $100 coupons on at least a weekly basis. This is one of the few places that I've found that will let you use discount coupons on outlet merchandise.

Coldwater Creek is amazing, the quality is fantastic.
I am not sure but i think that Talbots carries plus sizes. Talbots has quality classic clothing.

One thing else about Coldwater Creek, I am a member of a shopping site (ebates.com free to join!) and when I shop thru there I get a rebate on purchases from member stores, and for Coldwater it is 4%. Not much at once but over time the rebates add up. Since I've joined received almost #$184 back, get a check every 4 months.

Good luck with that! I go through the website and choose things that I think I might want, with every intention of deleting half of them when I get to the checkout phase.......I guess you know how well that works!

Are the coupons in their magazines or are they by e-mail? My DF says she shops online OFTEN but has never gotten a coupon, other than by mail with the catalog. Are there others?

I get emails from them, usually 2-3 times a week, most with coupons. I also have found the coupons in pull-out sections of women's magazines, such as Good Housekeeping and More. I would suggest that your DF go back to their website and make sure that she gave them her correct email address and that she clicked *yes* to the question about wanting to receive emails and offers from them

Thanks, I will pass the information on to my DF and I will be sure to check all the correct boxes for myself!

The coupon I used my sisterinlaw gave me But when I went into Coldwater Creek thru ebates.com there was a pop up with a coupon code for $25 off $100. That is one nice thing about ebates, if the store is having any kind of promotion then a small pop-up opens with any and all promotions..

If any of you want I can send you an email offer to open an account with ebates (my email add is in my profile so you can send me your name and email add) and once you open and make one purchase from any store thru them you will get $5 just for doing so. Of course I will also get $5 for you doing it.

The way I figure is if there is a way for me to save even a little on my purchases each time I shop why not.

Default Web Sites for Shopping on Line

I haven't shopped on line, but I do like catalogs incljuding Coldwater Creek. They have a store about 30 minutes from me, but they mostly carry regular sizes.

I still like Bloomies and Neiman Marcus catalogs best, the latter for sales only. NM is expensive!
