Black Friday will soon be upon us, and if you’ve done your research you’ll be well prepared to make the most of some of the year’s biggest sales. So now that you know how to shop for Black Friday deals, you’ll need to know where to shop.
Unfortunately many of the major retailers taking part in Black Friday and Cyber Monday won’t have great plus size shopping, and even if they do it sometimes isn’t included in the sale. So we turned to some of our favourite plus size bloggers to find out where they will be heading this Black Friday and where they think we’ll be able to get the best deals.
1 – Ashley Stewart
This year Ashley Stewart are running an ‘Online only Holiday Dash’ which now features up to 40% off certain full-price items, as well as online ‘Web Buster’ bargains starting from as little as $10.
2 – Avenue
Avenue is one brand that is not afraid to discount. With tops and dresses that are available up to size 32, and bottoms and jeans up to size 36 while in stock, it’s worthwhile checking them out. There are flash sales of 50% online and even 30% off clearance items, this is a brand to follow in the build-up to Black Friday.

Catherine’s have started its countdown clock to Black Friday already, and you can pick up Buy One Get One Free deals now.
