Plus Size shopping for the Trinbagonian thick gyal

Hey loves!! So this is my first blogging venture into anything remotely fashion related. But, I created this post out of a need for information based on my personal experiences.
As a plus size chic, and a former model, I, along with many other plus size women here in T&T, have experienced the frustration that often comes with going shopping for clothing but coming up empty handed because many stores don't carry anything over a size Large or XL. It got so bad, at least for me, that I would only buy my clothing online. Fortunately, in the past few years, we've seen the emergence of stores that cater solely for plus size, as well as stores that have increased their size range to include plus sizes. Here's a list of some of the places where we thick girls can find trendy goods at reasonable prices. 

Do note that clicking each store's name will take you to any of their Social Media platforms.
