FIVE CANADIAN PLUS SIZE THRIFT STORES

Thrifting plus size clothing shouldn’t be hard – I’m here to help make it a little easier!

Shopping secondhand is a huge passion of mine. Anytime we need something for the house, need new clothing or want to add toys or books to our collection I head out to our local thrift stores to try and find it there first.

One big struggle for me has been trying to find clothing that fits me. Once your size passes a size M or L it becomes difficult to find pants and shirts that both fit and look great – and that aren’t from 20 years ago. So I did what I do best when I’m annoyed: I hit up the internet and searched for options because I knew there had to be something out there. 

Here are five Canadian plus size thrift shops you can shop ONLINE!
