The virtual isles of the online shopping world can be a bit overwhelming to navigate. This remains true when discussing the R2-reader-favorite brand Nordstrom Rack. Nordstrom’s steeply discounted sister store is one of the few places on the internet with a wide selection of plus-size-friendly clothing options. Even so, it can be hard to sift through all the noise and find quality brands to focus on, so we've taken the opportunity to break down the best brands to look out for as a plus-size shopper at Nordstrom Rack. 

Read on to get the low down on some popular brands with solid plus-size-friendly offerings and shop enticing deals. Whether you're looking for the perfect pair of workout leggings, quality plus-size denim, or a sexy date night outfit, we've got you covered.

Kut From Kloth

Kut From Kloth is an affordable Los Angeles-based denim brand that crafts jeans for right under $100 at full price. The brand first got on our radar because R29 readers have raved about how comfortable the jeans are in our comments section. And since Nordstrom Rack deals in deep discounts, it's easy to find a pair of Kut From Kloth jeans for under $50.

Shop any of the eye-catching styles from its famous mesh knit pieces to dresses with the grooviest prints.


Melrose And Market

Melrose And Market has a very wide variety of offerings, from extravagant tops and dresses to casual, comfy separates.

Good American

Size Range: XXS-7X
What started as a denim brand co-owned by Khloe Kardashian has grown to be much more than that over the last 5 years. Good American has expanded over multiple categories, making it possible to shop head-to-toe easily. Although this brand occasionally comes under heat from the not so pretty things its infamous owner says, it's hard to deny that the sexy and sophisticated offerings aren't perfect for plenty of occasions, from vacation to a classic girls' night out.

Open Edit is another in-house brand that brings you classic pieces that can be dressed up or down. If you are looking to give off badass boss vibes, this brand's worth checking out.
