Check out Girlfriends LA. Although I've never actually bought anything from them, I love looking through the catalogue at all the cool clothes I COULD have. The websit is http://www.girlfriendsla.com.
Yeah, Girlfriends LA is great for nearly every body type. I have an old GFLA catalog here, and it has sizes from 0 (31-23-33) to 25 (50-42-52). Their models are actually real people, too, ranging from petite girls to plus-size girls on every page. Also their clothes are just adorable.

Ah yes, Torrid is great. Lane Bryant is also trying their darnedest to be appealing to the "younger" set -- stretchy, bright, glittery things galore. But if that's not your bag, you can also get all sorts of stapes there - white shirts, great jeans, jackets, skirts, and so on.
Torrid (http://www.torrid.com) is great if you live in the States, but I'm in Canada and unfortunitly we don't have a Hot Topic, or Torrid...
Penningtons (http://www.penningtons.con) has a line of clothing called 'Un Deux Trois' - for teens. Most of my clothing comes from there. It has sizes 14 to 52 and probably bigger. Here, you aren't restricted to those ugly straight legs jeans, with the elastic waist and no pockets... you can buy flares, tank tops, shorts, sweaters... all nice clothes that teens would wear, in plus sizes...
Just thought I'd bring that up for the Canadian girls out there...
Depending on what size you wear, even Old Navy might be helpful. I was there two days ago, and I saw some size 20s. And they run pretty normally. They had a huge sale. Old Navy is great if you're strapped for cash. Now I have to brag about my cheap-clothes finding abilities. For $47.50, I got 2 miniskirts- one dark denim with studs, one burgundy cordoroy (sp?), a pair of bootcut ultra low-rise jeans with a button fly, a lightweight dark red jacket, and a devil halloween costume for my doggy- he looks very adorable in it. Isn't that exiting? Maybe I have TOO much fun shopping without my mother present . . .
places like old navy have lots of cute things and delias catalog has almost all of their cloths up to size 17 i think i used to wear those sizes, and thats the places i would shop but i'm down to size 9 now but i still love those kinda stores. good luck, oh and the avenue and stores like that have a few cute things if you search or go when they have a new line out!
------------------ cause it feels so bad when you taking a drag and when your looking at the world through dying eyes when your staring it dead and your giving it head and all those things you say and love never come alive. IF IT FEELS SO BAD MAGICALLY ENOUGH FOR ME when your get so high that you wanna die but every thing around yous turning green when you get so low and i know you been feeling like a dryed up leaf in a summer breeze IF IT FEELS SO BAD MAGICALLY ENOUGH FOR ME
Hot Topic (http://hottopic.com) has some great clothes, but I don't know how they are with plus sizes. Last time I was i nthere, I found out my shirt size went down from extra large to plain 'ol large. ::groans:: I think I liked the extra large better.
------------------ It took so long to remember just what happened. I was so young and vestal then.
www.delias.comwww.alloy.com They've both made their clothes in bigger sizes. I don't have an Alloy catalog with me at the moment, but Delias goes from size 0 (31/23/33) to 19/20 (45/37/47), I don't know if that's a regular 19/20, but the clothes are super cute and not grossly expensive. And I'd like to put in a good word and say that I haven't had any problem with any of my orders or returning things either
