Basically Herberger’s for other states. Not sure what the logic is.
Does not allow user to sort by size. Sizing up to 3x, much of it is for retirees and under $100 per piece, some trendier items.
JC Penney (US)
Plus size clothing for all ages; some stores actually offer two plus size sections for younger and older shoppers. Advertises clothing up to “34W” but offerings past 26 are extremely limited to the point of being unshoppable.

Lord and Taylor
Lists up to 28, generally stops at 22.

Advertises up to 26-28 but stops at 22-24. Does offer a “shop by shape” section, and while expensive, also has the Nordstrom Off the Rack store if you’re patient enough for clearance.
