I like B and Lu for trendy pieces that are fairly inexpensive, like this bohemian cotton Hampton Top for $38.00 USD. As of now, they are still available in sizes 1X, 2X and 5X.

Love this plus size Ombre Short Sleeve Top by Tommy Hilfiger. The faded cotton modal fabric is soft and comfortable. Smocking at the scoop neckline adds visual interest and texture. $44.50 USD at Macys.com.

Check out this cute Textured Jersey Tunic
from JMS.com. It looks like they had this in more sizes but have only sizes 1X and 2X left. Right now when you buy 1 selected casualwear item, you can get a second for 50% off. Sweet!

Today, I took a trip to a j.jill store to check out some of the items that I have seen online. I ordered some nice tops while I was there, because if you use their concierge service, shipping is free. I also bought a few items off the rack because, as it turns out, their XL is cut rather generously compared to lots of other retailers. One of the things I got was this Pima Cotton Elbow Tee. It comes in 7 dreamy j.jill colors in plus sizes 1X - 4X and a nicely proportioned XL.

The new Greek Chic collection at eShakti.com is available in plus and custom sizes, and I really love this Beaded Sash Waist Jersey Blouse. This empire waist, hip length beaded silk chiffon sash blouse is so creative and fun. Perfect for summer parties and going out at night. Available in plus sizes 1X - 3X, or custom for only $10 extra. $59.95 USD

I'm looking forward to trying one of these Organic Cotton Crossover Tees
from Jjill.com. I bought a few in a similar style from LB a few years back and I really loved them. They're just a little nicer than a plain old tee, and I like to wear something with a little detail to it, even if I'm just hanging out in Mommyville. These are available in size 1X - 4X in 4 dreamy Jjill colors.

More than just a plain black top, this plus size Flutter Sleeve Top has a beautiful, feminine, deep scoop neckline and gossamer, flowing short sleeves. Available in sizes 1X - 3X for $78.00 USD. Also comes in a pink abstract print and a powder blue floral print.

Yesterday, I went to Lane Bryant and bought one of these Bold Floral Tops.
I am not generally in love with polyester, but this one is the cool, silky variety, not the hot, sticky variety. Anyway, the smocking on the sleeve and hem are really subtle and do not add a ton of ruffles and bulk. The neckline is not too low, and the waist area is not too clingy. An overall nice easy fit in a fun, bright fabric that is very 'in' this season. Available in sizes 14/16 - 26/28 for $44.50 USD.
