Even though it may not feel it, but it is nearly spring and that means it is time for some good ol’ spring cleaning! This is a great time to clean out the clutter in our house because we can’t use the excuse of not being home enough.
Also, with spring cleaning, comes new wardrobes… clear up your closet to make room for some new spring/summer plus size fashion pieces! And after the few years that we have had, there may be some of us in need of a DEEEEEP cleaning of our closets… Right?
How does a little plus size consignment or resell sound like, to you?
It’s always nice to do a bit of spring cleaning and let go of pieces that either are no longer your style, or you no longer have a need for. Plus you are doing a great thing for the environment by extending the life of your clothing!

The power duo started having sales via Facebook Live once a month, which they also noticed had become a space that inspired women to get out of their comfort zone, trying new styles without breaking the bank. Their customers were interacting with them on a personal level, sharing their OOTDs and it became more than just selling clothing. It became a community.
Darlene and Sandra started referring to their customers as the BHCC squad and later created a private Facebook group to offer private flash sales and have a safe, non-judgmental place for the squad to share their outfit images and interact with each other.”
This group hosts FB lives to sell various plus size fashion options, all worn or owned by some of your favorite plus size influencers.
If you are a secondhand shopper like me, you know all too well the joy that is finding some gorgeous clothes for less than half the original price …. and in your size!
Give that gift to other beautiful plus size babes!
When it comes to quantity, the bigger resale sites are awesome for finding and selling your clothes with ease, but I encourage you to support smaller consignment shops like the ones in the list above, or even better… find one in your local area!
I am willing to bet you have an awesome secondhand shop that is looking to consign your clothes! And if you do not, we happen to know that more than a few of the plus size consignment locations do accept shipments! Yes, sending your items to them!
Just ask if they do… you never know!
What is your favorite place to resell your gently worn plus size clothes? We are always on the lookout for more places to amplify and support!
