Plus size in Paris

I know "French Women Don't Get Fat", but was wondering if anyone knew of any shops in Paris that sell attractive plus size clothes.
I don't have the budget for designer clothes, but thought it would be fun to find a sweater or blouse in Paris. Thanks.

Here is a previous thread on the same topic: "Plus sizes in Paris? Looking to expand my wardrobe while in Paris but will shops carry my size?"

You may want to consider shopping accessories rather than clothing. Scarves, jewelry, handbags, and so forth, which will last a lifetime, versus a sweater or blouse.

Some budget-options. No designer-clothes, but pretty decent clothes for a reasanoble price:

www.c-et-a.fr : in the Netherlands they have a special plus-size collection, not in france I think, but I believ their regular size range goes up unitl 48-50, there is one on
Boulevard Haussmann (near Printemps and La Fayette)

www.ullapopken.fr ; a little but more upscale than C&A, but still very affordable. There is also one store on Boulevard Haussmann. Their size-range starts at size 44.

www.hm.com/fr ; they also have a plus-size collection 'BiB'. In Paris available on the Rue de Rivoli and in the Forum des Halles mall.

www.msmode.com/france ; very affordable clothes, their complete collection is available uo until size 54. Unfortunately no store in the city center of Paris, but there is one in the Centre Commercial Evry (www.evry2.com). Can be reached by RER D. Plus there are several stores all over France and Europe.

So their are some options in Paris. But you may have to look around a bit!

Two more stores (saw them on the internet, have not been there):

www.gianiforte.fr ; Rue de Sévres

www.rosetta.fr ; Rue Sedaine

Btw; I know these stores because when in Paris (or any other city) my wife likes to shop. And since she is plus-size to, we often look on the internet where the plus-size stores are!
