Plus size shopping

My husband and I are going to be spending some time in Amsterdam, with day trips to other places, including Rotterdam and Antwerp. Does anyone know of shops that specialize in plus or queen size women's clothing? My style is business/casual but I like to have a few interesting bits and pieces to add flavor. Any ideas?

Sorry missed this earlier - there is a chain of shops calles Ulla Popken which have what you are after. Also H&M and M&S (not Marks and Spencer!) have plus sizes at cheaper prices. There are also smaller shops around. If you ook at http://gmm.holix.nl/noordholland.htm you can see the addresses of some in AMsterdam. For Rotterdam choose Z-Holland in the menu at the top, and for Antwerp choose winkels BE.

There's an Ulla Popken branch in Antwerp (Meirbrug) too, as well as M&S (Leysstraat).
Also check out Cora Kemperman (Schrijnwerkersstraat), Claudia Sträter (Meir), Paprika (Groenplaats Shopping Centre), Xandres X-Line (Leopoldstraat).
P&C (Meir) has several plus size brands (Samoon, Taifun, Atmos, Gerry Weber).
All are in Antwerp.

Thank you all for your help. This will make my shopping trips more fun and productive.

For those who have not heard "Queen size" I must be dating myself. It used to be a designation for us tall, Rubenesque women. Now we are just a plus, something a bit more special than the rest.
