Plus-sized women's clothing in Portland

Can anyone recommend plus-sized women's clothing stores in Portland? I'm coming in for an extended weekend visit with some friends, and I'd like to do some shopping while there. I'm looking for the local, independent business vs. the national chain. Thanks!

Hi Izrandall,

I don't know of any plus size women's stores in Portland, but I know there's one on route 1 in Damarascotta, about an hour's drive north. A bit far I know, but I pass by it all the time so thought I'd suggest it. Sorry, I can't remember the name of it off the top of my head. If it comes to me, I'll post back.

Meanwhile have a fun time in Portland and please report back if you get the chance :).

The name of the store is Women of Substance, here is a link to a nice article about the store. They are right on Upper Main Street in Damariscotta, might be worth a trip, I was in there once, the clothing is beautiful, a bit pricy but nice quality.
