As promised here a list with the plus size shops i visited in Amsterdam
Just near the central station you find the Nieuwendijkstraat – kalverstraat.
The H&M on the right streetside has a plus size range till 54. Not very big but nice stuff.
There’s also a C&A in the street.
At the end of the street (part kalverstraat) you find the shop V&D. Not to expensive but not so much choice.
I didn’t find Etam and M&S that once were in this street with a plus size range :-(. Do go into the shops and try stuff on cause it seems several shops have L and XL. Loads of shoes too in this street!
-Take metro 54 at the central station direction Gein2 (16 min/10 stops)
Miss Etam Bijlmerplein 139 1102DB Amsterdam www.missetam.nl
-Take tram 24 VU medisch centrum at the Dam square (10 min/ 6 stops)
Get off at the stop Albert Cuypstraat.
In this street there’s a famous market with loads of clothing, food, and so much more till 5pm. In the same street you’ll find 2 plus size stores

How to get there?
It’s only a 3 hour drive from Brussels but you’re better off in the weekend to take the train (no parking hassle). Its also 3 hours but the weekend tickets are at 24E and you arrive and leave at the time you want!
