Belgium EN

Hey Girls,

Let me share with you where i mostly shop in Belgium. I always go to the same places to be sure to find my  favorite brands.

So first of all Brussels:

I often go to the Westland shopping center.

I always pop in the plus size stores present there:

M&S Mode, Paprika, New Look, C&A and Toscane Armand thierry. I Also check out the Veritas for accessories. Loads of shoe stores .

How to get there by bus from different subwaystops:

     stib
46  Moortebeek – De Brouckère
75  Bon Air – CERIA
89  Westland Shopping – Heysel
                                              de lijn
                            116 Bruxelles-Chapelle – Itterbeek – Ternat
117 Bruxelles-Chapelle – Itterbeek – Dilbeek Rondenbos
118 Bruxelles-Chapelle – Itterbeek – Schepdaal
571 Halle – Sint-Pieters-Leeuw – Anderlecht – Dilbeek (scolaire)
572 Halle – Anderlecht – Dilbeek – Zellik (bus scolaire)

Brussles city center:

If i go into the city center i start at the top of the Rue Neuve, the shoppingstreet in Brussels. You can find an Ulla Popken, Paprika(one in city 2 and one lower in the street), M&S Mode, C&A. Not a lot of shops but do check out the Inno. Especially when there are sales! You can find mayerline, Anne Harvey, Melvin, Xandres xl,Elena Miro and much more. Also very nice lingerie from f.ex. simone Perele, Triumph,….

On the ‘place de la monnaie’ you’ll find a Damart store. Very annoying that several brands just banned their plus size range like F21 did in their stores in Brussels.

Meanwhile, the F21 has burned down and will soon be replaced by Primark(10/12/2014). I hope they will sell the same sizes as at the UK stores.

Primark, Nieuwsstraat 15 – 1000 Brussels. Near metro station De Brouckère.

Open from 9.30 – 19u (mon – sat) and till 20u on fridays.

Another nice little shop behind the Halles Saint Geri in the Rue Pletinckx # 14 is TABOO. Not for all styles but very nice place. Good advice and opportunity to make alterations or custom made garments.

You can shop on Louiselane but those shops are quite expensive. So not that much to shop at in Brussels for us curvy girls.

How to get there:

Take the subway and get out at stop Rogier (top of street) or Debrouckère(end of street).Not so many shops as you can see; that’s why i usually buy my clothes abroad or on the internet.

To go to louise get off at hte station with the same name ‘Louise’.

What about shopping in Antwerp?

I also sometimes go to Antwerp on the MEIR to go to F21 where they have the plus size range. They have almost the same stores as in the Rue Neuve. I also go to the Wijnegem shopping center where all previous mentioned shops are also represented.

How to get there:

Shopping Wijnegem

From the south (Brussels) by car

Take the E19 towards Antwerp. On the Antwerp ring road, take exit E34-E313 (direction of Hasselt / Liege), then take the first exit (No. 18) Wommelgem / Wijnegem / Mortsel. Continue towards Wijnegem. The shop is located 1 km from the right side of the road.

In public transport, take the train to Antwerp Central, where you can easily take the bus lines 410, 411 or 412.

Line 410. Turnhout Antwerp (this bus runs during peak hours and passes the Quarter Hours).

Line 411. Antwerp – Zandhoven.

Line 412. Antwerp – Schilde – Sint Job in t Goor.

Antwerp (Meir)

Take the train to Antwerp Central. Exit the station and walk along the Keyserlei that takes you directly to the Meir. Barely a 10 minute walk.

Billion Dollar Babes

Address: Oudaan 31-32 Antwerp. 5 minute walk from the Meir and plenty of little shops over there.

Grimbergen

Evolve

Great store in Grimbergen. Very large selection of different brands. A little pricey but very interesting during sales !!

EVOLVE PASTOOR Woutersstraat 8-1850 GRIMBERGEN – TEL 02 265 36 94 – info@evolveplus.be

  1. Oh dear, you made my day. I’m going to move to Antwerp soon and I was afraid I won’t be able to find good plus size shops there. Many thanks for sharing this information.

    • And from antwerp you also can take the train to eindhoven or another dutch town to go shop xxxxHope you’ll have a great time here xxxx

  2. You should add nr.4 to your list. Check them out on http://www.nr4.be. They are located outside city centres and have a wealth of different brands in cheaper to more exclusive. They are part of E5 mode groupe. They sell also the Libelle XL collection as E5 mode is doing.
