Pros and cons
- Office-ready options. Find classy, professional clothing in your size.
- Lines for your busy lifestyle. You’ll find a selection of activewear and swimsuits that’s more extensive than competitors.
- Solid deals. Offers frequent discounts and a large clearance selection to save even more..
- Complicated returns policy. Strict guidelines forces customers to pay their own return shipping, and you risk the company donating your items if won’t accept them or can’t reach you.
- Limited sizing. Avenue’s focused on sizes 14 to 32 — so if you don’t fit that range, you’ll need to look elsewhere.
- Can be expensive. Items are pricey — many dresses are around $100, with the majority of items $50 or more.
Avenue is a great brand for plus-size women looking for timeless, classy statement pieces. But watch out for higher prices than competitors and a returns process that might require jumping through hoops.
