OUR COMMITMENT TO
PLUS-SIZE WOMEN

Long before it became fashionable to cater to plus sizes, a smart enterprising woman named Catherine Weaver opened a small store in Memphis. The year was 1960. As a full-figured woman, Catherine hoped to bring style, beauty and confidence to a like-minded clientele whose fashion choices were decidedly limited.


Today, with more than 400 locations, along with catherines.com, Catherines continues to fulfill its promise as the fashion and fit authority for sizes 16W-34W and 0X-5X. But we're far more than just a place to shop. At Catherines, we seek to engage, connect, inform and inspire the women we serve—woman who want to look and feel beautiful in clothes that truly fit.


Where else will you find a comfortable, customized fit that always flatters. Quality,
ultra-soft fabrics that feel just right. And versatile must-haves that give you endless wardrobe possibilities.


But it's our relationship with you that really sets Catherines apart. Warm and genuine. Attentive to your needs. We're the brand you trust to always fit you beautifully.
