As the great-grandsons of Lena Bryant (founder of the ubiquitous plus-size chain Lane Bryant), owners Nick and Michael Kaplan had some big shoes to fill when he set out to create “an H&M or a Forever 21 for plus sizes.” By the looks of Fashion to Figure’s Bronx and Brooklyn locations, he’s succeeded pretty well. The stores stock the usual array of trendy gear typical of fast-fashion chains: cheetah-print T-shirts ($20), crochet cardigans ($20) and knit scarves with sequins ($9), and bangles, rings and necklaces ($8–$20) made to fit larger fingers and wrists. There are also plenty of bargain threads (starting at size 12) for those with more-grown-up tastes, including a floral button-down blouse ($28) and a print maxidress ($36–$40).
