I super badly need more clothing for Yom Tov. I currently own three Shabbos tops that (sort of) fit me and two skirts. The newest of these is about 15 years old and they have all seen better days. Even these three are just barely fitting and don't look particularly nice on me. For medical reasons I recently gained a lot of weight and therefore fit into none of my other clothing. I don't want to spend too much on a new fat wardrobe because I do intend to lose a lot of weight after Pesach and will then hopefully fit again into the smaller clothing in my closet.

Anyway, here are my restrictions - I live OOT so I can't shop in person, I only wear long (for halachic reasons, only wear ankle length), and I'm on a tight budget, I really can't spend more than $150 on an outfit. That's like the uppermost limit. Again, I am hoping not to fit into this size for that much longer. I would love to buy a robe or two as well as a dress/top or two.

Any magic suggestions for me? I'm a real true 4x (not in Jewish sizes, which is closer to a 1x).

I'm a little confused about your comment re jewish stores being closer to 1x but here are some tried and true options.
https://oldnavy.gap.com/browse.....ntent ( I don't know if this is dressy enough but its pretty)
https://www.themimiboutique.co.....-ivee this isn't maxi length but it's affordable and pretty true to size, if you are a non-jewish 4x you would need a 5x
https://pashmina-collection.co.....08175 this runs full, I am a 2x in non jewish brands and a 3x in jewish brands and took a 1x, you'll probably need the 3x, it looks very pretty and flattering without the belt.
Good luck!

The Mimi Boutique has many dresses and short/tops and sizes all the way up to 4X. I live in Baltimore, but there e-commerce extremely active. I am plus size and I can personally attest to the wide range of options.

I meant that Jewish 4x clothing is not really 4x, it's closer to an actual 1x (and doesn't fit me).

For some reason I'm having a hard time posting links but there's great stuff in size 4x on shein.
Lots of options and elegant!
They have a very good filter!
Go to curves, filter by your size, long sleeves/3/4 sleeves, crew neck(or collar,tie or high neck) and elegant for shabbos/casual for weekdays.

Just wanted to come back and thank everyone for their suggestions.

I have tried non Jewish sites in the past - Torrid, lane Bryant, Shein, Amazon, and while I have found clothing that technically, fit they looked awful on me. The cut was all wrong, material cheap and flimsy so it didn't lay on me correctly, etc. I do much better with the frum companies, provided they have sizes that actually fit.

I especially am grateful for the recommendations of Riicfashion and Mimiboutique. I went on a shopping spree on both sites and now have a new wardrobe, of both Shabbos and weekday, coming for me in the mail. Davening that the clothing actually fits and looks nice on me!! (On Ricci I found a shirt I actually already own and love - in a size Large - that I now bought in a 4x. It's depressing, as that Large fit me only one year ago, but this is my current nissayon and I'm just glad that I was able to find some clothing that will hopefully fit nicely on me despite my current large size.

The only thing I'm still missing is a robe. If someone knows of a site that sells nice shabbos robes in size 4x I'd love to buy 1 or 2. (Not a maxi dress from Amazon or Shein, a genuine Jewish Shabbos robe.

Thanks!!1

I have no suggestions that have not been said but love what you chose. iyh they will arrive quickly and you should be happy with them.
without sounding patronising you sound like you have such a healthy approach to as you called it "this nissayon"

How does the sizing compare to department stores?

5 is like a 2x/3x in the non Jewish stores. Of course every item runs differently but this dress specifically is nice and flowy
