My suggestion would be to take her to the adult petite sections of
department stores and buy larger sizes.

A preteen girl who is larger than a 16 would probably be more
comfortable in clothing designed for adolescent girls, since heavy
preteen girls often have some breast development which would make
children's sizes too tight across the chest and back.

You can order an online directory specifically designed for plus-size
teens here, at a cost of $9.95:

"The Plus Size Teen Directory is primarily an online Directory that
lists companies/websites that specialize in clothing & resources for
plus size teens. Some of these websites also have paper catalogs which
they will send you."

The today show just has a segment on this topic and I just wanted to
share with you the website they highlighted.  Good luck with your back

Size Appeal-

Torrid - there own label and many mainstream designers

Tommy - size 14-24

Alight - all teen!
