Where can I find cute dresses (and cute clothes in general) in the curvy variety that won't break the bank?

I'm a curvy girl, in the middle of "fit" and "not-fit" if you will, and I find it really hard to find cute dresses at Forever 21/Charlotte Russe prices that actually cover my ass. A dress that would look cute on a skinny minnie would be cute on me too... until I start walking/sitting/picking things off the ground/living in general and it rides up my back and whoop there it is.
My issue is that the dresses for anyone size 12 and up are always more expensive because more fabric and blah blah (I call BS on that more fabric reason but that's me), at least where I have seen. I want to have lots of dresses/skirts at lower than mid-thigh but higher than knee length for work but I just don't have the money for it. For background, I'm a paid intern in Manhattan, trying to save up and move out of my Dad's house, so frivolously buying trendy clothes is not in my budget, sadly.
So question: Where can I find cute dresses (and cute clothes in general) in the curvy variety that won't break the bank?

What can our reader score some plus-size rags for not a million dollars? Any ideas?! Let her know in the comments!
