Both my teenaged daughters like to wear sweatshirts, but I can only find the shorter, fitted type in shops (Aeropostale, Victoria's Secret/PINK, Kohls, Target). I want to find some in an longer, baggy style. My older daughter likes the surfer girl, wearing-your-boyfriend's-sweatshirt look, and I like bigger sweatshirts for my younger daughter because they are more flattering on her.

I found this one at PacSun, but most of their other sweatshirts are shorter and tighter. It would be nice to find an assortment ... also some that aren't $90 for a zip-up hoodie!

Try casualmale, kingsize direct and some of the online stores for larger people.
The clothes might run too big for them but the smaller sizes may work.

After borrowing some of my hubby's for years, I now just get the smalls or mediums in the men's section.

Any flea markets in your area? they'll usually have a vendor selling all manner of that kind of clothing and it will probably cost much less than the major fashion chain stores..

Land's End has what I would call "normal" sweatshirts, in hoodie, zip and crew neck versions for about $25-$30.

That's what I was about to say. Not to mention, everything there is cheaper, which annoys the hell out of me. You'd think the poor things make less. Not to mention, they only need a few items!

Try Walgreens, they have a small section near the front of the store of cheap sweatshirts that are like 2 for $10 and a lot of them run really big, you might get lucky and they are also cheap.
