This N.J.-based company was founded in 1989 and carries clothing up to size 14. They have weathered some challenges in recent years: A girl's t-shirt with a questionable anti-math phrase printed on it and their clothing was being made in the Bangladesh factory that collapsed last year. They have since beefed up their social-responsibility standards.

RUNNERS-UP: Gymboree, Nicole's for Children
