I have never seen my girlfriend of almost 2 years in a dress. When we go shopping she shops in the men section. She is plus size but always makes an excuse that there are no good plus size clothing. I have also never seen her in make up but I don't make that a big deal. We were on the verge of breaking up after asking her to wear a dress for a wedding. She expects me to be okay with that. She wears nothing but t-shirts and one pair of capris. How can I get her to wear more womenly clothing without offending her? Am I asking too much? Do they make women clothing comfortable in general for plus size women?

No but you must say it delicately and tactfully1

I think this question has a number of levels - Can we tell someone what to wear, no but we can talk about clothing choices and maybe make suggestions without offending, hard to do but you should know her well after 2 years so you should think about how best to broach the subject.
The second level is the girl herself - Is she truly comfortable in what she wears or is it a self confidence issue because of her size - If you think that it is a confidence issue just encourage her by saying things like I think you would look good in a dress etc.
If it is just a comfort issue, you will have to try and accept her as she is.
Good luck in whatever you both decide to do,1
