I swear I haven’t owned a plus size coat in at least 10 years. There’s something special about fat girl coat shopping, as in I’m pretty sure manufacturers have decided that me and my belly will stay warm during the winter months without one. Every year I tell myself that I’ll get a coat, and I always end up missing the most awesome sledding days because the task was just too daunting.
Look ya’ll, I know a coat is just there to keep me warm but I still want it to be cute! Fitting my arms into it and doing some outdoor activities in the snow would also be a major bonus. So I hunted them down. And I curated a little list for you. Happy plus size coat shopping you beautiful fat babes!!!
Universal Standard is… well, the standard in beautiful plus size clothing that’s high quality and feels luxe to wear. Their coat styles come in beautiful colors, up to size 40, starting around $150.
There are always great sales on Avenue, and they have a huge variety (check out their wide calf boots!). Sizes go up to 32, and prices start around $40.
I’ve recently been really into Old Navy, because damn it they’re just so consistent. I always know I’ll be able to find a classic, yet hip style and for plus size coats that’s the best I can ask for. But it gets even better when you find out how cheap their outerwear is! Sizes up to 4x, and prices starting at right around $45.
The absolute best place to go for funky, unique styles of coats. Who doesn’t need a coat with a kitty on it? Sizes go up to 4x and prices start around $100.
It’s just all so unbelievably cheap! Who needs down feather lining when your coat only costs $35? Ok, I might because I live in the midwest and snow is no joke. But dang, these coats are cute as hell! Sizes up to 3x.
There’s of course tons of options on Amazon, but a couple of my favorites are actually from the big and tall men’s section (like this sherpa lined men’s Levi’s jacket). Prices start around $30 and sizes go up to 32.
If you’re an outdoorsy babe REI is a great bet for your plus size coat needs! Their in house REI Co-op brand is well made and goes to 3x, with prices starting around $75.
That’s a lot of coats right there! A few other vendors you may want to check out include Target, SimplyBe, and Catherine’s. Where did you find your winter coat this year? How has your experience been while coat shopping? Let me know in the comments! Happy shopping!
