Plus Size Coats Up To Size 34

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

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.

Old Navy

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.

Forever 21

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!

Thank you for understanding that fat is not a four letter word and we do not have to be afraid of it. I’ve been fat all of my adult life and I’m nearly 60 I don’t anticipate it changing anytime soon. If you think it’s bad for looking for clothes now imagine what it was like for me in the 70s & the 80s. (And in Southern California no less). You may think that SoCal wouldn’t need fluffy puffy jackets but I travel for a living I was frequently in the winter in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Utah, Colorado, & lots of places where I needed a warm coat. And it’s not just winter time that causes these problems . What always frustrated me when I traveled was that all of my average size friends, if they forgot a swimsuit in the summertime, or in some locations all year long, could simply go to the gift shop and pick one up needless to say that isn’t an option for me I’ve since put a big sign inside of my luggage that says “Don’t forget your swimsuit.” I was kind of sorry to see Redcat disappear they were a wonderful catalog resource. But with more regular stores carrying more plus sizes I guess maybe they’re just wasn’t enough money and being exclusive anymore. For you younger set Torrid and had some quite beautiful clothes although they weren’t particularly discount. There seem to be several sites that are stealing photos from one another and selling goods they don’t have mainly from China and mainly not the exact same as the photographs they show on their site and quite a few of them have plus size clothing this blog that I found was fairly helpful in weeding out some of the negative sites. https://written

I was not fat and now I am. & I didn't know how impossible it was to find a winter coat that fit. I have outgrown XL and am a 2x, I guess. I went to so many stores this year, since my coat no longer fit. I needed a thrift store coat, but that was not happening. I did not have much to spend. It recently dropped into neg digits here and I had no coat at all ? Finally went thru like 50 coats on clearance at Seirra Trading post... not a single womens coat fit me. So I migrated to mens and found a mid thickness (not as warm as i wanted but better than nothing) mens woolrich XL and could zip it amd move my arms ans shoulders, so I am happy... Wish I had found this list earlier! Thank you for making this post!

Thank you for your website! I live in virginia beach and they seem to think we all want to look like grandmother's. Hugs my fabulous fellow fat girl :)

It should be spelled PHAT not Fat. Total different meaning especially if you want to sell your products!!!!! With that name I wouldn't buy anything. It's degrading.

Maria, you're on a website called FAT girl flow filled with pictures of a person (me) who continuously calls themselves fat. I don't know what you want from me.
