Anthropologie

Anthropologie is a next-level shopping Mecca that, for years, relegated us, plus size gals, to the Home section.  Many years ago I shopped there with my friends who “ohhhh’d” and “ahhhh’d” over their Anthro finds.  They tried on beautiful dresses and detailed delicate blouses.  And spent what felt like an eternity debating over which decadent pieces to splurge on.

Meanwhile, I sought out the now ubiquitous monogram mugs and contemplated earrings for such an inordinate amount of time that I was probably profiled as a shoplifter.  I’m sure you can all relate to those awkward moments wandering through a store in which nothing fits you and trying to kill time by browsing the handbags, repeatedly, for 45 minutes while your girlfriends have a ball in the dressing room.  Sigh.

So I have some good news and some bad news.   The good news is that Anthropologie now offers sizes 16W – 26W.  The bad news is that it is only available in about 10 brick and mortar stores.  So, we’ll still be shopping the Home section, ladies.  And of course, they are still quite pricey.  But, as I said a few times on Instagram, they are very high quality and worth the money, in my opinion, if you have it in the budget.

Loft

Loft now has a plus size collection in sizes 16 – 26.  It’s really good!

J.Crew

J.Crew is now available up to size 24 or 3X.  Unfortunately, not everything is available in plus sizes. [eye roll]  So the easiest way to shop their site is to filter items by size.  And be aware that their pants and jeans are sized by vanity waist sizing.  See the size chart below.

J.Crew Factory

J.Crew Factory is also now available in the same sizing as J.Crew.  Woot!

  1. Thanks for bringing us up to speed on the latest offerings in “plus size” (or, as I like to think of it – NORMAL) clothing. I’ve literally been begging Anthro for years to extend its sizes – even wrote a letter to the CEO once. Looking forward to seeing more in the stores.

  2. Lol you are so right about Anthropologie! And yes, they damn home section is where I spent an hour while my smaller friends shopped with glee. :/

  3. I found that J. Crew had plus one day and nearly fainted. I hadn’t had something from J. Crew since rugby shirts during college in the 90s. I find the sizing a little weird. I normally wear a 2x or 18/20 in shirts and a 20 in bottoms (though lately venturing a little into 22 depending on style), and the 2x tee I bought was really small. I bought a 22 pant after checking the size chart and I was glad I did…any smaller, and it would not have fit. Had to take back a few things, but kept a few too. It blows my mind to think what would happen if all of a sudden I had access to the same quantity of choices that “regular” sizes have…I am so used to buying what’s available.

    1. I so know what you mean about “buying what’s available.” Such a sad way to have to shop! I also hadn’t purchased anything from JCrew since the late 90s/early 2000s when I could wear their 16s. I used to just look at the catalogs for “inspiration,” but I think, in reality, it was just depressing. So hooray! Finally we’re seeing some equality!
