7 Plus Size Launches to Know



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 many of you can 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 several 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.


J.Crew is now available up to size 24 or 3X.  Unfortunately, not everything is available in plus sizes. 

So the easiest way to shop their site is to filter items by size.  But be aware that their pants and jeans are sized by vanity waist sizing.  See the size chart below. 

Notably, they have a new filter option, Re-Imagined, where you can search by sustainable, fair trade, organic, and recycled materials!

So for example, if you are a size 24, you will want to filter size 37 when shopping for jeans and pants.

I have found them to be true to size, but their tops can be a little short if you are tall or long-waisted. 

I think they need to better with their plus sizing, to be honest.

J.Crew Factory

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

One thing I have noticed about J.Crew Factory is that they don’t stock much quantity of their plus sizes.

So, if you see something you love at J.Crew Factory, I highly recommend buying it immediately as chances are it will not be available above an XL for very long.

J. Jill

J. Jill now carries sizes up to 4X or 26-28 on their website (up to 2X in stores), as well as tall and short lengths. 

Unfortunately, they do not use plus size models. [eye roll]



Madewell now has extended sizes, 16 – 24 or 3X. 

Their denim and pant sizing is comparable to J.Crew.

I find their site also difficult to shop as if you specify extended sizes, it will still show you items that don’t go beyond and XL. 

I have yet to figure this out, honestly.  Point being, sort by size, just as you would at J.Crew.


Reformation now has “extended sizes,” 14 – 22 or 3X. 

They have some truly beautiful pieces, especially their dresses!  And they actually show them on plus size models.

Worn by Meghan Markle, Jennifer Lawrence, Natalie Portman, Rihanna, Taylor Swift and more, Reformation is committed to reducing their carbon footprint and using sustainable fabrics, which you can read more about here.  

Tommy Hilfiger

Tommy Hilfiger’s plus size line goes up to size 24 or 3X but I also recommend sorting by size when shopping the website. 

That said, Macy’s carries a much larger selection of plus size Tommy.

  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!

  4. I am plus size on top and have been exploring websites for the past 10 years. A really good one is Full Beauty which also owns Jessica London, Roaman’s and Women Within. Check it out!

  5. Thank you for publishing this post. I’m always on the lookout for plus sizes. These are some of my favorite brands as well.

    But this part “Unfortunately, not everything is available in plus sizes and they do not use plus size models. [eye roll]”, made me laugh out loud. The eye roll.

  6. Loft will be discontinuing their plus line in the fall of 2021. They have beautiful, well made clothing, most of my wardrobe is Loft Plus. This is truly sad news!
