[Looking at supersize / extended size clothing, which is to say, clothing I can wear. Preferably modeled by fat people]
After weeks of highs in the 70s and 80s we’re suddenly experiencing … fall. I even wore a sweater to work today.
I’ve been looking forward to sweater season this year. Suddenly I don’t worry about whether my bra’s cup seams show. Since my desk at work seems to be in a cold pocket of the office, I’ve kept a sweater at work for the summer which frequently ended up around my shoulders in the morning.
Now it’s colder. Considering I have enough sweaters (and cords and sweats) that I put most of them in the guest room closet for the summer I may not buy any this year, but I do like to look.
So I’m looking ;)
Plus Woman has a textured poly/rayon/acrylic a-line sweater in eggplant or navy for $69. Note it’s one of their “Made to Order” items, so you can choose the length (from 27″ to 40″) scoopneck or v-neck, and sleeve length. This can be a really good option if you want a particular fit. Plus Woman also has other, less customized sweaters from $34.
Plus Woman has its own sizing, ranging from an 18W-20W equivalent to a 38W-40W equivalent.
Over at Making it Big there’s the textured scoopneck sweater, complete with a little cellphone (or cardkey) pocket on the side. There’s also a cardigan version but it’s the scoopneck that I’ve been ogling for over a month now.
Both come in the rust or olive.
Why haven’t I ordered it? It is hand wash / lay flat to dry, which seems a bit excessive for a cotton/acrylic mix. Plus I already have a pile of sweaters, including a rust-colored (v-neck! cabled!) sweater, which makes shelling out another $99 a bit hard to explain to myself.
(No, I don’t want olive.)
Making it Big also has their own sizing, ranging from an 22W-24W equivalent to a 46W-48W equivalent.
