[Looking at supersize / extended size clothing which is to say, clothing I can wear. Preferably modeled by fat people.]
Mostly with the virtual window shopping I’ve been looking at women’s clothes that I could wear* and that I think are really really nifty. This week it’s stuff I could wear, like enough to wear, and have nifty prices — under $25.
One Stop Plus:
Print knit tunic to 5X, $14.88.
Thermal Henley shirts in gray and chocolate to 6X, $11.99.
Knit drawstring pants in 3 lengths with pockets to 6X, $12.99-$21.99
Dressy skirt in red to 34W, $17.99.
Jean jacket to 34W, $19.99.
Knit sleepshirt to 7X/8X, $15.99
Rib knit tank swimsuit to 6X, $14.99
“Dream. Laugh. Live.” and “Life Is Too Important To Be Taken Seriously” v-neck t-shirts to 5X and 6X, $9.99
Print skirt to 6X, $19.95
Fleece barn jacket to 6X, $19.95
Tennis skirt in closeout colors to 6X, $14.95
V-neck long-sleeve tee to 7X, $13.99.
You’ll want them if it snows: Fleece sweatpants to size 6X in 3 lengths, $16.88-24.99.
Most of this stuff is pretty casual. Partly it’s because my job lets me dress casually (and that’s something I do look for when interviewing) but partly it’s because a lot of the dressier stuff is not available in my size or at the target price.
*For the purposes of this series I assume anything 4X+ has a chance of fitting. Sizing varies depending on manufacturer and cut, plus, sometimes I’m in an oversized mood and sometimes I’m not.
I’ve also seen 4X to be translated as 34/36W, 30/32W, AND 26/28W. Toss in that I’ve seen both 28W and 34W marked for a 58″ bust (again from different manufacturers) and I understand why a common eBay convention is to measure a shirt’s width while it’s laid flat on a table!
