Creating A Great Plus Size Clothing Office Wardrobe

Women have had to fight for years to gain the success that they have achieved in the business world. And the same goes for the world of plus size fashion. It has only been in recent years that plus size clothing has become easy to find. Designers are finally creating all kinds of styles for curvy women in plus sizes. Now the challenge is to make a wardrobe full of stylish, professional clothing that you can use to dress to impress while on the job.

Regardless of whether you spend most of your day in the office or are traveling to business meetings all over the country, you want to always look your best. To do so, you will need to fill your closet with office plus size clothing that is comfortable, well-designed, and easy to care for.


Some women make the mistake of trying to fit into plus size clothing that is the wrong size for them. This is totally unflattering and will make you uncomfortable at work. Instead, choose well-fitting blouses, skirts, pants, and dresses that complement your form without being so tight that they restrict movement or comfort. If you are ordering a new outfit from an online store, be sure to consult their sizing chart before deciding which size to get.

Comfortable Plus Size Clothing


There are many plus size clothing designers, but you need to find those that have the best designs for your professional needs. Tunic tops, button-up blouses, and other tops that are made with high quality fabrics will last longer and look better at work. Choose garments made with fitted seams and adjustable features that you can use to complement your personal shape and style.

Plus Size Clothing for a Spring Transformation

Can you feel spring in the air? Slowly but surely, the weather is getting a bit warmer. Soon the snow will be melted, life and color will come back to the cold world, and spring will be in full bloom.

Spring is the perfect time for a plus size clothing transformation too.

The winter months usually find women bundling up under unflattering coats just trying to stay warm. I love to create layered outfits during the chilly months, but I truly embrace the change that comes with spring. What can you do to bring a fresh spring air to your wardrobe?

Color and Print

Perhaps the greatest transformation for spring is color. Dark coats, sweaters, and boots can be replaced with warm, bright pastels. If you are looking for some inspiration, all you have to do is look around you. As the flowers start blooming again you can get great ideas for new colors that will complement your complexion.

Plus Size Clothing Inspired by Spring

Besides bringing color into your spring wardrobe you can also introduce some lovely floral prints that are inspired by the season. If normal floral prints are not really your style, look for abstract floral designs in woman’s plus size clothing that take advantage of spring-themed colors and patterns in a more subtle way.

Apart from rose, lavender, peach, and other pastel colors spring is also the perfect season to bring white back into your wardrobe. Pastel tunics and tank tops look fabulous with white skirts and pants. If you are headed out to a special occasion, such as a garden party, try pairing a spring-inspired pastel cover-up with a white dress for a stunning look that is sure to get attention.

What’s the Scoop? Necklines for Plus Sizes

What’s the scoop?  Well that could mean – what is the news?, what flavor ice cream you like? or what’s is a scoop neckline.  I am going to be talking about Scoop necklines and that is my flavor of my news.  You know I do like a button-down collar shirt.  I find it classic and simple.  I can go anywhere with it.  I can also leave it unbutton and use it as a separate.  However this kind of neckline for plus size clothing is not very sexy or feminine.  What do you think?  Have you reached in your closet and selected a collar button-down shirt?  And then to your amazement or better judgement you said “NO” …… this is not right for this event.  So you turned to a scoop neckline?  I hope so because most plus size women have lovely necklines.  So why not show it off?

Scoop necklines can be dramatic or simple.  Depending on the event you are dressing for and the style of the plus size top — please choose correctly.  You don’t want to go to church with a deep and wide scoop neckline.  Most of the congregation will think you are competing for the pastor’s wife or even better a vote on the church board!  No.  Wear a higher scoop neckline and not too far away from the center of your shoulder.  I tend to like a length from the top of the collar to the bottom of the scoop to be about 7 1/2″.  Depending on your chest, if you are a bit gifted their and are a 2x or more maybe go for a 9 1/2″ neckline length.

Here are examples of 2 scoop necklines.  One the left is a higher case scoop neckline and on the right (designed by Generous Fashions) we see a lower case scoop neckline.  Both have their advantages.  Try to remember how you want to present yourself at the event you are attending.  It is so easy to make a fashion mistake.

Now go out there and find a scoop neckline that suits you best.  Let me know how you did!
