Looking Good in Winter Wear

plus size winter clothing

An important part of middle age plus size clothing choices includes a stylish winter coat and other winter wear. If there is a particular style you are looking for, just because you need a plus size does not mean it doesn’t exist.

The perfect winter coat is out there, you just need to know how to look for it. Some of the coat styles plus size women have to choose from include:

  • Hooded
  • Layered
  • Extra heavy
  • Ski
  • Down
  • Parka

Whichever style you choose, accessories can add that little something special you are looking for. Some additional items you can add include boots, hats, and scarves.

When you are looking for a winter coat, there are few factors to pay attention to. If you are trying on a winter coat, wear a sweater that you would wear during colder months. This helps when you are trying on coats to help ensure it fits over your normal wear. When a coat is too small you will not be able to close it comfortably around your bust.

Also, standing and sitting in the coat can be a good indication that the coat is fitting properly. You want to find a coat that will hide your problem areas, not showcase them.


Stephen, Your Designer

“There is an amazing feeling of artistic accomplishment when all the parts come together into one harmonious aesthetic. It's a connection with who you are and the elements you choose to express yourself visually. This is what making clothing is all about for me. It's like when a songwriter hears his first written notes from a voice or a baker who has practiced a recipe and nails it or a figure skater who exceeds her own expectations. I express my sense of art in clothing. I see things in color, shape and texture. I react to the touch of silk on my skin and my eyes are aware of how color combinations make me feel. My goal is to bring all of these intuitive notions to garments that are sized for larger women. If I can accomplish this then I have reached my goal.” – Stephen
