Friendly Neighborhood Reminder: There Aren’t Enough Oversized Fall Sweaters in Plus Sizes

If I had to pick my number one reason to love fall, it would be—without a doubt—sweater weather. There’s absolutely nothing better than feeling the crisp air on your face while you cozy up in an adorable and warm fall ensemble. However, in my never-ending quest for the perfect autumnal wardrobe, I have consistently noticed a lack of oversized fall sweaters in plus sizes. On some level, I understand the lack of this availability—In the past (and, TBH, today as well), plus-size women were told not to wear anything baggy or “unflattering,” which would, of course, include oversized pullover sweaters and cardigans. What I don’t understand, though, is how, in the year 2019, so few brands (including those exclusively carrying plus-size clothes) have stepped up their game to adapt to the oversized sweater trend?!

When my thin, straight-sized friends want to achieve the oversized sweater look, they typically just buy one or two sizes larger than their typical size. When your “typical size” is the largest one carried in a store—or not even available at all—how are you supposed to size up? I remember spending my teenage years searching for all the “oversized” clothing at Urban Outfitters and other brands that don’t carry above a size XL, just so I could maybe get the chic oversized look. Fast forward nearly 10 years, and I’m still searching—even when the brands are size-inclusive or specifically made in plus sizes. Moral of the story: Plus-size fall oversized sweaters shouldn’t be so hard to find.


I’ve made it my autumnal-wardrobe-loving mission to find all the cutest oversized fall sweaters in plus sizes that exist in this world. While I’ve had luck at both secondhand stores and classic retail stores alike, the options are (surprise, surprise) very limited. However, I rounded up some of my favorite plus-size oversized fall sweaters below, so you can achieve this trend that should be easily accessible for all.
