    Plus Size Bodysuits – They Exist! Here’s Where To Find Them

    Vogue is telling me that statement maxi skirts are going to be a thing this spring. As a maxi skirt (and bold statement piece) lover, I approve. This trend, pared with the 90s aesthetic that seems to be popping up everywhere these days, made me think of bodysuits (what better to wear with a statement skirt?). I thought plus size bodysuits would be difficult to find, but there are definitely some great designs out there. I present to you my finds from across the internet, across a range of price points as always. Enjoy! ASOS ASOS carries a wide variety of very affordable designs. Sizing varies across brands.

    Sometimes when I am preparing these posts I get surprised that, in 2023, we still don’t have a ton of options to choose from as plus-size consumers.

However, I have managed to find a number of retailers who carry a good selection of plus size pajamas, nightgowns, and robes. My finds are below. Thank you to one of my lovely readers for the suggestion to do a sleepwear blog post – I hope you find something you like! ASOS ASOS has a lot of designs to choose from at very affordable prices.…

    Where to Find Plus Size Activewear in 2023

    Some people are happy working out in old t-shirts and sweatpants. I am not one of those people. I prefer colourful designs that are fun to wear and that stand out at the gym. Fun activewear designs can be hard to find in plus size (if there are any entrepreneurial types reading this, we need more plus-size activewear brands on the market!) Luckily, I’ve uncovered more than 20 brands and boutiques where you can find what you need to get your sweat on. Enjoy your workout! Adidas Adidas carries fairly basic designs sporting their signature logo. You can buy Adidas directly online, but you can also often find it at…
