where to find stylish plus-size suits for workHere’s a topic we haven’t addressed in a while that seems apt since we just did our big roundup of the best women’s suits in 2018: where to find stylish plus-size suits for work? Plus-size readers, please chime in — which are your favorite stores to buy plus-size workwear, from dresses to blazers to suits? (We’re actually working on a story on plus-size splurges and investment shopping — please share any favorites if you have them!) We haven’t talked about this since we did our last roundup of plus-size suits and more (including business maternity suits, petite suits, and suits for tall women) or the best workwear for plus sizes.

  • Of Mercer – They offer extended sizes up to 20W
  • Universal Standard – they don’t really have traditional suits with matching pieces, but their Executive Workwear Kit is worth checking out (sizes up to 28W) – note that with their new Fit Liberty line you can exchange pieces if you change sizes

  1. Hoping some commenters will share where they get their professional size 30/32 clothes.

  2. This is great. I’ve never heard of some of these places before, so I’m looking forward to checking them out!

  3. WriterKate :

    Kat, this is the BEST round up you have ever done for plus sizes. I haven’t heard of many of these and am so excited by the options I’m seeing. As a size 16-18 who is 5/2″ I haven’t had this many options in YEARS! And an aside for readers – MML now offers one of the new suiting jackets in additional sizes.

  4. If you’re up to about a size 20 and in the mood to splurge, 11 Honoré has some nice work-appropriate pieces. https://11honore.com/

  5. White House/Black Market began offering plus sizes about 6 months ago!
