Anthropologie Plus Size?

Anthropologie Plus Size?

One fine Saturday afternoon after consulting with a client, I was waltzing down Fifth Avenue and I stumbled into Anthropologie. I usually go in Anthro for knick knacks for my house (they have the best candles and housewares) or a piece of jewelry. I perused the sale section and grabbed some pens, a cute notebook and some plates…but then something caught me from the corner of my eye. Lots of prints and textures in billowy fabrics hanging on a sale rack.

So I said eh, whatever. Let me just humor myself and try these on.

Lo and behold, I was standing in Anthropologie plus size and all, wearing a jumpsuit WITH ROOM. I was stunned! So I tried on about six more pieces and they all fit and I was ecstatic. I’d NEVER thought to come into Anthropologie and find clothes that actually worked for me. As IĀ always say, shopping is mind over matter. You just have to go into the store with an open mind and some patience.

Anthropologie Plus Size

Now in full disclosure, I’m a size 18/20 and an hourglass shape. I tried on pieces from the three brands below, so I know the material and I know they work for me and my body type.

Do you shop at Anthropologie? What are some of your favorite brands from Anthro?


  • Yes! I love this on you !!!!!This is the one I picked up. I’m the same size and shape as you ( not as perfectly) and I have been wearing Anthropologie for years. I just used my bday coupon and got a few jumpsuits. Most of my dishes are from there lol. So glad there’s others my size who don’t look at me like I’m crazy when I say the dress I’m wearing atm(it’s from two summers ago) is from Anthropologie. BTW what strapless bra are you using! I have a hard time finding them in my size.

  • I love that jumpsuit and really now makes me want to check out Anthropologie for the first time. Also, can I rave about the glasses. Those glasses are on fleek.

    Who made the jumpsuit! It’s fantastic!

    I just happened upon your blog. Totally by chance.
    I have to admit, I’m a bit taken aback by your endorsement of Anthropologie. Have you been to their website lately? Their models are soooo thin, they literally look malnurished, and probably would not be legally able to work in Europe, where they actually have laws against how thin models can be, due to reasonable and sane laws that aim to limit the damage to girls psyches when it comes to body image and eating.
    Look, I’m a big girl… always have been. Why would you want to, in any way, encourage retailers, designers and manufacturers that present fashions that only about 5% of American women and girls could ever hope to fit into?!? I mean, I have size ten feet and size 10 fingers: even if I was a literal skeleton, I couldn’t get a pair of Anthropologie jeans past my thighs!
    Check out Ann Taylor Loft, which just launched (I think) a new plus size line (still free shipping and returns or plus stuff). Or a fab site I just found called Sahalie that has lot’s of groovy, hippie chick stuff. Or, my go to site (I’m a bit of an outdoorsy type) Lands Ends, who make the best plus size bathing suit fashions in the world, with wicked sales all the time!!
    Please!! THe MAJORITY of women in the US are “plus size.” The majority!! Why should be settle? Put your money where it counts – at retailers and manufacturers that make beautiful, quality and fashionable clothes for real women of EVER size!!

    • @disqus_VBBIN71l7G:disqus I like to explore all retailers, and encourage my readers to do the same – especially at places they don’t traditionally think they can shop. If you look through my site, I do a very good job of “[putting my] money where it counts”. I support loads of smaller plus brands and independent plus designers. I invite you to look through the rest of my content before dropping inflammatory comments on my site.

      • Melissa H

        Holy cow! What the heck was “inflammatory” about my comments? That’s just such an odd and frankly, ridiculous, comment.
        I think I’ll skip browsing your site any further.

        • @disqus_VBBIN71l7G:disqus Being accusatory is inflammatory, as is associating me with things that are not true.

          • Melissa H

            Jesus, I hope you’re not depending on your blog to make a living. Your customer service skills truly suck.

          • Melissa H

            You censored my comments about your FASHION BLOG?!?
            Do you pay any attention to what’s going on in the world?
            Holy cow!
            Better go drop another thousand bucks at Anthropologie, you don’t want to be distracted by any unpleasant realities, or diverse opinion.
            Ne sure to flag me IMMEDIATELY.

          • @disqus_VBBIN71l7G:disqus you don’t want to do this with me. I’m very, VERY aware of what’s going on in the world. I’m also very in tune with myself and not allowing negativity in. have a great day.

          • Melissa H

            I actually do want to do this with you.
            I find overt censorship of diverse opinions pretty damn negative.
            And about plus size fashion?That’s just plain whacky! And shallow.
            Have a miserable day.

          • Melissa H

            Oh, and again, don’t forget to report me. No need to rush, I’m pretty sure NO ONE actually reads your posts. I was the first one in NINE MONTHS.

          • Melissa H

            OMG!! You’re a moderator!! Talk about abusing your position!!!
            I AM SO REPORTING YOU!!!
            I copied your BLATANT attempt to censor me regardless of the fact that I haven’t violated a single rule as outlined by the Hill!!
            You are just… outrageous!!

    It’s so hard to find a good store with plus-size clothes. The greatest so far is
