Plus Size Clothing For Women Frequently Asked Questions

Below you will find some frequently asked questions that will help you shop our plus size line.

What Type of Clothing Works for Each Plus Size Shape? 

  • Hourglass Body Shape - The waist is the focal point for ladies with an hourglass body shape, characterized by a bust and hips that are about the same width. A woman with an hourglass body shape looks great in wrap dresses, tops with belts, or ties to accentuate her waist.
  • Apple Body Shape - Apple body shapes are characterized by a larger bust and broader shoulders with a less defined waistline. If you have slimmer legs and hips, seek flared pants. Flare jeans and flowy maxi skirts are the perfect options for this body type. 
  • Pear Body Shape - Ladies with a pear body shape have a narrower upper body and a more prominent bottom and a well-defined waistline. Wear plunging necklines like V-necks or bright colors to emphasize your upper body.
  • Inverted Triangle Body Shape - The inverted triangle body shape is known for its broader shoulders and busts with narrower hips and waist. If you have athletic or muscular shoulders, rock fun patterns or try color-blocking to balance out your shape. You’ll find plenty of exciting patterns and pretty colors with our plus size activewear for both workout clothes and athleisure clothing you can wear anywhere.
  • Rectangle Body Shape - Women with rectangular body shape have a straight and athletic figure. Go for clothing that will emphasize curves like high-waisted jeans or a ruffled top. Check out our plus size women's jeans and plus size sweaters for bottoms and tops that will fit your rectangle body shape best.

What is considered a plus sized woman?

At one point, the fashion industry considered plus size models to be anyone larger than a size 6. Today, you’ll find most plus size models are about sizes 12/14 or higher, bringing the fashion industry up to date with what counts as plus size more in line with that of the general public. It’s important to remember that large women's fashion sizes range across regions and brands, and at Lands’ End, we believe in promoting inclusivity and body positivity no matter your clothing size.

Is 2X larger than XXL?

Many people confuse 2X with XXL and vice versa, but there is a difference. They both refer to large clothing sizes but the size 2X implies that the size is twice as large as the “standard” size while XXL means the size is extra, extra-large. For example, if a “standard” size is considered a “medium,” then 2X would be twice the size of a medium while XL means extra-large and XXL means extra, extra-large.

How Can I Get the Most Flattering Fit as a Larger Woman? 

Here are some tips to keep in mind to get the most flattering fit as a large woman. Choose the right size for your body shape, opt for clothes that are better suited for your natural frame, and get clothing that is neither too tight nor too loose. Emphasize your assets by choosing clothing that shows off or accentuates your favorite parts like cinched welts for defined waists or skirts and dresses for shapely legs. Experiment with different colors and patterns like vertical stripes and smaller prints for a lengthening effect.

What does XL stand for? 

XL means that a size is extra-large, commonly used for clothing sizes that are bigger than regular or standard sizes. XL is typically a size larger than L or “large,” and it’s designed to fit people with larger builds or body sizes. The XL size is best for anyone who requires more room and a looser fit compared to smaller sizes.
