It's no secret that plus-size women are underserved by the fashion industry.
With limited retail and design choices, we have to get creative to dress fashionably. One option many of us overlook is the men's section. Straight-size women have worn so-called "boyfriend style" for ages. Since big and tall men's clothes have traditionally not been great, plus-size women didn't wade in the men's section waters.
But now that retailers are offering more modern plus-size men's clothes, that's slowly changing.
The coat SOLD OUT in many sizes after Brown posted the photo, and it's no longer carried in the ASOS plus-size men's section :(
I decided to check out what else is in the "big men" corner of ASOS.
After browsing ASOS for hours, this jacket caught my eye.
When clothes are barely made in your size, it's hard to find something baggy that hangs in way that says "chic" rather than "sloppy."
This sweater slid down my body without clinging or looking overly oversized.
It also reminded me that the "clothes for plus-size women cost more because you need more fabric" theory is complete bullshit.
