Top 9 Plus Size Business Clothing Shops For Women

Hey – you are a plus size girl and want to look great for work? Good news, girl, good news: some excellent online retailers offer wonderful ranges of plus size business clothing women styles. I have put together the top 9 places to shop for plus-sized business clothing women, complete with a short review and direct links to the sites.

Specialized plus-sized clothing stores such as Torrid and Lane Bryant are great for trendy in-style business casual styles. In contrast, stores with a dedicated section for business clothing, such as Of Mercer or M.M.LaFleur, are great for formal office wear. Go to traditional retailers such as ASOS and Loft for some really cool business-style staples.

  1. Thanks for this recommendations, i like that you added their websites, available sizes and some other really important parameters, but please do you have more info about their return policies? Because i have friends that have had issues with vendors, they didn’t quite like the outfits shipped to them and they vendors didn’t have an encompassing return policy that covered that particular scenario, they ended up not wearing the dress and also not getting their money back. Thanks.

    • Hello Tosin, I am glad that my overview of Plus Size Business Clothing Shops For Women has been of interest. I understand the dilemma and dissatisfaction an insufficient return policy can create. Luckily, all of the shops featured have great return policies; you will find them in the description of each retailer under the point “Return Policy.” I will like directly to each shop’s policy for your convenience. I hope this helps! Kind Regards, Drea

  2. First let me say that I love the name of your website. As a work-from-home person, comfy is important. As a matter of fact, a lot of people are working from home, so I’m sure they can relate as well. We are huge Lands End devotees in our house. The clothes usually fit right, and many of their styles don’t change, so if you purchased a particular pant fabric/style and yours wore out, you can repurchase.

    • Hello Marsha, thank you for your comment! I think we all like a bit of comfy, when it comes to our business wardrobe and with our busy lives we also want a hazzle-free wadrobe that looks good, but is – yes – comfortable. Great to hear about your positive experience with the Lands End clothing range. I agree, they are a great brand of classic, well-fitted workwear – a good choice if you want your business outfits to last.

  3. I really loved reading through this article to see all the different retailers that have plus size business clothing for women.  What’s interesting to me is that you didn’t mention Target. The moment I read the first part of your article, I immediately thought of Target and the various new advertising they have specifically for plus size clothing for women.  I always admire the advertising, because I just like knowing that our world is evolving and expanding, and the idea of beauty isn’t so narrow as it was even 5 years ago.  

    • Hello Paul, ah I am happy that you enjoyed reading my article about Plus Size Business Clothing Shops For Women. Great to meet a man with a keen interest in women’s´ fashion :). 

      Good point about Target – they do have a great range of plus-size business clothing, and I particularly love that they include models of all sizes Into their campaign as a standard. On their website, right on the landing page, there is a “regular” mode land a plus-size model, and this shows on most pages of their website. I think that is fantastic. As my post focusses on business size business clothing for women, I have just checked out what they have in that respect. They do have some nice dresses that could be work appropriate. What I love on their site is the fact that you can select by “full figure” and “women´s plus,” so it gives you all the options in your size right there. I find Target´s range of plus size clothing to be more on the casual side; there are certainly some picks like dresses or a few tops that can be worn to work.

      So thanks for putting this retailer into the mix 🙂

      All the best, Drea
