Guest Post: How to find large-sized clothes


Clothes for large men and women are not easy to find because most apparel stores concentrate on selling clothes of average sizes only for obvious reasons. In the US, extra large for women means having a bust of over 41.5″, waist of over 33.5″ and hips of over 44″. For men, it means having a chest of 45″ or above, waist of 38″ or above and hips of 44″ or above. However, large sizes are usually categorized as XL, XXL and XXXL clothes. Some apparel manufacturers even have categories like 4XL, 8XL and 10 XL, which can be really confusing for the uninitiated.


While there may be a store or two in your area where you can find large clothes, the best place to find one is in an online apparel store. There are many websites that specialize in clothes for large men and women of every brand you can think of. You won’t have to search for hours and shift through mounds of clothes as everything is available within seconds at the click of the mouse button. This is what makes online shopping such a fun experience.


When buying clothes in an online store, you should know your size or have a measuring tape ready by your side. Although the dimensions for L, XL and XXL are uniform across manufacturers, different manufactures may have slightly different interpretations for larger sizes like XXXL, 4XL and 10 XL. Therefore, the best thing to do is to measure your neck, chest, waist, hips, thighs and sleeves and match the results with the sizes given in the chart. The websites usually have a size chart.


Sizes like XL and XXXL apply to all kinds of clothes, including shirts, sweaters, jumpers, trousers and large size coats. Hats, gloves and shoes have their own sizes. For hats, you have to measure around the largest part of your head; for gloves or mitts, you have to measure around flat of your hand at the knuckles; and for shoes, you have to measure the length and width of your foot at their longest and widest points and then look up the charts to find the right size.


Online apparel stores have made it so easy to find the right sized clothes that you no longer need to spend hours trying out clothes in a store. You can also custom-order tailored clothes in case you are not able to find the right size. All you need to do is measure your dimensions, fill out the online order form and pay with your credit/debit card. The merchandize will be delivered to your doorsteps neatly packed within days.


Finally, what you will really love about shopping in online clothing stores is that they have various promotions and discount schemes going on throughout the year. You won’t have to wait for Christmas Sale, New Year Sale or any other special occasion. Also, it doesn’t really matter where you are because you can order the clothes from anywhere in the world. Some online stores make delivery to over a hundred countries around the world.
