Wardrobe Essentials for the Plus-Sized Professional

For years the fashion industry actively excluded plus-sized women, even though the average American woman is a size 14 and will soon be 16 or 18. It’s frustrating to walk into a store and lack options for workwear, formal, and even casual outfits because people don't seem to believe that bigger bodies are beautiful.


Plus-sized women have been offered bland, boring, ill-fitting clothes, not designed with our bodies and curves in mind. The same style for straight sizes, just made bigger, not smarter. It truly is disappointing to see such a want for choice; which is why Tukked Shirts offers stylish plus size blouses for sale.


Our tops are tailored to flatter our curves and to give you the support and comfort you need. We've taken the liberty of narrowing down some wardrobe essentials for the plus-sized professional:


A timelessly classic white shirt

White is the perfect workwear color that also happens to look extremely sophisticated. You can pair it with anything, and it works! That's why we offer a couple of varieties in white shirts, including this ruched long-sleeved button shirt and this gorgeous faux ¾ sleeve button down.



Pair it with dark pants, or a fun scarf, add on some jewelry, and you have a perfect look for meetings, lunch dates, and much more. Get your hands on these shirts that go all the way up to 3X.


The perfect pair of pants

Finding the right pants can be a herculean task, but it's one worth investing time and effort into. You should be able to move comfortably, including sit, walk and stand, as well as find a flattering fit for your curves.



Invest in a couple of pairs for work, that you can mix up through the workweek, and a few pairs of jeans in basic colors. The right pants can help you take over the world!

A fun, pastel pink top

Pink is always a lovely color that works for everyone. Pastel pink even more so, because you can easily wear it to work. Invest in this lovely pink top from our store for another wardrobe staple that allows gives you a mild splash of color.




A power suit

What's a work wardrobe without a suit, right? We'd recommend having a suit tailored to you, instead of buying off the rack. Or, if you do, have it altered to fit. This helps flatter your curves and fit you because plus-sized clothing also assumes height and other dimensions.


Make your tailor your best friend!



Shopping doesn't need to be a stressful task when done from the right places and for the right things. Focus on comfort and personal style and work these essentials to reflect you!
