I live in Seattle and winter is approaching, which means rain. Often it seems to just mist rather than rain and I hate umbrellas. I have one of those short packable rain jackets from Land's End, but I would like to invest in a thigh-length waterproof jacket of some sort, preferably not too warm. I'm about an 18 on top and 24 on bottom, which makes long-coat-shopping difficult. Have you seen anything which might fit my needs?
I have three letters for you: Q V C. I'm not kidding. When I was looking for a jacket earlier in the season, I was blown away by all of the outerwear options on the QVC website. And pretty much everything on the site is available in sizes up to 3X.
Given your sizes, I'd look for an A line cut and order by my top size. That will fit a lot better than going by your hip size and hoping for the best on top. The Dennis Basso line has a lot of really great jackets and coats so search for that name to see more. Some of the jackets are water resistant. The one pictured here is water repellent for $50, the item number is A71079.
And you know what else is really great? There's a section for each item where customers can write reviews. I love that because it says to me that QVC stands behind the quality of their products.
I was wondering if you ever came across good ski clothes - especially pants. I have a ski trip coming up and I'm amazed at the lack of info out there for plus size ski clothes.
Head on over to Junonia. They have all kinds of plus size active wear, including three styles of ski pants and a whole bunch of jackets. Swoosh!
Have a question? You know what to do.
