Are you a bigger guy looking for an ugly Christmas sweater?
Consider a plus size women’s vest!
Vests leave lots of room for your big manly shoulders and long arms. A button up or zip front vest can be worn open if it is too snug. And you can pair it up with a crazy turtleneck or if you don’t want to get too warm, a totally clashing t-shirt!
To find the perfect size, measure a shirt or sweater that fits you well, and then compare it to the measurements in the item description. We measure across the chest from underarm seam to underarm seam, then double that number. (If there are a range of numbers listed, that means the item is stretchy!) Length is measured down the middle of the back.
No time to measure? A good rule of thumb is a woman’s size is roughly one less than a man’s size. A Woman’s Large might fit a man who wears a Medium, and a Woman’s 4X might fit a man who wears 3XL.
Vests are usually even more generously cut, and as you get into the plus sizes (1X, 2X, 3X) you might find the sizes to correspond almost equally with men’s sizing.
