Best Wide and Extra Wide Shoes and Boots for Winter

Some of the most popular content on my blog since I first launched has always been that featuring wide and extra wide width shoes for women.  I can completely understand why… for YEARS I struggled big-time in this area and although I was able to find cute plus size clothes that fit my style… shoes were a completely different story.

Thankfully, in recent years more and more wide and extra wide width shoe options have become available to us, and I’ve spent a LOT Of time and energy figuring out which ones are worth our time and which ones aren’t.

In today’s post, I’m rounding up all of my favorite wide and extra wide width flats, sneakers, booties, and boots that’ll be perfect for cold weather.

Best Plus Size Jackets & Coats For Winter

Winter coats and jackets can be one of the most difficult things to find for plus size women, and I’m no exception.  I spent YEARS wearing inadequate coats that either didn’t fit well or weren’t warm enough in the coldest winter months.

When I moved to New York and spent a LOT more time outside during one winter working in Manhattan, I knew I had to figure out the coat situation… and I really started diving in and researching exactly what I needed to round out my winter wardrobe.

Now, living back in Kentucky and working from home instead of traipsing around NYC every day, I don’t require as much long-term cold weather protection, but it’s still important to have a variety of coats for different temperatures and occasions.

Today’s post features my absolute favorite coat styles that I wear on a daily basis when the temperatures drop.  I think these styles will work great for any plus size person looking to stay warm and look cute this winter.

Where to Buy Plus Size Workwear

Maybe I’m weird, but workwear is one of my favorite categories to shop.  Now that I don’t work in an office, I have fewer excuses to buy plus size workwear but I still love a good blazer, dress, or nice pair of slacks.

I know finding the perfect workwear can be difficult for people of all sizes, but it can be even harder when you’re plus size.

Not to mention… even figuring out what is/isn’t acceptable in your workplace can be overwhelming when you’re starting a new job.  In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with “over” dressing.  You know the saying… “dress for the job you want, not the job you have.”

I think it holds some weight.  Not to mention, it’s fun to dress up, especially when your dressy clothes are equally comfy.

If you follow Woman Within on social media or if you receive the brand’s catalogs, you may have seen a familiar face (AKA mine) on your screen or in your mailbox recently!  I know I write for a living, but I struggle to find the words to express how special this experience has been and how honored I am to lend my voice to the message Woman Within is sharing with the world with the “Every Body Is Beautiful” campaign.

In today’s post, I’m going to share with you a bit of info about the campaign and what it means to me, give you a “behind the scenes” of the photoshoot day, and I’ll share with you the pieces I wore from the Woman Within Spring/Summer collection in the campaign.

My Favorite Extended Plus Size Pajamas

I follow a lot of thin “lifestyle influencers” on Instagram and YouTube, and I always notice they wear the most luxurious, beautiful pajama sets.  Unfortunately, I can’t wear the ones they recommend because they don’t come in plus sizes but I always LOVE the way they look.

For months, I searched high and low for classic pajama sets that are available in plus sizes.  I found several cute options but ultimately landed on an incredible set from WomanWithin.com that are available in sizes 14-40!
