Black Friday can get overwhelming very fast, with every email subject line yelling at you about their once-in-a-lifetime sales. So what is actually worth shopping? To help you sift through it all, I decided to pull together a comprehensive list of all my tried and true plus size favorites that are offering worthwhile promotions on items I can personally recommend. Read on for details, coupon codes (including a Curvily exclusive that is better than their Black Friday code!), and why each brand made the list:
11 Honoré If you’ve ever wanted more designer options in plus (ahem, #plussizeplease), then 11 Honoré will feel like a godsend no matter the day. If, like me, you love having designer options in plus but can’t quite swing full price, this 60% off sale is heaven. A few of my favorite designer dresses in plus are part of it, including this stunning ruched Veronica Beard gown I wore in Grenada, and my silk leopard Adam Lippes dress that I can’t stop wearing.
Baacal by Cynthia Vincent One of my very favorite new plus size brands, Baacal is the first plus size brand from industry great Cynthia Vincent, and she has made some of the pieces I wear more than anything in my [very sizable] wardrobe. Her gorgeous pieces make sustainable luxe, and sales are very rare, but the Black Friday sale offers some of my all-time faves, including the plaid car coat that I got last year and pulled out again the moment it wasn’t too ludicrously hot to wear it. Plaid is going to remain huge this season and beyond, and the lightweight wool crepe de chine can go from season to season, so this is a sale purchase you will get a lot of mileage from.
Chromat This is a sale you can truly feel good about shopping. In addition to always being ethically made and sustainably-minded, Chromat is giving back again this year: “Beginning Wednesday, November 27, use code Give20Get20 to receive 20% off at chromat.co. In return, we’ll donate 20% of the proceeds to support three organizations who are empowering our community: Power U Center for Social Change, Love the Everglades, and Pridelines” (more details about each organization on the Chromat blog).
Eloquii Every time I do an #inthefittingroom at Eloquii, I have a hard time not buying everything I put on. This season is one of their most fashion-forward yet, and has cemented them as one of my top five plus brands. And their holiday party dresses are absolutely FAB. For Black Friday, they are offering 50% off everything. I’m already filling my cart.
DL1961 For the longest time, there were no great options for high end plus size denim. dl1961 has been a game changer for me, and their jeans are amongst my most-worn pairs. For Black Friday, get 40% Off sitewide with the code FRIDAY40 (including my favorite wide leg cream cropped denim).
Curvy Kate If you have a full bust and are looking for cute and sexy bra options, UK label Curvy Kate should definitely be on your Black Friday agenda. With discounts up to 60% off their own line and their even vampier sister label Scantilly, you are sure to find something far more interesting than the usual basic nude and black we often get in full bust styles.
Second Sight I’ve been eyeing designer Kaelen Haworth’s label for a while, but after modeling for Second Sight earlier this year, I left completely enamored with the brand. These unique and high quality wardrobe boosters pretty much never go on sale, so this is definitely a great time to snag your first Second Sight piece (or your seventh!). They’ve also opened up the Second Sight archives, letting you shop previous Editions that are usually unavailable. Shop the newest Edition, 21, at 15% off; and shop Editions 13-20 at 25% off; Editions 01-12 at 50% off. And check out Edition 18 for more of me!).
Levi’s This classic denim label has started offering more plus size options, and their Black Friday sale is a rare 40% off sitewide deal with code INDIGO, including iconic cuts like their straight-leg Wedgie Jean in plus (aka THE best pair of high rise straight leg crops I’ve ever tried).
Henning Former Glamour editor Lauren Chan launched her label Henning for boss babes who want to radiate power and style, and the pieces are stunning IRL. This is the first major sale since her launch during NYFW, so if you are looking to majorly upgrade your work wardrobe, start here. (Sale through 12/2/19).
Cacique Plus size bras can be very pricey, and it is all too easy to rack up the $$$ as you shop (pun absolutely intended). So a Black Friday doorbuster special with all full price bras marked down to $25 is major. And it includes my gold standard sports bra that actually lets me run without painful bouncing (something no bra ever did for me before I found this one)! I own this high impact style in multiple colors, and am definitely eyeing this new strap detail metallic number with the same
Dia & Co. You might know them for their styling boxes, but Dia just launched their first full shop, so you can choose exactly which pieces you want to try. My favorite style of boyfriend jeans is from Dia’s in-house brand, and now you can get your own pair whenever you want (as long as they don’t sell out – some sizes are going fast!). Dia gave me a special discount for all my reader babes – and it is better than the Black Friday deal on the site! – so use code CURVILY40 from now until 12/3/19 for 40% off and free shipping on all Dia Shop purchases.
Tanya Taylor – Known for their beautiful cuts and unique prints (all created in house!), Tanya Taylor has quite an archive of fab dresses and separates, which makes the fact that they are opening their archives for the sale all the more exciting. The discounts of up to 70% off sure don’t hurt either. Enter your email address to get access to the Archive Sale, and sort by numeric size to find all the options available in plus (over 100 in sizes up to 22).
Anthropologie When Anthropologie launched their plus size line earlier this year, I didn’t know what to expect. They surprised me in the best way. The fit is great, and they are offering the same statement pieces they do in straight sizes. I never would have anticipated how much of my wardrobe would be Anthro, but I am loving it. And I am definitely about to shop this 30% off sitewide sale myself!
Savage X Fenty Rihanna’s lingerie brand has a Cyber Month 65% off sale for all new customers, which means bralettes for $7 and panties for $5. Their NYFW show was incredible and beautifully diverse, and they’ve recently expanded their bra sizes to serve more bodies too (with bands up to 42 and cup sizes up to H).
ASOS This trend-driven UK store has been a long-time favorite for fashion-forward plus size clothing (they were offering interesting plus size pieces WAY before the industry started to catch on), and their already reasonable prices are even better with 30% off sitewide. Use code BIG30 to shop their massive plus size section (5000+ items!), and don’t forget to check their very good wide width shoe section if you also appreciate some extra toe room.
Torrid When I went to their holiday preview earlier this year, I was head over heels for the collection, and now it is all available to shop and even better in person (I just got this red velvet number and feel like a total bombshell in it!) Even better? It is part of the sitewide 50% off everything Black Friday sale.
Tamara Malas Fashion-forward and utterly unique, Tamara Malas’ namesake label is what I wish more plus size fashion would be. Sales are rare, so Black Friday is the perfect time to buy her gorgeous designer clothes available in sizes 10-32.
