Sweater Wars: The Best Fall Sweaters That Won’t Add Bulk To Your Figure

There are few garments as warm, inviting and subtly sexy as a cozy sweater. It is practically one of the staples of the fall season uniform. However, as a plus size woman you may have a bit of a love/hate relationship to the sweater side of fall fashion because it can be challenging to find styles that flatter your figure.

Actually, there are many sweaters that make plus size figures look amazing without adding unnecessary bulk to your frame or giving you the appearance of looking shapeless. Since a majority of sweaters are oversized to enhance their comfy appeal, as a plus size woman you may want to opt for styles that are the exact opposite. Those that are fitted to the body, skimming the figure, are ideal if you don’t want to look like you’re drowning in tons of unnecessary fabric.

To set you on the right path to finding the best sweater to make you look (and feel) fabulous, we’ve put together a small yet efficient collection of styles that are equally trendy, flattering and, most of all, as comfortable as can be. Enjoy Ladies!
