On October 24, White House Black Market tossed their hat in the Plus Size ring with the release of a Plus Size line . According to the company, “From day one, White House Black Market has been about women — it’s a brand born of women, led by women and dedicated to serving women — so it was a natural fit to expand into Plus so they can make every woman feel confident and powerful to take on their day,” After viewing what they have to offer, I will say that they may be an up and coming contender in the Plus Size arena. Keep Scrolling for my top picks and details.
The Plus Size line is offered exclusively online (Insert eye roll) but it goes up to a size 24W , which translate to usually size 26 or even a smaller 28. The price range is lower to mid level range, with the most expensive piece being $226. the overall feel of the collection is definitely Fall and Holiday inspired.
Pros: I appreciated that they tapped into some of the current trends this season with the velvet, fall florals and reds. They also have multiple cuts of pants and not just one type of dress. The effort and true variety is refreshing. They also have a pretty good balance between standard , classic cuts and playfully styling the trends.
Cons: Some of the cuts were not aligned with the usual you expect from WHBM, which is more of a tailored polished look similar to Talbots. I'm also weary of some of the use of florals. I love the red rose print, but the other florals are honestly borderline scream "ugly big girl clothes".
Overall I am pleased that a quality brand like WHBM is offering more inclusive pieces for plus size women. This new trend of expanding into larger sizes, is promising to me and you should check out the rest of the pieces here. Let me know which one was your favorite.
