Insomniac Sale Picks: Plus-sized White Shirts

*In this new late-night feature – which will run Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

AnnePR requested a few picks for plus-sized white shirts, so here we go:

 Jones New York Shirt With Pleat and Ruffle – was $79, now $59.99

Ruffles can get overwhelming pretty quickly, but this detailing is subtle and a bit more on the tuxedo-y side. My JNY pieces are top-notch, and several plus-sized clients are dedicated to this brand. I can imagine this shirt peeking out from a colorful cardigan or classic black blazer and looking chic as can be!

Foxcroft Three Quarter Sleeve Shirticon – was $69, now $45.90

This pared-down shirt is reviewed as being a bit on the boxy side, so it would likely work best for casual looks and/or for body types and comfort levels that prefer a looser fit. The three-quarter sleeves draw the eye to the waistline, which will mitigate some of the boxiness. Goes to a US 24 and comes in a washed red and blue as well.

Alfani Three Quarter Sleeve Pintucked Shirt – was $44.98, now $42.98

Since this shirt has Designated Boob Room, that waist-defining pintucking may backfire on certain figures. But if you’ve got a smaller bust and are looking for a subtle way to get some shaping into your white shirt, this could be a great solution. Available through size 20.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for great plus-sized white shirts:

  1. Macy’sThis style is a great, classic basic and available to 3x/size 24.
  2. Old NavyThis one is only available in a 1x, but a great basic option, too. The site has several other offerings, and rotates them seasonally.
  3. Avenue – With 75 blouses on offer, many of them white, there are loads of great options.

    Could you please tell me if there are any rules about wearing a white shirt (or any shirt) tucked in or left out? I just bought a Ralph Lauren white shirt (with ruffles) with the bottom shaped mostly like your first picture and I wasn’t sure if I could wear it out. Thanks. Love your blog!

      Hi Ann! If there are rules, I don’t follow them. I think it’s generally easier to wear untucked white shirts with pants, since they can be long and generally make more flattering proportions with pants. But I’ve worn mine untucked with skirts, too. I say go for it!

  • My very favourite plus size white button down shirts for plus size clients are by Foxcroft. Hands down! Try all the fits because they do differ. Brooks Brothers run up to size 20 and are great for petite plus sizes.

    Could you do one on fun kitten heels? With two small kids, regular heels aren’t practical all day and I’m sick to death of my ballet flats!!!

  • Hi!
    These are great, can you possibly do a fun series of petite plus size jeans?
    I have a horrible time finding a great pair…

    Alfani is actually pretty good about putting actual boob room in the designated boob room places.

    Not a budget item, but HIGHLY recommend Lafayette 148 shirts and blouses, preferably on massive sale. They run a bit big even. I’m a 14W/16 G cup and their 14 fits me fine.
