Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Plus Size Must Haves


Nordstrom's Anniversary sale is still in full swing so don't delay in grabbing those must have plus sized fashions. Most curvy girls shy away from Nordstrom when looking for fashions but I think it is a great store to add quality staple items to your wardrobe and over the years the number of brands available have expanded.

Nordstrom carries extended sizes in over 100 brands and many can be purchased in store. The extended sizing spans across several departments to include denim, dresses, swimwear, activewear and lingerie. Several of the Nordstrom private label brands are available up to size 24 or XXL. You can also find plus sized fashions in store from brands like Nike, Adidas, Madewell, and Spanx.

Every year I search the catalog to see what items I can add to my fall capsule wardrobe and this year, I found a few gems. Here are my top five must haves for the curvy girl.


Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Plus sized fashion Spanx pants

The Nordstrom anniversary sale is the best time to buy items from Spanx. If you love the leggings these pants are the perfect day to night closet staple. Buy an extra pair just to have. I have had them for over a year and the color still looks great and the fit is very slimming. The sizing is very generous and there is a petite option.

Bubble Sleeve Top

Grab this bubble sleeve top from Madewell to pair with jeans, leggings for your favorite pants. The mock neck makes it easy to transition from fall to winter.

Knit Blazer

This berry colored knit blazer gets lots of rotation in my closet as you can quickly through it on with your bottoms or Nordstrom plus size dresses. Keep those maxi dresses in rotation by adding a simple jacket.

There are several brands of plus size denim available at Nordstrom and many are part of the anniversary sale. The boyfriend jean from Kut from the Kloth is amongst my top picks. These jeans just seem to hit all the right places and when paired with my favorite pumps add some extra sex appeal. I was happy to see a few other styles that I will have to try.

Plus Size Dresses

Nordstrom carries a variety of plus size dresses in store and I could not resist this one. The pleated cuffs and A-line shape make it flattering on all. Pair with ankle boots or pumps.

The plus, size-inclusive mannequins seen in store are a great way to eye ways to style your favorites especially since the fitting rooms are not available in most stores.

If you are not ready to shop in store, there are several options available to include free shipping and curbside pick-up. Nordstrom is currently running a promotion that awards you ten dollars for using this option. Who doesn't like free money?

I recently visited my local Nordstrom to grab a few items and loved that hand sanitizer, masks and gloves are available at each entrance. There are also signs throughout reminding shoppers to practice social distancing.
