Our Top Picks From Target, Loft, and J.Crew’s New Plus-Size Lines
The beautiful clothing these brands are known for is (finally!) available in extended sizes.
Loft, Target, and J.Crew are go-to shopping destinations for both work-ready outfits and casual weekend wear. But for too long, the limited size ranges at these stores prevented many from shopping there—that is, until the recent announcements that all three companies are expanding their size offerings. To celebrate the news, we've rounded up some of our favorite picks from all three brands, below. Here's everything you need to make it through what's left of winter and refresh your wardrobe for spring.
Loft Plus Wildflower Satin Shift Dress
Loft Plus Split Neck Utility Blouse
Equal parts pretty and polished, this light blue blouse will become a staple in your work wardrobe. The collar and button cuffs make it look professional all day, while the relaxed fit helps it transition smoothly to post-work happy hour.

Loft Plus Frayed Cuff Straight Leg Jeans, in Pure Dark Indigo Wash

Both J.Crew and its sister brand Madewell announced that they will be extending their denim sizes. While their jeans used to go up to size 32, both brands will now offer sizes 32 to 35. The extended sizes are available in multiple styles, but hurry, they seem to be going fast. The best way to find them on j.crew.com is to search by category and add a filter for size.

J.Crew Toothpick Jean
No wardrobe is complete without a pair of classic black jeans. And great news, this pair is available in sizes 23 to 35. Our one wish: more images of models of various sizes so shoppers can see how each pair fits different body types.
