Plus size loungewear isn’t the easiest to find in the Australian retail space. So many styles stop at a size 20 and even those were limited. But alas I am here to help and I’ve dug around to find the cutest cosiest looks from brands that have retail stores where you can pop in and try the styles on.
Naturally I was drawn to these pants because they are pink. (if you are new here, I live in a pink themed apartment, its a bit of a thing) But if that’s not your colour then they come in a sage and silver colour too
Top – V-Neck Moss Pullover sizes 18-26
Pants – Ribbed Culottes sizes 6-24
Stay snug wearing the Avella Fleece Trackpants and jumper. Perfect for lazy days at home, these trackies feature cosy lining, front pockets and an elasticised waist with a drawstring adjustment
Pants – $10 Fleece Trackpant by Avella size 16-26
Top – $10 Fleece Sweat by Avella size 16-26
Personally I love hoodies with zips because its way easier to unzip a bit rather than to take an entire garment off. Or if you get a cold butt in Winter then I highly recommend wearing a high low top as pictured.

I have to say I was impressed with the range available for plus size women. They offer 12 plus size trackpants in various styles and colours & 26 jumpers.
But what I do personally find frustrating is that if all these styles start at a size 18, then why are size 14 models used? And no shade to my friends who are the models, you gals are beauties. This is all about the brand wanting to make money from plus size women but not actually using models that fit the clothes. We as customers want to see a realistic image of what the clothes look like on a visibly plus size women, ya know, like us.
Cotton On is quite new to the curve world. Their Summer stock was fab but it seems like there aren’t too many winter options for curve. Make sure you check out their slogan tees, I highly rate them!
Pant – $29.99 Curve Super Soft Slim Fit Pant – Sizes 18-24
Comes in light grey (pictured), dark grey and a light animal print.
Top -$29.99 Curve Super Soft Mock Crew Neck Top – Sizes 18-24
Comes in two shades of grey (light and dark)
This brand came highly recommended from so many of my followers. People raved about the comfort and the quality of the natural fabrics.
They’ve got quite a few different styles depending on how you would like the garment to fit your body. Personally I like wide leg pants because I like to be able to pull them up when I’m hot.
Here’s a list of where this brand is stocked.
When it comes to loungewear, it’s all about wearing what is comfortable. It doesn’t have to be trackies, I mean personally I love to wear a long cardigan over leggings. Happy shopping!
