Finding a decent Christmas jumper can be a challenge, particularly if you’re looking for one that you can wear beyond the festive season.
The only person I can think of who can pull off a funny reindeer jumper is Colin Firth in Bridget Jones’s Diary (just about), but even Mr. Darcy can’t convince me to wear one.

The holiday season is fast approaching, and you don’t have to subject yourself to novelty or throwaway knit that you’ll only wear once a year. We encourage you to find a jumper that will last you throughout the season and for years.
But not everyone can trade their novelty sweaters for something timeless and chic.
I came across this article from Refinery29 of plus-size women sharing their frustrations about the apparent lack of plus-sized options. Often, brands that offer inclusive sizes are either too expensive or poorly made.
Some women have shared that they can spend months shopping online looking for something that would work well with their body type, but they don’t want any old piece simply labelled as plus-size or advertised for curvy women.
Looking for cute and chic Christmas jumpers is hard enough. For plus-size women, their best option will be an old-fashioned store where all the options seem outdated or just plain ugly.
There aren’t many options for women over a size 22 purely because there are fewer brands that cater to them. Plus-sized clothes are often cut smaller than the size suggests, so you’ll have trouble finding something that actually fits.
Fortunately, more brands are extending their sizes. High street brands like Anthropologie, H&M, and Mango have all introduced plus-size options in recent years.
Then there are brands like ASOS, which has more than 7,500 items in their plus size collections.
Plus Size Brands
Everyone should be able to find clothes that excite and inspire them. ICYDK, some brands have been dedicated to creating stylish, plus-size pieces from the very beginning.
So, if you’re a curvy woman who just wants to find a chic jumper for the holidays that actually fits, we’ve rounded up a range of the best plus-size Christmas jumpers.
Full disclosure: some of these definitely can’t be worn all year round, but if you want to get into the festive spirit, you might like them.
