There is nothing more frustrating than feeling forgotten by the clothing industry. Curvy girls are the forgotten women of the fashion world. It’s like clothing designers completely ignored this group of women when they were designing their clothing. What’s even more frustrating is searching high and low for a simple top for your favorite sports team.
Growing up near San Francisco, I’ a huge Bay Area sports fan. My family and I go to San Francisco Giants games frequently, but I always have a hard time finding tops that fit my 36G bust.
On the left is a picture of a top I purchased in an XL at the Official Giants Store (it hugged in all the wrong place so I returned it immediately ):
“Curvy girls, I am here to tell you where to find fan gear that actually fits!”
#1.) Torrid has a great selection of your favorite pro teams at incredibly reasonable prices.
#2.) If you’d like a personalized jerseys of your favorite pro baseball player, check out the MLB Shop. I ordered a 2X (see image above) and it fits just right in the chest and hips (beware….the Majestic Brand runs small so order a size up!)
#3.) Kohl’s has an amazing variety of college and pro sports team apparel in plus sizes for you to choose from (and their sales are incredible too!)
#4.) For your favorite NFL team or player, check out NFLShop.com.
Tips to consider when shopping for team apparel that fits your body type:
- The days of walking into a store and finding your size are few and far between. Many brick and mortar stores don’t carry much inventory anymore and if they do they only carry smaller sizes.
- Plan ahead! Most Website orders take a week or so to deliver to your home (sometimes the bigger sizes are on back order) so order ahead of time before the season begins!
- Always order a bigger size so you can layer long-sleeve tops underneath if you prefer.
Happy fan shopping and GO TEAM!
