Elegant Plus Shopping Guide & Editor's Picks:  Cotton Clothing in Size 12 +

All Editor's Picks and plus-size clothing featured are hand- selected by the Elegant Plus Fashion Editor from our extensive network of fashion business partnerships. Options available in all size ranges, although we specialize in hard-to-find sizes 12 and over.  Cotton plus-size clothing and other natural fibers is becoming increasingly less common and more a premium item as synthetics and synthetic blends fill retail shelves. Some plus-size designers specialize in natural fibers as a luxury item.

Cotton Clothing Report
 

Cotton has become harder to find in recent years, especially in value priced lines.  But, those who like natural fibers for either ethical or health reasons often prefer wearing it.  Pure cotton clothing is even less common with cotton blends for wear ability and fit being the norm. The rarest and most expensive is organic cotton clothing found in plus-sizes with only a few upscale designers interested in green and sustainable fashion. Eileen Fisher is the most widely available label in plus-sizes that uses organic fibersThose who prefer cotton often also enjoy other natural fibers such as linen, wool, and silk.

Plus-size clothing is often engineered with stretch to the fabric to help fit a variety of body shapes.  While pure cotton knits can achieve this, woven fabrics will add a touch of synthetic fibers such as spandex. Cotton can also be blended with other natural fibers, the most common of which include ramie, modal, and rayon.

No iron shirts from Foxcroft, however, are often 100% pure cotton in size 0 to 24W for those who want synthetic free clothing.  Other classic retailers such as NorthStyle and Lands End also stock many pure cotton styles.  Lands End is also one of the best places to find a wide variety of sizes, including petite and tall sizes to 18, and women's to 26W.

Christopher & Banks is another good spot for moderately priced cotton basics such as sweaters, tops, and twill pants.  Denim jackets and classic jeans are also regularly available in both regular and petite inseams.  Sizing here ranges from size S to 3X.   Slightly more expensive but excellent quality are the classic options available through Appleseed's.  Basic cotton solid tee shirts in feminine cuts and cardigan sweaters are especially good here in size S to 3X.

Classic plus-size clothing is the most common style available in cotton. Cotton knits lead the category, but classic woven cotton shirts and denim clothing are frequent.  BoHo styles, particularly those made from prints from India, can also come in pure cotton and are especially popular during the summer festival season and, cruise and resort season.

Those who prefer artsier style will find plenty of natural fibers at Soft Surrounds in size XS to 3X, with many petite and tall styles to size XL (18).  Unique artisan detailing give extra flair to the collection at Sahalie which is beginning to carry more extended sizes to 3X.

In recent years the vintage modern dress trend has also produced more cotton styles for the trendy market. These can be purchased from department stores, eShakti, and Modcloth in sizes up to 6X.

Pajamas, sleep shirts, and nightgowns are particularly popular items in cotton.  Fine cotton lawns and voiles make particularly nice summer weight sleepwear, while cotton flannel is popular in the winter months.  Cotton knits are in demand all year.

Cotton bras and undergarments are located in the lingerie section.
