In Britain, most of us only heard about Black Friday last year. But discovering Cyber Monday — Black Friday's online BFFL — has given us all of the clothes without any of the getting out of bed. What could be better? Clearly, finding the best plus size Cyber Monday deals was definitely a must for me this season. When you consider that so much of plus size fashion seems to have a "fat tax" on it, it becomes crucial not to miss out on the big discounts when they come. Plus, you can get into the holiday spirit and buy some presents for your best plus size gal pals as well.
No matter the time of year, you've got to love a bargain. So thank you America, for bringing your tradition of buying beautiful clothes for cheaper than usual all the way across the ocean. Whether you're in the States, in the UK, or anywhere with access to the Internet, the feeling of finding a sweet deal on Cyber Monday will be totally universal.
Although there are a heck of a lot of sales going on with almost every brand you can think of, these are some of the absolute best plus size deals to be found in cyberspace.
1. ASOS Curve
Maxi Dress in Chevron Print; $58, asos.com
ASOS is hosting an amazing 30 percent off of everything sale when you type in the code "BLESSED" at checkout. This obviously applies to its gorgeous ASOS Curve collection. Get in there!
2. Isolated Heroes
Barbie Pink Faux Fur Sequin Biker Jacket, $260, isolated-heroes.com
This gorgeous Scottish independent label has had a huge year, from winning awards to being worn by plus size stars like Tess Holliday and Gabi Gregg. Now loads of its gorgeous, glittery pieces are 25 percent off. Check 'em all out while you can.
Travelling Cake Pop Truck Dress in Paprika Plaid, $69.99, modcloth.com
ModCloth publicly removed its plus size section this year, but never fear: The clothes are still there! They're just called "extended sizes" instead. This means that you can still get all of the brand's pretty plus size clothing as part of its Cyber Monday sales, with 25 percent off anything when you use the code "FUNDAY" at checkout.
Lace-Up Mini Dress, $24.90, forever21.com
Forever21 is currently offering up to 70 percent off many of its items online, but if you spend $21, then you can get 21 percent taken off of your total order (including those sweet sale items). Just use "CYBER21" at checkout! IMO, this is one of the better deals out there.
5. Charlotte Russe
Plus Size Skinny Trousers in Rust, $30.99, charlotterusse.com
Charlotte Russe is calling this the best deal you'll get from the brand all year. And TBH, I can see why! Forty percent off site-wide and free shipping? Well, it would be rude not to, right?
Lace Microfiber Chemise, $38.50, torrid.com
One of the original plus size giants, Torrid is offering you 40 percent off of everything (when you buy four or more items; but let's be honest, that's pretty easy) as well as free shipping with any purchase. Just use code "CYBER15" at checkout.
7. Yours Clothing
Hell Bunny Black Jacquard Print Layered Net Dress, $132, yoursclothing.co.uk
Yours Clothing is offering up to 70 percent off in its Cyber Monday sale. How amazing! What I especially love about the Yours website is that you can choose the "up to" percentage you want to search for.
8. Shop Tunnel Vision
Vintage Grunge Cheetah Slip Dress, $34, shoptunnelvision.com
Shop Tunnel Vision used this Thanksgiving to host a five-day-long sale store-wide of 50 percent off all in-stock items (pre-orders not included, unfortunately). Use the code "OHHECKYEAH" at checkout to get this sweet deal.
Wrap Front Velvet Dress in Berry, $30, boohoo.com
Like ASOS, Boohoo has a site-wide sale that applies to its plus size section, of course. With up to 50 percent off of sale items and free delivery, you just can't say no.
10. Lane Bryant
Tulle Midi Skirt, $79.95, lanebryant.com
It's an old school plus size brand, but still a good one. LB is offering a smashing deal of 40 to 50 percent off site-wide and free shipping on orders over $50. This means you should definitely treat yourself to a $50 Lane Bryant shopping spree, because duh!
Scuba Knit Dress with Flounce Panel in Dazzling Blue, $39.95, nordstrom.com
Last but definitely not the least in the sea of deals offered, Nordstrom is hosting a massive sale of up to 50 percent savings. Treat yourself, because you deserve it.
What I love about Black Friday and Cyber Monday is that you can get so many of your Christmas presents sorted for half of the price. What's even better still is spoiling yourself before the season of giving is upon us. Not that I hate giving presents or anything. I just like receiving them too. Don't feel guilty: Cyber Monday is such a bargain that it'd be selfish not to go crazy.
