For all those '90s babies out there, plus size chokers can bring back some serious nostalgia. Whether you were a junior gothling sporting a black velvet ribbon, a boho babe rocking romantic lace, or you just experimented a couple of times with those weird, stretchy tattoo chokers, this retro trend might bring back a few memories.
Since I need a slightly longer style to fit my chubby neck, I've been a little frustrated at the dearth of plus size chokers available from mainstream retailers. Still, there are a few brands with sizing options that work for bigger bodies, so fat '90s babes can enjoy a sartorial trip down memory lane, too.
Personally, I'm loving some of the simpler, minimal choker designs that let me indulge in a little tween nostalgia while still working with my current sense of style. But if you're craving an authentic reminder of your favorite '90s accessory, there are plenty of cute, kitschy styles ready to take you back. From velvet to satin, beads to bondage, these 15 plus size styles will take you on a trip down memory lane, while keeping you right in step with the latest trends. Clearly, what goes around comes back around.
