Some people save up a few coins just to be able to shop it. In the past Nordstrom plus size options during the sale were limited and many of the styles on sale were a bit old lady. However, withing the past few years, Nordstrom has been showing plus size girls some major love with the anniversary sale.
One of the major reasons we are now able to find stylish and quality plus size fashion at Nordstrom is because of their commitment to growing their plus size department. They’ve added new brands and extended sizing on some of their popular brands in store and online.

If you take a look at Nordstrom’s catalog and overall promotion for the anniversary sale, you’ll notice that they’ve included plus size models. Which is always a good thing.
Today, I wanted to break down to you how to navigate Nordstrom’s anniversary sale, what brands will have some of the best deals in plus sizes and when you can actually start shopping the sale. Let’s get right into it.
Why Shop Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale
This is the perfect time to get a jump start on your fall wardrobe and update your summer wardrobe simultaneously. During the Nordstrom sale you’ll find both fall and summer pieces discounted. Many items will be at the lowest price of the year.
The Best Plus Size Fashion Buys
When it comes to figuring out what to buy, I say get a little of everything but focus on the essentials. Nordstrom has quite a few plus size only brands. They also have a bevy of brands that have extended their sizes to include plus sizes. Brands like BP and Halogen are two brands that both come in women’s and women’s plus. In addition, they’re are always part of the anniversary sale. These brands are super affordable with a slew of wardrobe essentials under $100.
BP offers quality wardrobe staples like modern blazers and sweaters on sale. Halogen comes through with on trend dresses, skirts, and tops. Those are the two brands you should definitely be shopping. This year, we are going to see brands like J.Crew and Madewell on sale, especially since they’ve extended their sizes last year to a 3X.
If you checkout the anniversary catalog. You’ll see a few pieces from BP, Halogen, and J. Crew featured as part of the sale. You can expect to see this plaid blazer, leopard skirt, and tee part of the sale. All 3 of these pieces come in plus sizes.
Shop Premium Plus Size Denim
While it’s always fun to shop affordable fashion, Nordstrom’s anniversary sale is also good for buying designer and premium fashion brands. You’ll always find designer jeans part of the sale. This year plus size girls will get a deal on Good American jeans and Madewell jeans.
Shop Fall Plus Size Outerwear at Nordstrom
I’m always looking at outerwear when it comes to the Nordstrom sale. I know it can be hard thinking about a coat in 90 degree weather. That’s why my advice is to focus on trench coats, biker jackets, and long cardigans. These pieces can carry you from Fall into early winter. Nordstrom brands like Calson produce some pretty snazzy fall jackets.
Contemporary Plus Size Dresses
Other hot plus size buys are dresses. I would say stock up on dresses because you can wear them now and later. In the past, contemporary brands like Eliza J. and Nordstrom’s 1901 label dresses were included in the sale.
Stock Up On Plus Size Sweaters
Take advantage of the plus size sweaters that are on sale. You don’t have to buy heavy sweaters. However, you should definitely checkout light weight wrap style sweaters, long cardigans, short sleeve sweaters, and sleeveless sweaters that you can wear on breezy summer nights and in early fall.
Don’t Forget Shoes & Handbags
Shoes and handbags are a HUGE part of the anniversary sale. During the sale, you’ll find a slew of designer shoes and handbags discounted. Brands like Marc Jacobs, Kate Spade, Rebecca Minkoff and more will be part of the sale this year.
The great thing about the shoe selections during the sale is that there’s a variety of sandals and boots on sale. You can get discounts on brands like Stuart Weitzman, Sam Edelman, Vince Camuto, Steve Madden, and more.
