When old man winter starts blowing again, we all need a warm winter jacket. But if you are a plus size girl, you need to find one that hugs all the right curves without looking bulky and smooths over the rest of your body. Finding a larger sized coat that is fashionable, chic and trendy but fits well and makes you look and feel good is important. You also need to make sure you try on the right size. Try and keep that size tag number out of your head, as different designs will be sized differently. Make sure the coat moves with you especially if you are active outdoors.
