It can be difficult to shop for larger sizes, and when it comes to specialty clothing, such as ski wear, it can be even more of a challenge. Fortunately, many companies produce plus size ski clothing, including plus size ski jackets and pants, for curvy women and husky men.

Plus Size Ski Wear

While it can be harder to find what you need in stores, online shopping is a great way to find plus size ski wear at reasonable prices. Here are some good places to look:

Lands' End

Lands' End makes plus size outerwear for men and women, including parkas, vests, down jackets and insulated ski pants, all for affordable prices. Lands' End clothing is known for high quality and durability so you can be confident your purchase will last for at least a few seasons. 

Eddie Bauer

Similar to Lands' End, Eddie Bauer offers high-quality plus size ski clothing for men and women at a reasonable price. 

L.L. Bean

Don't forget about L.L. Bean, a perennial favorite of outdoor enthusiasts. L.L. Bean sells a wide variety of plus size outerwear options. Look under Men's Tall and Women's Plus Size on the store's website.


Columbia, the tried-and-true brand known for its stellar basics, also produces plus size ski wear for men and women. Ski jackets, pants, even base layers, and mid-layers are all available in extended sizes, for great prices, too.


If you're a skier who hits the slopes only a few times a year, don't rule out Walmart. While you can't expect high quality -- and ski clothing is a prime example of the old mantra, "you get what you pay for" -- but each ski season the superstore usually produces plus size outerwear for very affordable prices.

Beautiful Skier

Beautiful Skier is a clothing brand that offers a variety of fashionable plus size ski wear for both men and women - from insulated jackets to base layers, fleeces, and even custom-knitted sweaters and aprés-ski wear. Beautiful Skier does not have its own website, but the brand is sold by many clothing retailers. 

Lane Bryant

Perhaps the most well-known plus size shop, Lane Bryant sells women's apparel in extended sizes. Browse the website's outerwear selection to look at coats that are ski-appropriate. In addition, you can find some options in the activewear selection, too, such as tights to wear over base layers and lightweight fleeces to wear for insulation.


Arctix is the manufacturer that sells economy-quality ski wear. Many of their basic styles are available in plus sizes. The brand offers both men's and women's plus size ski bibs, as well as plus size ski pants in basic and cargo styles.
