Christmas T-Shirts for Plus Size Men
A men’s section is something we’ve thought about here at She Might Be for a while. HE Might Be, dare I say it?! While we initially focussed our efforts on the female of the species, because we are ladies and we only have experience of being a fat woman in society, we know that it can be really difficult to be a plus size man and still be stylish AF. We’re going to be publishing a variety of posts aimed at (and written by!) men over the coming months, and what better way to start than with something special for Christmas?
I’d wear Christmas t-shirts and jumpers all year round if I could, and my husband is the same. Show us anything red and green and we’re game. So luckily I have become quite the authority on festive fashion for those who prefer clothing from the men’s section. Lets get Christmas Crackering, shall we?!
Jacamo was one of the first mainstream brands I heard of who sold clothes exclusively for the plus size male market. Their size range is brilliant, extending to a 66 inch chest on some of their tops, but the prices are just the tiniest bit painful for me. If you want to get in on a Jacamo Christmas t-shirt, do what I do – wait until the January sales and stock up your festive wardrobe for Christmas 2017.

Bad Rhino is Yours Clothing’s big brother, and definitely the first place I look when shopping for my significant other. The prices are generally pretty good, and the majority of clothing goes up to anywhere between a 5XL and an 8XL. There is a hearty mix of the traditional and the spoof over in their Christmas section, so there’s something for everybody. In my opinion the tackier the better at Christmas, but if you or somebody you know prefers something a little bit more understated there are even some t-shirts you’d get away with wearing for the rest of the year.
We do a lot of our shopping for my husband from ASDA George. Although they’ve been letting me down in the women’s department recently (they used to stock up to a size 32 online but it goes beyond slim pickings right now. Sort it out, ASDA!) the t-shirts in the men’s section are comfy, decent quality and available up to a 4XL. The most expensive t-shirt in this selection comes in at a hefty £8, so if you want to be festive on a budget ASDA is definitely going to be your friend.
Don’t forget, while these are in the male section of the shops there is nothing to stop anybody wearing them. If you’re a big-boobed lady just size up in a men’s t-shirt for a good fit – a lot of the time, men have much cooler (or more tacky) options over Christmas, so it’s definitely worth a look!
