I love a plus size fall cape. The drama is SO good, what with all of the dramatic swooshing. But you know what I don’t love? When brands brag about a “one size fits all” fall cape situation. Let’s be real: “One size fits all” is more like “one size fits no one”! Before you shop, there are a few things you need to know to help you find a fall cape that fits the way you want.
Tips for Finding the Right Fall Cape for Your Plus Size Body
The make-it-or-break-it aspect of wearing a cape is the way it fits and falls on your body. And cape sizing isn’t an exact science, but there are a few considerations you should make before clicking “purchase.” Here are a few tips to help you find the right plus size fall cape for you:
LENGTH: As a short and curvy babe, I have found that some capes drown me in fabric — they’re just too long! This is a totally normal problem for a short person to have, albeit an annoying one. If you find yourself in this predicament, you can either focus on petite plus size fall capes — or take your too-long cape to your local tailor for shortening!
CARE INSTRUCTIONS: A good number of plus size fall capes have faux fur or other dramatic (and fun!) features that make them dry clean only. When looking for a cape for myself, I usually look for faux fur or detachable features to make care more manageable. And trust me when I say you do NOT want to wash faux fur in your regular washing machine!
PIZZAZ: While there are a number of plus size fall capes out there in black, I think the drama of a fall cape lends itself to being seen! Take up space, babe. Get that bold cape!
