I have no qualms about admitting it: I love Old navy. Over half of my wardrobe comes from the retailer. Aside from the already low prices and consistent sales, in my experience, the brand’s clothes tend to last for years. And with its recent campaign to be more size-included by expanding its women’s section to include sizes 0 to 30, Old Navy now has a ton of additional options for plus size people like me. While many of the clothes on the site are not yet available in all sizes, a bunch of gems have seen their sizes expanded. Without further ado, here are my 10 favorite items I bought from Old Navy, ranging from dresses and blouses to leggings and simple T-shirts, all available in plus sizes.

1. These essential jeggings
Generally speaking, I hate to wear jeans. Denim and I are not friends. As a plus size person, I hardly ever find a fit that suits my shape and is comfortable to move around. But this Old Navy jeggings were my savior. They look a lot like real jeans, minus a button at the waist, which is my favorite part – just slip them on and go. Cotton and polyester fabric conforms to your shape, rather than trying to squeeze your legs into tough, tight denim pants. With Old Navy’s extended size, you can catch these bad boys in normal length (29½ inch inseam) in sizes up to 30.
2. A comfortable and open sweater
I recently went to Seattle and forgot to pack a sweater so when it got cold I was thankful my hotel was near an Old Navy. I grabbed this burnt orange cardigan and was comfortably warm for the rest of the trip. I have also received several compliments about it and since then I have decided that it is the best impulse buy I have made in years.
Available in six understated fall colors, this textured sweater has deep pockets to store your essentials as well. It looks and feels like it’s hand-knitted, from a yarn made from a cotton-nylon-viscose rayon blend. Its size is large, from XS to 4X in regular length and up to XXL in large and small lengths, although many size and color combinations are already sold out, so get yours quickly.
3. These high waist biker shorts
Available in sizes up to 4X, these 8 inch long biker shorts are versatile for training or wearing under dresses to avoid that dreaded rub the chub. You can choose from a variety of styles and designs, from solid colors to marbled prints to metallic accents. The elastic waistband won’t roll up and the moisture-wicking fabric keeps your skin dry and sweat-free. With over 2,800 positive reviews, I’m not the only one who loves these simple short films so much.
4. This floral A-line dress with puffed sleeves
Old Navy is known for its floral designs and this dress is just one of many that showcases the brand’s repertoire. You have a choice of navy blue or burgundy floral for this midi flare dress, available in sizes up to 4X. Buttons on the front all the way to the crew neck, but you don’t have to worry about the middle buttons popping over a larger bust because Old Navy hidden inner ‘No-Peek buttons’ keep things contained without deviation. With banded cuffs that puff up the sleeves and a soft cotton-rayon blend fabric, what more could you ask for? Oh, wait — pockets. He has them too!
5. These joggers adapted to work
Unicorn pants are comfortable for lounging around the house and suitable for wearing in a (casual) office. These jogging pants, made from a soft yet crisp twill, can be dressed up or down depending on the day you are spending. Details, including the mock fly and back pockets, as well as the deep side pockets, give these jogging pants a more polished look than you would expect from pants of this style. Get them in your choice of six color sizes up to 4X in the regular 27 inch inseam and up to XL in lengths large and small.
6. A comfortable tank top
With nearly 10,000 positive reviews, this tank top is a simple wardrobe staple. It comes in several colors and can be dressed with a nice cardigan or dressed with nice shorts. Made from a blend of rayon and elastane, it drapes beautifully over any body, and its scoop neckline is both flattering and understated. And, of course, the sizing goes up to 4X.
7. An essential pair of leggings
Everyone needs a good pair of leggings in rotation, whether for training, shopping or lazing around. With over 8,500 rave reviews, these high waisted leggings are my choice. Available in a wide range of colors and designs, they also have side pockets large enough to hold a smartphone, keys, cash or cards. Like the bike shorts, these leggings are made from a moisture-wicking fabric, so say goodbye to sweaty legs. The regular 25 inch long pairs go up to size 4X and you can find up to XXL in both short and long lengths.
8. This classic plaid flannel
When the first cold of fall hits the air, anyone who knows what goes on with apple picking. And it is common knowledge that you can not step into an orchard without flannel, then you might as well get yourself a cute one from Old Navy. Crafted from cotton, the button-down shirt comes in six autumnal check patterns. With details like a curved hem, darted chest and sewn back yoke, you’ll be the cutest pumpkin on the patch. It is also available in sizes up to 4X.
9. This fit and flare dress
This is a classic Old Navy dress, I’m pretty sure I had a version of it in high school. The simple design never goes out of style and looks great on any body, emphasizing an hourglass shape with an elastic, gathered waistband and a flattering round neck. Although sleeveless, it can be layered with a blazer to dress it up for work or a relaxed cardigan for hanging out with friends. And wherever you go, you’ll be right at home, as the blend of polyester jersey and rayon moves with you. The regular length is available in sizes up to 4X and short and tall lengths up to XXL.
10. This floral split-neck blouse
I have worn this shirt for almost any occasion: going to work, hanging out with friends, having a family dinner, a date, etc. With the elastic cuffs and ruffle trim, it fits and looks great no matter your size or body shape. The open crew neck is flirtatious and inviting while the floral designs are subtle and feminine. Made of viscose rayon, it will not show any creases or need ironing. Sizes abound here too.
