Puffer jackets are all the rage when it comes to keeping warm this winter.
If you are like me, you are probably concerned about how someone with curves can pull off a look that is called “Puffer”.
How to wear a “PUFFER” Jacket #PlusSize #Fashion
Puffer jackets get their name because they are over-filled with feathers or feather-alternatives. The filling in these jackets give the jackets a ‘puffy’ look.
The good news is that puffer jackets will keep us warm when it is cold outside.
How could they not keep us warm with all of that puff- right?
The not so good news is that the puffer jackets can make anyone look big.
To be honest, when I am wearing a puffer jacket, I am probably trying to keep warm more than I am trying to make a fashion statement. After all, it could be what I have on under that jacket that can really make any kind of a fashion statement.
But, there is also the reality that I might bump into a reflective glass door or mirror while I am in that warm jacket. I want to feel like I am wearing this puffy jacket in an okay way.
What should we look for in a ‘puffy’ jacket?
As a gal with curves, I am looking for this:

- A puffy style jacket that is of the correct proportions so that I feel as if I an wearing it and it is not wearing me.
- A jacket that has slanted pockets, pockets well positioned, or has some kind of similar design element that will slim my look.
Here are some examples of puffy-style jackets for curvy women.
