Looking for plus size ugly Christmas sweaters? How did the ugly Christmas sweater tradition start, anyway? I”ll confess, the first time I saw an “ugly Christmas sweater,” it just looked like a Christmas sweater. The kind I saw everyone wearing when I was growing up. I mean, my mom has a ton of them. I guess I'm saying, I didn't know they were ugly, because I don't know what an attractive Christmas sweater would look like!
Now we can combine two other characteristics with the ugly sweater tradition: Plus size and nerd. These plus size ugly Christmas sweaters have a bunch of nerdy logos and designs. And most of them aren't sweaters. Most of them are t-shirts or sweatshirts that look like sweaters. I think that's a relief because sweaters are hot and itchy. But! Torrid has one that is actually a sweater.
If you're looking for something more conventional, DressLily has a whole slew of plus size ugly Christmas sweaters. Look for the words “plus size” in the names of the sweaters. They've got snowmen, Santa, reindeer, Christmas trees and other traditional holiday designs.
