When I first moved to New York City from California I refused to purchase a puffer coat.
“I’m puffy enough already!” I’d say to myself… “I’m not adding extra inches to my body.”
Thankfully this year I cam to my senses: being body positive means that adding a few inches to my body so that I can be warm in winter is a GOOD DECISION!
So, I shook off the bad body mentality that was keeping me freezing and ordered my first official puffer coat.
Best. Decision. Ever!
I left 80 degree weather in California and came back to a snowstorm in NYC, luckily my new puffer coat was waiting for me when I arrived. I put it on and have been living in it ever since.
Puffer coats are popular for a reason, the “puff” keeps me so warm I can run around NYC comfortably in the most freezing temperatures.
A coat like this is an investment piece, so I did a lot of research before I made my purchase. I narrowed it down to these seven perfect plus size puffer coats.
Note for coats like this: If they’re fully machine washable/dryer safe you may want to tumble dry them with tennis balls to help fluff the down inside
