Larger ladies, where do you find affordable suits? My younger cousin is suit shopping for job interviews (she’s graduating this year) and is having trouble finding nice-fitting suits that fit her well

Tahari or Calvin Klein. Best bet is to find a big Macy’s that has a separate suit section. Once she finds a brand that fits, she should sign up for the flash sale sites- I’ve gotten nice blazer/pant sets for <$100.

Not sure about sizing, but h and m is super affordable and no one will be the wiser ! Save now so she can invest in a nicer one later

For reference, I think she’s about a size 14-16, she prefers pant suits, and she isn’t stereotypically girly at all.

Ann Taylor would still be a good option up to size 16. Also, having a good tailor will help any suit look fit to her body shape.

I’m 6’0 and usually 14-16 on top and 16-18 on bottom and I can second the Calvin Klein suits from Macy’s. Wore one for my interview with EY. Also, generally recommend darker colors and tailoring the suit.

Brooks brothers is my favorite. They have great in house tailors.

Ann Taylor and/or Loft

Hey all! Interviewing and need some insights about accepting a non-tech product marketing job. I currently work in SaaS but was offered a higher paying job in educational publishing. It’s a non-tech product marketing role. I want to take the job but I don’t know if moving out of tech would be a bad move for a product marketer? Would it be harder to pivot back to tech?
