I have no qualms admitting it: I love Old Navy. More than half of my wardrobe comes from the retailer. Aside from the already-cheap prices and constant sales, in my experience, the brand’s clothes tend to last years upon years. And with its recent campaign to be more size-inclusive by expanding its women’s section to include sizes 0 to 30, Old Navy now has a ton of more options for plus-size people like me to choose from. While many clothing items on the site aren’t available in all sizes just yet, a bunch of gems have had their sizing extended. Without further ado, these 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 wearing jeans. Denim and I are not friends—as a plus-size person I can almost never find a fit that suits my shape and is comfortable to move in. But these jeggings from Old Navy have been my savior. They look much like real jeans, minus a button at the waist, which is my favorite part—you just slide them on and go. The cotton-polyester fabric molds to fit your shape, rather than you trying to squeeze your legs into pants made of tough, tight denim. With Old Navy’s extended sizing, you can grab these bad boys in the regular length (29½-inch inseam) in sizes up to 30.

I recently went to Seattle and forgot to pack a sweater, so when it got chilly, I was thankful my hotel was near an Old Navy. I grabbed myself this cardigan in a burnt orange color and was comfortably warm for the rest of the trip. I also got several compliments on it and since decided it was the best impulse purchase I’ve made in years.

Coming in six muted fall colors, this textured sweater has deep pockets to stash your essentials, too. It looks and feels as if it were hand-knit, from yarn made of a cotton-nylon-viscose rayon blend. Its sizing is broad, from XS to 4X in regular length and up to XXL in tall and petite lengths, though a lot of size and color combos are already sold out, so get yours quickly.

The elastic waistband does not roll down and the moisture-wicking fabric keeps your skin dry and sweat-free.

Old Navy is known for its floral designs and this dress is just one of many that show off the brand’s repertoire. You have the option between a sea blue or burgundy floral for this midi swing dress, which comes in sizes up to 4X. The front buttons up to a crew neckline, but you don’t need to worry about the middle buttons popping over a bigger bust, as Old Navy’s hidden interior “No-Peek buttons” keep things contained with no gapping. With banded cuffs that puff up the sleeves and a soft cotton-rayon blend fabric, what more could you ask for? Oh, wait—pockets. It has those, too!
