If you love to wear your nerdy heart on your sleeve, then you likely know how much fun geeky style can be. For a long time, it was difficult to find great geeky plus size fashion. Shopping for a cute outfit to wear to comic conventions used to frustrate me to no end, and I'd often just end up buying pieces that were several sizes too small and altering them to work for my body. Lately, though, I've been seeing a ton of adorable, stylish geeky offerings in plus sizes, and I have to say, it's about time.
One of the great things about nerd culture is that there are almost infinite flavors of imaginative style to experiment with and enjoy. Whether you prefer to stick with the basics, like a graphic tee and your favorite jeans, or you love to go all out with themed costumes and accessories, there's a community out there full of people who understand and appreciate your unique sensibilities.
From Star Trek to Star Wars, comics to Cthulhu, these geeky styles are sure to please. So, if you've been considering dipping your toe in the waters of nerdy fashion, here are 13 fabulous pieces for plus size fangirls of every persuasion.
