Short of dressing up like Santa, there are few better ways to show your holiday spirit than by donning a big and tall ugly holiday sweater. Like most clothing for bigger people, it’s difficult to find these sweaters in extended sizes. Lucky for you, I just attended a Christmas party with an ugly sweater theme, so I did a bit of research to find shops that offer horribly festive (or just plain ridiculous) holiday sweaters in extended sizes. See what I found below.
The Best Options for Big and Tall Ugly Holiday Sweaters
As always, if you can’t find something in your size anywhere else, you’ll probably come across it at Amazon. With sizes to 4X, they offer the most variety when it comes to big and tall ugly holiday sweaters. Most of what you’ll find falls into the naughty category, but there are some gems, like this Ugly Christmas Sweater Faux Cardigan. Nobody will be able to miss you if you’re wearing this twisted work of art. If you’re willing to sacrifice the sweater and go with a sweatshirt, there’s this tasteful design.
If you’re more interested in geekery than naughtiness, ThinkGeek might be the place for you. From Star Wars to video games to this Bob’s Burgers Holiday sweater, there’s probably something here you’ll find interesting.
Even major retailers like Target have gotten in on the action with their own ugly sweater section. Here you’ll find light up sweaters, festive animal sweaters, and some generally gaudy options for your holiday party. Great options if you don’t want to spend a lot of money for a memorable look.

Sears is not playing around when it comes to big & tall ugly holiday shirts and sweaters. At last count, we’re seeing around 500 options in the XL to 5X size range, with each size having at least 80 shirts to choose from. While there’s not a lot of raunch in their inventory, if you’re looking for silly options, or pop culture favorites, you’ll find them here.
