WHat size of sweater to buy for someone who's 5' tall and 260 lbs?

It's for a friends. We never met in person, but I'm having my eye on a nice sweater she'll like. At least I hope so.

  • She'll need a 3X. or a 22-24 size. I know because that's me who weighs that and is the same height. Just don't get her any big prints or strips that go across the sweater. Quite nice of you to do! Hope this helps. Merry Christmas

  • I'd just choose a gift card. You don't want to get something that's entirely too big for her. With never even seeing her, it depends on the way she's built and where she is carrying that extra weight. That'd be insulting.

  • The gift card idea is good. But, with seaters myself I ALWAYS like it big. So I wear a one ex, but I dont' buy any smaller than 2x and when I can find a good warm 3x I'll take it. Bu this depends on the TYPE of sweater. I'm talking pull overs here.
    If you can go to the website for the sweatermaker. They usually have size charts for those kind of things that tell you what size to get.
    Include a gift reciept too, then if she needs to exchange it she can without having to know how much you spent.
