If you're plus size, you probably know how uncomfortable it is to sit in a narrow chair as you complete your daily responsibilities. Not only does it make you feel isolated, but it may also cause harm to you because the chair wasn't designed to cater to the needs of people outside the average norm. However, wide office chairs are here to change the game.
While standard ergonomic chairs appeal to the average population, extra wide office chairs are more comfortable for people with waistlines above the average – about 40 inches for males and 38.7 inches for females. However, this fact makes these types of chairs more complicated to find.
Today, we'll give you some of the best options you can choose for a wide-seat office chair. Perhaps you'll find the best addition to your home office by the end of the article.
