If you’re a bit hefty, or more than a bit “hefty” you might consider yourself a fat guy. And just because you’re fat doesn’t mean that you have to sit uncomfortably right? Of course, losing weight is one way to make yourself fit in chairs better, but that can be a long process and sometimes it’s not possible.
Chairs aren’t really like clothes. It’s more about height and weight. If you get a chair that is too small for your height, it won’t fit. But if you get a chair that is big enough for your height, and it also has large enough room for your width, it will also feel good even if you lose a few pounds.
But what are good chairs for fat guys? It can be hard to find the best chairs for fat guys since a lot of chairs out there are designed for short average guys who don’t have a belly. These chairs can be super narrow, have small seat panels, and are just plain uncomfortable. Some guys just get lazy boys to sit in, and this can be good for gaming, but a lot of these chairs look pretty crappy and can be very expensive.
So what options do you have?
Here are some of the best chairs for fat guys:
|X Rocker 51396|
Have you heard of Aeron? If not, you should have by now since Aeron is one of the most popular brands of ergonomic chairs for offices around the world. Due to their high price, only offices which value their workers usually have them. This means salaried jobs. You won’t find someone in a retail location sitting in an Aeron.
However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t at home. Aeron chairs are great since you can find the perfect size. Size C is great for large individuals up to 300 LBs and 6 feet above. The chair has a wide number of adjustments, and it’s built to last forever and be super sturdy. Most of the chair is metal and the breathable mesh is perfect for fat guys who tend to sweat a lot and need more breathability.
DXRacer is another popular gaming chair brand, but it takes a different approach than the Aeron chair. Instead of breathable mesh, you get stylish leather. DXRacer makes a large variety of chairs, and the DXRacer tank is the best match for a fat guy. The chair has a weight capacity of 450 pounds and a height limit of 6’7″. So if you’re BIG, this is a GREAT BIG chair.
The only bad thing is that the Tank edition is a bit hard to find, so I would recommend checking out the Boss edition which is actually better looking in my opinion and it still has a 450 LB weight limit. The DXRacer boss is also an evolution of the DXRacer design since there aren’t as much constrictions with side riges that can feel enclosing for a fat guy. Or check out the DXRacer King.
If you’re more of a console gamer this X Rocker 51396 swivel type chair has great reviews for bigger guys. It’s wide and the cushioning is very nice and supportive. The chair also has outstanding speakers, the ability to rock back and forth, and it won’t take up a lot of room.
The B991-CP is a plush chair perfect for bigger guys due to it’s bigger weight limit. It’s actually made for bigger guys, and if you’re looking for an affordable traditional-type office chair for gaming, this is an excellent choice.
#5 OIF BT4510
The OIF BT4510 is a simple looking chair, but don’t be fooled. The OIF BT4510 is made for bigger/fat guys who need some thick cushioning and normal styling that won’t cause the chair to stand out. The chair is very sturdy, and the reviews are very positive for a chair that is so affordable.
