Big and Tall Recliner: Shopping Tips

Shopping for a big and tall recliner with extra width, extra length and lots of stability can be difficult:

  • Weight capacity – Some retailers only sell recliners designed to hold a person who weighs 250 pounds or less.
  • Description – Some recliners may be sold as “oversized;” but, this only refers to the seat width, not the weight capacity or the fully reclined length.
  • Length – Some recliners may hold more weight; but, a tall person will also need a recliner that has a taller back and a longer length when fully reclined.
  • Delivery time – Some retailers can order a sturdy recliner designed to hold someone who weighs up to 500 pounds; however, they require a special order that may take months to deliver.

Several of the big name recliner companies are now making and stocking recliners which are perfect for the larger or taller person. Prices tend to be cheaper online; so, our editors recommend checking them out in a retail store environment and then ordering your recliner online.
