Inspired by another thread on here, AIBU to have a wish list if clothes I wish existed?

I want...
Tights that don't fall down/ cut me in half/ ladder / go wobbly.
Jeans with proper pockets, enough to fit a mobile phone without it peeking over the top.
Comfortable bras that don't cost a fortune.
Pants that match the above bras that aren't made of polyester.

What else would you add?

Jeans that have a high enough rise to actually fit my waist at the back and the front and don't leave a huge gap at the back.

Cotton knickers that don't contain lycra or any other stretchy, sweaty stuff.

Low heeled shoes that don't have pointed toes.

Boots with low heels, lace up fronts and side zips with a concealed bit over the top of the zip and no sodding buckles because both of these catch the hem of my coat or the lining of my skirt when I walk and stop me in my tracks or rip what I am wearing.

Bras that are smooth, supportive and not padded like a mattress topper.

Square necked jumpers. Just plain, easy, square necked jumpers.

No sparkles or cut outs!

@StripyHorse - look at Snag tights
@DaysofCurlySpence - Fantasie Smooth Seamless bra

I want trousers that fit round my chunky calves, tops that reach my middle and below, dresses with lower waists and size 9 women’s shoes.

Marshmallow91 Sat 19-Jan-19 00:14:10

@DaysOfCurlySpencer - yes!

And a triple yes to the knickers and shoes.

And I'll add: tops with more give at breast level. I'm sick of being a size 8 with size 12 boobs. angry

Clothes that don't shrink.

Fusioluxe Sat 19-Jan-19 00:22:12

Buttons in the right place so a fitted shirt doesn’t gape on the bustline.

Gloves that fit someone with small hands but long fingers.

Clothes for children that don’t have arms down to their knees.

Decent swimwear. Swimsuits with cup sizes and body size. Bikinis with different bottoms for different body shapes.

Doubletrouble99 Sat 19-Jan-19 00:26:19

Sleeves in, especially coats and jackets that are too tight or are cut and attached to the body so flatly that you can't move your arms. If you are a size 18+ like me chances are you have bingo wings!

Boots that last more than one winter
Chunky cargigan they isn’t looooooooong

AlmostGrockle Sat 19-Jan-19 02:14:11

Swimcaps that are big enough.

Bitchywaitress Sat 19-Jan-19 02:25:10

Smart work trousers with real actual pockets!!!

RedDwarves Sat 19-Jan-19 02:39:11

My biggest grievance at the moment is exposed zips. Not an impractical thing, just an ugly one.

PatricksRum Sat 19-Jan-19 03:55:00

Second flat shoes without pointed toes.

Tops/ dresses that are long enough to go over my boobs! Tired of having these dresses that are in a tall size but look petite once they've stretched over my boobs.

More nursing nightwear.

Pyjamas that have differing waist size/ length like jeans do. Pyjamas are supposed to be comfy, they should fit.

Birdsgottafly Sat 19-Jan-19 04:36:34

I second sleeves.

Lots of lovely easy wear shirts around last spring. All without sleeves. Mens shirts have sleeves, especially over Winter, but Women are suddenly considered weather proof. Lack of long shirts, some of us, especially those in a size 16, want clothes that we can do toddler groups/soft play/practical stuff and be covered.

More easy wear clothes. Compared to Men, there's a lack of practical, clothing. It extends to Girl's clothing as well. If Asda etc is your budget level, you can kit your Son out in warm Winter clothing, especially jumpers, that they can play in, Girls have silly thin 'pretty' tops.

That includes footwear. Sketchers 'Street' collection is heaven sent. I want footwear that I can walk in, not totter about in.

Quality basics in natural fabrics in a massive range of colours. I'd do this as a startup if I had the money to invest.

Clionba Sat 19-Jan-19 05:27:20

Amen to all of the above.
Quality basics in natural fabrics.
Cotton clothes, especially tops, in hot weather. Not see through. I don't want to wear sweaty polyester or something transparent.

Kpo58 Sat 19-Jan-19 05:30:25

Trousers that don't cut me in half when I sit down.

Longer tops so there is a overlap between the top and my buttocks on the trousers.

BikeRunSki Sat 19-Jan-19 06:09:56

@MissElaineNeus - Kettlewell Colours do this.

thecatsthecats Sat 19-Jan-19 09:11:57

Out with cap sleeves (suit almost no one), in with more elbow lengths!

V necks that come down far enough - not to my waist and not to my collarbone.

Boob room.

Shirts not actually made of cellophane.

From Bravissimo - clothes that aren't so bloody tedious! Clothes that actually suit plus size women. Apparently they have a big thing against being seen as a plus friendly retailer, all the models are as small as they can get them. I also find that their clothes have room for boobs, but often only if your force your tits under your chin rather than, you know, chest level. Also some garments are made with room for boobs, but not much room to get said boobs to that point.

monkeysox Sat 19-Jan-19 10:32:33

Agree with bravissimo, also it needs to be more affordable

BikeRunSki Sat 19-Jan-19 12:31:23

Boob accommodation and Tall fitting.

Queenie8 Sat 19-Jan-19 12:39:27

@MissElaineNeus Uniqlo is the shop you want/need. Delivery and returns are second to none. Sizing charts are spot on.

peppersaunt Sat 19-Jan-19 12:40:44

I second 100% cotton underwear and t-shirts. Why is everyone adding modal or Lycra? Also, unfortunately I am a size 12 with size 16 upper arms. What’s with the tight arm holes and cap sleeves???

purpleme12 Sat 19-Jan-19 12:42:09

Re bravissimo actually I have the opposite problem with them! Their clothes are too big for me! They don't cater for the smaller sizes!! (I do need their bras though even then it's hard to find ones that fit)

I would like to add that all the jeans I buy never stay up on me I always have to wear a belt to keep them up and by the way there are way skinnier people than me. It's not like I don't have any fat on me. I don't know why they don't stay up
