Scuse the title I couldn't think how to word it!

My dilemma is this. I'm a size 18. Stomach biggest, partly from ibs, scar tissue and being greedy. Aiming for a 12.

I've joined the gym and started spinning and despite not always being able to do every single bit I'm persevering as I sort of enjoy it.

However the seat KILLS my arse. To the point I can barely sit on it at the end. I went to sports direct today and got some Muddy Fox padded bottoms, got them home and fuck off are they a size 18. They were digging into my calves!

So where can I buy decent (budget) gym stuff that is actually the size it says it is and not get disheartened?

Have you tried a padded gel seat instead?

Matalan gym clothes go up to an 18. www.matalan.co.uk/womens/shop-by-category/sportswear

Just noticed a thread further down about padded seats. www.mumsnet.com/Talk/exercise/2619785-Spinning-and-nether-regions

The name is a bit cheeky, but Fat Lass At The Back do up to a size 26.

You might find bib shorts comfortable if you have stomach issues - less of a waistband to dig in.
