Im a big size 12 (if that makes sense) and wondering where other mumsnetters would recommend to shop for clothes that are a nice fit but also on trend for someone who is a bit curvy .Any help would be great .
I like Mint Velvet (and no its not ALL grey), Great Plains, some Boden stuff (trousers/jeans and plain merino knitwear), some Autograph and Limited Collection at M&S is also nice, best to get to a big store with the whole range I find, their website doesnt really do it justice.
I am a curvy, large norked size 12 short-arse and the most flattering things I've ever bought are from Vivienne Westwood. Sadly, I can't afford VW very much, so I also get things from:
The White Company (sales); Hobbs (sales); Jeans from Gap (their curvy ones are good); Oasis are good for jeans too Some bits from Warehouse, though I don't like it as much as I used to - I do like it for accessories though; Plain and striped t-shirts from M&S Limited Collection; I got some skinny combat things from M&S Limited Colelction that are quite flattering; V occasional bits from Linea Weekend - you have to sift through a lot of v unpleasant stuff to find nice bits though.
I have never, ever seen anything in Bravisimmo that I would consider wearing, dead or alive - sorry!
I'm finding that a further complication is that nearly everything is polyester now and I hate polyester.
