Hi all, I am a size 22 but have previously been a 28. Have lost 5 stone and despite still being a big lady, am feeling good! Dh is having kids next weekend while I meet up with friends in home town and we will have some drinks and go to our local nightclub. Have been looking around and am struggling to know what to wear! I am at biggest on my hops and tummy but my legs are smaller and my shoulder area is too. Any ideas? Not really wanting to spend over £50...

But Uniqlo don't go up to 22, do they?

OP, congrats on your achievement.

I have some black leggings with sparkly bits down the side could get one of these tops and maybe the boots but not sure if ok with leggings? I am 5ft 9 so lack confidence in heels. I am 34 btw.

You have done so well; what diet have you done??!! I'm bumping this thread as I despair knowing how to dress stylishly and more on trend whilst being a size 20?

look for the sales in simply be and yours. John lewis you can search by size and price. The low cost range isnt massive but its worth a shot. Also debenhams go up to 22 as well.

Thanks janji- I totally agree, never know how to be 'on trend'! Doing weight watchers and did couch to 5k which has changed my life. Thanks januarymadness

Well done. It is a huge achievement and your fashion choices are growing!

Nothing useful to add but well done on the weight loss, it's quite an achievement smile

Aw thanks guys! Am going to keep going but 5 stone feels quite a milestone and can't believe how much better I feel about myself.
