I'm mid 20s nearly 30
Size 12
5ft 8 tall
small norks. 34 B

Have 3 children. Youngest is 18 months

I work from home so don't need office suitable clothing.

I need every day comfortable smart clothes.

I live in jeans and M&S long sleeve round neck black or grey tops.

I need new foot wear etc

I don't hAve a great deal of success when it comes to clothes. My shape has changed so dramatically over the last 10 years.

I feel most put together in a pair of skinny jeans and a well fitting top (I like slightly longer tops not ones that end at my belly button) and a jacket. At the moment I live in a quilted barbour type jacket.

My hips are widest part.

Shoulder length brown hair. Fringe.

Sorry I have no advice but I hope someone with advice will be here soon, however are you sure you are the right size bra. Have a look at one of the bra intervention threads on here and you might be shocked. A good fitting bra makes alot of difference

Your shape sounds great! Lots of options out there for you. I was in a similar situation 3 years ago. (Toddler-friendly clothes, long-sleeved tees.)

Learning what to wear in a new life situation takes some time. For me, blogs have been very helpful - follow lots of them and you can work what you personally prefer. Also reassessing things like bra size (went from A/B to D!), use of color (from black to smoky blues and soft whites and warm olive greens), and what looks best on my shape (ideas for pears here) have helped a lot.

Have a wee play on Dressipi to see what style you like best. It's quite good at recommending stuff it thinks you will like once you spend a bit of time playing about with what you like.
