H&M Reccomendations

I have been given a voucher for H&M for my birthday. Online they seem to go up to my size. In the shops it is the old old story - just as in New Look - you have to really hunt down anything over a size 14 - loads and loads of small, 6s and 8s. There were some alright tshirty tops and some quite nice jumpers. I am in my 50s (55) and looking for something sober enough for work. Should I ever work again, that is. I am size 18-20. Anyone seem any tops that they think may be what I am looking for? I went to my local branch briefly yesterday but had quite a few bags of shopping with me so did not want to stay too long. I had a look at the bags but they were huge and I already have a few bags. No point looking at the shoes as I am a wide fit. I bought some make up brushes a few months ago and they shedded like mad.

My local H&M has a plus sized section - I can't remember what the line is called but from what I've seen they do some really nice stuff!

There was a link to a really nice scarf here a couple of days ago.

I think the line is Big is Beautiful...

I recommend socks, tights, vests and undies from H&M. They go on and on.

From what I have seen, the range is lovely.

Online is far better/easier.
I'm a 16/18 and have a lot of long line tops/tunics from h&m.
You need to watch out for transparency though- some items very thin!!

Leggings and string vests (to.go under tops) are brilliant.

A lot of their jewellry is really nice.

Be warned their delivery takes forever! They do have really nice "home" stuff online.
