What can I wear that doesn't make me feel like the Hulk?

On paper, I'm not huge. I'm a size 12-14 and 5'4". Currently dieting with a stone and a half to lose, but clearly a 12-14 is not massive. However, I have huge boobs, huge shoulders and fat arms. I am hourglass shaped. Everything I put on makes me feel like this enormous hulking rugby player in womens clothing at the moment. Can anybody suggest anything that might diminish my frame to look at until the weight is lost?

Have you discoveted Dressipi.com? You put your measurements in and it recommends clothes. It is a good starting point.

Are you wearing fitted clothes as opposed to baggy?

Ooh, I haven't. Will have a look, thanks. x

Stinkersmum - I've tried both. Fitted clothes are clinging to lumps and bumps at the moment as I'm carrying extra weight, but baggy are making me look bigger. Can't seem to get the balance right.

Have you tried Pepperberry, they specialise is gorgeous curvy girls like you smile. Their clothes come in grades of curviness and are generally very flattering.

My friend sounds similar to you and she wears kimonos or waterfall type tops with slim trousers.
