Plus size cool clothing, impossible mission?

I am a tall 6 ft size 30 lady finding it impossible to find cool clothing in natural fabrics like cotton, linen etc. Shops like Yours and Evans seem to be filled with polyester and heavy sweaty fabrics even though they are summer styles. I like brands such as Lady V but they seem to be the same, unbreathable hot fabrics. I have looked at Lagenlook but they seem designed for shorter ladies and not all their sizes go up to mine. I am stuck and sweltering and its not main summer yet! Can any of you help? Thank you!

Try Ulla Popken. Bit expensive if not in the sale but very nice stuff. I'm also very tall and struggle generally, but Ulla Popken seem to be wonderful length wise as well as fabric wise!

Elvi might be worth a look.

Been asking myself the same question today. Its not easy being a bigger lady when the weather starts to heat up.
Not a big fan of yours or evans this summer tbh, so will shamelessly placemark and take some of these wise ladies advice too. Will come back if i find anywhere nice op. smile

Thank you seal
Agree kate its all horrible fabrics and styles in those stores this summer, everything is 'slinky' or 'chiffon', not good for keeping cool.
