I have more weight to lose so don’t want to spend loads.

Currently a 14/16, 12 in some stuff, 18 in others. I have a coat.

I NEED jumpers - long of body. V neck (booby girl)
Thermal vest - thin and long in body - the M&S one I have isn’t long enough, ends above my bum.
Long sleeve T’s. Again, long in body

Long sleeve V neck dresses to wear over tights and Dr Martens
Budget - little as poss as it will all be too big in a couple of months!

If you’re on a budget just try New Look, H&M, primark, grocery stores, eBay etc? You want fairly basic items so shouldn’t be an issue. Try tall ranges for length?

Uniqlo is worth looking at for all those items. Plus their HeatTech range is excellent.

I’m a different shape, but always cold, so sympathise. Instead of thermal vests I like the John Lewis version of heat-tech tops, and find they come up quite long (I’m 5ft 6). You can get long-sleeved ones which could double as long-sleeved t-shirts? They are really stretchy, so you could go down a size - I buy a size down so they don’t show under things and give a smoother line. (This may be stating the obvious, so apologies, but I always tuck in my bottom layer because gaps are chilly.)

I had this, I lost 3 stone and suddenly I was that person who's always cold!
H&M vests are long in body (I'm 5'10)
I also bought some proper old lady thermals in M&S that are lovely.
I have some of he HeatTech Uniqlo tops but they aren't bum covering long. But not too pricey.
Jumpers i really struggle with, I layer up with vests, tops and cardigans.

Amazing weight loss! Congrats. Layers, layers, layers (from someone who is always cold!)

Today I saw some quite nice thermal tops, scoop neck or polo neck. Also some packs of two long sleeved tops (not thermal). I find their sizing is always generous - long enough in the body and sleeve for tall people.

Worth a look aa they are so cheap
