Help needed for my new shape

(2 Posts)

I'm short - 5ft 2. In the distant past I was a size 8. I've gradually got bigger and very recently I've ballooned.

I used to be a kind of hour glass but now my big boobs and big bum have been joined by a huge belly that I'm not used to. In trousers and skirts I'm now a 14/16.

I don't have broad enough shoulders to wear tops that can accommodate my boobs and belly. Any dresses that fit my top won't stretch over my bottom half. Sideways on I stick out in both directions - belly at the front, arse at the back.

I do want to lose weight but in the meantime what the hell am I supposed to wear? I have nothing despite several long shopping trips.

Anyone else out there with a similar build and some solutions?


I can't find any clothes that are a good fit. What can I wear?

I can relate I've recently balooned too due to medication

I'm 5.1 and a size 18
