Fat people can be stylish too. . . well I can if you tell me where to shop!
Ok, I admit it, I'm chunkier than average (a good size 18) all these lovely clothes seem to only go up to a 14 (asos I'm talking about you you darned catalogue of dreams !!!) Where can I - preferably internet- shop to get fashionable clothes that don't cost the earth in my size? Help me!
Oh god no! I wouldn't dare wear something that cost a month's salary!! I just mean nice tops, sparkly going out wear stuff but usually only put on with jeans or black trousers - I'm not incredibly inventive!!
Great link bundle - liking the tunic and trousers thingy.
Hi cadders, simply be! That's the name of the catalogue I was trying to remember ta
aaa - OMG! Check trousers no no no no no, I would look like a chess board - a fat chess board!!
best thing is to find your own style evans should be shot!! i for one do not want short vest tops or jeans with nice belts as i am not going out with my belt on show as that would mean having my belly uncovered no thank you..i am a hippy at heart so i love the flowery clothes that are about ,i have been big since 8 years and it was a lot harder to get clothes then ,w=one thing i would say i have learnt is dont wear black black and black they say its slimming ,i say its boring ,,my fav at mo is tight jeans as i have nice legs and firm calf and thighs, then a dredded vest top but tight then a flowy thin top over the top ,,loadsa people mention how nice that looks.so think what you like instead of what is everybody else wearing or what fits. ooh search on ebay too there are some great clothes on there,
Must admit I'm a little addicted to ebay at the moment! Agree with your style aaa, I tend to do a lot of tunics and trousers myself. Have got A Beautiful kaftan style top from ebay.
Thanks for all the links smurf, am going to look at them now.
not necessarily on line but young baby makes clothes shopping a little tricky. Did get a rather flattering top from New Look last month, may go and take another look if I can persuade Dh to take dd for the morning!
