m&s, h&m,etam, Dorothy perkins, monsoon, off the top of my head - there's a big centrefold article about this in the daily express today, if you can get hold of a copy. hth

In the buckinghamshire area they have a fantastic shop called watercolours. They do sizes from 16 - 28. They have some lovely things in there and have a good selection of everyday clothes, formal dresses, suits, swimsuits, jackets and underware. I love this shop, its run by a couple and they really look after you whether you are buying or browsing. Oh and they have fantastic sales as well

Definately M&S. ALso BHS might be a nice surprise if you haven't been in recently. Agree with the comment about Wallis - I've had some great skirts/trousers from there but the tops are all 'skinny fit' so you can get them on but they are NOT flattering.

Ann Harvey is fantastic but not on every High St.

Good luck

Not High Street, but Matalan go up to a 20-22 in everything they do and some of it is quite good (and they usually have large sizes left when everything else has gone!).

if you are looking for 'trendy' stuff then def mk one or new look and for more traditional/plainer stuff m&s (just try there tops on first as some of them area bit short) etam is good as well for basics and some lovely gypsy skirts at the moment, but i've heard a rumor that they are shutting down so be quick!

Some of the bigger Tescos have some lovely stuff in their Florence + Fred range which goes up to something like a size 28. M&S's standard range goes up to a 22 - 24, they also have a range in their larger stores which goes to a 28. Some H&M stores have a large size range, which goes up to a size 32, but beware - the trousers come up huge, but the tops come up very small.

tescos 16+ stuff comes up very big, but the normal stuff too small!
