Rant ahead:

I went to Kohl's today and I wanted a pair of Gloria Vanderbilt jeans in a size 24 SHORT. No, no, no!! They only have them in Average. They are like 3-4 inches too fucking long in average. I went to two stores and only found one fucking pair. I hate shopping for clothes. Mostly pants because I can find tops out the ass that are very cute but pants are the worst. Nothing makes me want to blow up a clothing store more then when they don't have my size. I never have a problem with my body until I have to go buy fucking clothes. It's the worst. I hate shopping. I can't wait to go to the grocery store. At least there they have things I want.

Go for a Wacoal. They're pricy ($50-60), but I'm a 42DD and I swear by them. They're good for minimizers and non-minimizers (I prefer the latter - not looking to hide my boobs, just give 'em a little lift). Or if you can find them, Lunaire is pretty good. Nordstrom carries them, but their variety has been dwindling.

i tried on some of those "skinny" pants at old navy, just for the hell of it. i looked ridiculous! i admit that on certain people, they look good. but not me, and i'm sick of not being able to find things that look good on me, simply because they aren't "in style" right now. good fit and flattering clothes should never go out of style, dammit! incidentally, i ordered something from alight.com a couple weeks ago, in what i was fairly sure was my size. i looked like a pregnant tent. i'd advise y'all to try ordering a size down on the tops... smile.gif

Hi, new to this thread but for large bras and a great selection of well fitting supportive swimming costumes and even some clothes try Bravissimo, they are on the web at www.bravissimo.com (I don't work for them honest!). They are in Britain but if you buy a lot... and get together with some others I think you'll find the postage is worth it... I'm an American size 18 (gotta love those American sizes - I'm a British size 20!).

i feel the need to resurrect this thread.

one more website tries to sell me elastic-waisted pleat front mom pants and imma kill them. and why is it that the only skirts available for this season appear to be pencil skirts?

Hi out there--First time poster in this thread but I have great hopes that you all will be able to help. I am looking for fun, cool excersize clothes. Not skin tight stretch anything. Skinny women get neat capri pants in colorful "outdoor" fabric that are great for casual wear or a hike or something.

I am a size 16 and can't get anything fun. I used to be able to do pretty well at Target for straight up excersize pants but I am not shopping there anymore. Does anyone have ideas?

For general clothes I am currently really enjoying the Boden catalog--they go up to a 20 (I think) and the clothes are in that in between price range--j crewish--but pretty fun. I got a good dress for a summer wedding from them.

thanks!

Okay, here's the kicker. I'm 19. I'm 6'2". I'm not fat, but pleasantly plump would probably be right on. I'm a 16-ish waist. I weigh 220 pounds. None of this really bothers me anymore; it really did in high school, but I've accepted that I'm just a big person. I have, however, been trying to lose weight, and this year I found out why I'm having so much trouble. I have polycystic ovarian disease, which apparently accounts for weight gain and the inability to work it off. Now that I know, i'm actually able to cater around the issue, and I've gone down a belt loop since May. Buying clothing is still just as tough. There are stores out there like TallGirl, which is mostly business and really expensive, and there are stores like AdditionElle, which sometimes has some funky stuff, except that it's mostly things my mother would wear. Not that I'm insulting her style, mine's just different. So I have found the best ways of buying clother are the following:
-Need pants that are long enough? Guy's low rise (especially from the Gap) come is 36-37 inseams. Dreams do come true.
-Go see your local Thrift store; it's a tresure chest waiting to be opened.
-Try making your own clothing!
-Don't be afraid to buy extra large sizes. Especially of lots of different styles. Layer them.
-Use patches to your advantage.
-Buy shirts that material can be added to. Cut the seams up the sides and add a different colour, maybe a patch of sorts at the bottom. Add material to the bottom so it's longer.
-Confidence makes everything better. You're beautiful. Fat is a tool to make you more noticeable than the stickly girls. Use it to your advantage.

I recently found Levi's Relaxed 550 Boot Cut jeans at Sears and these jeans fit quite nicely.

Like all plus size pants they have a large waist that doesn't "fit" but aside from that these are probably my favorite jeans I've ever worn.

I thought I'd pass that along if you've never checked out Sears for the more casual clothes. They carry Land's End brand there so if you like those clothes you can buy them there. They don't have a huge selection but ...

beanigirl - Torrid has some lovely suits that fit well. Target also has some two piece sets (buy the pieces separately in your correct size).

You might also check Land's End, Eddie Bauer, and Travel Smith (they've got some gorgeous swimsuits).
