    Angry Difficult To Dress Body Shapes

    Does anyone else have a shape that's 'out of the ordinary' especially whilst plus size that they find difficult to dress?

    I've no idea what I am in the conventional sense. I guess I'm a top heavy hour glass(!) because of my boobs and waist that goes in much smaller than it should, but I can't be sure.

    I'm 5ft 9 with boobs that are only three inches smaller than the 69" that I am tall. On top of that I have a long body too.

    Tops are a nightmare for me, because they need to go over my boobs, over the long body - and still be long enough for me to feel comfortable enough to leave the house in. Trousers aren't far behind as I need a good belt as what fits my waist will not fit my hips(!) but I know most people have that issue

    Blah, I hate shopping I want so badly to grow to love it though and to have a good wardrobe of clothing where I can buy from any shop if I want to - not just Evans/Yours Clothing/Second hand ebay bits. Fed up of only having three places I can buy clothes from!

    This is the only place I can rant where people understand and in some cases have the same problem. It's really quite cathartic!

    I know exactly how you feel I can only ever shop in Evans when in the high street and also use simply be/yours and eBay. It's depressing. Xx

    I always feel like I have an odd shape, I have a short body, not much space between boobage and hipage, I'm a 16 on top but not shirts as I'm a 20 if I don't want to gape, I'm an 18 I would say for may waist and 20 for my hips really frustrating..... I'm into dresses at the minute worn with think tights but when it warms up some more I'll be wearing the linen trousers dresses and bare legs not for me.
