    It's not an exact guide but I find that generally the more expensive clothes tend to be more generous.

    I like Per Una in Marksies, Principals, Wallis, Next that sort of thing, which for me are very similar in size. I recently went into Matalan and tried on some combat trousers that were in their sale and had to go up a size, but I didn't mind too much as they were soooo cheap :)

    The lovely thing is that when you get to your goal you will love shopping for clothes and won't mind trying a dozen different things, cos you'll look fab in all of them! Enjoy it :)

    I find Next are not generous. I can get into 20 top and 16 bottoms most places but 20 tops in Next are too tight !

    I get quite a bit of stuff from Peacocks! they have a great selection and the quality of the products range from cheap as chips (ie £8 for a pair of trousers) to an average price (£16 - £20 for a pair of trousers).

    I definately find it much better than Newlook (think its gone down the pan!)

    Also agree with Dizzy about Monsoon....expensive but fab fit. They were the first size 16 jeans that I got into. Luckily didn't have to pay for them as they were on the LL clothes swap rail. I have some Dorothy perkins size 16 jeans that are still too tight to wear whereas the Monsoon jeans are getting a bit slack.
