    I've never enjoyed clothes shopping and tbh don't do it very often (unless i need something particular) but i have a wedding to go to in just over three weeks and have been looking online but am at a bit of a loss as to where to start. Where do you plus sized ladeez get your going out clothes from? (as opposed to jeans etc) :confused:

    Hi, Evans at the moment but it depends on what size you are because if your smaller than a 22 then quite a few other shops stock that size. Next go up to some stuff in a 22, tesco's have a range called true marks and spencers do it too in fact quite a alot of places go up to that now. If however you need more than a 22 then evans, tesco and there is a small range in M&S but not great. If you go to a larger Evans store they do have some nice trendy clothing. Good luck. Zoe xx

    Tesco's do a plus size range
    New Look do a plus sized range
    George do a plus size range but their standard clothes generally go up to a 22/24
    Peacocks go up to a 22/24 in tops and 20 in bottoms/dresses
    MK One have a plus sized range
    Dorothy Perkins go up to a size 22
    Sainsbury's Tu go up to a 22
    Bon Marche go up to a 20/22
    Ethel austin go up to a 20

    There's a few for you to get your teeth into. Can't believe I was still a serial shopper even when I was big!!! Hope that helps x x

    what size you after hun?
    My mate just bought a lovely dress, size 24, off ebay for a tenner for a wedding!
    If its for a wedding, then the chances are you wont be wearing it again between then and goal weight....so why waste your money on something stuipdly expensive....
    I would def go for ebay....esp as its then in the comfort of your own home when you get to try the clothes on...if it doesnt fit, re-sell it and buy something different!
    Hope that helps hun and you find something fabulous!!

    Hi Rayvan

    There are quite a few Monsoon dresses on ebay!

    What size are you after, as I have a couple of monsoon dresses I won't wear again?!

    Well at the moment i'd be a 22 in Monsoon (which is the largest they go up to) but i'm hoping i might get into a 20 but i think thats just wishful thinking. There are quite a lot on ebay - i don't really do dresses so this is a new experience for me!
