    Hi Sonkie

    I recommend you check out simply be, they are a little pricey but they do gorgeous and fashionable clothes:

    On the high street try

    Anne Harvey - I am not sure what sizes they go up to...

    Marks and Spencer's Plus size collection goes up to size 28.

    If you are on a budget check out:

    Yours or Bonprix or big girl's wardrobe

    All have cheap and fashionable clothes, although if you order from Bonprix you may have a little wait as their clothes come from france...

    Hope that helps

    And btw check out my blog - I have loads of links to plus size clothes shops on the left hand side...

    Luv and Hugs, CC xx x xx

    New Look surprisingly go up to 28 in their Inspire range. Tesco size 26, Mark one size 26 i think. I cant wait to be a 24 again so i can shop in ASDA.

    Hi Sonkie,

    an idea depending on what you have to spend and how much more you want to lose. Buy a few nice items from the shops and have a gander on ebay to see what people are offering and save the pennies.

    Avoid H&M unless you have a big ego. Their sizes are messed up. Ive known someone who was in 18s else where having to buy a 24 in there. Not good for the soul.

    Hi Sonia I used to work at Evans and so know that they go up to a size 30/32. You'll be absolutely fine there! I was going to say that they have a sale on at the moment so you could pick up some bargains but seen as your hubby's paying, sod that, go for something fabulous!!!!
    Good luck xx

    Hey guys well I went shopping and got a few tops, will make do with my jogging bottoms for now....well I got size 26/28 omg I was so excited and to be able to get the tops over my shoulders too.
    My last experience of Evans was not good, I tried a 30/32 on and scrapped it on, but could not get it back off over my shoulders.....well I had to shout hubby in to help me ...lol

    I can laugh at it now, but how embarassing !

    I had a good "non-stretchy" trouser suit in my wardrobe, size 28. It hadn't fit me for ages, but after I had lost 3 stone, I figured that it would fit. I went to try it on, in good sprits - and it STILL didn't fit, well not properly anyway. It was one of the all time low points on my diet. I just felt SO disappointed that after losing 3 stone, size 28 still didn't fit. I felt like the mountain was just too high to climb, and came the closest I ever came, to giving up. SO, when this size 28 trouser suit eventually DID fit, I was very happy indeed. Keep on Sonkie, in the summer you'll be in a size 14.
