I too have been a big girl all my adult life, so never been able to shop in 'normal' shops!! I too would like to not have to go to the "fat" section of New look!! Yeah, I seriously can't wait to be able to shop wherever I want ;)

No one particular shop, it was just that anything I managed to get into didn't "do" anything for me. I must say now I've hit a 16, I have actually taken an interest in clothes again. Stick at it , you WILL all get there.

There have been times in my life where I have had to buy an outfit because it was the only thing I could get into. Now I'm happy to say I can pick and choose and it is grrrrrrrrrrreat! Stick with it guys, it's well worth the effort

I remember i had a size 8 trousers from RI. Id be happy with buying a size 12 from there now though.
I bought jeans from next yesterday for my christmas doo and they were a 16, gutted really as ive lost a stone and cant really tell.

Completely agree! I tried some jeans on in Jane Norman, took a 12 and a 14 in the changing room and the 14 didn't even fasten up. I needed a 16!!
In Next, Monsoon, Asda, Tesco, Coast, DP's, and practically everywhere else I am a 10 to 12.
Shame on Jane Norman (their stuff is lovely too!)

totally agree about the Jane Norman trouser sizes... one of the reasons I've not tried anything on in there in years.... seem to have styled all their clothes around someone being a size 8

yeah, they suck. u do get some shops where u just look at the wndow and think "hmm size 8 city..." and not even contemplate going in. i must say i feel lucky to have never been more than a size 16 because i find it hard at a 16 to find stuff i feel happy in and thats with the full rnage of shops, cant imagine how hard it must be to buy in plus sized with such a limited choice of shops.

I don't miss any shops I just miss being able to buy something that I like and looks nice as oppose to buying something that fits and doesn't look too bad :cry:

I used to shop at superstores mainly..... even that was a chore and having to ring round to see if they had any bigger jeans....

All I wanted to do was shop in any store and pick clothes form the middle of the size range !!!!

Now this has come true for me , and I love to shop at TKMAX and River Island, Ecco, Republic, etc. It's lovely to pick nIce bits up. Thedown side is the cost of having a new wardrobe for my new body.
