Where am I NOT looking for great women's clothes which aren't too expensive? I'm a UK size 18 (US size 16, I think), and shop in all the usual UK high street places that go up to that size. I'm looking for clothes which are a little quirkier and more interesting than what you can find there.
Another clothes-question for fashionable MeFites...
A lot of the time I feel I look like everybody else. Some time ago I was at a party chatting with a couple of other slightly bigger girls and someone pointed out we were all wearing the same thing (wrap dress, long-sleeved tee-shirt underneath, tights, boots).
I shop at the usual places: New Look, H&M, Dorothy Perkins, Debenhams, Next etc. Also thrift shops. I feel like I am missing out on some more interesting options because a lot of places don't go up to my size, e.g. Topshop.
Does anyone know any slightly more offbeat and interesting places that do go up to my size and aren't too expensive? Mail order is cool too as long as they ship to the UK.
I have a pear shaped figure. I never wear things that are too tight. I hate "bodycon" clothes. My style is feminine but grown-up (not little girly), I love V-necks, bright solids, dresses with flared skirts. Ideally I'd do all my shopping at Modcloth
, except they're based in the US and it costs a lot to get their clothes shipped over here.
