Help! I'm in Denmark, and I have no jeans to wear for the rest of the week! Where can I buy plus sized jeans in Copenhagen?

Silly me, I packed a brand new pair of jeans I've never worn for my week in Copenhagen, and they DO NOT FIT. (Curse you, Old Navy!) Now I have only one pair of yoga capris to wear for the entire week, and that's not going to cut it.

I need to buy a pair of jeans here, but with European countries, I sometimes have a hard time finding plus sized clothing. I wear an 18 from Old Navy (except in the pair I purchased before I left!). Any ideas where I should look in Copenhagen for big girl jeans?

I need to be able to get there via Metro or bus also.

Never been to Copenhagen so can't help with shopping but you could always rinse out the capris at night - should be dry or dry enough to put on again in the morning.

One thing to keep in mind - Old Navy is big on "courtesy sizing" - it's size 18 is substantially larger than a regular size 18 - so while a conversion chart will tell you that US 18 = European 48, I'd look at 50 and above.

Here's a guide to large-size women's clothing in Copenhagen, and here's a Google translation.

Best answer: Your best bets are, I think, going to be Nanna XL (several locations nearby: http://www.nanna-xl.dk/butikker.html) or a place like Føtex (sort of like a K-mart/Target, and again, there are lots of these in Copehagen).

Best answer: H&M has a plus size line called BIB- I braved their Denmark shop and found jeans up to a European 54. Try this link.

I don't know if they are in Denmark, but when I lived in Finland, I shopped for plus size clothes at Seppala, KappAhl, and Lindex - all chains. Good luck!
