I reckon bootleg and flared jeans look amazing on big women. Stay away from skinny leg or tapered leg - coming in at the ankles just makes the tops of your legs look wider, and makes you look shorter.

Wear stuff with shape around the waste. Flatter your curves, don't hide them. Floaty fabrics are great too. Avoid tight fitting stuff. Who cares if it's a size 16 or an 18 if the 18 looks better?

With dresses and skirts, avoid anything where the length is at your shins, on the wide part of your leg. Skirts should be knee length or just below, or full length. If they're part way in between, they have to be full and floaty. Otherwise they point to how wide your leg is at that part.

My favourite shop is Autograph, cos they stock things for all shaped big women, those with booty and those without. Also Crossroads now stocks up to a small 22, they're cheaper too. :)

As for what I will wear as a size 12? Jeans and singlets that show a tiny bit of middle. I'll get my belly button pierced too. Form-fitting clothes. Pretty things. :) And clothes that only cost $10 each, not $40!!!

I have a massive problem with larger people wearing clothes that are way too big for them, particularly pants. I know that I was guilty of it, I lost 20kgs, worked my arse off in the gym and still used baggy pants to 'hide' myself. I think it does nothing at all for anyones figure, it certainly did nothing for mine!. My Mum for example has lost 22kgs in the last year, anyway she has been wearing the same size pants the whole time and she keeps buying more the same size! I went with her last week to get some new clothes and made her try on some nice fitting jeans. She was gobsmacked "Oh, I look thinner!" That's because you are Mum! The difference was incredible, and when she wears them she knows she looks good and that confidence exudes from her! She has gone from a 22 to a 16 and looks great, still losing as well.

As for me, I think the things that look best are definately any top that has a lower neckline, be it v or boat neck. I for one am loving boat neck at the moment (just bought a beautiful French Kitty top!). I live in jeans, particularly JAG bootcut, always a dark colour - makes my legs look longer and thinner.

I guess what I can't wait to wear is something sleeveless without feeling blah! I have a few things now but my Nanna wings always make me wear a cardi or something, no matter how hot it is!
