Replying late to this thread...

What really cheeses me off are a few things. Like qtpie mentioned above - price differences. Why does Kmart charge $6 for a tank top in a regular size, but charge me $10 to $12 for a tank top in a larger size?

Also the designs in shops like Kmart and Target. It's like they are designing clothes to make you look even bigger than what you are. They either billow out over the bust making you look 9 months preggers or they gather in at the waist and flair out below the bust - again making you look preggers. Most of the designs are shapeless and the designers don't seem to recognise that larger ladies might like clothes that are a better cut so we can show off our curves.

Or else you find a nice top that is flattering and looks nice but has a tiny little bust area designed to cover the boobs of a little size 8 lady.

I loathe plus size clothing! I hate shopping for clothes because i can never find anything that looks good.

I don't want to wear something that has my breasts spilling out of the top. I don't want to wear something like a potato sack, i don't want to wear something with a hideous print. What is up with the "fat prints" ? Just because you are fat, they start making clothing in disgusting prints lol.

I don't want to pay $80 for a top or skirt. I don't want bare arms - i have batwings and stretch marks on my arms. Why are there no nice plus size things with 3/4 sleeves? Some plus size ladies have nice arms, not all of them do. Exposed batwings aren't pretty. I've always got to get a little bolero or jacket or something to cover my arms. I hate wearing so many layers of clothing, but it's the only way i can hide things and feel comfy.

When i lose weight i will be looking forward to wearing some stuff i actually like, instead of settling for the office type look. I wear plain dark colour A line skirts, and plain button up, collared, 3/4 length blouses, usually with a cardigan or bolero on the outside. It's boring and people always think i have just come from work.

I want to wear a dress one day, even though i will always have to cover my arms. My neck is a problem area too, i have fat rolls and creases in it. This is another reason i loathe wearing anything without a collar, and i hate wearing necklaces because it draws attention to my neck.

Vent over lol

Lol wow i was frustrated when i wrote my reply. I should also add that i'm not in a city area, so my choices are Millers, Big W, target and shops like that. Thanks for the links, i will check it out. I am scared to order online because i am so fussy i need to try things on. I guess if it doesn't fit i could always sell it on ebay lol.

:D

It is an expensive shop but Big City Chic have some really beautiful clothes and they are all designed in flattering cuts. They are also of good quality and they will last alot longer than clothes from cheaper stores so in the end it is worth spending the money beause if theres one thing that irritates me about being plus size is that the seems and materials seem to wear away alot quicker than they should. Like with black leggings that i like to wear to the gym, i used to buy them from target or big W or even jay jays or valleygirl when i could get a size but id be back buying another pair within a month. the ones from city chic have lasted me over 6 months and theyre still in great condition.

Its annoying and time consuming but i really do think your best bet of finding flattering clothes is to know your body shape and understand what shapes and cuts are flattering and unflattering then shopping around in as many different shops as you can, trying on as many outfits as you can until you find something you love. And dont be scared to go into shops that dont stock your size because sizing is so all over the place and unreliable these days, i often find something really nice in a 14 or a 16 (which i am most definately not) that fits really well.

I love City Chic but I don't find that they're that good of quality for the price. I brought a $90 top from there with had ruffles on it, I wore it for one night, and found that they had become unstiched in places. A few tops from there have done similar things. Although their jeans and jackets are great quality. Just not too keen on the quality of the tops.
