i tried on some of those "skinny" pants at old navy, just for the hell of it. i looked ridiculous! i admit that on certain people, they look good. but not me, and i'm sick of not being able to find things that look good on me, simply because they aren't "in style" right now. good fit and flattering clothes should never go out of style, dammit! incidentally, i ordered something from alight.com a couple weeks ago, in what i was fairly sure was my size. i looked like a pregnant tent. i'd advise y'all to try ordering a size down on the tops... smile.gif

Hi, new to this thread but for large bras and a great selection of well fitting supportive swimming costumes and even some clothes try Bravissimo, they are on the web at www.bravissimo.com (I don't work for them honest!). They are in Britain but if you buy a lot... and get together with some others I think you'll find the postage is worth it... I'm an American size 18 (gotta love those American sizes - I'm a British size 20!).

i feel the need to resurrect this thread.

one more website tries to sell me elastic-waisted pleat front mom pants and imma kill them. and why is it that the only skirts available for this season appear to be pencil skirts?

Hi out there--First time poster in this thread but I have great hopes that you all will be able to help. I am looking for fun, cool excersize clothes. Not skin tight stretch anything. Skinny women get neat capri pants in colorful "outdoor" fabric that are great for casual wear or a hike or something.

I am a size 16 and can't get anything fun. I used to be able to do pretty well at Target for straight up excersize pants but I am not shopping there anymore. Does anyone have ideas?

For general clothes I am currently really enjoying the Boden catalog--they go up to a 20 (I think) and the clothes are in that in between price range--j crewish--but pretty fun. I got a good dress for a summer wedding from them.

thanks!

Okay, here's the kicker. I'm 19. I'm 6'2". I'm not fat, but pleasantly plump would probably be right on. I'm a 16-ish waist. I weigh 220 pounds. None of this really bothers me anymore; it really did in high school, but I've accepted that I'm just a big person. I have, however, been trying to lose weight, and this year I found out why I'm having so much trouble. I have polycystic ovarian disease, which apparently accounts for weight gain and the inability to work it off. Now that I know, i'm actually able to cater around the issue, and I've gone down a belt loop since May. Buying clothing is still just as tough. There are stores out there like TallGirl, which is mostly business and really expensive, and there are stores like AdditionElle, which sometimes has some funky stuff, except that it's mostly things my mother would wear. Not that I'm insulting her style, mine's just different. So I have found the best ways of buying clother are the following:
-Need pants that are long enough? Guy's low rise (especially from the Gap) come is 36-37 inseams. Dreams do come true.
-Go see your local Thrift store; it's a tresure chest waiting to be opened.
-Try making your own clothing!
-Don't be afraid to buy extra large sizes. Especially of lots of different styles. Layer them.
-Use patches to your advantage.
-Buy shirts that material can be added to. Cut the seams up the sides and add a different colour, maybe a patch of sorts at the bottom. Add material to the bottom so it's longer.
-Confidence makes everything better. You're beautiful. Fat is a tool to make you more noticeable than the stickly girls. Use it to your advantage.

I recently found Levi's Relaxed 550 Boot Cut jeans at Sears and these jeans fit quite nicely.

Like all plus size pants they have a large waist that doesn't "fit" but aside from that these are probably my favorite jeans I've ever worn.

I thought I'd pass that along if you've never checked out Sears for the more casual clothes. They carry Land's End brand there so if you like those clothes you can buy them there. They don't have a huge selection but ...

beanigirl - Torrid has some lovely suits that fit well. Target also has some two piece sets (buy the pieces separately in your correct size).

You might also check Land's End, Eddie Bauer, and Travel Smith (they've got some gorgeous swimsuits).

I got a great one at TARGET in the womens section.... it's a tankini but covers like a 1-piece and is this awsome orange / brown / yellow paisley type print on top with a cool sequined V neckline and molded boobeh cups and ties halter style around my neck with a wide tie back and the bottom is solid chocolate brown.... it may sound funky looking but it really is super cool and cute! I think so anyway....

I'm having such a hard time finding a bathing suit this year, not there is anything new about that, almost all of the plus size suits I see don't have underwire or any support, I cannot let these suckers just bounce around! Does anyone have any ideas of where to go?

LMAO I love this thread!
I am 5'1 a lowfat raw food Vegan and STILL am 156 pounds (because of the meds I take because of two diseases I have:Degenerative Bone,Disc, and Joint disease, Ulcerative Colitis, and a neuropathic wasting of the spinal cord disease called Syringomyelia.) So needless to say it is IMPOSSIBLE to find clothes for my pooh bear esc physique!

I found the absolutely coolest swim suit at Target this year.
2 pcs.
top is halter / tank top, tying around neck with wide-ish sturdy tie back
crisscrossing deep V cut front
yello/gold, brown, orange, white large, paisley-ish type print with yello-ish sparkle sequins trimming the V cut front(makes the boobies look jazzy) Top is long enough to reach hip bones and leaves NO belly gap.
bottom is a full cut, brown color to complement the top, with wide waste band that makes tummy look nice. I am truely not embarrassed to be seen in this suit! That's a FIRST!
Mix and Match is the best since I have a 16-18 top and around a 18-20 bottom.
I was so afraid I was going to have to squeeze into one of those "not-so-glamorous" JUNIORS/MISSES swimsuits in x-large...... BLEH.
The suit I got absolutely kicks butt in the glam dept..... skinny girls, eat your heart out!

High time I found new slings for the girls...
Usta be that Lane Bryant bras were flimsy pieces of crap. For several years now I have been avoiding them, but maybe time to give them another chance. Anyone have an opinion? Extra cool, if anyone has seen bras with narrow straps. As hardly 10% of a bra's hoisting action actually comes from the straps, I don't understand why I have to tolerate fat wide shoulder straps that look way too maternal!

Also, I'd be all thumbs up about the LB boy cut panties except the crotch is too narrow... turns into floss. Blah!
