I like fashion, but it appears that many clothes designers do not like fashion for larger ladies. Fashion magazines cater for those who are size 12 and below. On a recent shopping trip, I discovered that in truth, I am too big for clothes. I am not sure when this happened because I do wear clothes. Most of my clothes are old and have been with me for many years.
Over the last few years, there has been an upsurge of fashion of larger ladies. However, most of these are online. Which means that you have to buy and then try on. If an item is unsuitable, then the item must be sent back to the website owner.
Fashion for larger ladies
Shopping use to be a time honoured social gathering for many women. Meeting in town, going for a coffee and a chat and then shopping. Online shopping just doesn’t give the same tactile feel to this social interaction.
There use to be an Evans (Fashion for larger ladies) on every high street. Unfortunately, this is not the case today. There are very few high street shops catering for larger ladies. A Uk staple, Marks and Spencer’s no longer appear to provide garments for larger ladies. Primark is also off the shopping list. Their clothes only go up to a size 16, even if they are marked 18. The cut of a garment also important.
Shopping for clothes is made even more difficult when your top half is different to your bottom half. Body shapes are all different and we all have different needs.
In this section of the website, I will be looking at fashion for larger ladies and seeing what is available and if there are any bargains to be had.
