I think a lot of women find it hard to find clothes. I have slightly short legs which makes shopping for jeans a pain. Does anyone else except for Target stock the short jeans? I also have quite large boobs which makes finding tops hard . Aghhh. I find it hard to shop.
Rockmans have short length jeans and Jeans West online do as well. Both are still too long for me to wear with flats, I have to wear a heel or hem them.
I'm too short for short jeans too, it's so frustrating. I've become very good at hemming over the years! I also have short arms and I'm short from shoulder to bust (so scoop necklines are positively indecent on me!). I got so sick of it, I started learning to dressmake so I can at least make my own tops.
I have spoken to several shop assistants about the lack of sizing, most of them say they regularly send requests for short kegs, larger sizes etc but it just falls on deaf ears
Jeans west do short length now (finally!) and asos (online) do now as well. So much better than even 2 years ago where I don't think short length existed, but their ranges are very limited.
I have noticed that less and less places stock size 5 shoes as well, yet according to the shop assistants they are sold out of them very quickly if do they get them in. Work that one out!!
One thing I've never understood is why, in summer, most plus size tops are sleeveless, yet in regular sizes there are plenty of short or capped sleeve tops. This makes no sense at all!
Try finding plus size maternity or nursing clothing. It just doesn't happen unless you want to pay three times as much.
I buy most of my clothing from the US from Macys and Nordstrom and then get judged for not buying locally.
Having said all that, I think stores should stock and sell whatever their own style, range is and I don't feel discriminated against because they don't. I actually don't wish for more plus size clothes. I wish it was easier to lose weight and then maintain it.
I'm a 16 but find a lot of sz 16 clothes in normal shops dont fit so it would be nice if they went to an 18. I find that city chic has awesome beautiful clothes but even a 14 is too big for me there! Then there's the price of plus sized clothing at plus sized shops it is a huge difference. I paid at jeans west $70 for nice sz 16 jeans that fit but $160 at city chic for some that where tbh unflattering. I know a lot of people say things like its their falt they got thay size but honestly for some of us its not. Ive been battling depression since I was 13 and most of the meds cause weight gain. My mother battled anorexia at 18 now she has thyroid issues and is overweight and very short. I know for some family owned companies they can't afford the plus size clothes but would it really kill big w or target to stock some nice ones that do fit to the size on the tags?

For shorter length jeans the trick is to find what length works for you. If you go online you'll see jeans range from 25 to 34 inches (inside seam). My perfect touch the ankle length is around 30inches and I'm about 172cm if that gives you some idea. My sister is quite short and she often buys cropped styles and wears them as normal for her.
