    I dont think every shop/brand should offer plus sizes but more should than they do! I saw my mum go thru hell finding herself clothes when I was younger. . and why should she? Everyone deserves nice clothes and to look good. Im a size 16 to 18 and im lucky I can find clothes quite easily but I still struggle.

    Try being a 36.5inch inseam.

    I usually go into shops and try on pants. Then if I find a pair I like, I email the company to find out the pants unhemmed legnths. Then if unhemmed, they are 37-39inch inseam I will order an unhemmed pair and hem them myself.

    It would be much easier being plus sized, I could actually buy off the rack.

    Im not too fussed about plus size clothes but i would love to see more clothes appropriate for large busts!!

    I find i have to go up 2-3 sizes in order to fit my breasts. Even then i still struggle cos even the larger sizes are designed for small breasts.

    Im finding im shopping more and more online as Aust stores just dont have clothes to fit my boobs!!

    Having said that, there are far more plus sized clothing stores than there are 'big busted' stores so i dont see what every ones problem is.

    My big gripe is the lack of petite clothes, I'm a size 8 but very short in the body shopping is a nightmare everything is too long! There was a lot more choice in the uk, I was stunned at the lack of choice over here!

    I'm a size 8 and struggle to get clothes to fit me. I am basically limited to cotton on at the moment because I struggle to get clothes to fit me anywhere else that's in my budget. I am a size 8, with boobs that match my size, but it seems clothes makers make size 8 clothes to fit those who have had boob jobs so I struggle so much to get tops and dresses to fit. I have much better success with jeans and shorts.
    I also can't find bras to fit me properly either, unless it's a sports bra. But even then it has to be Lorna Jane because cheaper sports bras don't fit. It's annoying, but I am clothed so I deal with it!

    And I have the opposite problem!

    Short of going to a tailor for all of your clothes, not many people are going to be able to get any item of clothing off a rack and have it fit perfectly.

    As for the plus sizes, it's not financially practical for every clothing line to produce every size. If they did they'd have to start charging so much more to try and cover their costs!

    Same I've never been more than a size 12 and it's a nightmare being smallish (I'm a 10 atm) with big boobs, especially dresses. Size 10 won't even zip up at the top back bc of the Girls, and bigger sizes make me look like I'm wearing a sack. Or tops that are fitted in the bust area, which is quite common.

    It seems size 8-12 designers think we have tiny boobs

    Nooo there's so many clothes that I try on that gape at the boobs, or have straps that are way too long. Sounds like we all have issues getting clothes to fit!

    I'm slightly embarrassed to admit I can't even get maternity bras as I am a 10A... I must be the only one with tiny boobs whilst breastfeeding. I'm also a size 4-6 in clothes.

    Eta: I certainly don't go writing letters of complaints to companies demanding they make something in my size though! I accept I'm in the minority and so tough luck. We all have issues big and small!

    Nope, me too! All my maternity bras were too big for me.
