    I'm an E to F cup. Total nightmare to accommodate boobs that big in small clothes. But yes you are right. Women come in so many shapes and sizes. Small with small boobs, small with big ones, bigger with small, bigger with big boobs. Tall and skinny, short, no hips, big hips.

    I suppose it's hard for clothes designers as it's impossible to cater to every single body type. Still.... it's frustrating huh.

    I'm exactly the same! I've decided I'm going to try online shopping at Next &/or Marks & Spencers UK - might be worth giving it a go!

    My issue isn't so much finding clothes in the bigger sizes (I'm normally a 14), it's finding styles of clothes that fit my body shape. I too am a bit of an apple carrying all my weight around my middle. I also have a DD chest, to make things more fun. Many clothes these days seem to be cut in a tailored style to fit snugly. While I can certainly get clothes that fit, I also don't like wearing skin tight clothes so that l my lumps and bumps are on display. Buying up a size doesn't make this problem go away either. I just wish the fashion industry would take into account that not everyone has a petite/slender figure with a flat tummy and no love handles. Even with the right size jeans I get a muffin top, I just don't always like it to be on display!

    Sadly an apple in high waist pants looks like when an old man pulls his pants over his beer gut rather than belting his trousers under.

    Agreed. I have the size 6 problem too, but I've found a few shops now who's clothes usually fit really well (I haven't found any cheap shops though I must admit...) but yep, I think it's just difficult for everyone. People always tell me it must be easy to get nice clothes because I'm "skinny". Nope! Busts too big on dresses, hips to wide on skirts, maxi dresses/skirts out of the question unless I want to wear 6 inch heels because I'm short, jeans I could wear if I hide stilts up my legs... We're all just different!

    When I find jeans that fit me I'll wear those things to death! haha. I found one pair at Just Jeans that were PERFECT, even the length was good! I got so excited that I ordered another pair of them online so once the other ones wore out I'd still have some! They turned up and I swear they were labelled the same size but were about 10cm smaller in the waist than the pair I bought in store!!! And now...of course....they are sold out of that style

    I have the maternity bra problem too. I had no problem when I was pregnant and when my milk first came in I was a 14DD for a while. But now DS is only wanting to feed once or twice a day so my boobs have shrunk down to a 10B and there is no way to get a properly fitting maternity bra. I've thought about just wearing a normal bra but the day I do that he will have a day like today where he wants to just boob all day

    That's really interesting, because when I was pregnant I bought maternity jeans from them. I tried them on in store and they fit, but I didn't buy them cos I was still shopping around. Then I ended up getting them online because they had a sale in their online store, and the ones I got there were too small even though they were labelled the same size.

    Hmm...

    I'd also try US department stores like Nordstrom and Saks. Especially since the US stores seem to have a sale every other week due to all their holidays! Norstrom has great plus size clothes but... their designer and usual range of clothing seems to cater to small small sizes - according to a girlfriend who shops there for that reason and she can be anywhere from a 6-10 in Australian sizes.
    They also send direct to Australia for most clothing items. Some they don't though but a US shipping address solves that!
