    I'm curvy (36D - 28 - 38) and have such a difficult time finding clothes that I absolutely hate shopping for them. Thanks to my bust, I'm too big to fit into "regular" tops and and sundresses, but because the rest of me is relatively small "plus" sizes are much too large. The best luck I have (for work clothes, anyway) is Dress Barn. I'd love to find cute, in-fashion stuff but it doesn't seem to be in the cards.

    We're going on a tropical vacation in a few weeks and I was spefically looking for sun dresses, which appears to be impossible. My breasts don't sag but they're large enough that I'm not comfortable not having any support at all. And don't even get me started on cute lingerie that's also comfortable enough to sleep in!

    Are there places to shop that I'm unaware of?! Any suggestions?! I hate to think that I just have to resign myself to buying large clothes then paying extra to have everything tailored.

    i have these issues. i'm a slim 36E
    nothing that fits my waist & hips will go over my tits.
    anything that fits my tits will hang like a sack.
    i mostly just wear whife beaters & stretchy t-shirts.
    it's frustrating as hell! but i still love shopping.

    Anyone else hate shopping?

    Sweet Mother of Mercy child, wash your mouth out with soap!

    I'm a short curvy 36E and I live to shop.
    Trinny and Susanna are my fashion idols with their "What not to wear" and I do as they suggest for my figure and I buy to "fit the tits" and get the rest tailored.

    Forgive me if I can't commiserate. I'd just about kill for a figure like yours. :redface: I am built like a paper towel roll, even in my younger thinner days I never had a waist. Until
    32 I was like the roll without the paper towels but with a butt; now I'm more like a double roll of Bounty with a booty. :lmao:

    Why should you be different than the rest of us? :confused: I'm only 5'8" but I have long legs and arms. Yet I am often too short and slight of build for tall girl shops. They assume if you have a 33" inseam you are built like Wonder Woman. NOT! I always have to have the sleeves let down on suit jackets and have trouble buying winter coats because the sleeves are often 3" above my wrist bone. :irked: Pants that are long enough are often too big for my thick waist. :261: Don't get me started on shoes. I wear a 9.5AA they are neither inexpensive nor easy to come by.


    I count myself as lucky though, because I am not built like my friends mother-in-law. She is a size 18 on the bottom and a 12 on top with sloping shoulders. She has no butt, she is all hips. :frown1:


    Oh and I LOVE to SHOP! :smile:

    Clothes shopping? Yes, I hate it. Even if I've found something I like, I'll bring it home and have to match it with some thing from my wardrobe. It's depressing.

    I prefer nudity.

    Have you thought about finding something that fits the top and having the bottom part altered to fit?

    I would think if you found a good seamstress, she may be able to even make up some cute dresses for your trip.

    I also hate shopping but because my bottom is larger than my top - pain in the butt for swimsuit shopping - so I love LandsEnd Tankini's because you can mix and match different size top & bottoms.

    i like shopping for everything else except slacks and jeans. when it comes to this i am beyond picky.

    since i'm 5'4" i have to buy my jeans in "short" instead of regular because the regulars are too long. whenever i buy slacks, i have to have them altered no matter what because they cover my feet.

    the problem i come across most often is the pant leg being too wide, and i refuse to buy skinny jeans because they're absolutely hideous and should be a fashion crime. i also stopped wearing a few pairs of slacks i bought last year because they flare out and make me look like i'm wearing my mom's slacks from the 1970s.

    i also have this weird thing where i'm in limbo because i can't fit into jeans from stores that carry the standard 0-12 sizes. but the sizes in the plus-size stores are way too big, so i'm basically screwed.

    anyway, after being sick of all the frustration i avoided this problem by been sticking to skirts and dresses. i hardly even wear jeans anymore. i have one pair that still fits very well... but the rest, forget em.
