yep in the uk shops do only go up to like a 16, unless you go into pluss size shops. my mums pluss size (although according to that web site so am i lol, im a uk 14/16 with 38 bust). if you go into most pluss size shops in the uk they are seriously awful. they expect pluss size women to dress like a frilly barbie doll! admitedly i havent been in one back in the uk for a couple of years as i refuse to go it. last time i did i ended up telling the magager who ever buys the clothes should be shot as they have no clues about larger ladies lol. not sure i should go back again hehe. esp as at the time i was a uk size 8 hehe.
i hate the pluss size thing as well, in some places it starts at a uk 14!!
i swear the clothes are designed by gay men for young boys to wear not women! but thats just me (not anti gay at all, just dont want clothes for women designed for men lol)
anyway will shut up as this is something that has annoyed me for soo may years now
