Mods, sorry if this isn't allowed!
I'm going to be going to wearing them to a lot of gigs, so i just want something comfy and somewhat plain I can photograph in without having to keep stopping to put plasters on and which wont cost me an absolute fortune and break my heart when they get scuffed to high hell trudging around on the underground.
do they even exist?
I'm wondering where you all buy your basics? Preferably online as it's just easier. Just looking for t-shirts, maybe a coupla vest tops but cheapest of cheap! Size 22/24 ishh :) Thanks
I am in a pickle. I need to find a plain white tailored shirt that buttons all the way up to the collar - long sleeved/short sleeved/whatever sleeved. Preferable not see through is a bonus! I'm a size 22, with a 48" bust, 44" waist.
After a militant hunt round the usual offenders (evans, DP, M+S) I found white tailored shirts, but they all didn't button up to the collar, which is a nuisance. Something so simple should be easy to find, but it's infuriantingly not so! Grr!
Any suggestions? I am always thrifting, but don't normally have much luck with shirts in that area. I could fit my own buttons, but I begrudge buying a new blouse to do so. Pah.
Hope this okay to post- I've already posted this on Fatshionista, but thought those of you who haven't seen it yet (and it will probably get flushed out really quickly by sales posts) might be interested in a review of 2 dreses I got from the ASOS Curve line.
I was quite nervous that they wouldn't fit, but as you can see from the photos, they do! So all you UK size 30s out there, you can buy stuff from ASOS! Yay!

Also street style? Really? Not a very good variety of body shapes and sizes, so poor show for a plus sized fashion blog.
However I thought it would be a good way to get started. I've contacted theoryofgravity, and will be advertising this community in fatshionista this coming friday, so we should have some more blood incoming then!
The general idea is that I'll pick a store, and post a yes, a no, and a maybe. You can disagree or agree with my choices, or post your own yes/no/maybe from the same store.
This week I'm choosing from Yours Clothing.

However I am hoping it will become a useful resource and networking point for fat people with a connection to the UK, be it your place of origin or your place of residence. Outfit of the Days, reviews, commentary on UK fat news and politics? Hopefully we can get all of that in.
Couple of things to note:
1) We are not affiliated with fatshionista, and I doubt their mods are aware of the existence of this comm yet.
2) Do not bring fats drama here please. I'm simply not interested in fostering complaints against the fatsmods. This community is simply about UK fats!
3) I have no set idea about 'sales posts' or anything like that yet, so suggestions would be welcome.
Membership is currently open, so feel free to join and start posting your ideas for this community, if you have any, or post OOTDs and discussion posts. I will try to start myself over the next couple of days!
