    Women's clothes sizes 25th Sep 17 at 8:03 PM
    Maybe I'm being trivial but I went shopping at the weekend and really struggled to find nice clothes. I'm a size 16-18 so yes I'm chubby but that's not uncommon these days.
    I was really disappointed. What was meant to be a happy trip to get new things for my new job left me feeling even fatter and like some unwanted minority.
    I don't remember Such tiny sizes growing up either. Maybe my memory is letting me down but i though size 10 used to be the smallest now I'm seeing 8 and even 6 as standard. Should I just accept I need to hit the gym?!

    Never happened while I've been in the waiting space at Bravissimo - or the "husband crèche" as m'wife calls it.

    I'm quite lucky in being a reasonably standard menswear size!
    I'm not. I'm tall with long arms and legs. A lot of men's clothing manufacturers seem to think that if you are 6'4" you must also have a 60" chest.
    Advice; it rhymes with mice. Advise; it rhymes with wise.
