Anyone else like that?

Bought some new skirts for the hosp the other day (I have to be fairly formal).

Nothing seems to fit properly. I am only supposed to be 14 but somehow nothing looks/ fits right. My legs are very long, which i thought was a good thing till I realised it makes my top half look dumpy!

My friend has a beautiful figure but even she has trouble. She needs a size 14 top and size 8 bottom :o

I'm at the other end! I'm only 5ft 1in and don't have any ankles :-[ Shops seem to think if your short your body will be smaller than regular lenghs, so a size 14 petite is more like a 12R >:( And that's not the casewith me ::)

I'm expected to have arms like orangutans and shoulders like Geoff Capes so T shirts just look ridiculous ;D Also, the really large sizes are only made wider not longer.

It can be hard to get trousies long enough ! They seem to think everyone has little legs. You should see one pair I tried that were labelled as "long". They stopped above my ankles! How trendy ;D

Every time I buy trousers I have to have half the leg taken off cos they're way too long. My legs are as short as my bum is wide ;D

I had a boyfriend once that used to say that it doesn't matter how big a woman is as long as her belly doesn't stick out further than her boobs. I've been paranoid about it ever since ;D ;D

I have short legs so I have trouble getting trousers that don't go on endlessly, I'm not exactly skinny and I have wide feet - so yes, as you can imagine it isn't easy on the clothes front.

The problem is no-one is a particular size all the way down. I can just about do a 12 at the top (no boobs), 14 round the middle, on fat days a 16 on the arse, but I need long trousers. Either we're all freaks or more likely they design clothes for freaks ;D

i need a size 13 ,, a 12 is not comfy and a 14 is a bit big, lol
