    I'm REALLY cross!!

    There's a newish shop that opened in the precinct in my town recently called Republic...anyway I had a look in there the other day and fell in love with EVERYTHING. Found a few things I wanted to buy there and then, but they only had up to a 14 and I'm a 16 up top.

    I thought maybe they'd just sold out of all the size 16's and my friend suggested I look on the website.

    Just looked on their website and they actually ONLY go up to a size 14!! :growlmad::growlmad::growlmad::growlmad::growlmad::growlmad:

    Bloody DISGUSTING!! In a country where size 16 is supposed to be the average clothes size for a woman, what are they thinking?! I actually feel really insulted!

    I suppose it does give me even more reason to lose weight after Christmas but that's not the point! :growlmad:

    Guess I won't be shopping there either!

    Pretty much all highstreet shops go up to a 16 now, if not bigger!

    I've always had trouble finding nice clothes in size 16 or 18. They indeed become bags with sleeves more often than not. Bugger.

    Thats awful!!

    Also with their website they say something is in stock they take money out your account then email to say its not in stock actually so you have to wait for a refund what a daft procedure!!

    The chavvy independent shops always do this too. If they do do a 16 then it tends to be the size of an average 12 anyway.

    Wow, wtf? Maybe you should inform them that that's the average size in the UK? Make a point! That's out of order! :grr:

    Pisses me off !!! They think people who're bigger than a 14-16 WANT to look like sacks of potatoes!!

    The thing is though, you don't have to be "fat" or "chubby" to be a 16. Some people are just big built...they can be lean as anything but still need a size 16. So it can't be that they think people that are a size 16 would look bad in their clothes. GRRR I actually take it really personally!
