I am so frustrated sometimes by being an hourglass / pear size 12-14. Stores everywhere absolutely forget about me! In the regular departments, pants either don’t fit or look horrible, and when I go to plus size stores, clothes hang on me and look huge. I’m tired of having to get everything altered – it gets so expensive!
Ladies who are in this spot in between women’s and plus size –
Do you exist?
Where do you shop?
Do you have to have everything altered?

I am exactly the same 12-14 more of a pear. New york and Co have jeans for curves. I find that they are one of the few places I can get an ok fit.

@hisprettygirl: Top that off with having super long legs makes finding pants so hard so I feel you.

Sheesh!!! I’m the same!!! I get your frustration.
I am a 12-14 on the bottom and a medium on the top! From afar I look balanced…I have a chest too, but underneath it, I’m not!
I like Daisy Fuentes pants from Kohl’s…I feel they are very flattering and for women with curves. Elle from Kohl’s also makes some fantastic shorts that are very flattering on me.
NY and Co, like someone else said is great for that, too. I feel this is why they still do great business. They make clothes for the average woman.
I am not plus-sized…everything swallows me up.
