Does anyone know where I can find bicycle clothing for a fat girl in the UK? (Online, because I know there's nothing around here in a shop!)

Last time I bought some ,I bought some in the USA, because I couldn't find any here- but they're so big and falling off me now, that I need new stuff.  Unfortunately, I'm still not a *normal* size, so I can't find any to fit me.

I'm looking specifically for baggy shorts (i.e. mountain bike shorts), lycra tights to wear under the baggy shorts, and short/long sleeve shirts.   

I've never gotten food on my underpants!

You might have to do some searching, but I've seen a lot of items on this site in a size 18, and a few up to size 22.

Thanks! 18 is no good, but if they go higher, that may be OK...

M&S do plus side sports wear, you'll be able to get the dry-fit long sleeve shirts and probably the tights/leggings, the shorts you'll struggle with I suspect :(

And sports bras! Zomg, the only place that does them in a 36G :D

Oh also I think I got some addidas +size sportswear from very.co.uk last time I needed some.

Not sure if that helps! :(

Thanks CB, I will look at M&S for the dry-fit stuff! That will be a help at least, because I hate mountain biking for a few hours (like I did this weekend) and then getting back in the car to get home and being drenched and then freezing in sweat alone.
