Al Mariah Mall on Najda near Hamdam. The store is called Splash. Go in, take a left and just before the lingerie section in the back there is a section with larger sizes.

Marks & Sparks sometimes go to an interesting 22, and have the best fuller figure bras I have seen here so far....still trying to get around that they have these thin straps to hold up a DD or E cup, defies gravity, but with a bit of a search you can find them with a wider more supportive strap. For cool casual tops & pants at

M & S go to the bathers section. Alot of the beach coverups can be used as tops quite easily, with a cami underneath. They also have some lovely lightweight knit trousers (which can be shortened to 3/4 or 7/8 length) & excercise wear which goes up to a 22 also.

Another store I have found probably with the best selection of lightweight chiffon overtops (again in beachwear section)is BHS. THere is one at Khaladyia Mall, but the one in Hamdan Street has a better selection. Although alot are longsleeved, I have shortened the sleeves to elbow length and am really happy with them as they are lovely and cool.

Third option is to get clothes made by a tailor. There are lots of options for fabrics - some just behind Hamdan Street, the other place I have found lots of lovely (and some 'interesting' fabrics) was Madinet Zayed Shopping Mall (next to gold souk). Great shopping mall used by alot of local subcontinent families. Lots of fabric shops upstairs. I had a field day in one where there was about 7 or 8 emirati families buying fabric so I thought it was a good option.

Shoes are my biggest problem - being a european 42 makes it nigh impossible to buy anything here!

Oh ya its true to buy plus size women's clothes but now a days you can buy all size clothes online easily. One of my friend purchase one dress from Rocky S collection . She is also come in plus size woman category, but this is not fact that if you are plus size than you can't get & wear designer clothes.

Same here -but ShoeCiti stock 42 in a good enough range. I get my work shoes and casual sandals from there.

There is a Ulla Popken(sp) store in MCC, it is a bit Mumsy at times, but has some nice pieces in there.

Max 0n 6th Street, in between 5th and 3rd, have a range. Also Matalan, in the Mall at Mussaffah (whose name I forget), has another range and both are inexpensive. Try also Evans in Abu Dhabi Mall, Tchibo in Khalidya Mall stock a very few items and I have bought some heavily discounted, lovely size 20 tops at Monsoon in the sales. Happy shopping.
