The camisoles from Silhouettes with the bra inside are VERY nice and supportive. Even though I'm not very big on top, I still want more support than you get from the kind with the shelf bra in them.

Uh, yeah, clothes stink for PLUS size. When I was a size 14 to 16 crossdresser... not much good stuff. When I became a size 4 to 8, an explosion of beautiful clothes!

I found some at Roamans. They were zip up, not pull on.

The Avenue had some very cute wide calf boots for this past winter season. I think most of them are gone now.

The only problems I have with my arms is that I have some dermititis breakouts on them (just the top part of my arms). I still wear tank tops, but I do try to hide them with some foundation (which works most of the time). It's a dry skin problem since moving to Arizona 8 years ago. It does clear up, but will flare up at times when I didn't put enough lotion or something.

But other than that, I never had problems wearing tank tops. I just wear a large size (so my stomach is coverd up and it's not too tight on me).

I think they should make plus sizes with enough fabric in the seams to adjust it if you want. There are too many shapes of plus sizes and it just clings to people in all the wrong places. AND have it on affordable clothing.

Plus fabric weight. I think that is a problem with all female fashion is they try to chintz out of that and it never looks good.
