Luckily there are a growing amount of shops online that us plus size ladies can shop from like ASOS, Very and New Look Inspire and at Westfield, Shepherds Bush you can order clothes from these stores (and many more like River Island, George at Asda, Dorothy Perkins) and get them delivered to their new Collect+ Lounge. The lounge offers you the chance to try on your items in one of their changing rooms and if you aren't happy with what you have ordered, the staff will help you return them.
Westfield kindly invited me and a group of other blogger babes the chance to try this new service out. It was such a nice day because instead of getting all my orders delivered to my house and trying on the clothes on my own, I was in great company and we all enjoyed showing each other what we had ordered and flouncing round the changing rooms in our new clothes! They offer you complimentary drinks, I wasn't going to turn down the chance to have a free drink so I ordered a beer - I don't even drink beer! (Non alcoholic drinks are also available btw)
Here are some shots from the day:

You can read all about the collect plus service here and don't forget you can pop into Evans and New Look whilst you are in Westfield as well.
After we had finished in the lounge a group of us headed into the shopping centre for some complimentary cocktails at Searcys and the most almighty feast at Shawa. Both the drinks and food were innnnncredible!!!!
