Trying to find something on the high street for a size 18/20 girl is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. So much to rummage through, and no clue of where to begin or whether you’ll even find something. It turns out I could only find three needles in the space of three hours. Some curvy girls might say it’s a miracle—I say it’s a damn shame.

When there’s so much choice online, you might ask: Why even bother hitting the high street? But party season often means last minute invitations and plans, resulting in last minute shopping. I went to most of the stores on Oxford Street to see what they had on offer. Would I find something, or would it end in misery? Scroll down to see.
