Top shop- One of the most popular Co's run by the Burton group and have nation wide stores just about in every major town or county in the UK.
Though from being a consumer and indeed having had ample opportunity to visit a store as many times as I would like I don't.
No this is not my way of boycotting them and I can assure you I hold no crosses or grudges against them I just don't fit into their size limits. Unfortunately for myself I am indeed what some people in modern day society might class as a large lady and though some of the ranges and styles that Top shop stock they only cater for the more moderate sizes, which is fine, but it would be nice to see some of their gear come in bigger sizes then as far as they do currently go.
Though on the up side The Burton group also own Evans aswell which is great for some except one snag,well for me at least, the clothes on offer generally tend to be of different styles and ranges and I find don't offer the same appeal that some of the stuff in Top Shop does.
I understand and accept that styles of clothes have to differ for larger people due to different cuts in the design and extra material added during production but putting all that aside, my father is a tailor, I can come up with a pattern of something sold in Top Shop in smaller sizes and get great copies of the same garment made in bigger sizes!
Though some admittedly don't look the same on bigger people but then they won't as everybody is different and even for slimmer people what suits your best bud won't necessarily suit you thats just how the cookie crumbles!
Anyway my point is, finally, it would be great if shops like Top shop that do such great stuff would think and maybe even consider going just abit larger then they go at the mo. (Some of us would be eternally grateful, as even large people often socialise and worry about what to wear!)
Anyway thats me excuse me while I go and resume my diet!
