A question for the ladies please regarding clothes and sizes

I have recently lost 70lb. The last time I was in Florida I shopped at Lane Bryant and Avenue etc. I am still a UK size16/18 which I believe is a 12/14???? in the US.

Will "normal" stores carry these sizes or will i still need to shop in the "woman" section

Thanks in advance

Nope, you should have no problem finding those sizes in the "regular" sizes.

(and congratulations on your hard work and commitment! )

Sorry US lovers but you are wrong on this one. We are 2 sizes down so the OP is correct. Size UK 16/18 is a US 12/14

Well I've been wearing the wrong size clothes for the last 30 years! lol I always thought they were only one size down, I must be even bigger than I thought I was!!
