Shoppingguide: London with a plus

London is a great shopping destination as a plus size woman. The British designers has a fine sense of female body, and is also not plagued by fine sensations, as sometimes you can get an idea of that the Danish designers. In England it is more the rule than the exception, to the various brands goes up to a size of 50 or 52.

whether you’re on a small or an infinite budget, there are plenty of shopping opportunities. Below you will get the most central addresses, but a great many of the sliders has several shops in London.
