Default Plus sized clothing

I've noticed many sites advertising 10xl or even 12xl clothing but when you log on to them they really only go up to 5 or 6xl and often have very limited stock in those sizes. So, in your experience, who does the best lines in very big clothing and how big do they go?

It depend o what type of clothes you are looking for, as to how the sizing runs. There are some online retailers that go to 10X in men's clothing. Women's sizes run smaller do it is hard to tell without more specifics.

This also is a transatlantic issue.

Seeing you're based in the UK - on the Eastern shore of the Atlantic, clothes sizes generally are offered in a more limited range than in the US.

Regular plus-size women's clothing in Europe mostly only goes up to a US26/UK30. Larger than that selection becomes very limited, like mostly stretch-material basics.

In answer to the question of what I'm looking for, both t-shirt, shirts and trousers for me, dresses, jeans and t-shirt for my missus. Partly thinking of the future more than now.
