This is probably an odd one, but does anyone know of a UK web retailer (except Pure, who only go up to an 18) that specifically sells modest clothing?  I've looked in all the online Islamic clothing shops I'm aware of but can't find what I'm looking for.  I'm in search of layering tops, sleevies*, that sort of thing. 

  I bought some lovely summer clothes and didn't get the chance to wear them, and I thought if I layer them over a shell type top I could get away with it in this colder weather.  I know I could just get a long-sleeved t-shirt from Tesco or Evans in a size smaller but a) the material is wrong and b) they're usually too short by the time they traverse over the boobscape!   They'll also come in handy if we go over to Turkey next year.  Unlike a certain person *cough*Catherine*cough* I won't be wearing a thong bikini.

TIA guys.


*got some sleeves from Al-Mumirat.

Ta for looking, you're a star! Buuut I hate them with a passion.

Let me explain *wavy time lines* Last year in November they sent me a 20% off voucher for a first order. After a long complicated sign-up process I put the voucher code in, and it was put on my user page. I picked out £90 of stuff, all "In stock -delivered in 3 days" and paid extra for Express Delivery. Got all the way through checkout, then got a pop-up that said "Sorry, there is a delay on the following item". It listed everything I'd ordered, and gave an estimated arrival date of February. Swines. Also Marisota and Simply Be are the same company with the same stock, but one's aimed at fatter old people and one at fatter younger types. Huzzah for transparency!

Oh and their site? Inaccessible is an underexaggeration. Cluttered and completely broken by any text size above 'smallest'.

awwww shit!
didn't know about the companies though!
Guess you could try yours, but that's a high-street shop. Evans also have a website too.
Sometimes, I just go buy cheap shit from asda.

I hope you find something!
