I don’t currently work in a job where I need to suit it up day to day, but something has suddenly come up this week and I need formal business attire by Thursday. Unfortunately, I’m size 22 and a woman (the men get their own big and tall suit store but there’s no such equivalent for the ladies it seems). Has anyone seen some nice suit jackets for ladies around Canberra?
I’ve been to Belco, Canberra Centre and Tuggeranong and had no luck so far, with all just carrying the one style of suit jacket in Myer which doesn’t suit my shape particularly well (if I’m going to dish out the cash for a suit jacket, I would like it to at least have a flattering cut!). Any alternate suggestions out there?
And, obviously I can’t slim down to a size 12 by Thursday so don’t even bother with any comments like that… trust me, I’ve heard it all before.
