Liz Claiborne's large sizes store. Sizes 14-22 (tell them you
want larger sizes!), some petites. Clothes are well-made and
somewhat expensive. Their service is attentive -- the saleswomen
follow you around the store pointing things out that you might
be interested in, holding clothes for you, helping you
coordinate. Their pants seem very well-made -- the one with
buttons at the waist all have two buttons so the waistband sits
nicely. Most have some elastic in the waist too.

A poster reports: "All they asked was my height and weight (5'6"
and 450), and they provided me with a gown (size 509) that fits
beautifully. I also needed a larger cap, and they provided that
as well. The best part is that they didn't charge me any more
for mine than they did anyone else. (It was less than $20.)"
