Wanted XXL wrap skirt

Hi

 

I'd really like a wrap skirt for ballet class but I am struggling to find them in larger sizes.  Does anyone know where I might obtain one?  I'm about a size 18 in street clothes and it seems impossible to find anything close online.  I don't want to go to physical shops because I'm concerned people will laugh at the fat woman doing ballet (like they did when I looked at shoes in a couple of shops) so would prefer online.  Does anyone have any ideas which makes I could try?  I love my ballet class and while there isn't a class uniform I'd like to look more like a dancer when I do it. 

 

Thanks

Don't know if I'm allowed to suggest myself but I sew ballet wrap skirts on etsy for people of all sizes (it started out as I was struggling to find ones long enough) - the largest I've made is a 48" waist so far - and would be happy to make you one to fit your measurements.

 

I currently only have plain chiffon options available on my shop - https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/601772920/womens-ballet-skirt-custom-size-choose

but do have lots of other patterns available - more fabric examplesfacebook page

 

I keep meaning to get serious about it. advertise more and turn it into a proper business because I am fed up that as a tall size 10 I am often an L/XL and almost sized out of dancewear despite being relatively on the small side of adults who dance so want to make things that fit everyone.

I'm very happy for you to suggest yourself.  Your skirts look lovely and actually a bit longer than the ones I've seen which is good. I will find a tape measure and send you an order later this week. 

 

I know what you mean about being sized out of things.  It's a real shame that they don't make dancewear in larger sizes as a rule.  I had great difficulty finding a larger leotard with some chest support.  If you made things in larger sizes, I would certainly consider buying them.
