One thing I have noticed is that when I was at this weight previously (20 years ago) the limiting factor in fitting jeans/pants was my thigh size. Nowadays it is my middle size. I never had issues with fitting my bust into shirts before -- it was dictated by shoulder width -- but today it is bust-dependent. So age (& after effects of the extra weight) have shifted things around. I am wearing some clothes from college age which is both funny and somewhat satisfying.*

I hear you! When I was in my 20s and 30s I was a 34B. Now I'm a 38D, but I also have very narrow shoulders. I carry almost all of my weight in my hips and thighs. I've always had to customize my pants to account for a smaller waist in relation to Makes finding shirts that fit a challenge. I love my Harley Davidson shirts, but in order to get around feeling self-conscious about how snug they fit, I find myself buying the XLs to get room for the bust, while the shoulder seams hang down my arms :/
