    Tips anyone?

    Any cool designers that manufacture these sizes?

    I find a lot of cool clothes sizes s,m but they are way to big for me. I fit
    perfectly into YL and 14-16 though. But noone seems to be manufacture those
    sizes.

    I do a lot of second hand shopping, but sometimes it would nice to buy
    something NOT used.

    I hear Helmut Lang makes kind of slim clothes, haven't checked that out yet.

    There was an article about this very subject in one of the British papers about 3 months ago. They sent a reporter to many of the designer boutiques to find out what sizes were carried. If I remember correctly the largest size found was a 12 and that was in only 2 shops. If I can find the article archived I will post it.

    Yeah, most designers actually carry up to (what they call) a size 12 US... But in all honestly, a lot of these clothes (esp. Dior from personal experience) are cut quite small so a 12 is usually about an actual US 8-10.

    I believe she is asking for very small sizes. YL= Youth Large, and 14 and 16 are the largest sizes in girls.
