Welcome to TranCHAN. A few terse guidelines:

Hey guys and gals, just got into cross-dressing and want to get some basic clothes.
However, I am more of a bear than a twink, and girl's/women's clothes do not fit me. Even their XL stuff, which is a 16-17 or so, is skin-tight and not to my liking.
I wear a 48-50 chest, 38-40 waist, and 11-12 socks.
Of course, if it's elastic-y it will help.
My question is: what do these sizes translate over to for female sizes, so I can get the proper-sized women's clothing?
Wal-mart, my preferred store, likely will not carry women's sizes in the male equivalent of XL. But if they do, please tell me which size or size number range I should get, based on my above measurements.
Alternatively, my second question is: Is a sex-shop/adult store a good place to find larger-sized women's clothes? I think it would, since they specialize in that sort of thing.
I also for sure want to get panties, with stockings, and a garterbelt, items that hopefully I can find in my big size.
tl;dr: where can I find larger size women's undies and naughty things?
You can't depend on size labels, gotta take your own measurements:
1 just under the armpits2 chest at maximum3 just below your chest4 waist5 hips at desired waistband position6 relative front crotch7 relative back crotch8 trousers inseam9 trousers outseam
You need at least these, I've taken over 40 myself.
I like to buy clothes through eBay, the better sellers include precise measurements. Commercial sites frequently have size charts. Sannas measure every piece of clothing separately.
When I go shopping, I carry a tape measure around with me.
For what it's worth, I wear shoes that range between Euro sizes 39 and 41.5, low rise jeans in sizes 31/34, high rise trousers with a circumference of 80cm, mini skirts in anything between S and children's Euro size 140, thongs size S, tights and stockings in M, tees and tops in M, jackets in L, and I'm a 5'11 @ 69kg.
>>684True, helpful advice. Thanks. I don't really wear "casual" clothing, just undies and socks and stuff. But I will still take measurements into account.
