larger sizes and measuring in general

I am looking for larger sizes, but every time I see a sales post, everything seems to be smaller. I am in general an American size 16-18 (I am a bit more top heavy). I have pored over the actual brand sellers that are recommended, and found very little in them to be big enough.

For you bigger folks, where do you find bigger sizes? Is it possible? Or do I need to just learn how to sew these things myself?


and in general, when I browse a sales post, the measurements given often seem much to small. Do most people lay the garment flat, and then measure it? Because then that would be only a half-width measurement.

Thanks in advance!

ETA: Thanks for the advice! I'm not even worried about brand or not, actually, as long as it's cute. :3 So I'm perfectly happy going with offbrand folks or even custom. I just have never really made something this fancy myself, so was hoping for some place that I could buy. thanks!
