How large does women's clothing run in Japan?

Q. I'm going to Japan in a few weeks and I'd like to do some clothes shopping while I'm there. I'd like to go to the young, trendy shops, but I don't know if they'll have clothes that fit. I'm a size 8-10, and 5"7 with a C cup; will I be able to find clothes at trendy Japanese shops, or even at Japanese department stores (that aren't American labels, I didn't go all the way to Japan for that)? Or will I have to go specifically to a plus size place, which would hurt my ego since I've never done that in the US and which probably wouldn't have a great selection. Also, I wear a 7 1/2 shoe size, I should be able to find shoes easily, right?

A. shoes- you'd be a size 24.5 or 25 (its in centimeters)
and thats the biggest size that most shops make shoes in...its ridiculous!! whenever i go, im always at the "big shoes" corner since im also a 7.5 too.
clothing- ok, im a size 2 or 4, s or m at the abercrombie here. but over there, i once did not fit into an XL pair of pants. im a size 9 there (9 is the standard in Japan. the next is size 11, one size smaller is a 7, and those are the only 3 sizes they usually have a department stores) for tops. as for bottoms, lets just say that the XL pair was tiny. i just forget about the pants when i go there. plus, they dont have the best jeans anyway. the proportion just does not fit. its mostly their tops.
they also have the cutest bras. they will have sizes for everyone. theyre extremely lacy and colorful.
dont feel bad if some of the clothes run in only small sizes. if you look at them, japanese people all have the same body type. half of the stuff i try on usually do not fit right. (too short, too small, too thin)
and they make the cutest shoes and theyre really easy to walk in since japanese people walk everywhere.
and im 5'5 if that helps.

what to get:
bags (wallets too)
accessories- rings, necklaces, watches, etc.
socks & bras (usually sold in the same store)
sun dresses

what not to get:
formal dresses (800 dollars ea)

what to try:
they have amazing crepes in harajuku (are you going there?)
pet clothing

hope this helps
if you want me to add stuff, just write it in your question description and i'll check back

Question for women with wide feet?
Q. I have wide feet (like a duck, much wider across the toes than at the heel) and thick ankles. Can someone give me the name of a fashionable store (other than Naturalizer, shop there a lot) that I can get a nice, "non-grandma", pair of shoes. I need some more variety.

A. I have Fred Flinstone feet, as a friend so delicately puts it, and I usually have pretty good luck at PayLess Shoes. They have trendy shoes in larger sizes, as well as in wide width. Also, if you don't mind internet shopping, try the following for a decent selection of shoes:
