It sucks for you, but look at it from the sports equipment producers. You rarely see someone size 26+ doing triathlon, so they won't sell many clothes, so it is unprofitable, so why would they do it?
The leicester flashman seems to be a pool swim, so you don't really need any tri specific clothing. Do the swim in a normal swim suit, then throw shorts and t-shirt over the top at T1. Sorted.
You can then buy Tri specific clothing when you've lost the weight you want to lose. That way you don't have to buy kit twice as well.
