I checked out American Eagle and the lingerie one someone mentioned...I loved those! Thanks for all the new places for me to shop and browse! It just makes losing weight a lot more fun when you can fantasize wearing some of this stuff!

I'm usually shopping on a budget so I like TJ Maxx and Kohl's. Old Navy was my go-to place back when I was plus-sized, I still shop there pretty often but oddly enough I liked their plus-sized stuff better! I have never heard of Maurice's before but I checked it out and wow! REALLY cute stuff! I think I know where I'm going shopping once I reach my next goal... thanks for the recommendation!

I found an awesome website with super sexy and cute clothing in sizes up to 6 X some even go to 12X. They have evening gowns, club wear, lingerie. Its www.biggalslingerie.com The only problem is they are wickedly expensive, but the stuff is awesome. If I had some extra money to spend on just me, I would so be shopping there.

I don't have a favorite clothing store. Walmart doesn't carry anything except for shoes in my size. Kmart doesn't carry clothing big enough for me nor does Dollar General. We have a GAP outlet locally and a JCPenney's but they don't carry my size except for shoes. Maurice's is the high end boutique here and they do not carry my size either. I have tried the Salvation Army thrift store and a locally owned consignment shop and 99 percent of the time cant find a thing that fits. The only store that has some stuff I can fit into is Catherines but the nearest store is a 2 day drive away. I can't shop online because it is so hard to judge the fit. It gets too expensive to have to send stuff back all of the time. Most of the time I have to buy fabric at Joanne's and make my clothing. There never are any patterns in my size, so I have to play around with smaller ones and try to enlarge them, but usually that doesn't turn out well. I suck at fashion design and sewing, so what I wear isn't flattering usually.
I LOVE Maurices! When I do hit my goal weight, I want to go on a shopping spree and that store is one of the places I'll stop. I also love everything from Forever 21 (which I've NEVER been able to shop at). Even though my sole motivation isn't for looks, it certainly is motivation!
Don't ever let anyone else tell you who you can be
I like Dress Barn and CJ Banks. Both have women's sizes in different areas, but the smaller clothes are SOOOOO much cuter.
