I stopped in at Lane Bryant this morning to look for a top for DD1. The salesgirl asked if she could help me. I told her I was looking for tops in size 4X or 5X. She told me they didn't carry anything larger than a 3X. I told her thank you, that I'd go over to Catherine's. She then told me they had sweaters, bras and pants on sale. I kindly told her, I didn't know DD! bra size, or pant size and would go to Catherine's for tops. She then said, "What about you?" I was a little taken aback. I weighed 320 lbs. at my heaviest and shopped at Lane Bryant, but I now weigh 175 lbs. It took me awhile to accept the body I now have, it took awhile to get rid of the image of the 320 lb me...but I did. Did I still look like I needed Lane Bryant, I believed I didn't, I know I don't. So I asked her if they had bras in 36 DD. She said "No", the smallest size they carry is 40 D. I then asked her did they have size 12 pants...she said "No" they had what was equal to 14W. So I told her that I didn't need anything from Lane Bryant, but would be able to find what I need in the Misses section of any other store. I thanked her for her time and left.
