Lang Bryant and Me...Really!!!

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

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.

    The salesgirl lied to you.
They DO have smaller sizes in bras, 36C is on their website and in the stores, and some of those 14W pants run really small! Especially the expensive designer brands.
Of course you have no need for the "Lame Giant" clothing there, when you have unlimited choices in regular stores.

    Wow, now thats the way to stick it to her! LOL Talk about trying to make a sale. Sheesh You deserved to hold your head high and point out to her that you don't need that store. That was a proud day for me too....when I was able to buy my 1st piece of clothing in the ladies dept. instead of the plus size dept. You deserve to feel proud!!

    How rude of her! I bet she felt like an idiot after you asked her for specific sizes.

    emoticon That's awesome! I bet that felt amazing! I know that one of my life goals is to never have to darken the doorway of a Lane Bryant for myself ever again (too expensive anyway). emoticon emoticon
