Default Good-bye lane bryant! hellooooo burlington! new clothes!

I went shopping today, for the first time in like 10 years someplace other than lane bryant or torrid.

I went to burlingtons.

I got 7 shirts, 2 slacks, 1 jean (WHICH ARE SUPER AWESOME) and a pair of shoes for the price of 2 shirts and a bra at lane bryant.

I'm poor, so this is great.

I spent 133$.


Also, I bought 22's that are big enough to slip on over my hips without unbuttoning them (but the 20's are still a smidge to small) and I bought 2 X shirts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was 4 X this time last year.

How exciting. Lane Bryant's clothes never fit me right, but I never really had any other options so I've spent years wearing ill-fitting clothes. It's always fun to have more options.

It's not that some people have willpower and some don't. It's that some people are ready to change and others are not.

Haha I know the feeling I have no clue where to shop anymore it was always lane bryant, torrid (online), or the local target. I went into Sears the other day and was a bit taken back by all the choices and the fact I wasn't confined to one little corner.

Congrats! Woo Hoo for almost being in size 20 and close to being under 250!

Woohoo! I hear you on Lane Bryant prices, my wallet cries a little every time I need more clothes! Being able to shop other places than plus sized specialty stores is so nice.

lottie--That is fantastic!!!! I love to bargain shop! I've seen ads for a burlington around here, but haven't been. I'm going to have to check it out at some point. Great job w/ the smaller sizes and your finds!!!!

I can't wait to stop shopping at places like Lane Bryant and Avenue. I really, really want to just leave the "plus size" section altogether! I look forward to walking into a normal clothing store and pulling a 12 off the rack instead of a 20!
