I really like Loft, and buy the majority of my clothes there. Funny thing is, my 18 year old DD does too, yet we look different and age appropriate. When I hit goal, I'm going to go to The Limited and Banana Republic for some work staples (too expensive for transition clothes for me).

CJ Banks--I haven't had any luck with their pants, but I love their tops, sweaters, and jackets.

Well...right now, my options are limited but the places I covet (and buy accessories, and get ideas I try to reproduce in the VERY LIMITED big girls stores) are Boden, JCrew, a little bit of Garnet Hill, some Anthropologie, Gap,and Banana. Tory Burch and Calypso St. Barth are also favorites.

I am not waiting to hit goal to shop in nicer places. I'm a slow loser, I won't be blowing through sizes. I may not replace my whole wardrobe every 15 pounds, but I've waited long enough to buy the clothes I love. I'll donate, alter, or sell at consignment as they get too big but I am not shopping in the big girls stores one SECOND longer than I have to.

Take a look at the home page of 3FC there is a tab that says plus size. They list EVERY SINGLE plus size site out there. It's really informative. I've never heard of lots of them but I've looked at some of the sites and they are pretty nice. Something for evereyone.

I don't think the poster needs plus size anymore, at 124 pounds.She has lost over 100 pounds a great accomplishment.

LOL Bargoo. Nice pick up on the OP's awesome weightloss!!

I think we all assume around here if someone is having any kind of issue or question it's always in relation to a higher weight.

Christopher Banks is their other store, which carries regular sizes (CJ Banks is 14 and up)

When it comes to buying myself clothes, I mostly go to Goodwill. I usually go there to get clothes for work as they get stained anyway...so don't care to spend much money on them. Sometimes I get lucky and find stuff that looks good, but is gently used.

I also like to shop at Cathrine's and Target. I can't afford much trying to raise a special needs son on a 30-hour-per-week income. Still, I'm happy that I can afford what I can.

I'm not 40 but close enough.

The Goodwill is my best friend during my weightloss and constant size changes. If I need something in particular, Macy's clearance racks with a coupon is the first place I head to.

I mostly like to dress 'young' Otherwise my more conservative clothes at this point come from Old Navy and a few items from GAP. I'm only now getting the full effect of ,non plus sized' shopping. I love the 'normal' apparel they offer and plan to venture out as I drop more.

Added Kohls but prefer the juniors section there. Rock Rebulic&Jennifer Lopez are so-so.
