What is your favorite clothing shop? Just curious.

Mine, at the moment, is Old Navy because I actually *gasp* fit into their size 18 pants. Soooo can't wait to be able to go smaller. :D

I'm a Target girl myself and Old Navy... not necessarily for clothing, but I'm obsessed with www.etsy.com I could get in serious trouble shopping on that site. You can find some SERIOUSLY cute accesories there... there's a store called 3 Dollar earrings I just bought several pairs of earrings from them... You can search the jewelry and find cute ones for $1 or $2.

J. Crew, Neiman Marcus, Betsey Johnson, American Apparel, and good ol' Macy's. I buy most of my jeans from Victorias Secret though. They're the only place with consistent sizing, decent prices, and they have 36" inseams.

Macy's, NY&Company, Express (shirts only), Victoria's Secret.

Ohh, I ADORE Etsy! I have purchased so many different things there!

There is a Loehmann's on the same block as my job. Let's just say they know my face there by now....:^:

My Favorite store is Lane Bryant only because that is the only store i can get clothes to fit.. But the good news is my size 3's from there which i guess is still an 18 ( i hate how they changed the sizes there)are getting bigger so hopefully next time i go there i will be in a size 2. Then i know i will have other favorite stores..LOL

I do like all the clothes though at Lane Bryant. I could live in there..lol

Haha, all my shirts are from there. They know how to clothe a woman with breasts, what can I say?

I also used to love H&M when I was about 20 lbs lighter.

New here. Hehe. Always dreamed of shopping at papaya and charlotte russe, and forever21 so I go window shopping a lot just to feel one step closer to my goal. Weird I know.

Charlotte Russe & New York & Company. I Like NY & Co. because they carry talls and have great sales. Of course CR has awesome sales too!

Gap and Urban Outfitters. I shop at Anthro in the sale room, but they are way to expensive most of the time.

Honestly? Wal-Mart! Followed by JCPenny's, Old Navy (online mostly), and Ashley Stewart!

I can't wait to be able to shop at some of those stores!! Motivation, people. :P

Oh yeah, I forgot NY& Co - they mail a lot of really good coupons and I usually end up paying 1/2 price for my entire purchase.
I can never find anything to fit at Charlotte Russe - at least at our store they only carry up to size Large. If they had XL I'd be all over it!

Ditto Shutterk. Ditto. After my 4 hour quest for jeans on Saturday, I realized how much I wanted to be able to just walk into a store and pick something out, and not worry if it would fit or not. I used to be able to do that with the Gap. Walk in, pick up a size 12, NOT EVEN HAVE TO TRY IT ON, and walk out.

I WILL be able to do that again. :carrot:

Old Navy, JCPenney, and New York and Company.

I actually bought something at Charlotte Russe a couple weeks ago pretty much only because I fit into it!!! haha...I used to go in with my sister all the time when we would go to the mall, but would never even think I could fit into anything there.

I love H&M, New York & company and JCPenney (JCP for work clothes). Forever 21 has some cute stuff, but I feel like I am slowly growing out of their styles. I like American Eagle too, but I can't afford anything of theirs that isn't on sale, lol. I am on a pretty strict budget.

Being smaller doesn't solve all your problems! Sizing still varies so much at different stores, and different clothes and brands fit different shapes. I love a lot of pants at the Gap, but I can't fit into anything there, the rises are all wrong and the length is wrong... I have a horrible time finding pants that fit.

I really like Delias pants, though all the rest of their stuff is too brightly colored and silly. I mostly shop at thrift stores and Goodwill, but if I had unlimited money, I would shop at White House Black Market. Everything in that store is gorgeous!

The stores that I frequent now because of the sizes are Avenue, Old Navy, Torrid, Lane Bryant, and sometimes Sears. I used to LOVE shopping at Forever 21, NY & Co, Express, Bebe, Guess, Banana Republic, and Victoria's Secret. I can't wait to go back to those stores again!

My favorite clothing store is the one that I own! Looking better in the clothes that I sell is my main motivation to lose weight.

Myer, H&M - I dream of being able to walk into topshop or miss selfridge and just pick up something cute and quirky. hmmm - that would be a very rewarding mini goal...

I love The Limited for work clothes. They have this pair of pants called the "Drew" fit that are stretchy, but not tight, and they are so comfortable. However, I bought a size 16 thinking it's what I would need, and they are way too big - so happy! i guess I have been losing weight before I was counting.

Anyway, I still like Express (I agree - for their shirts. pants are too small still), Bloomingdales (their Acqua line has a lot of great things), Zara (it's hit or miss), H&M, and Banana Republic [at times].

I know this isn't clothing related but I love shopping at whole foods. I can get in SERIOUS trouble there.

...Never thought I would have a soft spot for pretty produce.

Heck yes! I love WH/BM... if only I were a rich housewife....and about 4 sizes smaller.

I am just back to fitting into "normal" people sizes so I'm enjoying Victoria's Secret, Kohls (let's face, their "WOMAN" clothing designs look like curtains or muumuus), Pacific Sunware, etc.

Hi there (I'm new!)

If there are any other Canadian gals on here, I highly recommend Ricki's Fashion. They stock sizes 0-20 and everything is gorgeous! Their blouses are the only ones that actually accommodate my 36FF bust (and that's saying something LOL)

Target (representing employee here hahah! No really their clothes are fab), Old Navy, New York & Company, Metropark USA (can't fit into their clothes yet but i love browsing and can't waait!!), TJ Maxx and Dots.

I love Torrid... have been shopping there for a looong time. :)

I also like Macy's when I'm looking for more high-end stuff.

I used to love Goodwill before I realized they don't really stock too many 2XLs. :(

Aaaand... I love shoes, so I love places like Steve Madden, Nine West, Journeys (I have five or six pairs of Converse sneakers from Journey's... they so rock, and I have a reputation for wearing them with formal stuff. I was tempted to wear them with my cap and gown at my college graduation, but I decided against it.)
