Mini-Goals - Woot new pants and bra :D

View Full Version : Woot new pants and bra :D

08-21-2009, 03:17 AM
My first mini goal in a month, I tried a size 18 pant today and they fit :D Not only that, I've dropped a cup in the bra too and finally able to wear garments from victoria's secret! Usually women don't like losing cup sizes, but for me, it was the most wonderful thing in the world to finally have a choice of wearing pretty bras that aren't from lane bryant! Does anyone else feel this way too?

congratz on your mini goal. I know I can't wait to shop in the regular size sections of stores, and the "sexy lingerie" shoppes. There's a lot more selection in the plus size now then there used to be, but most of the stuff I want to wear goes to large or xl max.

omg i was really excited! who knew bras were so amazing! :D

Congrats! That is awesome. I wish I could shop at VS. I've only managed to go down to a 32F or 30G. No VS for me until I am anorexic I'm afraid.

oh my! 32F? that must be painful for your back :( It would be nice if VS did specialize in selling bras for the bustier ladies :D

Good job! Sexy lingerie is something that I was just thinking about! I want to have a plunging bra that I don't fall out of!

Congrats! You must feel great!

WAy to go!!--it feels good doesn't it!

08-21-2009, 11:24 AM
It certainly does feel good! My first bra without under padding in years, I'm gonna wear it today to try it out! It sounds like you ladies are enjoying the spoils of sexy lingerie as well!

Congrats!!!! I just bought some new fall/winter clothes because my clothes don't fit anymore. But to further motivate myself, I bought 2 pairs of jeans a size smaller that I WILL fit into come end of September at the LATEST!

LOL, no not really painful, you kind of get used to it after a few decades. :dizzy: Actually I don't look that big, if my measurements around the band were a 36 I'd probably be able to wear a D cup without issue.

Congrats--size 18 means you are out of the 20s forever! And VS bras---ooh la la! :carrot:
I totally know what you mean about not being able to buy bras anywhere else until a few years ago, the Ross's where I lived started carrying some really cute plus size bras and panties. Still...having more options would be nice!

08-21-2009, 03:31 PM
that is AWESOME! dropping a size is so great. it really feels like actual PROOF that you're getting smaller. great job!! :carrot:

Congrats! I know that I'm really looking forward to being able to being able to buy pretty bras from places other than Cacique. Smaller band sizes seem to be cheaper too.

Hey, great job! I always remember how crappy I felt when my friend would take me to Victoria's Secret so she could shop for bras, I would spend my time smelling stuff, which was fun, but I felt out of place. I remember I asked one of the girls to measure me for my bra size, she started and then said, "I'm not sure, you are much bigger than our bra sizes." Yeah, felt pretty crappy.
I'm really happy for you, keep going, maybe I'll drop be there soon.

08-25-2009, 11:09 AM
You will be there Luna! The sizes at VS go up to a 40 waistband and that's what I am in now, :D I say the 3fc ladies all go raiding for underwear together!

08-25-2009, 02:46 PM
not yet, but i'm looking forward to that day. you've done really great. wanda

I knew how I felt the otherday being able to shop at walmart for my bras..... I was so happy..... lane bryant bras were expensive...and by the time I would pay for one there; I was able to get 2 bras and a few panties and my 2 shirts.. I am waiting for the VS fun until I get close to my goal weight because I do not want to sink money into bras I will grow out of anyways.

One success of many to follow. Congratulations.

anything that i can buy at VS besides lipgloss would be amazing! Good for you girl ;)

Congrats on the progress! It's reaffirming to have more options at clothing stores (or to now have entire stores available) as you lose weight!

congrats! I set up little 'rewards' for myself, and since I've now hit 208, I went to a department store this morning for new bras (I'm a 38C so have lots of options, thanksfully) and panties. Super fun! Going to toss the big cotton tents that seriously I feel like I could pull up to my shoulders now that I've lost almost 30 pounds. Had a great time - I think I'm going to make bra and undies my 'rewards' as I continue to drop pounds. Somehow it's almost MORE fun than buying clothes that everyone can see!
