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.

Yeah! I bet that felt awesome! Congratulations! Now, get off the computer and go flaunt your hotness in your new wardrobe all over the place!

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.

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!

go flaunt the hotness!!

Recently I've found that I don't like a lot of what Lane Bryant is putting out on their shelves. The styles are generally unflattering and when I do find something I like the price is just ridiculous. If I'm going to spend that much I prefer to shop at Macy's - pricy, but much higher quality.
Kudos to you for finding such great deals. I'll have to add Burlington to my list when I next go out hunting for clothes.
