I'd be happy to just have more than one clothing store option in the entire mall...and even at that store (lane bryant) I can only fit into the largest size!

Hahahah yes! I know that feeling so well. :P

I'd love to be able to comfortably shop Victoria's Secret, Forever 21, Express, Urban Outfitters, and to feel relatively safe ordering something online, for example from Etsy or Modcloth.

Oh....just dreaming of the day.

I don't have any specifics really, but I just want to be able to walk into any or most stores and fit into anything. Before I restarted my journey in January I was teetering right on the edge of only being able to fit into plus size. I got a Macy's gift card for Christmas to buy some work wear and I did not fit into any regular sized blazers and in the plus sized section they only had ONE style (really?!) and I bought it even though I didn't like it. Also, I can't wait to find jeans that fit. I've been wearing jeans with a worn out hole between the thighs for like 6 months because I have been unable to find any to buy.

BUT changes are already happening and it's exciting. For example, I haven't been able to fit into Victoria's Secret PINK yoga pants because they only go up to size Large. My little sister wanted to buy some the other day and I decided to try a pair on while she shopped and to my surprise they fit! I know they are essentially stretchy workout pants, but I was still excited.

Oh my goodness....Victoria Secret, obviously! I think that's pretty much every girl's dream! LOL

Modcloth, Retro Glam, PinupGirl, Unique Vintage, etc...I'm digging their 40's and 50's style of clothing, only none of it fits me right now...UGH

Anthropologie is my favorite store! The clothes are so unique, timeless, quirky but chic I wear them for years and always get compliments.

I love Gap for jeans and casual pants.

It might sound silly, but I love that I can buy cloths at Costco. I have shopped there for 20+ years. The last few months are the first time I could buy cloths there!!! A real victory

I want to shop more at H&M and (don't laugh) Forever 21. I know F21 is juvenile and I'm in my 30s but I'd choose age-appropriate clothes, of course. :P

I agree. I just bought some jeans and capris at Costco and was so happy. Nice to see my size in their store.

I'd love to go in ANY store and not feel like the associate is thinking "What in the world does she think she's doing here? Our clothes won't fit her!" I always feel so self-conscious.

It would be nice to fit in H&M again (though I am not very happy with them and their whole photo-shopping regular sized women to make them look plus sized...ugh). It would be nice to walk in a store and know that I will fit in any of the clothes, not just the largest size (if that). I'm excited to see how my style will change when the options open up!

Honestly it doesn't matter how much weight I lose, I STILL won't be able to shop at most of these stores. Maybe for shirts I guess, but I will always have to order my pants online because it's really really hard to find a 37" inseam.

I have no clue. I've been such an alien to fashion since I'd never been able to shop outside of stores like Walmart or Lane Bryant. Only recently have I barely been able to step outside of plus sizes, and I'm getting a feel for what I like through thrift shops. I really have no clue what stores carry what kind of styles (and I'm still kind of intimidated to further explore the mall).

This actually happened to me in my early teens. I think I was 14yrs old when I walked into a store in Europe and the saleslady immediately said to me "We don't have anything in your size here." I wish so hard that I could forget that ever happened. I do remember though that I was going in there to buy a gift for someone else, not even anything for me. So they hurt me for no reason.

I don't have a favorite store really as I tend to shop at TJMaxx and Marshalls. I just never want to wear plus size again. Or even the upper regular sizes. Clothes really started look cute at 12. Even better at 10 and 8 and SO many more options.

I would LOVE to be able to shop at Anthropologie and just grab anything off the rack and know it will look awesome. I LOVE their style. But guess what? Even at a perfect weight, their clothes wouldn't look right on me. They design for fine boned, thin waifs. And that aint never going to be me! Big boobs, barrel rib cage and big hips are not who Anthrolopogie designs for. So why do I like their stuff?
