    I shopped at Ralph Lauren Woman before surgery because everything was so tailored and I could better hide my size...and now that I am a size 4-6 since surgery, I still shop at Ralph Lauren; I 'm just no longer have to attach the "woman" part to it! LOL...I have also added Armani Exchange, Ann Taylor and Talbot's petite to the list....for the first months, I didn't buy regular retail because I could only wear things for about a week before they were too big, so resale shops, Goodwill and consignment stores were where I bought my "transition" clothes...I am still losing, but now I am a little better about getting myself something brand new and being able to wear it longer...I also unpacked boxes of jeans and work clothes that I have hoarded for years hoping to get back into them, and now I finally have!!

    Yippee for us!!

    I LOVE that dress. Gorgeous. This is something I have not even dared to think about. But if I admit it, I would just like to be able to go to the mall with the girls I work with at lunch and browse without people staring at me like "What are YOU doing in this department??" And they are dying to take me shopping, so that they won't have to see me in my fallback stretch pants and tee shirts anymore. They have been threatening me with a call to "What Not to Wear" for years.
    Best,
    JLE

    You and I must share a body type. I have a HORRIBLE time finding pants because if they are big enough in the waist they are clown-pants-baggy in the hips and the legs. And if they are close to fitting in the legs/hips/thighs, I can't get them buttoned. It's a big pain, and I look forward to the day when I don't have to worry about it anymore!!

    As for where I want to shop, for me my new dream is pretty specific. Halloween is HUGE in my neighborhood (the police actually close down my street and the two streets on either side because there are soooo many kids and families wandering around), but it's been years since I dressed up. Even plus sized costumes tend to be fitted and slinky, and I refused to wear one. I am a big GLEE fan, and next year I want to be a Cheerio for Halloween!!

    My wife laughs, but I had to post here. My son is narrow waisted, 6'2", 195. Makes me sick. But he was joking with me and dared me to try on a pair of his jeans. After we found they fit, he explained they were a little big on him, but they fit! Now I shop at Aeropostale like my kids. Also have some Gap jeams that I really like. Went from a size 48 waist to a 33" currently! keep your dream going. It will soon be reality!

    My shoes are all looser too! I also noticed today that even in tighter clothes, my back is now flat. No bulges around the bra strap. I've also gone from the last hooks on the bra straps to the first hooks. Love it!
