    Hello. I had never even heard of the store until you mentioned it and I live less than 20 minutes from there. I am a Macy's shopper and I plan on heading to Macy's!!!.....Jr. dept.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I won't be able to fit everything there and it won't be disappointing because the Misses section has just as equally cute clothing! They have the best clothes even in the Macy Woman's section. Also the Gap! and Victoria's Secrets for my bras and undies. ~ Maybe just Wal Mart......Lol

    Never heard of them but CUTE DRESS!!

    I haven't picked a store... just a size LOL... can't wait to buy a size 14 again.
    Actually there is a trendy boutique a few miles away that I would love to shop in but I don't even go in there because they don't carry plus sizes.

    I love this question, I love clothes and shopping! I want to be small enough to buy Victoria Secret Bras, for sure. I like Banana Republic and Ann Taylor Loft and the Gap and Anthropologie (would have to get stuff on sale) and jeez, I could go on and on- but like Christy said, I'd like to be too small to shop at Lane Bryant, the Avenue, or any plus sized section. I want to wear normal sized clothes in the "regular" sections of stores. I bought this cute denim skirt and cardigan set at Talbots for my birthday one year when I got back to 16s, and I still have it- it's still nice. I'd like to be able to buy nice things and to wear them for years without changing sizes!!!!

    White house black market is way up there on my list. I love clothes, though haven't shopped anywhere but walmart or target in the past few years because I refuse to spend $$$ on clothes that I've considered "temporary".

    My new favorite store is Forever 21!

    http://www.forever21.com/

    I used to go there with my daughter all the time and just look around, wishing I could wear those cute little things and now I need to get my fix every couple of weeks. Plus, it's cheap so that's perfect for temporary clothes! I love their jeans! They're $25.

    What a fun question! Beautiful dress you picked! I can't wait until I can buy and fit into Victorias Secret, but really, I just want to be able to go anywhere AND not ask " do you carry plus sizes"

    I'm almost to goal and have really enjoyed shopping. I hated it before! I'm down from a tight 18/20 to a comfortable size 10. It feels great to
    buy "normal" size clothes again. A couple of good friends gave me clothes in several sizes along the way and that really helped. I have been
    dropping sizes so quickly I'm not sure what I would have done without the hand-me-downs. I have bought a few pieces myself but have regretted
    a couple of more expensive purchases because I only got a few weeks wear out of some items. I'm going to try and hold off on buying anything
    except second hand until the weight loss levels off. My goal is 150 but at the rate I'm losing I think it's very possible I will get lower than that.
    Good luck to all of you. I hope you are having as much success as I have been having. This has changed my life!

    I'm mostly a jeans and t shirt girl but would like at least one really nice suit from Bebe, but I think they're for petites. When I'm thin I'm not petite but if anyone wants to buy me a classic Chanel suit come on down!
