I have been shopping at Lane Bryant for 10 plus years! I am just curious when I will be able to go into Dillards or JC Penny or Old Navy or the Gap for normal clothes???

What size do they go up to in normal stores?(even if it is a plus size)

Thanks!!!!

I don't know- I guess I'm self-conscious of shopping in regular sized stores. I went shopping out of absolute necessity over the weekend, and still made a b-line for Lane Bryant. I guess the good thing about it is that I'm now in their smallest size 14/16.

I've seen plus-sized clothes in JC Penney- go to the Women's section, I believe that's what it's called.

I found a great shop at Memorial City Mall....Torrid...It is a store for plus-sized women and they start out at size 12 and they have awesome clothes and very "in style" clothes. Check out their website too www.torrid.com. I went there and got some nice stuff. But fair warning, if you buy a pair of Paris Blues Jeans they have some stretch in them and I made the mistake of getting a 16 when I should have gotten the 14's, now after one wear and wash they are too big! So get the tighter with stretch and they will loosen up just fine!

I just checked their sizes and it looks like they go up to a 26 in pants and their tops are sized from 0-4 and they have a size chart to help.

I hope this helps you!

And there is another web site called www.alight.com that carries very nice a stylish plus sizes and I think they go up to a 26-28.

Most stores go up to at least 24. I shop at Foley's and Dilliard's in the Women's department. They have most of the good name brand clothes such as Ralph Lauren, Liz Claiborne and others.

Good post. I was wondering the same thing. I love torrid bras and lane bryant undies.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
