Where to shop for regular size work clothes?

I was sleeved Aug 15 and am making it into the regular size clothes - yay! But I have no idea where to shop since I've been shopping at Plus size stores for so long. Mostly interested in blouses, slacks for work. Suggestions?

Ross, Marshall's, TJMaxx, Burlington Coat Factory. Also JC Penney's discounted racks

I love Kohl's for work clothes. Not too expensive since I won't be in the sizes long.

Marshall’s and TJMaxx are great go-to’s for work clothes. You’re going to go through them pretty fast so try to get pieces that mix and match best.
Congrats 🤗

Thanks! I tried Marshalls today and didn't really fine anything but I did have luck at Kohl's. So many clothes to choose from now! It's overwhelming. But in a good way I suppose [emoji4]

P.s. I'm going to try selling all my larger size clothes to a consignment shop for money before taking to Goodwill. I've got some really nice work clothes in particular that I think people will want. Never did consignment before so I'll see how it goes. 20181230_191845.jpeg

Macy's Alfani pants have been my go-to. Relatively good pricing for work pants, good cut and quality, and I can just slide down the sizing scale in the same cut because they've always got those pants in stock. I'd avoid blouses and stick to sweaters for this winter - your boobs are about to do strange, unnerving things and the button gap is killer.

So depending on what job I get first time re-entry into the working world with zero clue on how to build a professional wardrobe. Help me.

I've been doing Rent the Runway Unlimited as I'm dropping sizes. It is $150 a month but that is less than I would spend to replace my wardrobe every time I drop a size. They have options up to 3X but they seem to have a lot more in sizes 0-20. I have a referral code if anyone is interested in trying it out https://rtr.app.link/e/2rizVmN9TU you can get your first month for $99.

For anyone who wants to try a less expensive clothing rental program or one with more plus size options, I've done Gwynnie Bee in the past https://closet.gwynniebee.com/. It's about half the price but you only get two garments at a time. With RTR you get four at a time.

Sooo when I was dropping sizes quickly, I totally relied on the clearance racks at Kohl’s and Target.

Now that I’m dropping sizes a little more slowly, I’ve fallen in love with Loft! Such beautiful garments and I get so many compliments!

I’ve been weighing in at a stable weight for a bit, so invested in some banana Republic Sloan pants. Very good, though need to be dry cleaned instead of washed.

Nordstrom Rack’s having one of its massive sales if you know how you fit in a brand and want something nice that’s been discounted.
