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.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
