I remember when I used to go clothes shopping when I was a fatty...size 24W...you know...the largest size in some plus size sections of stores.
Selection was limited and I usually chose the piece of clothing that made me look the least horrible. It was never very fun....kind of a chore.
Now, when I go shopping, I have a new rule. I have to LOVE the item before I will buy it. It has to make me feel FABULOUS and skinny. No exceptions!
The problem with this plan? The selection in the size 4s and 6s are just as limited as the plus sizes of my past. Especially at my usual shopping locations: TJ Maxx, Marshalls, ROSS, etc.
Here is the evidence...if one is a size 10-16, there are TONS of choices. Here's a photo from yesterday's shopping adventure:
Now here's the same aisle, but in my size range. So many less choices.
Let me clarify, I am not complaining one bit...because I just push my shopping cart over to the Juniors section and there are TONS of choices for a shorty like me over there :)
