Decided to take myself shopping today.
For one thing, I was in desperate need of a new bra.
I have come to terms that I no longer need a D cup.
I also thought I would try on some jeans while out.
This. Is. Overwhelming.
Okay, seriously, there are so many clothing choices when not shopping in the plus size section. I really had no idea. I have been over weight my whole life. This girl has never entered a non-plus size area.
I still feel awkward there, like I don't belong there yet. Like is anyone looking at me and wondering why I am looking at clothes in this section?
I felt I was wandering here...wandering there...picking up one thing...then getting distracted, the store was practically spinning....in the dressing room, one size was too big, the other was too small. I ended up leaving with no jeans.
Tried on about 50 different bras. Some left me with boob skin hanging out the top weird, some with skin under my arm pits hanging over the sides...Ugh!
I did end up finding 2 bras. Hopefully they will work/hold up in the "real world".
I don't know if shopping now is any easier. I left a little frustrated. Not planning on going back to a store for clothes for awhile.
Anyone else having these experiences?!?
