Ht. 5'2", Start: 241 lb, Today: 230 lb (BMI: 42), Goal: 150 lb - The best place for plus size girls to shop is TORRID! Hands down! Visit their website: It is a store for ONLY plus size girls/women! It can be pricey but they always have great sales in the stores. Hope that helps someone!

Don't shop at places that are brand names because you'll be trying to hard to squeeze into something that isn't right for you. Old Navy has nice clothes for heavier people, as does many other places. So don't be discouraged! :):)

Ht. 5'8.5", Start: 165 lb, Today: 165 lb (BMI %tile: 86), Goal: 140 lb - Hey guys! i just wanted to put ina few suggestions of places that are great to shop. first off, totally avoid the brand name stores like hollister/american eagle, etc. they only cater to size 2 girls with no chest or butt >.< but places i've found that have a great diversity (even though i'm usually a large these places are good for all sizes) are macy's/j.c. penney, etc (department stores) and my personal fav, d.e.b., which has a super cute plus-sized section. my friend bought a dress from there for homecoming and looked absolutely stunning!! :) ALSO, forever 21 is coming out with a new line called faith 21, which is specifically for curvylicious girls lol

Ht. 170 cm, Start: 87 kg, Today: 79 kg (BMI %tile: 92), Goal: 50 kg - Golly gee,I cant beleive I acctually bought something from Terra Nova.They only have 3 sizes S,M and L.I can only fit into an L shirt,but my pants size is XXL.Plus,I had to get something for my friends birthday,she is S size,both pants and shirt(luuucky).
But I wanted to buy something for me to get me motivated for my weightloss.You would think size L is large,but no its not at all.Its for a skinny girl with stick legs and no butt,but with broad hips,just like I would look if I lost weight.They are soo cute.You could never buy plus size pants that look that good.And I bought a cool shirt size M.But it doesnt fit around my fat arms lol.Maybe 50 kg is a little low,but many girls taller than me have weight below 60 kg,and I dont see why I cant do it.Plus,I am a medium frame,so I wont look too bony.And my S size friend is as tall as me and a size S and weights 47 kg,but she doesnt look ...

Ht. 5'7", Start: 190 lb, Today: 188 lb (BMI %tile: 96), Goal: 140 lb - hey everyone, so im like not that overweight and I wear a size 14 pants and either a medium large or xlarge depending on the style shirt, but do you guys have big boobs from being overweight cause i'm like a c and im way bigger than all my friends. its so annoying at places like hollister they only ever have xs left on sale espicially. I like ae and aero and forever 21 and old navy are pretty good too. Jc Penny is good for bathing suits. Im pretty tall so i have to buy long jeans which is annoying, but my weight is pretty spread out. What kind of bathing suits do u guys wear like bikinis tankinis or one piece or those funky one pieces. i normally wear tankinis

I used to just slide into their jeans now I can't even pull them on. Also, now I can't even fit into their T- shirts without it looking so tight on me. Now I have to go to older women stores where their shirts just reveal to much.

Ht. 5'2", Start: 151 lb, Today: 151 lb (BMI %tile: 97), Goal: 129 lb - Its really hard for me to buy clothes. Seriously-XL is too small for me in most stores, especially for tee-shirts. Most of my shirts are like band tee shirts and school tee shirts which come in bigger sizes which I order. For me, pants are usually fine, but I usually wear yoga pants instead of Jeans. If you really want jeans, get ones with the material that makes it strechy all over so it wont be skin tight.
