UNDERgrown.... Lane Bryant?

I was looking for some longer sleeved undershirts that I could wear this summer under my short sleeve work clothes... figured I'd swing my Lane Bryant because they have always been good to me. (not the price! lol. but they have always fit!)

I asked the gal who worked there for some help, she lead me to the shirts and grabbed a size... she then held it up and apologetically said "the lowest we go is a size 14-16". I automatically said " no problem" thanks. It wasn't until I was in the dressing room that I wondered why she said it that way... I tried the shirt on and what do you know... that shirt was too BIG! Yep, I have under grown Lane Bryant.

Surprisingly, I wasn't very happy about this news.

I was kinda of in shock... like, GREAT... where do I go now? I guess you could say I was in mourning. I know, I know... weird huh? I should have been jumping for joy! I think because I wasn't prepared for the moment to happen.. it took me by surprise.

Of course, after digesting the info... I can now say that I am ecstatic to be moving on. I called a girlfriend of mine (who has lost over 100 lbs) and we figured out a few possible locations to find what I am looking for. So, there you have it. A NSV!

PS!! Just 2 days until my 1 year Bandiversary (Sp?)... CRAZY!!! I'll be posting more on that day.

Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but I LOVE half tees. Check out their website. The sleeves come in different lengths. It's my go to wardrobe choice these days! I've also tried mini mollys- I like them too but half tees are still my favorite.

P.S. WAHOO!!!! :)

Cheri, half tees are AWESOME!! My only thought is that sometimes I still like to tuck my bottom into my pants so when I bend over there is no "surprise scenery" But for pregnant women this is a God send!! I am totally going to try it out... even with the possible scenery... I have dresses that could use some! Thanks!!

Congrats! That is a pretty cool milestone. I wish you had told the lady so she could have celebrated with you!

On the other hand, I love that store and I'd be kinda sad to leave their awesome clothes behind.
