Why are there so many cute styles, YET!!!!

Recommended Posts

KymmieL

Why when you go shopping for cloths there  are so many cute styles. yet nothing in your size. I was at Wally world earlier. I saw some cute styles yet none in my size.  I did however pick up some sleep shorts in raspberry to go with the top I already have. Also picked up a much needed pair of jeans.

 

I don't know who is the corporate idiot who buys swim wear for wallys but the styles and color are just plain hideous, IMHO. I wouldn't be caught wearing any of it even if I was CIS woman.

It seems that these stores are leading you on what styles of cloths to buy. Not only Wallys but others as well.

 

Sorry for the rant, now off my soap box.

My two favorite stores with stuff that fits me  (>18) are Dress Barn and Lane Bryant with Torrid being OK for some things.  I have a two piece bathing suit via Lane Bryant's Cacique lingerie line that fits and actually looks good on me.  Hint though, the top piece is below-tummy length, I am not going to poison the view by wearing one that has bare skin showing in that area.   Target has some stuff in bigger sizes, but it is online order stuff to be picked up in the store.

 

I have been shopping at all of those stores even before I went full time,, and they are Trans friendly in most places.

My mom has the same problem. (She's plus sized). JCPenny, Kohls and Belk are her favorite places for clothes. For swimwear, sometimes discount department stores (TjMaxx, Bells, Ross etc) have good stuff. Also, if you know your size, online shopping might be an option. (I don't know how trans friendly these places are, but I've never had any issues with my local stores).

 

To add to the rant: As someone who still wears a female bathing suit sometimes, what the hell happened to just a standard pull on and go one piece?!  No fancy bows, crissscrosses, tie in the back etc.

      The movement has informed some of my work as well. Welcome. TA

      I'd like that. And could use an adventure for a change.   Jackie, that's funny about the pants, since I tend to spend much of my studio time in a t-shirt and panties.   TA

      It's a thought. But I'd really have to relocate to Maine. Although the West coast is also appealing. I spent 3 years in San Francisco. TA

      I am going to drop some hints to make sure he isn't playing with my heart. I might ask him this week or next week to have sushi like he wanted. (And it's cheap >:D)    Also I will keep you all posted!
    • ToniTone
      It seems pretty clear he likes you. And you like him. I agree with A Dillon, y'all should just try going out! Just a casual coffee or lunch. Take it slow, you know?   Anyway, this is too cute! Please keep us posted 💕   ~Toni
    • BEAN_CHILD
      wow thank you guys so much!
    • ToniTone
      Oooooo both y'alls poems are deep and brooding, and they have a nice flow. I love it!

      Since here soon he is going to be moving near me, we plan on hanging at the park, he made me shake on it, how cute
    • Aidan5
      oH I forgot to mention!!!   On the bus ride we pass by a mall and he saw a Trappers, (A sushi place) and he asked me if I wanted to go there with him,  "That will be our first date."    ANd earlier he was saying "Haha when you joke around flirting because you are afraid of being rejected"
    • A. Dillon
      Listen: this is not hints, this is essentially asking you out. You should say something!! He is scheduling a kiss with you, kind of very much implying that you will be dating. Cuddling, hand holding, this all sounds like you're already dating! I think that maybe you should suggest going somewhere with him, like a date of sorts. That way you can get to know each other in a more open environment, and will really have a chance to talk about life and stuff. If your parents would let you, being able to just go to lunch with him alone or something like that would be great.

      Yea,i kind of like the movement,just the idea of having magic just casually appear as part of reality kind of fits my life as i am also schizoaffective,so its like a theme for me,plus whenever i think of the idea in film i think of my neighbor totoro which i also love, i dont know thats just how i understand it anyway from what little i know, so thanks tammy!

      I love the "spiders all the way down" comment, that's hilarious. My family will pretty much literally give you the shirts off their backs if they approve of your lifestyle, they can be truly selfless and genuinely nice people. But I guarantee they will ostracize me when the truth comes out.   As far as hair goes, as long as I was forcing myself to live as a dude, it wasn't on the top of the list of my struggles, and I lost it by age 22, so it's been this way more than half my life. I suppose in some ways it was one of the biggest things that kept me in denial about my true self. But now that I actually want hair for the first time in more than 20 years, I intend to look into hair transplantation options. I'm probably a fringe candidate (pun intended) but if there's any hope, I aim to give it a shot!
