  • I feel you!!! Ever since i had my son (3yrs) I cant find anything!!!!! Not even the expensive stuff works for me. It seems like the clothes that is made after you have a baby is not as cute. :(

  • Grrr...yes! The other day I went shopping for a plain black t-shirt, I brought two to the dressing room with me, tried on the first one.. a $9 t-shirt..and it was fine, but made me look mishapen or something and the material was heavy and sort of course to the touch...the other, a $40 t-shirt by James Perse, which was marked down from $80, looked FABULOUS, and the material was softer, nicer...grrrr!#% Of course I had to have THAT one...

  • In my experience, clothing seems to be one of those categories where the expression "you get what you pay for" fits.

  • Yep. All the time. Altough I recently moved and am pretty close to a goodwill and a salvation army and have had really good luck finding things that fit me there. :)

  • Even expensive stuff doesn't fit me right, but that's not the clothing's fault, it's mine. I had my last baby 40 years ago, and that's plenty of time to lose the pregnancy wt, lol.

  • I hate the sizing thing. They should be universal.
