    I'm scared of the shop of Top.

    I've never been in mango, zara, coast, whistles, hobbs...so many.

    Oh I've never been in there either! In fact, if it doesn't have a plus size range then I've never been in it. Even to buy a necklace or handbag - I worry they're thinking "that fatty will never fit in anything in here".

    I felt the same about Next, as I haven't been able to fit in any of their stuff for years but now - size 16 - yippeee. I think I am too old for Top Shop and H&M but you never know!

    I always feel intimidated by Topshop and probably will even when I lose the weight but in all honesty, I much prefer the clothes in New Look and River Island x

    My OH and I have a joke about wet look leggings - I think he thinks I am serious but I know my limits. I might get some just to wind him up when I get to goal - his face would be a picture if I got those out of a shopping bag!

    Oh Guru, I have the same fear! And I bought a beautiful Karen Millen dress in a teeny size for when I get to target, but it was hideous. So I had to go in the shop to return it. It was so embarrassing but now that I think about it, nobody was staring and pointing at me like I thought they would ;)

    I love shopping in these places.. Now! But I don't think I will ever ever fit into h&m clothes, their sizes are ridiculous. Topshop is fab, as is French connection.

    I bought some 'hareem' pants in H&M, they were a size 10 and I am a 16 AND they fitted :eek: as my man said, they were mis-sized..... didn't stop me from making sure the label was sticking up when I wore them! :D

    H&M are often american sized, which can be misleading - at a size 20 I bought two jackets in there which were labelled a 16...which of course is an american 16, uk 20.

    This is why I loved shopping in New York when I was a UK 16...buying size 12, fabulous.

    Having said that H&M have a very cavalier attitude to sizing, sometimes its miles out in the other direction (eg buy a ten, fits a 16...)

    Tbh I don't really care about the shop girls or their snotty attitudes, I'm only in there for a little while then I go away again and if they criticise me behind my back, well I don't know about it nor care!

    Being able to go into any shop and buy anything you like let me tell is the most amazing feeling, there is a massive down side to this - The bank balance be careful lol x x

    Congratulations Ria on your weight loss :)
    I'm a pear shape and the 'hareem' pants really suited me, they are only £10 and are soooo comfortable and feel like tracksuit bottoms, go for it - promise you won't be disappointed. x
