With the hot weather coming on I want to get something comfy to wear around the house, but still able to go outside/answer the door. So I was looking for a comy/casual dress.<br><br>
I would like something like this. But was hoping to find something less than $20. But that's like finding a needle in a haystack, I am sure.<br><br><a href="http://fashionbug.lanebryant.com/dresses/casual-dresses/knit-shift-dress/15150c5043p60775/index.pro" target="_blank">http://fashionbug.lanebryant.com/dre...0775/index.pro</a><br><br>
So fashion smart people I need your help. I am plus size still. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> But working on a smaller me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Try going to Woman Within online.<br><br>
I buy most of my clothes from there. They have a generous range of sizes. Their clothes hold up well. I am a teacher so I get paint on them, I roll down hills in them, etc. I am hard on my clothes and I am very satisfied with them. And they have dresses like that, I am sure <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Honestly my first reaction is that's a pretty good price. You could possibly find something a little cheaper at a big box store, but not much cheaper. I've gotten some nice comfy sun dresses and (gasp the horror) Wal-Mart for around $15, but in the grand style of WM they lasted only about 6 months before they had holes. Fashion Bug stuff IMO is higher quality than WM or Target, and worth the extra $10 you pay for it, especially if your looking for something to "live" in. OldNavy has some Plus Size dresses right now too, some for around $15. <a href="http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/category.do?cid=7322" target="_blank">http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/category.do?cid=7322</a><br><br>
HTH!

I looked at Wally World's site. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> I saw this one. But it's a little more fitted than what I was thinking. But I am keeping it in mind. I see it is available in the store near me.<br><br><a href="http://www.walmart.com/ip/Cap-Sleeve-V-neck-Printed-Dress/13263934" target="_blank">http://www.walmart.com/ip/Cap-Sleeve...Dress/13263934</a><br><br>
I didn't realize Old Navy had 3x and 4x sizes.

It's on sale for less than $20 right now.<br><br>
I've also seen dresses like that at Sears and also at Target.

I got the sale email this morning. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> It's 17.49. I'm going to see if my local store has it today.

One Stop Plus is good, if you have the patience to look through all of the stuff.<br><br>
They have some really cute clothes mixed in with some <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/moon.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="moon"> ugly stuff!<br><br><a href="http://www.onestopplus.com/" target="_blank">http://www.onestopplus.com/</a><br><br>
Don't order without a coupon! Usually they have an amazing coupon code (like $20 off!) that you just have to do a little search for.

The dress I linked in my first post came in yesterday. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"> I love it! I have a little bit of underarm bra showing but I am going to wash it and see if it shrinks a bit. If not I might take up the straps a bit.<br><br>
It's definately comfy and will be great this summer.<br><br>
I see it's no longer on sale. I was going to get another one. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
