Dresses For Christmas

I wanted to get myself a holiday dress last month for Christmas. I decided to go to Catherine's one  of my favorite plus size women's shops to see what they had.  I  looked around on the racks and on the clearance racks but thee were no dresses in the store.  At the counter I asked one of the sales associates why no dresses and she told me the store had not received any dresses.  I said it's the holiday season and what about office parties, holiday parties and New Year's Eve?  She went on to say yjat the store had not sold enough dresses and were not being shipped any from the warehouse.  I then asked what about the after holiday sales?he answered not likely we'll get any dresses.  She went on to say you can order a dress from the web site.

That was some news.  For years now I have shopped Catherine's for dresses and found several.

Well, I'll either have to shop at the web site or go to Woman Within to look for my dresses now.

I watch for dresses on sale all year long, so I always have plenty to pick from around the holidays. You all dont have to wait till the last min to shop for xmas

Were you able to find a dress when shopping? Several stores seem to have cut back on the dresses available

JC Penny's, Dillard and Bealls still have plenty of them to choose from. And you can try them on there too.

I look for plus sized dresses and my favorite store seems to have limited offerings.

Penny's and most all department store's has Plus sizes.
I wear mostly womens 18 and 1X in tops and I find them all in the stores. Email me at misscdlee at yahoo and we can share more.

Tops are easy to find in 2X and 3X. More and more department stores carry separates.
