So I'm in desperate need of a very pretty comfy robe top. I went [one store] today in bp. She didn't have what I needed but found something else for weekday. Wonderful. Great. Next I went to [another store]. They usually have a wonderful extremely helpful woman there. She goes out of her way to make a customer happy. Today I went in the afternoon. They had this [description removed] lady who's attitude smells till my house. She was busy on her phone the entire time. Barely just barely acknowledged I'm there. She's not even a plus size woman and clearly doesn't understand the struggle. I left nearly in tears.
I searched online. Didn't find a thing. Just because I'm a size 22 I'm can't look good on yt and shabbos? I worked so hard to loose weight. I did a few pounds. I lost the motivation. I'm depressed. I don't want a t shirt. I want a pretty yomtovdig comfy top. Or 2 piece top even if it's comfortable enough.
Thank you for letting me vent here.

I’m so sorry. That’s yucky.
If you’re near a Macy’s (especially the Manhattan branch) they have some decent dress options right now. Found some good things for my daughter yesterday.

So sorry.
If you have the energy to go out again you can try match a head. They have plus size tops. But I wasn’t there this year so I don’t know what they have this year.
Good luck!!

I was there 2 weeks ago. They didn't have much. I do have a gorgeous dress coat for neices/nephews weddings that I bought there this winter.

Not looking for a dress. I specifically need a pretty comfortable tip to serve as a robe top for shabbos and y"t

This is pretty. But it's not plus size.
I actually got an extremely comfortable everyday top there in a new jersey macys last week.

I’m so sorry for your experience. That sounds really painful!
Maybe you can remove the name of the store that had the unhelpful sales lady? You said they usually are very helpful so it would be a shame for them to lose business because of this post.

I hope you find a beautiful top!

Gotcha. I guess I’m of the mindset with my daughter that whenever she finds something that works, I tell her to grab it even if she doesn’t need it right now. I hope you find exactly what you’re looking for and have a pleasant experience.

I have this top in the blue green. I bought it from Walmart but it looks like the same top. I love it! It's completely tznius without any additional layers, it's very comfortable, and it looks great on me. Plus it washes well. I should really get another one in a different color.

Go to tj max or Marshall’s. I’m a small there and xl in Jewish. You will probably fit into a xl.They have lightweight loose overtops with short sleeves you need a shell but you will look dressed and stylish.

Did you try Sorority in Lakewood or Fame on Central? I hope you find something beautiful.
I think the description of the salesperson in the OP may have too many identifying details. Perhaps you would edit those out
