What is it like using a Macy's personal shopper? Is that my best option?

I'm a short lady with fat thighs and a big ass, and it is very hard to find clothes I like. My style, such as it is, is androgynous-to-butch. I realize that perhaps dresses or skirts would flatter my body more, but they're not me. I find shopping for clothes horribly stressful. It is common for me to spend hours and find nothing that fits. Consequently, I have very few clothes that I love. Could a personal shopper help me improve my wardrobe, and would it be worth consulting the shoppers at Macy's? I'm thinking Macy's because they have personal shoppers that will work with you for free. I am scared that the shopper will be appalled by my non-fashionable body and my rejection of skirts and dresses. Or would they be willing to work with me to find things I like? If not Macy's, then where? If not a personal shopper, then what?
