I haven't seen this article posted here, so I thought I'd share: Torrid Has Rebranded to Be Just Another Plus Size Store That Sucks
. I don't have any stores near me, so I can't say I've noticed any difference, but I was curious for y'all's input!
I did shop with Torrid for the first time on Black Friday with their 40% off sale. I got this dress
, this top
, and this top
I seriously LOVE all three. I am a big fan of peplum, since it helps balance out my boobs, so perfect! The dress I picked for NYE, and is VERY boob-y, so pretty much perfect?? I love the first top just as much as I expected, and since the peplum doesn't go all the way around, it helps elongate/smooth my torso while balancing my hips. The third I love as well, as it gives kind of a retro vibe (seriously, look at the back!) but I'm going to have to exchange it since there's cosmetic damage--some of the polka dots right front and center and stained? or made wrong, not sure which. I wore the dress to my college graduation last night:( Dress pics under the cut!Collapse )
Anyway, that brings me to my question about Torrid sizing--the dress was out of stock in a 16, which is what I typically wear, so I decided to try for a 14 and watch my drinking the next few weeks...but when it came in on Friday, I had to try it on, and it fit like a dream! Does Torrid typically size up, or did this just have a lot of stretch to it? Thanks for any help that might make my mail ordering easier :)
