As a full figured girl, I used to think that being fashionable was never for me. Throw on a fresh pair of jeans, a clean shirt with sneakers and I was good to leave the house.
It wasn’t until I started college that I realized that even though I am a plus size girl, I could also look cute with my curves.
For a long time it was hard to find clothes that looked good on me. A lot of things just never fit right. Either I was swimming in material or I was showing more than I was comfortable with.
This was an ongoing cycle until I found Torrid, a store catering exclusively to full figured women. It surely and quickly became one of my go-to stores. Here are my 3 favorite places to shop for cute looks:
This is the first store I had ever shopped at that made stylish clothing for girls like me; a store that catered soley to the fashionable plus sized girl. Trendy, girly, casual or even edgy, Torrid caters to all types of girl and the accessories are cute too.
2. Forever 21+
I have always browsed their website thinking, “if only I were thin enough to fit into these clothes.” Recently, I found out that they now make plus sized clothes that are just as stylish and cute as those for the thinner girls. The selection is still not too large and you can’t find plus sizes in all Forever 21 stores, but the clothes are worth perusing the website for.
This store can only be found in the Boerum Hill neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York. The reason I enjoy this store so much is because it’s a consigment shop specifically catering towards the full figure fashionista. The real beauty of this shop is all of the vintage pieces. Shopping here is like going on an adventure to find the pieces that were sold by their previous owners that are just waiting for you to find them and incorporate them into your look. There is a bit of everything here that any full figured girl would love to have, shoes, clothes and accessories. A girl can’t go wrong with Re/Dress.
These are my favorites, which stores are your favorites to find stylish pieces?
