As I’ve said many times, I’m always on the lookout for places that carry clothing, hip clothing, stylish clothing, in fashion clothing, to those of us who are extra curvy, those of us who are ‘plus sized’ and wish to still look good in what we wear.
Torrid is one of those places who care what we look like. They offer the cutest cutting-edge apparel and accessories for women who are sizes 12-26. I’ve been to the Torrid store in our local mall maybe once, for reasons that I don’t typically visit the mall often, and the last time I was in the store I didn’t find anything I liked, however since then Torrid has grown (yes it’s been that long since I’ve been to the mall) and their clothing has evolved, I just love browsing their online store, which carries so many things that are more my style than some other ‘plus sized’ stores I’ve found, my only dilemma is that I’ve always been afraid to order clothes online, what if they don’t fit? I’d rather try them on.
I was fortunate enough to have Torrid send me some items from their clothing line, and I can say. Their clothing is true to size. I let them know my current size and the clothes all fit great! From my dress (which my husband loves on me, pictured left), to my tops (one pictured right), to the bathing suit, everything is stylish, a great fit and comfortable. I also love that Torrid carries name brand clothing like Baby Phat, Apple Bottom, Dereon and more. These items I can rarely find in other stores, but on Torrid online, I can order them up and they’re on their way. If something doesn’t fit me right, I can just bring it back to the store, easy!
Torrid.com is a very user friendly website, which allows you to browse their collection however way you find easiest. Every item has a clear picture that shows you what their items look like, on a real and actual plus sized girl, no skinny models showing of clothing that you would wear. Torrid makes sure that their clothing is represented by those who would actually wear it.
They have a varied assortment of merchandise not only including apparel but also accessories, jewelry, lingerie, shoes and they also carry a new bridal line. Torrid also always has some great sales and clearance items to be found as well. All of their items are centered around various lifestyles of young women today, they strive to carry 50% of private label and 50% of well known fashion brands like I mentioned above.
Torrid has their website www.torrid.com where you can order online in the comfort and privacy of your home, but they also have over 100+ stores nationwide, check out their store locater to find a store near you.

1. So, we finally have a Democratic candidate in the U.S.: Barack Obama. What do you think of that? Do you think he can win against John McCain? Why/why not?
Meh, I’m ok with it, as long as it’s not another Bush running I’m happy. I’m not a fan of Barack Obama, I really think IMO that Hilary Clinton would have been a better candidate for the presidency, but I can’t vote anyways, so it doesn’t really matter. I have a sick feeling in my stomach when I think of Obama as president, I have from the beginning, there’s just something about him that doesn’t sit right with me. Can he win over McCain? I don’t know, its too early to say if he can or not, I guess we’ll see as time goes on.
2. What is your position on illegal drugs?
I feel that if someone wants to do them, let them. I feel that if a soft drug like marijuana is going to be illegal then so should tobacco which has more harmful effects on someone. Otherwise something like marijuana should be legalized just as tobacco is. I’m not a drug advocate, I don’t think they should be done at all, but if someone wants to ruin their lives by doing Coke, go ahead and let them kill themselves.
3. What do you think of the health care system in the country in which you reside?
DISGUSTING!!! Coming from Canada where I had great free health care, could go do the doctor whenever I needed, didn’t have to worry about how much surgery would cost or anything, the health care system in this country (the US) is DISGUSTING! One of the major reasons we are contemplating moving back to Canada is because of the health care system. Right now, I don’t even have health insurance because we simply cannot afford for the entire family to be on it, even when its offered through my husbands employer, and we make too much for me to qualify for assistance.
