[tps_footer]While the options are limited, there is a nice mix and start, as Plus Model Magazine shares:
- Dresses – 4 items
- Tops – 81 items
- Bottoms – 1 item
This is awesome for many reasons and with this introduction, I wonder how the other retailers will take note. With Lane Bryant offering select items in up to a 38/6X, Ashley Stewart offering up to a 5X, Eloquii doing more with their 26/28s, and eShakti catering up to a 36 with custom sizing as well!, and Sealed with A Kiss has up to a 5x! there is definitely room for other retailers and designers to cater to the oft ignored size 24+ and above a 3X crowd!

Do you carry petite or short lengths
I’m not the retailer, just a blogger sharing news!
Would make me happier if they started carrying these sizes in stores so I could go try them on! Costs me twice as much to try on clothes because I have to ship back what doesn’t fit.
I agree! In store options would be soooooo ideal!
I somehow missed this, but good for Torrid! More options are always a good thing but I do agree that for those who need extended sizing it is frustrating to have to do all of their shopping online. I like being able to go into a store and not only try things on for fit but be able to see the construction and fabric up close. It helps me avoid spending money on needless returns but it also helps the company because there are just as many times when something that is questionable or unimpressive online is much nicer in person so they get a sale they might not have gotten otherwise. That’s why Torrid, Lane Bryant and other stores that carry my size in a bricks-and-mortar affair will always be my choice over someone like Old Navy or Eddie Bauer that carry plus sizes but have nothing in their stores.
They used to at least carry a handful of styles in a dusty corner of every 3rd store but they can’t even bother with that anymore. It seems like the message they’re sending is “I want your money but I want to put minimal effort into serving you and want to keep you at arms length.” I’m kind of over taking on extra burdens to pay top dollar to these companies who are wishy-washy about how they serve their plus-size consumer. I do a lot of shopping online but it’s usually custom garments or a retailer that simply doesn’t have physical stores.
