The Lowdown:Being that it’s 2010 and all, we’re still constantly surprised (and dismayed) by the limited budget options for plus size women. Torrid.com, however, has become a constant for the young and hip fuller-figured girls among us, though we’d still argue the quality isn’t always what it should be for the price.
Still, trendy and wearable plus size dresses are one of the toughest items to come by (as opposed to the poorly designed and matronly, which still seem to be everywhere). We wouldn’t wear any of these to, say, a wedding or anything, but for a casual office, clubs or even Homecoming — and with an extra 10 percent off coupon — we find these Torrid dresses fit the bill. And remember, always keep your eye out for additional discounts, like free shipping or online coupons at sites like RetailMeNot.com, to get the best deal possible.
