Weekend Wish List: Torrid

Torrid has just opened in our local shopping mall and I am so excited! While we do have some pretty decent places to find on-trend fashions in plus sizes, there was still definitely a need for more in our area. I have read plenty of bloggers raving about Torrid and I have checked what they offer online, but I had never actually shopped a Torrid. Until last week. I went into Torrid in the Salmon Run Mall just to check it out. And what I left with is one of the best shopping experiences ever!

As I strolled into the store, I was greeted by the friendliest and most bubbly personalities I have encountered in a mall retail store. Manager Dawn was nothing short of absolutely fabulous. And sales associate Danielle was equally amazing. They first asked if I had ever shopped in Torrid and when I explained that I had only ever browsed online, they immediately explained the sizing, the sales, and the rewards program to me. Then they whisked through the store showing me fashions that were directly in line with my own style…and they were spot on. And all of this from just observing what I was already wearing and chatting with me for a few minutes. Not only did I leave the store with a few new stunning pieces, I left with a few new Facebook friends and blog followers! If you are local to Watertown, New York, and are looking for gorgeous plus size clothing, you need to stop and visit the gorgeous gals at Torrid in the Salmon Run Mall. They will totally meet all of your styling needs.  And please tell them Shelbee sent you!

If you are not familiar with Torrid, they specialize in fashions for women who are sizes 10-30. They stay completely on-trend offering gorgeous pieces from dresses to intimates to swim wear. They have a variety of shoes and other accessories not to mention some of the most amazing, best fitting jeans I have ever put on my body. They also offer a Torrid Insider program which is a loyalty program that offers exclusive access to new collections as well as other special benefits. And right now, they are having a BOGO 50% OFF pretty much everything in the store and online.

Here are some of my favorite pieces. I have chosen these pieces from the website, so I cannot guarantee that they are available in the store.

  1. Torrid have some pretty trendy clothing. I shopped with them many years ago in my local mall and the ladies there was very courteous and helpful. They helped me picked out my first outfit which was a beautiful blouse and pants. I also bought online from them years ago. I love that they have many options for us plus size girls. I love all your picks and thanks for sharing. Can’t wait to see what you bought hon 🙂
