Welcome to Canada, Torrid!

For all you plus size fashionistas out there I have exciting news to share with you (if you don’t already know). “Torrid” has arrived in Canada, and has opened its first store in Toronto’s Eatons’ Center!

Me, about to enter shopping heaven!

Me, about to enter shopping heaven!

I was up at the crack of dawn (which for me is somewhat of a miracle, I am not a morning person) to make the crazy commute into the big city to witness this momentous occasion.

Some of you may be asking yourselves “Torrid?” Let me answer that question with these words: “Plus size shopaholics dream come true!” because if you like trendy fashion styles and the latest designs Torrid is the retailer for you.

I was in shopping heaven! The store opened with all the fanfare of a red carpet movie premiere. I was surrounded by Torrid’s top models Geo and Phil (so nice!), lots of bloggers (Karyn from Killer Kurves being one of them), and lots of beautiful ladies enjoying the shopping heaven just like me.

This is one fashion retailer that is taking the plus size world by storm! Torrid tells us curvy gals that we can wear skinny jeans, cropped tops, stripes, patterns, bold colors and statement jewellery just like everyone else, and they are right! We can, and SHOULD!

Most of the prices were comparable to other Canadian plus size retailers. Of the few items that are a bit more expensive, the array of different choices makes the slight additional cost worth bearing. There was also a great sale section for the ladies on a budget.

If this doesn’t sound like your thing maybe its time to step out of your comfort zone. Be bold, be beautiful; Be Pretty, Plus and Proud!

What do you think of Torrid? Did you know they were coming to Canada? Were you at the opening? Share your thoughts!

Happy shopping ladies and Torrid, Welcome to Canada!

It was so beautiful! The kind of place you want to say "Just give me one of everything!"
