The Faith 21 Review That Isn’tPosted: May 3, 2009
I know you must all have heard and seen the new Faith 21 range but I just have to comment. What do you all think of it? Of course, being in England I haven’t had a chance to browse around the store so I can only comment on whats available online and from what I can see, its OK. Just OKAY though. At a push.
Theres nothing there to make me swoon or even look twice, in fact, I think its pretty run of the mill. At the very least there is consistency between the main F21 line and Faith 21 (unlike the BiB range for H&M which is NOTHING like the main line), but they don’t seem to have chosen the best items from the main line to develop. Prices are good so I can’t say anything against those but what is up with the size chart?
When I first heard that F21 where launching a plus range I was excited about it but I remember saying something like, “I hope they don’t just do the range in sizes 16-20.” Well, that was somewhat optimistic of me because after viewing their size chart it appears that the Faith 21 line doesn’t even go up to a US 18 yet alone a size 20. It’s available in US size 11/12, 13/14, 15/16 which in UK sizes means that the range is available roughly in sizes 14, 16, 18. HUH?????? UK 14 and 16 are standard sizes to the majority of retailers so I can’t help but wonder why Forever 21 weren’t doing these sizes before. Their clothes must be extra teeny tiny.
Anyhow. My review isn’t really a review at all as I’ve not seen and touched the clothing for myself. If you want to read a real review visit The Musings of a Fatshionista blog.
