Topshop Sells Plus Sizes!Posted: May 7, 2009
Made you look.
No, your dreams haven’t come true. Topshop does not sell size 26 clothes but this is me and my size 26 body trying on clothes in Toppers and get this- they’re too big.
I love it when trends work in my favour. The luxury sportswear look has spawned a newer relaxed loose fit to clothing to the point where I can go into Toppers and try something on. Who’d have thunk it?
Despite not being able to fit anything apart from the accessories I regularly go into Topshop and other straight size stores to see whats available and keep up with the latest looks. The luxe sport trend has seen a flood of jersey clothing hitting the rails and the cut for this particular trend has been very generous- harem pants, jumpsuits etc. Garments have become bigger but this is the first I’ve seen something cut so big that I can actually get into it. It’s a size M/L and makes me wonder what it would look like on someone who was a size 12-14 who it was created for. Would I wear it? NOPE! Its as unflattering as I expected it to be. I only tried it on for the hell of it.
There was also this cardi-
Which is also a size M/L and very loose. Again, I only tried it on for the hell of it but it fits a bit better and I like the feel of it. Its lightweight, 100% viscose with short sleeves that are meant to be ruched up. I thought the sleeves would be too tight because of course its made for someone much smaller, but they were fine. Would I buy it? No, although it looks a helluva lot better than the floral top, I prefer my cardies a bit less balloon shaped even if they are loose. Still, trying them on amused me and the looks I got from the skinny girls as I walked into the fitting room were priceless. 🙂
