After seeing my friend Margot Meanie rocking lots of cute clothes from Forever 21, I decided that I had to find a way to be able to get my hands on some of the Forever 21 plus size range. I ordered via the US website and had it shipped via YouShop, which is a freight forwarder that ships packages to New Zealand; but it turns out that Forever 21 also has a Hong Kong based site that does ship globally. You might think this was a rookie move, and I admit that it kind of was, but it did give me a chance to figure out which one was cheaper when it comes to shipping, so it’s still kind of a win.
Because a lot of the pieces I picked out were on sale, they’re no longer available – sorry! It should give you a pretty good idea how different shaped things at Forever 21 fit on my body though. Everything I picked out was a size 3X, which is roughly a 24 in NZ sizing.
While the bodycon dress and the leggings didn’t fit me, I found this a really good gauge in terms of sizing. Especially because the swing dress was a really comfortable fit! I won’t be buying pants from Forever 21 anytime soon, but it’s good to know that if there are things I like that have a looser fit around the hips, they might work for me.
Have you shopped with Forever 21 before?
Let me know which of the pieces I picked is your favourite.
