Torrid Clothing Haul

New Zealand plus size fashion blogger Meagan Kerr wears V Neck Tee and Leopard Print Challis Jogger Pants from Torrid

It wouldn’t be Black Friday shopping without a little bit of bargain hunting at Torrid. It’s one of my favourite places to shop because there are so many options to choose from and they have a great size range – unfortunately the shipping is too expensive for me to shop there on a regular basis, so I tend to wait for times like this, when I scored a sweet 50% off international shipping. You better believe I took advantage of the sales at Torrid as well – they had 40% off regular price and an extra 50% off clearance, and I went HAM while still trying to stay within my customs limit.

New Zealand plus size fashion blogger Meagan Kerr wears V Neck Tee and Leopard Print Challis Jogger Pants from Torrid

I love everything I purchased, but my dilemma now is that these leopard print pants really aren’t practical as they are. If I wear them as full length trousers (which you can see at the top of this post), the waistband is really big on me, even with a tee tucked in. If I wear them as cropped trousers, which is what they’re meant to be and I think they look super cute, the legs fall down because my calves are too small to hold them up (literally the only time in my life I’ve had that problem) and the waist is still big. I could alter the waist and possibly the bottoms, but I don’t have the skill for that and I’m not sure if that would work well with the style of the pants. If we had a Torrid store here or shipping was more affordable then I’d probably just buy the next size down, but I’m hesitant to do that as I’m not sure that the size 4 would fit my thighs (making that an expensive risk). Oh the dilemma! If anyone has any ideas to help me make these work please let me know!

How do you feel about bralettes?
Love ’em, never tried them, or find they just don’t work for you?

      A question about the bralettes. Are they similar to the style/fit of the Ahhh bra!!! I have tried them and my C cup boobs just swim around and they don’t hold a shape for my boobs. I ended up sore from them being squished/flattened boobs instead of sitting nicely in a shaped cup.

        Hey Fiona, they have a whole bunch of styles – the one I got is a stretch lace but there are others with more of an ahhh bra fabric I think. I’m a JJ cup so I don’t think I can really comment on how this might fit for you sorry!

    I love the top and pants as on the first pic. Having as 3/4 pants are cute too

      I think I like them both ways so it’s hard to decide how I want to alter them!

        Finally got to see the video. The leopard print pants….I have 4 of that style and all of them I have had to down size because they are way to big. I buy mine from Kmart, yes like you, they end up at the ankle and I like wearing them like that.
        I love all the tops your brought, they are very nice and look comfy too.
        I have never brought a bralette.

    One of those sew places in the mall could sort something pretty fast for you maybe..? Take a little off the waistband seam and add some stronger caliber elastic on the bottom cuff? I’m always bummed when I buy something perfect and then the fit is bung 🙁

      This is what I get for sizing up, I’m so sure my regular size would have been fine dang it! I’m not willing to brave the mall this close to Christmas but hopefully I can find a local seamstress who can help
