Don’t get me wrong, I do love fishy queens but can we get some more variety up in here? Jeez.
^ Seriously. Not impressed so far. I need a weirdo like Sharon to root for.
New work by Mark Ryden at the Michael Kohn Gallery booth at Art Basel. See more highlights from the main fair on Hi-Fructose.
Here is why Torrid’s rebranding has put them on my shitlist.
This, right here, is the reason I’m looking for new employment. Because the things my store manager has told me are being backed up by corporate. Because I’ve been told shorts I was wearing to work shouldn’t be sold in all the sizes Torrid sells and I couldn’t wear them any more. Because I’ve been told that fat visibility is offensive to plus size women and gives them a bad name. Granted, these are things my store manager has told me, and they are her personal opinions. But I know she would be backed up by corporate if I said anything. I’m tired of being told what I should look like, especially by a company where I once felt comfortable being myself. As my other manager and I were saying yesterday, Torrid’s shrunk the size of the mannequins from a 16 to a 12. I have yet to meet a person from corporate who was actually plus size, and I think that’s the problem. I don’t feel like Torrid and I are on the same level anymore.
THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT RESPONSE MY ARTICLE HAS GOTTEN.
Would you mind if I posted this on other places? Inbox me!
This is really important.
I’m definitely going to go spend the $60 I was planning on dropping on the one dress I really liked on Torrid’s website somewhere else. Somewhere more friendly to actual fat people, with actual fat models and actual fat mannequins. Fuck their bullshit.
Welp, good thing I haven’t touched their shit in years.
Stuff I have said about torrid for years.
File under I am not surprised at all.
Also Torrid has never really been there for fat people. They just want to make you believe you are getting something special when in reality you’re paying boutique prices for walmart quality. But if you’re fat you take what you can get, in this case over priced shit blothing.
torrid is trying to be the fat zara but it will never happen.
imagine if food didn’t make you fat but crying did?
I’d still be fat lol
