Torrid adds plus-size maternity line
Plus-size moms to be should happy with this news: national retailer Torrid now sells maternity clothes.
If you’re larger, shopping for maternity items can be hard; it seems like many stores only offer items in “standard” sizes. And often, what is available, can be very expensive.
I like Torrid’s line, though the items are a little tamer than the typical trendy, somewhat sexy clothes the store sells. Torrid’s maternity options also aren’t too expensive — definitely a plus when you’re buying clothes that won’t be a permanent part of your wardrobe.
The majority of the items Torrid is offering are tops, with a few cardigans and dresses thrown in. There are only a handful of pants; two skinny jeans (one with a belly band, the other without) and a pair of leggings. But again, when you’re looking for maternity, a focus on basics is a good idea.
One of my favorite items is this pretty red dress with crocheted shoulders and back. It also comes in black, and the crochet detail adds some visual interest to an otherwise simple look. The dress is $54.
Another favorite of mine is a rather sporty-looking faux wrap top that’s available in plum and black. It’s got a nice peplum bottom that cinches below the belly, and a pretty rosette detail on the back. It costs $38.
Torrid’s maternity items are available in sizes 0 (12) to 4 (26/28). Many items are online-only, but you can call Torrid to find out what store near you has maternity items. Their customer service number is 866-867-7431.
