postheadericon H&M+ Review


So I finally made it to my nearest H&M (2 hours away) that carried the plus size line by H&M. At first glance I was like "This is it?!?" but then I said "Well at least it's bigger than the maternity section." Eventually I do hope that the plus line gets its own full blown department.

Ok so on to the review....

I tried on a few things and came to the conclusion that the sizing is cut small. For me at least. I have large upper arms and found that I had to go up a size in order to not have that "tight in the arms" look in the shirts. I also found out that I cannot wear the colored skinny jeans....more on that in a few....

Here is what I did purchase:


I purchased the dress in my "normal" size of a 2X. For reference I am a 2 in Torrid and a 18/20 in Lane Bryant. The dress is stretchy so I wont have any upper arm problems. I plan to purchase some tights/leggings to wear with the dress until the weather warms here. The dress was $17.95 and according to the website comes in beige and black. I only saw black at my store.



I purchased the top for $24.95. It also came in a pink plaid combo that I almost purchased. With the top I tried on a 2X and discovered my upper arms needed more room. It did fit ever where else though. I plan on wearing belt to take up some room but honestly there is not much difference between a 2X and 3X to worry about that.

I tried on these pants. At my local store they had the beige and a mint green color. I could not fit my big but in the size 24 pants. They were just too snug. I got them all the way up but buttoning them was out of the question. My best friend purchased the mint green color in a size 18 which is what she normally wears. We are shaped differently. I have hips and a butt but she has some hips and a flat butt (if you are reading this....sorry hun!)





I could have gotten this in a 2X but this was the last one left and it is a 3X. It is not outrageously big but I think it will fit better when I put a button up or something of the like under it. I tried it on over a cami for reference. It was fantastic in the arms but a little loose in the waist. The cardigan was the most expensive piece at $29.95.

According the the size chart I should be able to wear a 2X in everything but unfortunately life just doesn't work that way. At least I have a better understanding of what size I should start at the next time I go shopping.

Please keep in mind that I didn't try on any jeans or leggings. My store did have them but I didn't want to pay $49.95 for a pair of jeans. I already have black leggings so I did not purchase them. They also had dress pants and blazers. I did not try them on but I should have. The blazers were priced at $49.95.  There were also basic shirts and tanks as well as sweaters. I plan on going back in about 2-3 weeks for the spring items.

postheadericon Did You Hear About HM+?


HM+ Lauch in US
Sizes 14-24 now available in select stores

To see some great pieces that might be available click HERE.

I'm especially loving these:




The best part is.....The prices are in line with the straight sizes! Both the dress and pants are $24.95. Great prices! I'm excited. The only down side is that it is currently only available in select stores which means no where near me. The USA online shopping is suppose to come this fall which isn't quick enough for me. Hopefully my local store gets the line! If anyone has the line near them please let me know!!!




According to the size chart I should be an 18 but I think H&M is cut small so I would like I would probable be a 2XL in most things and a 3XL in some.

postheadericon F21+ Purchase

A post has been loooong overdue. I work so much that as a result my blog has taken a back seat. Sorry!! But now that I have your attention.....


As some readers may know F21 (forever 21) is one of my fave stores for trendy, affordable fashion. I didn't go overboard but I did pick up a few items.

Teal
White
Purple
$22.80
Forever 21+ - A pair of stretch denim capris in fun colors and a skinny fit. Zip fly, button waist. Five pocket construction. Antique finish hardware. Lightweight.

DETAILS:
- 32.5" approx inseam, 37" waist, 12" leg opening, 10" rise, 12" thigh girth
- Measured from Size 14
- 97% cotton, 3% spandex
- Machine wash cold, tumble dry low
- Imported
I am excited about getting the skinny jeans. I think the colors are excellent for the spring. These jeans also come in black but I passed on them. If I like these enough I just might go back for them. I'm also hesitant on how well the white pair are constructed. I really hope that they are not see through!


Cream/Pink
$11.80

Forever 21+ - A striped top featuring 3/4 raglan sleeves. Round neck. Banded trimmings. Knit. Lightweight.

The top also comes in Cream/Taupe and Cream/Peach. Since my fave color is pink....yep! I want to get the fit right before I decide to order any more colors.

Ok so as you know I try to order anything without some sort of discount. If you use code: F21PLUS10, you will get 10% off of you $50+ order. So with that said each pair of pants was $20.52 and the top was $10.62. My subtotal was then $72.18. With free shipping on $50+ order, and tax of $4.89, my total spent was $77.07. =]
