Torrid Spring Haul and Shopping Tips


Torrid has become somewhat of an addiction over the last eleven years. I remember my first Torrid visit like it was yesterday…I was on vacation in Cleveland (because Cleveland rocks, which is why I am now living close to the CLE now). I walked in and found my home! It was a trendy plus size gal’s dream come true! Granted, I went back to my home near Philly and lamented for several years that the closest one to me there was two hours away, until we finally got one at King of Prussia Mall. Now I am lucky to have two Torrids within 15 minutes of driving distance! It’s a dream come true!
However, I know a lot of my friends get sticker shock when they see some of the pretty dresses and outfits there, so I am going to give you some of my best tips for getting what you want without breaking the bank!

Check their Clearance

One of the things I like about Torrid is their consistent fit. I have a generally good idea what size I will be in their clothes, which means that I can shop online and generally not have to return things. I check their sales a lot, both online and in-store. Sometimes the individual stores themselves have different sales than what is online. This holds true especially for their buy one get two free clearance. Seriously, that is one of their best deals, and I get so many great pieces that way!

Become an Insider

If you want to stay in the know, make sure that you are on their email list and an Insider. Insiders earn points that turn into rewards bucks for your purchases. Their rewards are the only thing that really stack too with Haute Cash and coupons. I pay attention to my emails for when they have flash sales. Their flash sales are the bomb! I usually have a running wishlist of things I want, and then I use these as opportunities to get what I want and also build Haute Cash. Haute Cash can be redeemed a few times a year. You earn $25 for every $50 spent. Then during redemption, you use them on your purchase. The only drawback is that you cannot use Haute Cash on clearance! However, you can score some amazing deals on regular priced merchandise, which is how I got this outfit!

The Outfit

This time around for Torrid Haute Cash, I did not have a lot built up. However, I had a small wish list anyways, so I was not too terribly disappointed. I used the Haute Cash that I had and got this entire outfit! I wanted something that has a bit of the retro feel that I love to wear but was also comfortable for the beginning of summer. I got this cute polka dot challis cami because I love the flowy babydoll look and the retro feel of the polka dots. Then I paired it with their cropped leggings in red. To accessorize, I topped it off with the fisherman’s hat. Then I added their black and white striped Mary Janes to finish the look. Each piece goes together for the whole look, but I can also pair them with other things in my closet for fun as well!

So what do you think? Is it cute, or would you have paired it differently? I hope you found this helpful for the next time you shop at Torrid, and if it was, make sure to share!

    Very cute outfit, and I love Torrid, but yes, their prices can be high. I got a really cute Winnie the Pooh dress on clearance from their website though and I love it! It’s so comfy for the summer. 🙂

      Yeah…it is a little daunting on the checkbook at first look, but I really make the coupons and deals work for me 🙂

    Fabulous fashion tips! I’ve been wanting to try Torrid and especially like the swim wear options. Any advice for on line purchases? Thanks so much for this post! Your style is awesome!

      Thank you. Online, check the size chart and know your measurements. I also read reviews. I tend to read all of them and take what the consensus says. As for swimwear, usually size up once. If you are busty like me, consider the two piece options. I have been wearing the highwaisted two piece options for about 3 years now. It is nice because I always have a perfect fit because I wear my normal size in the bottoms and a size up in the tops!
