H&M FINALLY SHOWS SOME STYLISH RESPECT TO THE CURVY GIRL (UPDATED)*

OK, I know you've probably already read about H&M's new plus size collection that's going to go  up to US size 24. When H&M first came to the states, their plus size line was nothing less than, how can I put it? A hot mess! The shapes were unflattering and the styles were a snooze with bland over sized t-shirts. However the smaller plus size girls, were able to get away with H&M's more stylish pieces in sizes 12-16. No matter how much I despised the plus size section in H&M I have to admit that I was a bit perturbed when they took it away for good.

Now H&M has decided to make a comeback with their plus sizes and it is definitely a crowd pleaser. The new plus size collection is vibrant with color, intriguing with dainty details, and shapes that are sure to make a plus size girl be proud of her curves. My only disappointment is that the clothes will not be available in store. They will only be available on line. I mean come on people, I want to try clothes on just like everyone else without having to pay the over priced shipping fee. I'm quite sure H&M can clear out some space in a few of their already over stuffed retail stores to make way for the curvy girls. Forever21 did it so can they.

 Nevertheless, I am quite ecstatic for the plus size community to have another stylish and trendy place to shop and kudos to H&M for using actual plus size models and finally designing clothes that embraces curves rather than hide them.


*The collection will be available online in March only in the UK (That Sucks!).

Checkout a few pics from H&M's plus size line and tell SC what you think.

Can you even order from H&M from the US?

I must have the pink skirt and the one shouldered, Can this be ordered off of line or do I go to the store????

Ashley said...

I'm impressed!!! But, alas, there's no H&M in Memphis. And like another commenter said, can you even order online in the US?

Alissa said...

Hey guys,from what I understand. H&M is supposed to be launching their very own website in March. I believe the plus size clothes will only be in the UK stores but you can order on the website when it launches. I will make sure, I keep you posted, because I can't wait.

Pulls out debit card...I am officially ready to shop!

Tina said...

H&M doesn't deliver to the US, so no online ordering for us. Unless you have some friends in Europe who will ship it to you after getting it delivered to their house. Boo!!!

I had no idea. Thanks for the heads up! I'll have to let my hourglassy.com readers know.

Savonne said...

So after doing a little more digging, H&M will not be doing a US e-commerce site. The plus line will only be available in the UK. My deepest apologies for the confusion.

Argh. I just wish the skirts/dresses were a bit longer! Boo! I can still get away with H&Ms clothing for the top half of my body, but the bottom half screams for a bigger size. Here's hoping to plus sizes in-store!

That one shoulder dress is amazing! Maybe it'll pop up on eBay... or maybe I'll win a free trip to London, lol!

Anusha said...

Aaaaaaaarrrrrrggggghhhh!!! Why can't they bring these styles to the U.S.?!!! I'd buy almost everything. :(

Its What I Do said...

Alas...more heartache for the thick & sexy trying to be diva with modest budgets.

This new line looks great! Color, great prints...just b/c your plus sized doesn't mean you want to dress boring. I am glad they go the memo!
