Torrid: "When you're curvy, finding skinny jeans can seem like an impossible féte. No one knows comfortable denim like Torrid does! You won't leave without finding something that works for you. I also love their selection of modern tights and accessories, lingerie and trendy shoes in wider sizes. (And, they won't be immediately sold out of a size 10 pair.)" - Charli Penn, Relationships Editor
