On February 5th – just in time for my Paris trip – Loft launched their plus size line in sizes ranging from 16-26. I HAD to pick up a few colorful statement pieces for my trip and I was so excited to see a graphic sweater that totally screamed Valentine’s Day in Paris.
I loved this graphic sweater – c’mon it says “L’amour”! I sized down to an 18 (I usually wear a size 20 dress and have been wearing it in tops a little bit – I really wanted a more snug fit ) and loved it. On their website, Loft styles this sweater with an adorable red skirt and I knew I had to have that too. I got the red skirt in a size 20 – I’m a 22 on bottom right now but it looked like a stretch material that would hug my curves. When I received the item I realized it had a silk lining that definitely made it a tighter fit. I snipped the lining with scissors and the skirt work but I would recommend either sizing up or if you’re between sizes (like I sometimes am) go for the bigger fit.
I paid for express shipping and it arrived in enough time to snugly fit in my suit case.
BONUS – I compression packed both of these items and didn’t need to iron either one.
I loved this look and it totally worked for my trip. I honestly can’t wait to try more from this line. I know many other brands are expanding to include expanded sizes (Madewell going up to a size 20? Gotta try my luck ) and I’m anxious to try them all!
