What Is Torrid?
Torrid is a popular fashion brand, catering to those wearing sizes 10-30. This brand makes timeless but trendy dresses, jeans, bras, shoes, accessories, and so much more.
Torrid has a mission of inclusiveness, revolutionizing the fashion world by changing clothes to fit beautiful, curvy bodies. Because of that, they have created their own rules when it comes to sizing.
Torrid sizing information is important for customers in order to find what will fit them best, especially when shopping online. Plus, if you are reselling your Torrid items, it is important to mark the sizing correctly to get the right eyes on your item.
As a quick rule of thumb, Torrid numerical sizes 1-6 correlate with traditional sizes 1X-6X. However, we will get into more specifics for different clothing items next.
How To Measure Your Torrid Size
Before jumping into a Torrid size chart, it is important to first know your own personal measurements. In order to do this, find a long, flexible measuring tape. Also, have a piece of paper and pen handy to write down your measurements (in inches).
You may even want to recruit a friend for help in order to get the most accurate sizing. If you are comfortable, try to wear little to no clothing in order to get the closest measurement possible.
Torrid Measurement Chart
To measure your bust, place the tape measure underneath your arms. Wrap it around the fullest area of your bust.
Make sure it stays flat on your back and in a straight line. You don't want to add any extra inches by doing this!
For your waist measurement, find your natural waist. This is located across your belly button. Wrap the measuring tape around and jot down the measurement.
This is also the area that naturally creases when you side bend.
Measuring your hips is similar to measuring your bust. Take your measuring tape and wrap it around the fullest part of your hips. Where you’re measuring may seem low, but it is important to capture the widest part in order to ensure an accurate fit.
Torrid Comparision Chart
Torrid Tops, Dresses, and Other Apparel Size Guide
Torrid apparel items (besides pants/jeans) range from size 00-6. These sizes match up to sizes 10-30, respectively. Use the provided comparison size chart above in order to find the perfect fit for your next Torrid top, dress, jacket, or coat.
Torrid Pants, Jeans Sizing Guide
When it comes to Torrid jeans, pants, slacks, and other bottoms, sizes range from 10-30. This correlates with specific waist and hip measurements. Refer to the measurement chart to see which Torrid size will fit you best.
Torrid Hosiery Sizing
If you are wanting to purchase Torrid hosiery, use a combination of both the measurement chart and comparison chart provided. Torrid size 00/0 hosiery correlates with the equivalent size of 10-12, with a waist measurement of 32-36”, and a low hip measurement of 42-46”.
Therefore, you can use this exact sequence for your specific size as the trend continues.
Costume sizing at Torrid aligns with the comparison size chart from earlier. Torrid sizes 1 and 2 correlate with US sizes 14-18, and Torrid sizes 3 and 4 correlate with US sizes 20-24.
When it’s time to shop swim for summer, look no further than Torrid. In order to find your Torrid swimsuit size for a wireless top, use the Torrid size equivalent chart, plus the measurement chart for bust circumference.
Finding the perfect swim bottom size is as easy as looking at our comparison chart, using your waist and hip measurements, and correlating them to the correct Torrid size.
If you are more of a one-piece girly, and like a wireless top, use the measurement chart for bust circumference, waist, and hip measurements.
Size Guide Troubleshooting And Bonus Tips
Although having your measurements can seem to be a sure way to ensure fit, there are still other factors to consider. First, check the fabric content of the item.
This will tell you if there will be a lot of stretch, or if there is not much wiggle room. Also, look at the model on the website to try and gauge if the fit is more relaxed and flowy, or tight.
Additionally, the most valuable indicator many times is by looking at reviews. On Torrid’s website, there are typically many reviews for their popular items.
Within the review section, buyers are able to indicate a star rating, upload a photo, provide a description, and rate the fit.
Specifically, the buyer can use a meter to indicate overall fit from ”Runs small” to “Runs big”, or somewhere in between. Plus, the buyer can input what size they purchased along with what size they typically wear.
Therefore, it is wise to use your own measurements, Torrid size charts, and real user experience in order to determine if the garment will be the right fit for you.
Buying And Reselling Torrid Secondhand
Here at The Resale Doctor, we love to promote secondhand shopping and selling. If you're already a thrift shopper, you may identify with this.
Have you ever been at a thrift store or buy-sell-trade store (like Plato’s Closet) and see a Torrid clothing item in the wrong place?
For example, I have seen a Torrid size 1 dress mixed in with the extra small section at the Goodwill. This is likely because the retail workers are not familiar with Torrid’s unique sizing.
Therefore, if you have time, it may be worth it to skim through the entire section if you are wanting to find a Torrid piece specifically. It is typically a very common brand at secondhand stores.
And once you’re done wearing your Torrid clothing items or shoes, did you know that you can quickly and easily resell them online? There are many individuals across the country looking for specific Torrid pieces that they love.
That way, instead of donating your items to a Goodwill, consider listing them on a secondhand eCommerce platform. Some of the most popular include Poshmark, Mercari, eBay, and Depop. If you need help with this process, start with our guides on Poshmark for beginners and how to sell used clothing on eBay.
Due to Torrid having a different size method, I recommend using the equivalent size within your listing in order for the right buyer to find your item.
Hopefully you are now more familiar with Torrid sizing, and feel confident about finding your next beloved item. The perfect piece for lounging, swimming, or a night out on the town is out there waiting for you!
Torrid size 2 correlates with size 18-20, or 2x.
