I Tried FashionNova Plus Size Clothing And What I Found Was Shocking

I finally did it. I tried Fashion Nova plus size clothing. For a few months, I was contemplating whether or not I should. Fashion Nova is one of those online brands that has taken over social media. In addition, the brand has just about every popular celebrity boasting about their styles and fit. Celebrities like Cardi B, Amber Rose, Nicki Minaj, and even mega star Beyoncé. The reason I was hesitant about trying Fashion Nova is because the clothes looked like they were cheap and sized too small.

How Does Fashion Nova Fit On A Real Plus Size Body

What made me want to try them was my curiosity and reviews from other plus size women. Let me just be transparent here and say that Fashion Nova reached out to me to try their pieces and I said yes. I figured how could I judge a brand without giving them a try. So, here we are. Well, here I am trying Fashion Nova plus size clothing.

People who haven’t tried it yet always ask, does Fashion Nova run small. Here’s the answer to that question. Yes! Fashion Nova clothing is sized for junior plus. They go up to a 3X but the 3X fits more like a 1X, unless it has a lot of stretch. I find the sizing is very hit or miss. You need to take your time searching the site and reading the description to find the best pieces for you. That’s exactly what I did before choosing anything on their website.

My Fashion Nova Curve Plus Size Review

Below are a few pieces I received and bought from the brand. After extensively searching the site, I found these plus size pieces. I bought this purple snap and go midi dress.

Here’s what it looks like on me. The dress has a lot of stretch in it which made it easier to fit into. I got a size 3X but it felt and fit more like a 2X. This Fashion Nova plus size dress is definitely for someone with no or very little tummy. If you have gut, you’re going to need some sort of shapewear.

I also got this bell sleeve sweater. 

The fit on this Fashion Nova plus size sweater was okay. I got it an 3X as well but could’ve used a bigger size. The problem for me with this sweater was it was a little tight on my arm and in the mid section. I made it work by wearing high waisted jeans. Nonetheless the ruffles on the sleeves were very cute. They also detracted from the arms being too tight.

The most important thing you should know about Fashion Nova clothes is that they are designed for a specific body type. Hourglass and pear shapes. If you’re not those shapes, then you will definitely need shapewear.

Fashion Nova Shipping & Return Policy

You should also know that they do not offer refunds. Only exchanges. You can return an item and they will send you a gift card via email to use on something else.

A lot of Fashion Nova’s clothing is club wear and casual wear. There are tons of sexy short and low cut tops and dresses. Also, there are loads of two piece crop sets. There’s also their denim. Everyone raves about their denim but for me, it was not so good (you’ll see in the video below). I found their jeans to be cheapy cheapy and offer an okay fit.

In the video below, you’ll see me try on a few pieces I bought and pieces that Fashion Nova sent to me. I want you guys to checkout the video and see my HONEST review on Fashion Nova plus sizes. I can tell you this. There were DEFINITELY some cute pieces that fit well and there were DEFINITELY some pieces that were like, girl no.

    I like Fashion Nova. I am big in the chest and smaller on the bottom, and some of their 3x’s fit me fine on the top, and some of them are tiny. Their jackets and shirts run small. Their 1x sweat pants are huge, I normally can wear an XL but size up because I know it’s junior and am afraid they might not fit.

    Their dresses and jumpsuits are mostly good quality. If you can’t wear junior plus then avoid the jackets, they run small. Their dresses are all stretchy so I don’t have a problem with them fitting my chest and hips. Their hoodie sweatshirts are very nice and well made. I had a few items that didn’t fit and I gave them to Goodwill, but 90 percent of the items I bought fit and are good quality. I was surprised at the quality for the price. I hate jeans and never buy them.

    I loved how you went threw them all but you forgot to say the sizes of all the pieces. And I feel that’s a big part of this sigment . But I loved how you showed pictures and stuff.
