Torrid & Marvel Team Up For A Killer +Size Collab

by Jodie Layne

Plus size geek girls, get your credit cards ready: Torrid has teamed up with Her Universe to offer three new Marvel Avengers dresses in plus sizes for a limited time. Her Universe, a clothing line for fangirls, teamed up with Torrid's parent company Hot Topic earlier this year to do a full line of glamour geek wear in celebration of the release of Age of Ultron. And now it looks like the brand has (finally) decided to share the love with plus size fans as well.

Megan Purdy at Women Write About Comics had bemoaned this lack of plus size options for geek girls, and affordable yet glamorous geek gear in general, when Hot Topic's collab launched earlier this year:

"I want this collection, this gorgeous, celebratory, pretty-as-heck collection, to be available to everyone who wants it. I want garments that speak of beauty, grace, and heroism to be available, by default, to plus size women who are bigger than my acceptably fat, 'normal' fat XL body — and at the same price point as sizes XS-XL. Let’s see this Stark Industries jacket in a 3X. That gorgeous Loki party dress in a 5X."

Well, her prayers have been answered and Torrid now carries four Marvel designs that go up to a size 5 (size 26/28) and three that go up to a size 6 (30/32). Plus size babes can cosplay everyday as Captain America, Black Widow, or Iron Man in a cute skater dress for under $50!

Needless to say, humans are a bit excited:

Can you blame them?
