Online shopping can be pretty intimidating.
Just ask Rachael — she says if she's trying on swimsuits, she needs a bottle of wine! 😂
That said, online shopping is getting easier and easier, thanks to an influx of online stylists and fashion subscription services.
But do they really get you the styles you're looking for?
That's what we wanted to find out!
And why we tapped a style professional — plus-size fashion influencer Kellie Brown of AndIGetDressed.com, who boasts a cool 60,000 on Instagram (@itsmekellieb) — to give Dia & Co, which caters to the plus-sized customer, a go.
After filling out a questionnaire on the site, Kellie was sent five pieces to try on — a denim jacket, a green top with crisscross detailing at the neck, a plaid button-up, a leopard dress and a pair of black distressed skinny jeans.
And in the end? She felt three out of the five options.
While the denim jacket was a bit too snug for her taste, everything else fit well. And perhaps even more importantly, she found the majority very cute — especially the leopard dress!
(See what it looks like in the video above.)
"I'm a fan!" she gushes. "It's very, very comfortable. It's cute. It's easy to wear. I can see wearing it a ton of different ways. I'm very happy about this dress."
She called the plaid shirt "a pleasant surprise" and loved that the skinny jeans "suck you in a little." (A feature we all love, no?)
The final verdict?
"I think if you are afraid — especially for the plus-sized box — you don't know all the brands or you feel, 'There's nothing for me,' it might help you discover some brands and some things that you don't know," Kellie says.
And knowledge is power, is it not?
