Do they bring extra sizes; where is the store; When do you open; How are their prices All the doubts they have about this new option for girls curvy, answered
As I had told them in the previous post, things are happening great for Happy Curves . One of them came last week when I received an email with an invitation to attend the Forever 21 pre-opening party in its new store in the Historic Center of Mexico City , on the corner of Madero and Ghent.
When I announced that I would go to the store , several of you asked me questions through Facebook (Happy Curves ) and Twitter ( @curvasfelices ). So what I did was gather the questions to answer them all:
WHERE IS THE STORE?
It is located in the Historic Center of Mexico City . On the corner of Madero and Ghent.
WHEN DO YOU OPEN?
The store opened yesterday, August 2 , however I read in various media that it was crazy and there were about three thousand people formed! I recommend that, if you do not want to queue, wait a while to go and as you read this entry to find out how the thing is.
IS THE ONLY FOREVER21 STORE IN MEXICO?
No. In Mexico City there is another in Interlomas that opened since last year; Then there is this one and on August 16th they will open the branch of Perisur , so the stores are distributed so you can go to some, no matter where in the city you live.
DO YOU BRING YOUR EXTRA SIZE COLLECTION?
There are six floors of clothing and accessories for men and women. Now, for those who were asking me:YES THERE IS AN EXTRA SIZE SECTION! This plus size section is on the 4th floor and although it is not very large, what they have is AWFUL.
THE EXTRA SIZES, WHAT IS SO EXTRA?
The truth is that plus size girls are a little bit ciscadas with that of extra sizes because many times we find that some stores put as plus size to a size that in fact it is not. Like Violeta, the new XL brand of Mango , which considers extra size to something that in Mexico is medium! If you want to know more about this brand, read: Mango bets on girls with curves. But hey, this is not the case, the sizes arrive from 16 to 24.
WHAT ARE THE PRICES?
The prices of most things are affordable, but there is everything. For example, I’ll focus on the Plus Size section . I bought a medium-sleeved rocker blouse and it cost me $ 250; A broken and washed caprijeans that cost me $ 400 (when in other stores, jeans in extra size have cost me $ 500 to $ 700); A $ 500 shawl-type sweater. Obviously there are cheaper and more expensive things.
IF I’M NOT FROM THE DF?
One of the most recurring complaints I read was that there were only stores in DF , which made it impossible for them to buy curvy girls from other parts of the Mexican Republic . But no. As I said some paragraphs before, it is not the only store in Mexico, but in any case YES CAN BE PURCHASED ON LINE .
Forever21.com is the site of the store and there you can see and choose what they like and ask to be taken home. Obviously this has an extra cost , but either way is an option for those who are fans of the store.
Well, I think in general those were your top doubts, but if you have more, you can tell me here, in the comments of this post, or in:

I put a few photos of what I found in the store:
