The history of Torrid
Torrid was opened in 2001 in Brea, southern California. The store is a sister brand to Hot Topic and specializes in plus size clothing for teens and young women. The idea came about because Hot Topic customers started asking for the store's signature styles, but in larger sizes.
The stores changed a little bit over the years. When they first started out, they were very alternative, but over the years they've expanded their offerings and now have a wider range of of options.
A few things you might not have known about Torrid & Hot Topic
Torrid and Hot Topic are both well known as great places to shop for people who love a rocker chic take on current trends, but there are a lot of things that you may not have known about these stores.
For instance, did you know that they came about because people started noticing gaps in the market? Hot Topic was created to sell punk style clothing to people who loved the Southern California punk rock music scene, and Torrid was created once people started asking for Hot Topic clothes in bigger sizes.
Hot Topic was the first place that sold body jewelry! They were also one of the few places that sold band t-shirts outside of a concert.
There's a third member of the brand as well - Blackheart Lingerie, which incorporates a similar sense of style into intimate apparel.
