alight.com Review (Giveaway Closed)

Recently I had a chance to review a top from alight.com plus size clothing. I also browsed their website to see the wide selection of clothing they offer.

The clothing covers the range from casual to formal and conservative to trendy. At first I was overwhelmed by the sheer number of choices. It helps that, once you're on a page with 15 thumbnail product images, the single large image changes to whichever your cursor points to. This makes it easier to browse the selection without clicking back and forth repeatedly.

I like the options to shop by category, by boutique, by brand, and by size. I also like that there always seem to be a lot of items on sale!

I described my style as very conservative, and this is the top that the team at alight.com plus size clothing chose for me:

Here are a few details and observations:
  • Easy care (machine wash cold, line dry)
  • 100% acrylic
  • Sleeves have long ribbed cuffs, to wear long or fold back
  • Fairly lightweight (I would layer this over another top, so lightweight is a plus)
  • Size seems to run small (next time I would order one size larger than usual)

alight.com would like to offer a top to one Frugal Creativity reader! Winner will receive a top selected by the team at alight.com.

This giveaway is closed. The winner will be announced after verification.

Here's how to enter: Visit the alight.com plus size clothing website and sign up for the email list (it's at the top of the page). Come back and leave me a comment with the email address you used to sign up. This is required for entry and will be verified. Limit 1 entry by this method.
