Fashion Flash Sale Sites: Fab or Faux

Posted on August 14 2014

More and more of the fashion flash sale sites are taking on the plus size market. Gilt, Rue la la, Ideel (they dropped the last “i” recently after being bought by Groupon), Myhabit, Zulilly. There really are many to choose from, but we find that the deals on these sites are less and less compelling. We saw a Tahari shift dress on Ideel, but found it on for cheaper. We also saw Mlle Gabrielle (which is not a brand we are too familiar with) dresses for the same price on Sears’ website. Overall, we’ve lost interest in these sites since they’ve lost value and the items aren’t too unique. What do you think? Do you really like any of the flash sale sites?

Here’s a great article that summarizes each site including whether they offer plus sizes and if they are a deal or not:
