My Review of the “Miss Tina” Collection at Wal-Mart

Today I made it my business to go to my closest Wal-Mart to view and try-on some pieces from the new clothing line from Beyonce’s mom, Tina Knowles. The line is called “Miss Tina”. I was surprised to see that there wasn’t a large sign or billboard to advertise the collection in the store. I literally had to go from rack to rack to locate the pieces because they weren’t even all placed together. This particular Wal-Mart didn’t have the complete collection but most of the 10-12 pieces they did have are nice looking. The animal print dress was my favorite. But as I got to trying the clothes on, they all aren’t made for a “real” plus-size woman over a size 18.

Let me explain. The line goes from a size Small up to a  2X but the corset blouse and skinny jeans run really small. I am a woman with full hips and thighs and the 2X leggings couldn’t even fit me comfortably and I can wear a 2X  in other designers. I do understand that various clothing lines fit everyone differently so I  just suggest trying everything on first.  Now the ruffled cardigans and faux leather jacket did fit me well and I would consider purchasing them in the future. For now, I’m just gonna wait and see if “Miss Tina” adds more sizing to her line but I do overall suggest her clothing. It is pretty good quality for the inexpensive price and if you’re under a size 18 you’re in for a treat!

(Oh btw, excuse the poor quality pictures, my digital camera is in the shop so these pics are all from my phone 😦 )

Jersey Shirt $15 and 2-in-1 Miniskirt Legging $15

The Ruffled Cardigan Sweater $18

This comes in fuschia, brown or black. I liked this also and it would look great with a wide belt!

Leopard Draped Dress $18

This was my absolute favorite piece. I would have bought this but this is a size 1X and I would have preferred it in a 2X.

Faux Leather Jacket  $30
