She admitted she was skeptical, having always felt excluded by Topshop when she was younger and they didn’t carry her size.
She said: “I am a bit conflicted about trying this on because on the one hand, Topshop made me feel like s*** about myself when I was a kid.
“I wasn’t included, I felt excluded when my friends would shop there.”
She added: “But at the same time, brands don’t always get it right and I’m going to give them the benefit of the doubt.”

She started by trying on a pair of size 28 jeans.
She said: “they do fit quite nicely and I like the look of them.

“They come up really nice and high waisted.”
But Jess also pointed out that they were very long as she was a 5ft 5 and they dragged on the floor.

She then tried on a mesh dress with a flattering ruching around the waist and see-through mesh sleeves.
She said: “It feels lovely on the skin.
“I like this off shoulder and one strap situation.”
Next up she tried on a stunning floor-length shirt dress which tied in at the waist.
She explained that she bought the dress in a size 26 and it came up true to size.
She said: “The fit on this is really good.”
And added: “When I looked at the prints when I put my order in, I was like: ‘Ah, none of these are very exciting.’
“But in person, they are much nicer and quite cool and edgy.”
Finally Jess showed a sheer-sleeve maxi that nips in at the waist.
The eye-catching dress came in an ombre yellow colour that she described as “fire”.
But the influencer decided she didn’t like the cut outs on the side so would send the frock back.
Fellow TikTokers were quick to share their comments.
One person said: “I feel exactly the same about Topshop as a teen going in there was actual hell so now I feel like why should I give them my money!”
Another said: “I’m mad that I love everything from this haul because Topshop did me dirty as a teen too

A third said: “Same. I hated going there. Haaaated it.
“I am happy they’re doing it but feels disingenuous. For plus size dollars and not inclusion. Just my opinion.”
