Overall, HT is a really nice store. their products are high quality and decently priced, and they're always having sales. my only suggestion would be to maybe extend the women's styles into plus sizes? I love some of their designs but they tend to run a little small, so I'd need a size bigger than what they offer in stores. their men's shirts are true to size, however.

I preferred this store when it catered to the goth/metal/rock scene. I went there to get awesome band merch and black everything when I was a teen but when they started selling Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, and Disney I quickly lost interest in this store. I'm glad they have recently gotten back closer to the way they used to be, but they'll never be the same.

Still one of my favorite stores after 10 years..I always buy a lot and I mean a lot of my band shirts as well as body jewerly from there...I just feel so at home being in there..and I love the hot cash for future visits at the store..sometimes I wish they would carry more sizes in some of the clothing for ua ladies..but I guess thats what their sister store torrid is for

Hot Topic always lures me in. I'm pretty sure I love everything that they sell. I do remember one time they sold a VERY pornographic film to my brother (he was about sixteen at the time) and my dad was really appalled by that. Other than that, I love how they vary in everything that they sell. If I could pick a shop to be buried at, it would be Hot Topic.

Best store in the world. Unfortunately they only have a couple in my state. If you need it. They have it. Hair dye, band shirts, body jewelry, costumes, EVERYTHING. It's the main store I go to in order to buy my stuff and I would have love to work there.

One of my biggest reasons why I love hot topic is because they are most likely to sell tees or small things of the trending fandoms such as sailor moon, doctor who, attack on titan, etc. I currently have half of their attack on titan tee collections haha. Though, there are other nice items around the store. Some items are decently priced and some over priced.

I LOVE looking in there, keyword looking. Everything is extremely pricey. You can easily find similar items that they sale on Amazon, Ebay, etc. They have great variety and, sometimes, they have good clearance sales. Being plus-size, they rarely have anything in store that could fit bigger people. While they may have good variety sometimes they don't.

This is definitely an interesting place to go. They have t-shirts featuring famous movies, bands and TV shows. They also have glow-in-the-dark nail polish which I'm absolutely in love with. It's not a store with bright colors though. It's very dark but I did buy these cute Harry potter pajama pants for my bf from there. They also sell stuff from Frozen there

My all time favorite store! You get rare clothing here you don't find anywhere else that suits your fandom. Really cute clothes here! I don't like the gothic clothes, but the cute ones match me best! I just wish it wasn't so expensive, but I guess being in a mall makes things more expensive. I love it when it has sales though so I can get good deals.

This has been my favorite place to buy clothes since I was 11. And o find even though I'm almost 30 the clothes never go put of style! My only wish is they had more available on bigger sizes! But I'd definitely recommend to all my friends and family!

Has anyone else noticed the differences in the sizing? I usually wear a large in dresses, and an Xtra large in women's shirts and small in men's shirts. I just bought a medium size long sleeve shirt that fits perfectly.
