She really is a pear shape isn’t she. All the candids from the visit to Portugal really show how good she is at angles.
What's wrong with being pear shaped?
literally nothing. and with her chest there’s no way she’s a pear.

i know this is trash a guru but it feels like people are complaining just to complain lately, there’s hardly any criticisms or complaints with actual substance

I mean I def agree with you on the pear comment, but the complaints and criticisms of tala's customer service are truly justified (speaking as someone who has ordered from tala and dealt with customer service). It's disappointing as a paying customer to see an instagram-perfect business trip displayed as "fun in the sun" when I wish they could work on true customer service and fix communications issues. Companies should not use insta stories as the only method of communicating with customers and it's embarrassing that emails look like spam and are sent repeatedly with wrong information and misspellings.

I honestly expected a lot more out of Grace, I used to really like her work ethic and content. But all of these tala posts feel like a slap in the face.
i completely agree about the complaints and criticisms about tala, it’s a massive shit show and there’s no doubt about it. and her reactions to people’s complaints about tala are shocking. there are also other things that others have brought up that i agree with too, it’s just that there’s a lot of other complaints about trivial things that don’t matter and just sound petty

seeing her latest ig post, i cant help but think shes trying to get tala to be the next gymshark/ missguided/plt kinda brand. basic white socks with tala all over it, fitness wear with tala on the arm. it definitely feels like she wants to make a brand that will take the world by storm which is difficult when its literally merch and the only people who will cop it are fans, people who dont follow grace wont be shook with the unoriginal designs and decide they need tala, they would much rather buy a similarly overpriced piece of clothing from gymshark (literally the only thing people at my gym wear)
plus id rather order from gymshark since i ordered in the summer sale where its obviously super busy, got my items within 3 days and i can actually return something that doesn't fit me easily.
tala is not even half the size of gymshark and they fucked their entire launch up, AND you can't return anything???
tbf, it seems like a lot of people got screwed over by the gymshark sale - lots of random refunds, people who haven't heard or received anything, etc. probably not as large a percent as tala, but still.
oh shit really? i hadnt heard anything, that is really bad for a company their size. guess i got lucky then!
nah i would never buy gymshark im alright with my nike trackies, but like didnt ben lispet or whatever his name start gymshark from scratch and now-although not the best gymwear brand out there, gymshark is doing pretty good so i can see her wanting to make tala the nest gymshark and clothes that everyone at the gym will be wearing - but judging by how she dealt with the launch, lack of good customer service and poor manufacturing of products (people saying theres has already ripped) i dont think it will do incredibly well just year for a while anyway

Not sure if it’s been mentioned but they’re refunding the 31st items. I’ve just received an email about it saying it’s because there was a ‘stock issue’. Really wanted to give the business the benefit of the doubt and ordered leggings as I support the whole mantra but this is ridiculous haha. They included a discount but it’s only valid for 30 days ? With how fast things go out of stock I’m not sure I’d be able to use it

Something about her swanning about showing all the Portuguese workers quietly making her garments is really off-putting to me. Screaming privilege. Did she get their permission to film them?

Re: The new items from TALA. I am so baffled as to how girls on Twitter are desperate for plain white socks with a meaningless, made up word on them. “I need these socks now” “when are they releasing?”

Plain white socks?! Socks?!

Her team have such boring faces and personalities. Their all the same.

I would be soooooo pissed if I was someone who ho had ordered something and been waiting ages for it with no response or it was bad quality, while her and her team are not responding and swanning around Portugal.
Also felt so sorry for those women making the clothes, they didn’t look happy at all, and they will definitely be underpaid despite what grace says. Why else would she go to w foreign county to get her stuff made??? How are her minions so thick and sticking up for her!

wow she recorded the factory? there’s definitely something off putting about that, the only time i would understand that is when stacey dooley does a documentary or something but nah this aint it, never seen such a massive airhead with double standards. i really wonder what the work conditions are like?

What's so bad about recording factory footage? Don't see how it's much different to showing workers in the warehouse. And them not looking happy, should they be sitting there like a grinagog? That's Emily's role actually.

IMO, sure film the set-up of the factory itself, the materials/machines/whatever, but filming the workers just doing their jobs feels wrong. Idk, its kinda like if you work a minimum wage fast food job, and a corporate big-shot paid 6-figures ++ comes in, chills and laughs with their corporate crew, and then films you while you're busting your ass. Just seems kinda exploitative.

Also for example CG will film his workers in his warehouse, but that's way different to me since he actually knows then and chills with them and they all heavily advertise their involvement with Alphalete on SM.

I also wonder if she got the right permission to do so. In the UK you have to sign a declaration saying you are okay being filmed/photo taken. I would guess the laws would be similar in Portugal and I can see Grace not bothering to do so.

Ben Francis has filmed his warehouse workers quite a few times, he doesn't chill with them and they aren't even in the same town as him.

Would you really need a waiver for 5 seconds of footage where you are barely recognised? Surely simple oral permission would do.

Unless it’s in public, then technically footage doesn’t belong to you unless all participants filmed have signed a declaration of consent. So if they really wanted to they could sue if they haven't got their permission to be filmed. Which might sound silly over a 5 second clip, but some people can’t and don’t want any photos or footage of them anywhere cause it could possible put them in danger of some way or another. This is a common thing at schools, a lot of parents let the school know that they don’t want their child to be filmed, due to loads of different reasons. One could be maybe their parents are separated and one of their parents could be a threat to them, therefore any images that could show up anywhere could give away where they could find them. Usually in this case with events at schools announcements are made prior saying if “any film and photography is taken it is for private use (ie not to be shared on social media).

Nothing wrong with being pear shaped. The point is, she became Instagram famous for her physique which she no longer has and therefore people are disappointed that she is no longer that body they are striving to achieve: I can see why people are commenting.


Also, from what I can see out the windows in the house tour, it looks like south west, maybe Fulham or Chiswick????? I’ve lived in London forever and that’s my
Opinion. Also, if it is those places, I imagine the house is over a million. Got some family friends in Putney which is further out and their house, similar size, costed 2.8mill

I think I made the comment about her being more pear shaped because while she’s put on weight since this time last year, it’s all in her hips and thighs. There’s nothing wrong with that at all, but it really highlights how good she is at posing and making it seem like she built her booty with her bands rather than it being her actual body shape.

Yes it is definitely Putney/Richmond way. I remember AGES ago she showed the road it was on and I recognised it (I live in Fulham) and I'm pretty sure she also mentioned it was south of the river!

I find that highly unlikely.

Would she have been able to make sure the name of the area can't appear in the comments? I.e. any comment mentioning 'peckham' doesn't get shown? If that was her area it wouldn't have been shown or would have been deleted by someone imo.

When people post really private things on the Facebook page (screenshots, details of their relationships etc) aren't they worried that someone they know will see it?
