Being a “plus size” is exhausting and frustrating when it comes to time to shop. I’m genuinely flabbergasted by an industry that repeatedly tells women bigger than a size 4, “We’re not interested in you” even as these women are pleading with the industry to take their money.
In a powerful piece for USA Today, Tim Gunn wrote about the issues he had with the industry.
“Despite the huge financial potential of this market, many designers don’t want to address it,” he writes. “I profoundly believe that women of every size can look good. But they must be given choices.”
Well to all you invisible women who have the nerve to be a size 14 or higher (which is the overwhelming majority of women!) you know have a great opportunity to get some great fashion choices delivered right to your door!
