Fashion Seems to End at Size 12

26 Aug

When I’m working in the real world with real women and we’re shopping, we find that fashion seems to end when you get any larger than a size 12,” Gunn told The Huffington Post. “How ridiculous is that?

Yes, how ridiculous is THAT? I don’t get it – the population of North America is largely above size 12 and screams that we need more easily available, more attractive, more figure flattering clothing but no one seems to get it.

It’s hard to believe that we are still mostly regulated to shopping online when it’s so much better to be able to try things on and leave knowing that what you have purchased fit the way you want it to or at least you know up front what adjustments you need to make.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy that we have the opportunity to shop online but it would be great to be able to walk into a store, see what you want and purchase it too.

Many designers are ignoring the population above size 12 when it seems to me there is nothing to lose and everything to gain?
