If this were to happen, it would be such an extraordinary development as to revolutionize fashion completely. I want to believe that they mean it, but at the moment, it's still just words. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

If sizes do finally go up among straight-size retailers, the other great development that might ensue is that when certain Italian plus-size fashion retailers stage their own runway shows, they might start using true plus-size models, rather than the faux-plus 10s and 12s to which they've limited themselves, up to now.

Basically, when the world sees Barbara Brickner, Charlotte Coyle, etc. on the runway, then we'll know that a change for the better has truly occurred.
