Im sorry to hear that August Max Woman is gone, even though I never shopped there. But I agree that what they tried is an example of what NOT to do. You could really use this case as a sales pitch for plussize models, and warn a company "Look what happens when you dont represent your customers".

The AMW site is still up for now. What a difference between that, and something like Torrid. I know theyre after different markets, but still.

Compare this image of a really pretty model at Torrid with what August Max tried to do. I dont know this models name, but shes been on the Torrid before (except they finally gave her a good hairstyle this time). Its like looking at the past, then looking at the future.

Bottom line - curves are beautiful, and any company that believes it will never lose.
