|I found an article about plussize fashion that I really want to share. The link is at the bottom.|
The article is mostly positive, with only a few question marks. But its such a relief from most media stories. No "epidemics", prejudice, or fear mongering, thank god.
Its about how curvy fashion is cooler now than it used to be. There are some great lines from a plussize store manager -
"The clothes that fly off the racks are the ones that make women feel proud, strong, sexy and alive."
"A stroll through almost any clothing store will bear this out. If a style has caught fire with the mainstream buying public, you can expect to see it sizzle on a size 20 as well as a size 2."
"We have girls come in with their skinny friends all the time," said Lane Bryant Assistant Store Manager Kelly Martino. "And the skinny ones are always saying 'Oh, I wish I could fit into that.'"
The article also has a little story about a girl who tried on something sexy for the first time, and loved the reaction she got -
"Borgatti still has the yellow shirt. She's also got some bell-bottoms, some cleavage-baring jerseys, and even a miniskirt"
