If you know me, you know that I am a big fan of both Forever 21 and Target. I have had trouble fitting into some of Forever 21's tops and dresses because I am very heavy chested. Frankly, most of Forever 21's clothes (regardless of their actual size) are made for girls with small chests. So, I'd love to see more tops and dresses for women with ample busts. It's not so much the size of the clothing, but rather the cut. Are you listening Forever 21?
However, some critics worry if creating these lines will, in the long run, promote obesity. "When you look at the human cost, what we're doing is we're on the Titanic and rather than forcing our children into the lifeboat, we're telling them to join the band. Worrying about fashion rather than worrying about the food is a horrible message that we're sending these kids," Roth said in a CNN article.
The fact of the matter is that many clothing companies stop producing clothes after a size 10, although the average woman is a size 14.
So, what do we think? Do plus size lines like these help or hurt us?
