Hey clothing designers! Hello?

Why is it, if it’s large enough to fit a fat chick comfortably, it’s ugly?  I say this as a fat chick myself.  Clothing for the “plus size woman” is almost always hideous.

Don’t believe me?  Go to any department store.  Find that border where plus size fashions border the “regular” women’s section.  On one side, you’ll find reasonably attractive clothing in a variety of colors.  On the other, you’ll find circus tents in the worst color schemes. Garish!  Tacky!  It’s as if to say, “if we cover you in these ugly colors, people won’t realize you’re fat.”

Why can’t clothing makers just take the same patterns and fabric they use for smaller women, and use more of it, to make the same damn thing, only larger?

    I could not agree more, I ware a size 22, It is very hard to find anything that really catches my eye.
    I see shoe makes have finally started to make women’s shoe size 12 and 13 so at least that is starting to make things easier with respect to shoes. again however there is not a wide varity of styles.

    As I look around on the street and malls I see more women of the 14 to 24 siazes than I see of the 2 to 8 sizes. But when you go into the stores they have floors of smaller size womens’ clothing with every imginable color and style. While the womens plus size clothing is religated to a small space on one of the floors, and as you say, not much in the way of color or design choices.

    I think it’s about time that all larger women make their buying power felt, just maybe that will get the attention of the designers and manufacturers of Plus size women’s garments.

    Regards to all,

    What a concept, but what will that do to the diet industry?
