A posh plus size designer store has opened in Düsseldorf, Germany, Curves und Co. This is the first of it's kind that I'm aware of, in our region. Real fashion, cut for real curves, sizes 40-56 (US 12-26).
The even have an online store, Curvesstyle, that ships to all EU countries. Most of us won't be able to afford even a hair clip of theirs, but I still love looking at it, it's some serious inspiration on how to interpret current fashion for a curvy shape.
And it gives me hope! Maybe this means some kind of change is underway! Maybe, one day, in... a hundred years, a continental European will just have to go around the corner and into a shop if she craves a paper-thin, sparkly Torrid top, instead of having to order one from overseas, with $25 added for shipping and $55 for taxes!
