Forever 21 goes plus size!

Yes, you heard me. Forever 21 is launching a plus size line called Faith 21 which will be sold in a few shops in May and online. Can I say how much I LOVE the fact that they will be selling plus in their stores rather than creating a separate plus size store. Although it'd be nice if they just expanded the range of sizes of what they currently have rather than create a whole new line.

There is also another article on plus size fashion (or rather the lack of it) as part of the whole series and it is one of the best articles I've read on plus size fashion in a long time http://www.latimes.com/features/lifestyle/la-ig-size1-2009mar01,0,2345629.story.

for those of you that dont think a 2x will fit, you might be surprised. if if, at a size 20, can fit a lot of their size "large" things, i imagine someone at a size 24 or 26 could fit some of their stretchier size 2x things.

I agree. They have some crazy stretchy stuff in there sometimes :)

I started shopping there recently because of you - at a size 22ish.

Seriously, I'm thrilled. Like mad.

Really?? I adore their clothes and I wear an 18/20. Right now, I only shop there for accessories. I just don't have the cajones to shop the clothing racks with all those skinny minis around.

Maybe if I go super early in the morning when they open...

ita... i can be a 22 sometimes on top, and almost all of my weekend clothes are f21 tops!!

Yep, some of us will just have to try stuff on and be aware that some things will work, and some just will not. I'm a 24 bottom/18-22 top and can sometimes find XLs at Gap/Old Navy, I pretty much try everything on now just to be sure. (The nearest F21 is 2 hours away from me however, and I'm willing to bet they won't carry plus!)

Yep I was just about to say this. I have so many size L's from there and I'm also a 20.
