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.

Re: This is kind of long, so grab a pillow.

Well done.

Misses sizes are essentially designed to fit adult women with various frame sizes but not a lot of fat whereas plus/women's sizes are shaped to allow for fat. Venus Williams is a good example of the idea of larger frame size--she's not fat at all, but she's a lot larger, measurement-wise, than, say, Jada Pinkett Smith.
