For Grown-Ass Ladies

The (un)acceptable bigotry of fashion

    Size 14 used to be impossible to fine, so I’m glad that places are including it. I remember needing size 14 pants – 12 was too tight, 16 was too loose. “Regular” stores (Target, Kohl’s, etc) stopped their sizes at 12. The (far too few)plus size stores started at 16. One of the workers in a plus size store even told me, “It’s weird because ‘regular’ sizes stop at 12, and ‘plus ‘sizes start at 16. 14 is like a no-man’s-land.”

    Excellent example of why all brands should offer universal sizing. We shouldn’t have to go to size-segregated stores to begin with, the 14s among us falling through the cracks of a broken fashion industry. Thank you for sharing your experience.
