The average American woman is a size 14, so it makes sense that a lot of clothing manufacturers and fashion companies are finally recognizing this and providing the necessary products to meet these needs. Two decades ago, it might have been practically impossible to go into the mall and find cute, trendy clothing for larger sizes that didn’t cost a fortune. Nowadays, you can go into virtually any store, both online and off, and find an array of gorgeous clothes that range in size from XXS to 5X. Having the same styles as thinner women helps curvier girls feel better about themselves, giving them a chance to be just as fashion forward as the models you see on the runway.
In fact, there has been a recent resurgence in fashion bloggers who are plus sized. Women like Darlene Lebron Lopez, Kate London James and Sawsan are all popular fashion bloggers who have thousands of followers staying updated on all the latest looks and trends. You don’t have to be a size zero to look good, and the fashion industry is realizing this and making it possible for larger women to find clothing they actually want to wear.
Despite jeans and blouses being made in larger sizes, you can now find knee-high boots made with a wider calf to support plus sized gals. Plus size clothing stores like Torrid and Dia are bringing gorgeous fabrics in lingerie to keep you feeling sexy. Let’s face it, many of us can diet until the cows come home and still be in a larger size, so it’s nice to know that we can still look just as good now than we did when we were smaller. There is no size limit in the world of fashion, opening the doors to a plethora of styles for women wanting to look their best.
