I was sitting here thinking about how was the “plus size” classification derived. When we see a SiZE 6, I don’t state these are “skinny” sizes. I wish I had a meeting with the fashion gods to change the term “plus size”. Are we happy with women who wear ‘double digits” classifying them as “plus size”. Am not! I wish we didn’t have to bucket sizes 10 and up as “plus size”. Designers need to just embrace sizes and create clothes for ‘everyone” and classify as a size not term.
At least the curvy revolution have started with “curvy” body forms. Recently, two Cornell students developed a plus-size dress form with more accuracy than ever before, allowing designers to accomodate larger body types.
Yes! The Curvy Revolution has started… now if I could work on changing the classification to a “size” that would be great…. but not in this lifetime.
