Hey plus-size gal, top designers want to dress you up nice8/27/2012
The fashion industry thanks the curvy scale-tippers among us who are sending sales of plus-size clothes skyward. With nearly two thirds of Americans now overweight, designers have heard the call for fashionable, XXXL duds. “Our fans were asking for clothes in larger sizes," says Khloe Kardashian, who along with her sisters is launching the Kurves denim line at Sears. "Just because you are a little heavier doesn't mean you want to be in a potato sack." Curvaceous fashionists have serious buying power, so big name stores are now devoting prime floor space to dressing them up. And it’s paying off – in line with America’s swelling waistlines, larger-size retailers are expected to rake in $9.7 billion by 2017. [Source]
