All I desire this summertime is a gingham t-shirt dress. I search different websites every couple of days, questioning just how much compromise I’m ready to make on the design, the color, and the length. But it’s all academic, because this product doesn’t exist in my size. No, it’s not even that I’ve found one that’s more than I wish to invest. It actually doesn’t exist. As a UK 20-22, there are a limited quantity of locations where I can go shopping.
All of which is why I completely disagree with those individuals presently petitioning retailers to lose the plus size labels. Their argument is that large size is an useless term - and one that suggests women over a size 18 are a minimal group who go shopping differently from others, dictated by out-dated rules like no stripes or strong colors.
