Is It Getting Harder to Find Plus Size Clothing?
For many years now, the Internet has been the best place for women around the world to shop for plus size clothing. There are far more options provided by online retailers than you can ever find in local stores. And that is without mentioning the problems with rude salespeople and uncomfortable fitting rooms you have to face locally. But some women are having a hard time finding certain sizes, even at plus size retailers.
Every designer of casual plus size clothing uses different sizing systems to make their garments. One common sizing system is 1x – 5x. However, many shoppers have recently found that the largest of these sizes, 4x and 5x, are becoming harder to find. What is leading to this seeming shortage of larger sizes?
It could be good news for online plus size clothing retailers, since many of them are selling out of their 4x and 5x garments. It could also mean that more women are becoming aware of their fashion options and purchasing the clothes they really want in the styles that are designed to fit them. Regardless of the cause, you might want to keep track of your favorite online stores that are keeping regular stock of 4x and 5x plus size clothing for women.
Stephen, Your Designer
“There is an amazing feeling of artistic accomplishment when all the parts come together into one harmonious aesthetic. It's a connection with who you are and the elements you choose to express yourself visually. This is what making clothing is all about for me. It's like when a songwriter hears his first written notes from a voice or a baker who has practiced a recipe and nails it or a figure skater who exceeds her own expectations. I express my sense of art in clothing. I see things in color, shape and texture. I react to the touch of silk on my skin and my eyes are aware of how color combinations make me feel. My goal is to bring all of these intuitive notions to garments that are sized for larger women. If I can accomplish this then I have reached my goal.” – Stephen
