What is with the lack of appropriate attire for evening ware lately in certain sizes? I understand they are trying to cater to club kids but once you get past say a size 11 in adult they seem to get shorter and tighter or go the opposite direction and look like a short mumu with no form. For a country that is said to have such a high obesity problem, it would seem that there would be more availability in the big and tall range rather than trying to make a dress that is the size of a shirt. It is one thing if you wanted to dress that way but one should not be forced to do so from lack of anything appropriate. Also. given that for quite a few lines a size 12 is 2x it would seem that they would prefer larger women to be naked.
Do you think designers are out of touch with the general public?
I had the same problem when i was underweight. Just because i wore a size 2 did not mean i wanted my butt hanging out of clothing. There is only one designer i know of that does high fashion or evening type wear for plus size and it looks good rather than the oversized tents others do.
