2015 has been a really good year for plus size fashion in many ways. For people over a size 26 we have seen more options released and it seemed in some small way that brands were listening... Oh how we were wrong!

Loving your body is a battle, in a world surrounded by people telling you that you are wrong. The one thing you should be able to trust is plus size brands to tell you that you're worthy of their clothes and worthy of feeling great! After all, we're buying their clothes so they're going to want us to be happy fatties right? Wrong.
This happened tonight with one of my favourite brands and it breaks my heart to write about it. Scarlett & Jo have done SO MUCH for the world of plus size fashion - even just offering ALL of their items up to a size 32 makes them a rare breed. To be honest with you, the whole shenanigan surrounding this post went on for HOURS! I will perhaps write about all of that another time, we're all still trying to work out exactly what happened.
That said, this lady simply asked for a brand to do more types of clothing - she did not deserve to be shot down in the way that she did.... You're giving feedback to a brand, this is the stuff you should be striving for. One of your potential customers is telling you how they would spend their money - why are you simply being rude and dismissive?
