“Do plus size clothes for teens encourage obesity?”

An article on plus-size-tall.com made me really upset! “Do plus size clothes for teens encourage obesity?” That is what the organization National Action Against Obesity think. OMG… it’s about time there will be ‘young fashion’ in larger sizes. Especially girls in their puberty, are struggling with sizes. I already wrote an article about this issue: Younger fashion for the ‘inbetweenies’!
“And when everybody else has fashion, you should, too.” A great quote of plus size model, author and campaigner Emme.

Forever 21, Asos Curve, Carma Koma, 17sundays, Veto jeans and Zizzi already have a young looking collection. But where are the others? Specially in the younger group of inbetweenies and plus size there is a BIG need for clothes in their size. A lot of brands, specialized in plus size have a ‘too mature look’. These teenage girls don’t want to look like their mum! HAHA time enough for that! No, they want fashion, girly stuff and clothes even their style icons or idols would wear! But in their size!
And another thing, not only teenagers want to have ‘young looking clothes’. Even grown up inbetweenies are shouting for some cool stuff! I think fashion and young can go together! This group wants fashion in their size!

This campaign from Forever21 with Tara Lynn…
