I'm so sick and tired of bad design, dressmaking and tailoring. Especially when it comes to plus sizes. Why should the larger ladies settle with the second or third best? And WHY all the baggy designs with weird seams and "cute" prints (flowers, always flowers....)?
Look at this example. It says alot about the problem I talk about.
Lindex, a huge chain of fashion stores, has a lot of hawaii-inspired items at the moment. In their "normal" section (size extra small to large) they have this cute dress. High waist, fun details and nice, flattering fit. A great summer dress.
In their plus size section (sizes large to 3XL) they have this dress. It's the same fabric and is the larger version of the dress above. Yet, it's not the same dress at all. Look at the waist! Baggy, frumpy model, short sleeves with elastic band (why?!) and not low cut at all (why would a fat girl wanna show some cleavage...). It's just horrible.
Why couldn't they just make the same cute dress in larger sizes?
I feel like starting a riot...<>
