We Want To Know Exactly What Plus-Size People Hate About The Fashion Industry

We want to know.

It's no secret that the fashion industry discriminates against larger bodies.

Maybe you have a hard time finding your size at popular clothing stores. It's frustrating that you have to go out of your way to visit plus-size stores or shop online when other folks can find their size everywhere.

Perhaps you find it irritating that the majority of the plus-size models chosen to represent the body-positivity movement have the same hourglass figures and flat stomachs. Sure, it's a step in the right direction, but the industry is ignoring the full scope of plus-size bodies.
