Up until a few years ago, nearly all of the fashion industry’s attention was directed towards developing dresses and items for women that fit the ‘size zero’, ‘slim’ or ‘fit’ mold. While clothes came in thousands of different designs, patterns, and colors; they only came in a limited number of sizes meant for a small portion of the female population.
In recent years, however, awareness has increased due to activists speaking up on the issue and companies have finally started to become more inclusive and considerate. Thanks to that, these days all sorts of clothes are available for women of all sizes.
