I never thought about the label of plus size and how it could be damaging. Melissa McCarthy is so amazing. I just love how grounded she is. She says:
“Women come in all sizes. Seventy percent of women in the United States are a size 14 or above, and that’s technically ‘plus-size,’ so you’re taking your biggest category of people and telling them, ‘You’re not really worthy.’ I find that very strange,” she told Refinery29. “I just think, if you’re going to make women’s clothing, make women’s clothing. Designers that put everyone in categories are over-complicating something that should be easy.”
What a great way to look at life. We should all feel beautiful because we are!

I think it’s interesting that the clothing department for large men isn’t labeled “plus.” It’s called, “big & tall.”
