Kelly Brook has designed a range of clothes for plus size clothing retailer simply be. The sizes range from size 10 to size 32.

Sorry but last time I checked, a size 10 wasn't plus sized (neither is a 12 for that matter).

Ridiculous.

They aren't implying that size 10 and 12 are plus sizes... It just so happens that she's designing a fashion line for a brand that is known for their plus size range. Also what is ridiculous is that you are following what the Daily Mail has produced...

No more ridiculous than the fact that some people are a size 32. 32??!
I hate how hollister (and other places selling small clothes) get in so much crap for 'promoting eating disorders' yet somehow it's ok to promote obesity...

Yeah *some* people. These shops aren't promoting obesity... If high street shops stopped selling plus size clothing then they are discriminating which is breaking the law.

Yeah you've got places like UO, Hollister, Topshop and AA that cater for the 'smaller' sizes but then you've got places like Simply Be, New Look, M&S, Next and Evans (which is the plus size Topshop) who cater for the 'bigger' sizes.

I'm an 8-10 but I think it's ridiculous that size 12 is now classified as 'large' in shops these days.

Yes but what I mean is that Hollister etc get so much crap for only selling smaller sizes. Yet if shops only sell big sizes that's fine, everyone is just like 'yeah, let's promote curvy women!' it really annoys me how these days you're actually hard pushed to find a size 6 or an 8 in the shops these days. Maybe if there weren't so many massive sizes available then people would be forced to lose weight. It's disgusting how nearly 40% of the adult population is clinically overweight...

Size 12 is massive unless you're tall.

You do realise that some of the women wearing the larger sizes may not be fat, right? Bone structure and boobs makes a difference. You could get a skinny woman wearing a size 14. I'm a size 8 on bottoms but I'm forced to go with a size 10/12 on top because I literally cannot fit my boobs into anything smaller.
So that's why Hollister got so much crap. Because they stupidly assume that larger sizes= fat.

I do agree with you. However every shop I go into always seems to have LOADS of size 6s left and no 10s...especially primark. It seems you either have to be tiny or huge to get clothes in some shops!

Hollister do sell up to around a size 16 though I think. And no one could possibly be slim and a size 32. That size just shouldn't exist.

I'm a size 12 on bottom because of my bum. I don't think I hear anyone complaining.

It's not massive. If you think size 12 is massive, what about sizes above 16? :lol:

Yeah, it's mainly the size 8s I have problems with tbh. It just annoys me how these days being fat is almost trendy. Like everyone is being told to 'you go girl, embrace your curves!' it's almost as bad as telling people to eat themselves to death.

It's not massive, but it is largish for a small woman (below 5'5). If you think size 12 is massive, what about sizes above 16? :lol:
Let's not even go there

Tbh I don't know why people even bother with that crappy shop. Their clothes are trash.
True that :lol: I agree with you about it being 'trendy' to be fat now. I don't understand where it came from. Sure, fat shaming is awful, but encouraging people to be fat is just as bad.

The Daily Mail is full of crap anyway, wouldn't take any of their articles seriously if I could. I'm a size 8-10 and according to them, I could probably be passed as a whale. :yep:
