To be fair this only seems to be the case for a small number of labels. Most will make the same design in clothes up to a size 12 or 14. Of course, that doesn't mean the stores will carry very many of the larger sizes. That brings me back to my original question. Do stores think that women who buy larger sizes have less money? Or that they do have money but spend less than skinny women? Or do they think that we don't shop at all? Or only wear mumus? I don't know the answer, of course, but the situation is prompting me to sew some outfits for myself so that I CAN look stylish. And of course, thank God, there is jewelry to fit every size woman in just about any style. And if I can't find jewelry to flatter me, I can make that, too.
