The fashion world has finally realised there are lots of plus sized women and king sized men who want to look as nice as they possibly can. Style is finally available for the 'larger in stature' of us, giving many an opportunity to look and feel comfortable and at ease with our size. Now, plus size clothing is considerably more common, than ever before.
Men and women fall into any one of several body types, and depending on those types, their attire will vary.
- Large 'king size' men (tall and average build)
- Large 'king size' men (average height, obese)
- Average men (average height, average build)
- Small men (smaller in build, short and slim)
- Large 'plus size' women (tall, athletic type, average build)
- Large 'plus size' women (average height, obese)
- Average women (average height, average build)
- Small women (petite build, short and slim)
The average size is considered the norm, and has always been the criteria by which most clothing lines base their inventory each year. However, over the years, the average person has put on a few pounds here and there, creating a desperate need for plus size clothing in every type of attire.
Whether it is in the office environment, a night out on the town, or casual at home wear, we all deserve to look and feel as comfortable and stylish as we can.
Having clothing available in plus sizes or king sizes in no way endorses being overweight, but it does make it possible for those who need larger sized clothing to be able to dress appropriately. Teen and even pre-teen aged children are found to be heavier than in prior years, and this has been attributed to watching too much television or playing video games. Whatever the cause, the fact is these children deserve to dress well.
The larger department store chains, and smaller boutiques at the mall, have increasingly expanded their lines of clothing to include more plus size clothing for the many that need these sizes.
Men have their own issues when it comes to a proper fit in their clothing. A very tall man, slim to average in build, needs to have a longer inseam on their pants and longer sleeves on his shirts. He may not need them to be wider, merely longer. Along side him, is the average yet obese man, who has no need for those extra long pants or sleeves, he merely needs things a bit wider and roomier.
Women, who may be athletic in build and are taller than an average woman, most likely have no need for expanded waist lines or bust lines. They require longer sleeves on their tops and longer inseams regarding their pants. The woman, who is short in stature and wider in their proportions, will again have no need for extra length in the inseam of their pants, nor do they require the extra length in sleeves for their tops. What they do need is expanded waist lines on their pants and more room for their ample breast size.
Plus size clothing covers all the size issues for both men and women, allowing them to feel comfortable about themselves, as well as comfortable in the attire they wear in any situation.
