Because people refuse to be shamed into losing weight by having their obesity shoved in their face while shopping at clothing stores that don’t carry anything larger than a size 2, shops such as Forever 21 are releasing plus-sized lines.
According to an article published by Us, Forever 21 has a new line called Faith 21 which is geared towards “curvier girls that love fashion.” The sizes range from XL to 2XL. The article also mentions in passing that Kim Kardashian is a fan of Forever 21.
That did not sit well with Kim Kardashian. Not that she doesn’t love Forever 21 (she does) but because she doesn’t want to be even loosely associated with fat people. Readers might get the impression that she herself is a “curvier” girl. Which she most certainly is not, ahem. Kim wrote on her blog:
I feel that this clipping from Us Magazine is a bit misleading, so I wanted to comment on it.
I am a huge fan of Forever 21 and I’m very happy they have expanded their line to include a plus-size range, but I am not in that size category and this article makes it sound like I am! I am a curvy girl and I love my curves, but curvy and plus-sized are two very different things. I work really hard to maintain my curves while staying slim and healthy, so to be classed as a “fuller-figured woman” of extra large proportions is a little offensive.
For the record, I am a size 2, not 2XL.
So, don’t get the wrong idea, guys. Kim is a size 2 even though her ass dwarfs those of size 2XL’s. Fat people are cool and all, but Kim in no way, shape or form wants to be mentioned with them no matter how loose the association.
