At first, the news of the Kardashian girls are starting a plus-size clothing line sounded great! These are women, after all, who have realistic bodies and remain sexy knockouts. They aren’t confirming to Hollywood’s boney idea of beauty.
But then I read that the new line featuring pieces ranging from size 8 to size 16. Since when is a size 8 is considered a PLUS size? And based on what I’ve seen online, I’m the only one who considers a size 8 perfectly average and healthy.
The Kardashian Kollection for Dorothy Perkins will make its debut in Britain Thursday. Kim Kardashian said, “I am really glad to be able to promote a healthy, natural body shape, eating well and exercising and appreciating the shape that you naturally have.” Which I completely agree with! But honestly, I’m having trouble getting past sizes 8 through 16 being considered “plus” sizes.
The clothes look lovely, but still look like they are more for a size 8.
The collection is launching on Thursday, Nov 8, in London stores and online.
