It would seem that American body image desires are shifting — an NYU study found that in a depressed economy, men go for meatier women, while super-curvy singer Beth Ditto recently made an impression with her nude Love cover and is planning a plus-size clothing line. And she’s not alone — now megachain Forever 21 is tapping into the plus-sized market with a new clothing line set to debut in May called Faith 21. The collection is wisely aimed at targeting the oft-ignored “average” woman, who you might be surprised to find is a size 14. The Faith 21 fashions will be similar to Forever’s mix of standard runway knockoffs and hoochie club wear, but available in XL, 1X, and 2X sizes. Hmm, wonder if the line is called “Faith” 21 because of the company’s strong belief in Christianity…does Jesus believe bigger is better? [LA Times] Keep reading »
On my daily (um, I mean, bi-monthly) visit to Forever 21’s web site, guess what I saw? At some TBD future date, they’re coming out with $12.80-and-up swimwear sometime soon! Oh no, this is going to be so bad on my wallet. Already I’m addicted to their cute cotton panties and their dress-up clothes — cheap, cute, and comfy bikinis will be the death of me.
Fret not, Frisky gals, we’ll put the link up for all you whenever the items start to be sold online. Keep reading »
Kudos to Perez Hilton for noticing that Lo Bosworth seems to have copycatted her “Hills” finale party look from a look on Forever 21′s website. It’s clear the items she’s wearing aren’t from Forever 21, but the resemblance is nearly exact. However, unlike Perez, I’m not gonna hate on Lo. The Frisky has always had an appreciation for the 21, and thinks it’s high time those rich Laguna bitches did too! Keep reading »
Sex sells. But does doggy-style make shoppers want cheap, trendy tops? Our gal pal Heather is way into Forever 21, but she did a double take when she saw their mannequins doubled over and sent us a picture. Usually when we pose like this, the lights are out and weâ€™ve had a couple drinks, but apparently thatâ€™s just the look the store in New York Cityâ€™s Union Square is going for. Guess working it from behind is always in style!
