I honestly had no idea that Melissa McCarthy was starting a plus size clothing line, but good for her! People love anything with a celebrity name branded on it, but Melissa’s actually pretty cool, and plus size girls totally need more cute clothing options since, you know they seem to be pretty few and far between, unless you wanna wear a dress that looks like a potato sack or tops that make you look like you’re a 75-year-old woman named Gladys.
So what’s inspired the line? Well, exactly what I just said. Here’s how she explained it to MORE magazine (via People):
“People don’t stop at size 12. I feel like there’s a big thing missing where you can’t dress to your mood above a certain number,” she says. “[Malls] segregate plus-size. It’s an odd thing that you can’t go shopping with your friends because your store is upstairs hidden by the tire section: ‘We’ll put you gals over there because we don’t want to see you and you probably don’t want to be seen.’ ”
At the moment, it seems as though the pressure to get some pounds off have hit Melissa, since she was photographed looking very noticeably thinner. I really hope she did it for herself rather than for Hollywood. Either way, she looks great, just as she always has!
