No limitations, no opposing voices, and most importantly no rules.
We are constantly hearing from top designers that sizes end at 12. Sometimes 14. Only thing is 14 is smaller than it was years ago. Realistically, frustration envelops our hearts every time We try to fit into that final size, hoping that We won't have to do the long walk from the dressing room empty handed because nothing we chose fit nicely enough for our natural curves. We only hope that the runway style of choice will compliment our bodies instead of leaving us ashamed that we have them.
