This story is good news for all the fat girls who’ve come after me. They actually design prom dresses in sizes larger than 14 now. I went to three proms in my teen years (so much for fat girls being unpopular or having to stay home!) and each time I wore a sized-up skinny dress. They weren’t all that flattering.
Apparently now, the designers are having such success with their Upsize Cinderella wear, that girls smaller than size 12 are asking for DOWNSIZED versions.
Maybe I’ll have a daughter after all.
