Plus-size retailers embrace sexy

For the women's plus-size apparel market, dowdy clothing is no longer acceptable. Brands such as Ashley Stewart and Lane Bryant are embracing sexy and designing looks to fit the $18 billion plus-size market. Sales in this growing market were up 7 percent last year in the United States and are expected to continue on an upward trend. More brands are now designing for how women in this demographic want to dress, not how others expect them to dress. Story
