Don't Expect To See The Words 'Plus-Size' Anywhere On Melissa McCarthy's Clothing Line! Find Out Why!
Melissa McCarthy is SUCH an inspiration!
Not only is she a HIGHlarious actress, but she's also a total boss when it comes to branding her clothing line! At the end of last year, the 44-year-old announced she was going to launch her own line called Seven7.
But if you think you're going to see a label that reads "plus-size" on any of the tags, think again!
The Ghostbusters actress isn't a fan of that term because she says it makes women of certain sizes feel excluded:
"Women come in all sizes. Seventy percent of women in the United States are a size 14 or above, and that's technically plus-size, so you're taking your biggest category of people and telling them, 'You're not really worthy.' I find that very strange."
"I just think, if you're going to make women's clothing, make women's clothing. Designers that put everyone in categories are over-complicating something that should be easy."
And it's clear Melissa has no intention of leaving any body type out! The sizes will range from 4 to 28, and NOTHING will cost more than $150!
We're so excited for her line to launch! Are U?!
