Don't Expect To See The Words 'Plus-Size' Anywhere On Melissa McCarthy's Clothing Line! Find Out Why!

Melissa McCarthy doesn't want to label her customers!

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."

Melissa added:

"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."

You're absolutely right, lady! Clothing should be easy! Last month, we got a sneak peek at the movie star's line, which she promised would include sleeves, jeans, and pockets!

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?!

More Support Comes For Banning The Term "Plus-Size" — Do You Think It Should Go Too?

Filed under: AustraliasticModelsTyra BanksFashion Week

Model Robyn Lawley wants to ban the term

Robyn Lawley is a gorgeous size 12 model.

In the fashion industry, she’s considered “plus-size”.

But considering that the average size of an American woman is a size 14, “plus-size” is a bit of a misnomer, no??

Robyn certainly thinks so, and similarly to Tyra Banks, she argues that the term “plus-size” should be completely banned in the fashion industry!!

During Milan Fashion Week, the beautiful Australian voiced her thoughts on the matter, saying:

David's Bridal Investing In Realistic Mannequins! Getting Thicker Waists & More Realistic Breasts!

Get the scoop on David's Bridal\'s new realistic wedding dress mannequins!

Not only have too-perfect models come under scrutiny in the fashion industry of late — so have mannequins!!

Thankfully they can’t be offended because they’re not alive!!! Or are they!? Creepy!

Anyway. Last year a lingerie shop in Sweden embraced plus-size mannequins, which were an instant hit! This year American Apparel went for merkined mannequins, which were NOT as much of a hit!

And now David’s Bridal, the largest bridal chain in the U.S., is doing what Sweden did for future brides-to-be.

The goal is to make shopping for your big day a whole new experience, as David’s Bridal VP Michele Von Plato explained:

Target Uses Maternity Model For Plus-Size Dress! Thinks Maternity Wear & Plus-Size Is The Same!?

Filed under: Oops!Fashion SmashionSad SadTargetGIFs

Target is feeling the heat once again for using a maternity model for their plus size apparel!

Target just can't seem to get the whole plus-size thing right!

A while back, they came under fire for calling a gray plus-size dress Manatee Gray, while their equivalent standard size dress was Dark Heather Gray. See their apology HERE!

Guess they didn't learn their lesson, because now they're apparently using a maternity model for plus-size wear!?

It would appear so!

On Target's website, they're selling a "Merona Women's Plus-Size Short-Sleeve V-Neck Maxi Dress" modeled by what is obviously a maternity model. She even has a hand over her baby bump as if she's sending loving vibes to the embryo within!

Did they just skimp and not hire a plus-size model? Was it just a simple mix-up? We don't know, but we DO know it looks pretty bad for Target!

See their awkward blunder …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

NeNe Leakes Is Launching Her Own Clothing Line! Get The "Curvy Girl" Deets HERE!

Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes is launching her own clothing line, and she wants YOU to be a part of it!

This is an inneresting development!!

Even though she used to make fun of fellow Real Housewives of Atlanta star Sheree Whitfield for her clothing line back in the day, NeNe Leakes is officially branching into the world of fashion!

Guess the motivation to cash as many Trump checks as possible was enough for her to ignore any previous misgivings about the fashion biz, LOLz!

And lucky for our sleuthing skillz, the I Dream of NeNe star recently posted a casting call that hints at the focus of her collection. The listing reads as follows:
