The Plus Size world is expanding for the men folk and it's time we rejoice!
Although The Fat Girl Show is generally about issues, celebrations, and icons within the female plus size world, TFGS does not discriminate. Gurrl, the Big Boys are welcome here!
There have been quite a few headlines in the PS Men's world such as ASOS's new sizes, and a PS Men Modeling Agency in the UK!
Beloved retailer ASOS is launching a plus size men's department with clothing going up to XXXXL (Why aren't we calling it 4XL?), making it the first brand among its competitors - Urban Outfitters, Top Shop, and H&M, to do so, claims Mic.
Additionally, Plus Size Model Agency "Bridge" is launching a Plus Size Men's division this year with XXL personal trainer and model Ben Whit.
According to the Daily Mail, 'It seems only right that we represent men and champion that message across the sexes,' Charlotte Griffiths, co-director of Bridge. 'I think it was something the public and the brands have been waiting for.'
Speaking of models, there's always been a discrepancy in the Fatshion world about what constitutes Plus Size begins and what constitutes Plus Models?
And are they the same thing? Now, entering the male model world - what constitutes a Plus Male Model?
According to Mic.
Over at ASOS, the sizes for the plus-size men's section goes up to 4XL with it's pants sizes beginning at a 44-inch waist, so that means men who are that size or over are definitely plus-size. Over at the plus-size brand MVP Collections, clothing comes in sizes up to 6XL and jeans come in sizes 38 to 50. Over at the big and tall brand Oublier, shirts and pants go up to a 5XL.
It seems that just as with the ladies, our big brethren are as lost as we are.
