plus size clothing Standard female clothing sizes are proportioned for Petite, Junior, Misses, and Women's figure types, based primarily on height, bust size, waist size, hip size, and back waist length measurements.  Plus sizes are proportioned for fuller figures, and are often considered to include Women's sizes 14W or larger and Women's Petite sizes 14WP or larger.  Plus-size clothing may also be labeled XL-XXXL.  The style and cut of plus size clothing is designed specifically to enhance the appearance of the full figured woman.  This clothing is usually available in its own department; however the number of stores dedicated solely to plus-size clothing is on the rise.

In the past, it was a difficult task to find stylish plus-size clothing, but more recently, manufacturers have begun to take notice of the need for current trends in this arena.  More than 60% of American women and teens are considered plus-sized, making this an important market segment.
