When Lane Bryant announced the special line designed by Christian Siriano, I was stoked. I knew I had to check out the offerings and definitely make a purchase or two.Then, when he came to Leslie Jones’ rescue, recently, I fell even more in love with the former contestant from Project Runway. When no one else stood up to make her a dress for the premiere of “Ghostbusters,” Christian raised his hand.
It’s important that designers like Christian take notice of women of different shapes — because whether you’re plus-size like me, or really tall or really short or just different — most clothing you see on the runway and red carpet is made for a very specific body type.
So I am happy to support designers like Christian — support them with my money — and give them the props they deserve.
Thanks for standing by women of all sizes, Christian!
