On May 1, Forever 21 will launch a plus-size clothing line called Faith 21 in select stores and online, reports the Los Angeles Times. Faith 21 will offer tops, jeans, tanks, leggings and skirts in a junior plus size as well as XL, 1X and 2X.
I think this is exciting news considering the most common complaint I've heard about the fast-fashion chain (besides quality and blatant knockoffs) is the lack of adequate sizes. Just the other day, a reader made the following comment: "I love F21 just as much as the next budget conscious girl, but their sizes are so far from womanly it's ridiculous. I have a classic hourglass figure at a healthy weight for my height and their sizes barely even get over my head. What's a girl to do!?!?" —Katie
