I read this on the New York Magazine site, and found it elsewhere for confirmation. Forever 21 is opening a plus-sized line in May:
A friend of mine (of smaller stature) is always raving about Forever 21. She's always saying things like, "You'd look good in that," or "You should buy those!" I appreciate her input, but until now, they haven't made things in my sizes. It's a little thing, really, but I need the positive energy right now.
