In my opinion, Lane Bryant should be looking for a new President.
In a recent article about Full-Figured (read “fat”) Fashion Week in The Washington Post (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/07/06/AR2010070604552.html?sid=ST2010070605571) Mr. Woolf said that Lane Byrant’s customers are most concerned with comfort, then fit and finally style. “She’s not there on the cutting edge of fashion. She might be a year behind.”
Apparently Mr. Woolf thinks fatties are most happy when lounging around in muu-muus and sweats.
The only reason fatties might be a year behind in fashion would because cutting edge fashion is not available in our size! Fuck you very much.
After the company’s debacle over too much cleavage in its TV ad, Lane Bryant is wondering whether it should “step into the current cultural contretemps” (read fat acceptance). Woolf says, “Should we be doing more?” I say “DUH”.
