A look from plus-sized clothing line Faith 21 With all the over-filled racks and massive square footage of Forever 21 stores, you would think they would offer something for everyone at their notoriously mind-boggling low prices. But even with all that merchandise, the fast-fashion chain has never addressed plus-size customers, until now.A look from plus-sized clothing line Faith 21

On May 1, they will launch Faith 21 a line of clothing similar to Forever 21, but in plus sizes.F21_1263_2

Faith 21 will offer tops, jeans, tanks, leggings and skirts in a junior plus size as well as XL, 1X and 2X. The design aesthetic follows Forever 21’s trendy take on everything from runway knockoffs to jersey basics.

F21_1235_4 As reported in yesterday’s Image section, the average American woman is a size 14, with many who rarely find cute and inspiring clothes, especially when the majority of designers don't often produce beyond a size 10.

Hopefully the Faith 21 line will deliver on style and fit.  If anything, we know it’s affordable. Prices range from $3.50 to $34.80.

Faith 21 will be available in L.A. on May 1 at Lakewood Center Mall, Montebello Town Center, Los Cerritos Mall, Anaheim Plaza and online at
