Banned Apparel’s reputation in the plus sized market precedes them. From their blog: “Today’s plus size is very different to the 1950’s sizing which started at a modern size 10/12! Plus sizes had more to do with shape rather than measurement which is why “stout” was a better description back then. 1950’s plus size dresses and skirts were typically tea-length and could be tank style, cap sleeve, short sleeve, or full length. Necklines were very modest, and dresses were often embellished with nice buttons or playful necklines with bows or scalloped edges.”
