Melissa McCarthy Designs Clothes with All Women in Mind

Melissa McCarthy is a force to be reckoned with. The queen of comedy who makes us laugh until we cry is now also a dominant businesswoman in the fashion industry. Her new clothing line, Melissa McCarthy Seven7, is stirring up the fashion industry's perception of plus-size women. The collection features clothing in sizes 4 to 28, ranging from $59 to $159. From graphic tees to printed cardigans to jeans and leggings, this collection satisfies all your fall clothing needs. 

As a woman considered plus-size by the fashion industry's unrealistic body standards, McCarthy wanted to improve the shopping experience for all other plus-size women. She was tired of shopping in segregated plus-size sections in clothing stores, where designers paid little mind to women her size. She told Refinery29 that 70 percent of women in the United States are size 14 or above.

“You’re taking your biggest category of people and telling them, ‘You’re not really worthy.’ I find that very strange,” said McCarthy. We agree. The fashion world doesn't take into consideration various body types and sizes, so McCarthy's collection is a refreshing new brand that appeals to the majority of women in the United States. 

Melissa McCarthy Seven7 encourages of all of us to love our bodies, whether we're a size 2 or a size 22. Take a look at some of our favorite pieces from the collection:
