Melissa McCarthy has made it very clear: her brand-new clothing line, Seven7, is not your typical celebrity side project. In an interview with Refinery29, the actress revealed that she鈥檚 got big plans to shake up the fashion world, starting with banishing the term 鈥減lus-size.鈥

鈥淲omen come in all sizes. Seventy percent of women in the United States are a size 14 or above, and that鈥檚 technically 鈥榩lus-size,鈥 so you鈥檙e taking your biggest category of people and telling them, 鈥榊ou鈥檙e not really worthy.鈥 I find that very strange,鈥 she said. 鈥淚 just think, if you鈥檙e going to make women鈥檚 clothing, make women鈥檚 clothing. Designers that put everyone in categories are over-complicating something that should be easy.鈥


McCarthy鈥檚 line of cozy-chic separates and desk-to-date dresses will be available in sizes 4 through 28, a move that makes the easy-feeling pieces available to lots of women. Her inclusive attitude won鈥檛 stop there though, and she鈥檚 got a pretty game-changing plan up her sleeve to make shopping for any size an easier experience. McCarthy said she鈥檚 been working with 鈥渁 couple of very big retailers鈥 to completely ditch the 鈥渟egregated plus section鈥 in stores and put all of the line鈥檚 sizes in one place. 鈥淟et friends go shopping with their friends,鈥 she said. Cross your fingers for those thoughtful changes to happen in global retailers including Nordstrom, Macy鈥檚, Bloomingdale鈥檚, Lane Bryant and Evans when the line launches this month. For now, snag your favorite pieces on HSN while you can 鈥 some styles are already sold out (we鈥檙e eyeing the camel fringe cardigan sweater + *stretch* flare jeans).
