(WREG-TV) Beginning next year, Abercrombie & Fitch will offer plus sizes in its women’s clothing line.
Currently, the retailer does not carry women’s sizes above a ten.
The shift comes as sales and profit margins have taken a dip.
The company has been slammed by many consumers and youth advocacy groups since comments CEO Mike Jeffries made in a 2006 interview surfaced.
Jeffries said his clothes were more for “cool” and “good-looking” people.
Jeffries has since apologized.
Abercrombie and Fitch would not provide details on the new sizes or when they will be available.
