Experts have said the plus-size market offers the greatest opportunity for growth in retail today. Think about it: How many plus-size sections do you encounter when you shop these days, especially in New York? Forever 21 is wisely tapping into that market, launching a plus-size line this May called Faith 21. The average woman is a size 14, but most designers don't produce beyond a size 10. If the line is successful, we wonder if other apparently fattist stores will produce plus-size lines. [All the Rage/LAT]
