Good news for the flesh-blessed

Could be even Lane Bryant, long notorious for dowdy maternity-like tops with rickrack, is branching out into "cute" and chic.

Designer Sophie Theallet not only designs for the bony set, but also is doing some "plus" for Lane Bryant.

According to a story in the WSJ by Christina Binkley Sept 10, 2014, this has led her to an appreciation of the larger, curvier palette--and she is making larger sizes for her own line.

At first, she said, she was shy about casting larger models for lingerie. But these models, all soft and feminine, want the work and aren't shy.

So, yay, Sophie!

By the way, I don't get the X thing. 2X, 3X--what is this--times? Like "two times Courtney Cox"?

Also, doesn't X mean "sexy"? Of course it does.
