The World’s First Plus-Size Sportswear Maker for Women

Rsport launched last month with the goal of making apparel that enables every woman, no matter her body type, to be active. What on earth took so long?

Americans' bodies come in a huge range of shapes and sizes.

Size 14 has generally been recognized as the beginning of plus-size clothing, and most brands run the majority of their apparel options in "straight sizes" 2 to 12, and then stop there. The options for larger women simply don't exist or are too low caliber, say Deborah Christel and Susan Dunn, the co-authors of the study.

At Kade & Vos, we do not use the term "Plus Size". We feel that calling some sizes "Plus Size" means that these sizes and shapes are somehow different from other sizes.
