(NECN) - Size matters, at least according to a recent opinion piece written for businessinsider.com, where the author takes popular teen retailer Abercrombie and Fitch to task for not having extra-large and double- XL sizes for women, claiming that it's because the store doesn't want overweight people wearing their clothes.
NECN reached out to Abercrombie & Fitch for comment, but never heard back.
Doctor Sherry Pagoto is a licensed clinical psychologist and an associate professor of medicine at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
Is it fair to be angry at the company?
“What it sounds like with Abercrombie & Fitch, their reason for having an exclusive size range is because of what they define as sexy, and they’re trying to sell that message to teenagers,” said Pagoto.
She says she hopes society doesn’t buy into it and allow the store to set the beauty standard.
She does believe teens are smarter than that.
