VILNIUS - A Lithuanian MP has taken up the fight for full-figured women, demanding that stores stock XXL size clothing for the ample-bodied.
Social Democrats MP Birute Vesaite said shops sold garments that would only fit models and anorexic women.
Vesaite asked the question "Where is XXL?" in an open letter to the country's Ministry of Health, the Lithuanian Association of Tradesmen and the Lithuanian Apparel and Textile Industry Association.
She said she took the action after receiving letters from Lithuanian women concerned about the lack of clothing available in their size.
