Should all brands include plus-sizes?

Inclusivity has been a buzz word, especially in fashion. Brands are announcing expansions to their offerings to accommodate plus-size women and are proud to call themselves inclusive. But it's obvious some brands are including plus-sizes as a marketing ploy and simply don't know what they are doing. Nasty Gal was blasted for not being inclusive enough and Victoria's Secret was chastised when they backpedaled by saying they would begin to include plus-size models in its shows.

Brands were eager to jump on the size-inclusive bandwagon in 2018. In the past, plus-sizes were an afterthought. But now brands are putting plenty of thought into the idea of plus-size fashion. According to Fashionista:

Thankfully those times have passed, and 2018 has been the dawning of a new age in plus size and size inclusive fashion. Every year, plus size options in the marketplace increase, and 2018 surpassed the amount of new brands that launched in previous years. 2018 also saw existing cult favorite brands like Nasty Gal, Madewell, J.Crew, Reformation and Wildfang raise their size ranges, and we're hoping that in 2019 we'll see those brands expand sizing past a 20.

But for brands like Victoria's Secret, it may be a bit too late for them to join the plus-size wave and critics are calling for them to leave it alone. The brand recently found itself in hot water after its Chief Marketing Officer Ed Razek said the brand wasn't interested in having plus-models on the runway. The brand later ate its words but by then it was too late. Fashion and Lifestyle Editor of Huffington Post, Jamie Feldman said she doesn't want to see plus models at a Victoria's Secret fashion show:

I am not self-loathing and I am not averse to creating change in the fashion industry more broadly. Nor am I in denial about the ways the fashion world and society at large have, in some ways, changed for the better when it comes to inclusivity.
The reason I don’t care to see a plus-size model in the show is because Victoria’s Secret is not, has never been and never will be the catalyst for change the industry so desperately needs.
