Melissa McCarthy Says Labeling Clothing as Plus-Size Tells Some Women They’re Not ‘Worthy’

• Melissa McCarthy’s clothing line Melissa McCarthy Seven7 is launching at major retailers, McCarthy takes issue with the label “plus size,” and how it feels when women’s clothing is segregated in stores.

• “Seventy percent of women in the United States are a size 14 or above….so you’re taking your biggest category of people and telling them, ‘You’re not really worthy.’ I find that very strange,”

• Her line comes in sizes four through 28 and includes basics, leggings, tees and loungewear. “I just think, if you’re going to make women’s clothing, make women’s clothing.” McCarthy
