You’d be hard-pressed to find a celebrity gossip magazine these days that doesn’t include at least one article about body image or an actress learning to “accept her curves.” But while there’s evidently a huge audience for these types of stories—and the weight-loss interview that inevitably appears six months later—both mainstream and high-end fashion retailers are yet to catch up.

A particularly telling statistic is the difference in monetary success between Jessica Simpson’s clothing brand and Victoria Beckham’s. Beckham’s super-skinny designs have received accolades from critics and earned her a place at New York Fashion Week, netting her company $95 million last year.
