Rumor has it that Adele is collaborating with iconic British fashion house Burberry. The Grammy award winning singer is one of the few curvy women seen in the brand, being that the US sizes stop at XL and 14. What do you think? Should Adele collaborate with Burberry? Or would you prefer to see her design a plus size line for a different brand?

NYDAILYNEWS.COM reports:
Adele has been one of the few curvy ladies able to wear the brand's tartans and plaids -- in the U.S., sizes for apparel tend to stop at an XL or a size 14.

    Women looks better plus sized. It isn't necessary to look like a skeleton. Healthy is beautiful and healthy for life.

    I've seen all kinds of answers here. and one is for sure, as it is not goo for you to be too skinny ,it's not good to be too fat. none of it is beautiful,and non of it should be encouraged.
    anyway XL plus size is ok, (we are not talking about XXXL size,no?) it's cool for bigger people to be able to wear fashion clothes

    To increase their bottom line (not intended as a pun), it would be the smart thing to do.

    Honestly, I don't think that it should matter. Weight/size should not be such a big deal. If the chosen model is larger, then they are larger; if they are skinnier, then so be it. People waste too much energy caring about it.

    Finally, I am so tired of plus size girls being discriminated against. I fall in between plus size and normal so it's hard to find something cute for my size. It's not my fault I was born bigger in the chest and back area it just happened as I grew up.

    Of course Burberry should go plus size since the average American woman is now three times the size of an American woman 30 years ago.

    It's long overdue. Not all girls out there are fortunate enough to be blessed with Playboy
    Playmate bodies. If Burberry carries through with a plus size line, then I expect to see
    their profits take a significant jump.

    It doesn't sound awesome, but not because there's anything wrong with a plus-size line. Rather, it's because when I see Burberry tartan, I can only think of one thing: chavs.

    Another one of America's problem's: encouraging obesity. If you would like to wear the clothes, lose the weight.

    Can't lose my hips and boobs unless I go anorexic...and even then I will still have the hips. Are you telling me that even when I go down to my absolutely proper weight (this is with muscle tone, birthing hips and my height of 5'9) of 70kg, I am still fat because I can't fit into a size 2? My perfect size is Australian 12 to 14.

    Get real.

    I don't think it'll really "encourage" obesity. I'm a size XS but if they start offering XXL sizes I'm not going to feel the desire to become overweight.

    Though it might DIScourage already obese people from losing weight, if that's what you meant.

    People come in all shapes and sizes in order for Burberry to accomodate the masses it is the fiscally responsible thing to do.

    Isn't XL 'extra-large'? I would have thought that was plus-size.
  • Mel Mar... whateve... 2012/09/21 00:54:37

    In fashion XL is for very skinny people who have a bit more hips and a slightly larger bust.

    I have tried on XL clothing. My chest is a C and I have generous hips. XL clothing is like a tent.

    Fashion in some shops makes folks feel like they are blimps when they really are not. I know a few top line fashion stores in my city that stop at size 12 and anyone who asks for it are sneered at...also the sizing suggests that it is an XL and if you don't fit in it then you are fat fat fat (and not just tall or with a different bodytype to the skeletons who marched it on the catwalk)

    I think I is about time big designers like Burberry are goin to be making plus sizes! You shouldn't need to be Size 0 to wear nice clothes and I'm happy for Adele if she's involved in it, because Adele always looks stunning which proves you can be plus size and still glamorous! I think, in my opinion, making clothes sooo small, which for most people wouldn't be their natural shape, is very pro anorexia. I'm glad Burberry are taking a leap forward in the fashion industry and I hope they encourage other designers to do the same.

    She should collaborate with a fashion house that would make her fashions more accessible to the average woman, such as Liz Claiborn
