First Proenza Schouler admitted that they can’t afford for their own clothes, and now Marc Jacob’s President Robert Duffy took to Twitter to complain about being too large for his. If designers are too fat and too poor for their own clothes, then what hope is there for the rest of us? Duffy debated doing a Marc Jacobs plus size line (they currently go up to 16, but Duffy wants to go higher). Under the Twitter name MarcJacobsInt:

This exciting prospect follows news that Saks will carry designer plus sizes this fall (think Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, YSL, Fendi and more). Check out some of our favorite plus size picks from Bloomingdales:

This Cashmere Exclusively by Bloomingdale’s Plus Size Zebra-Print cardigan ($178) is a great, lively pattern for fall and comes in up to 3X (22-24).

You will love the bold color and pretty, feminine details of this Elie Tahari Plus Size “Melanie” Tunic ($298). It screams “work to cocktails” top.

How sweet is the under-$100 price tag of these perfect-fitting Not Your Daughter’s Jeans Plus Size “Marilyn” Straight-Leg Ponte Pants ($98), which go up to an American size 24?
