There was a time in India, when, being overweight meant going to your local tailor and getting your clothes specially altered or stitched. Not only was that a headache, but it also meant that you could not simply go the store and pick what is latest in trend. Explaining it to the tailor never got you anywhere, so you just left it and were satisfied with whatever was available. Of course, that was back then! With the concept of plus size clothing gaining popularity, Indian clothing is also available in bigger sizes to cater to that segment of population which is often ridiculed because of ‘excess baggage’.
