Clothes: if there were no prejudice against fat women

I recently asked whether there'd been any improvement in the availability of clothing for fat women, and the answer, in some detail, was almost entirely no, with some aspects getting worse.

Here's what I think the world would be like if the prejudice wasn't there-- there would be no differences in stylishness or quality. There might be some difference in price and availability for the less common sizes-- I think the mere size of the clothing is less important than not having as much advantage from mass production.

There might be some differences in what's stylish-- clothes wouldn't be designed to make women look thinner or to show off thinness-- but I'm not sure what the differences would be.
