We have seen a large demand for products for individuals who are plus or supersized. Some of the products listed below are plus-sized versions of items that are available to average size people. These products are designed to solve the unique problems of larger people. There is a great need for these products as In 1996 there wasn’t a single state in the United States where the adult obesity rate was greater than 20% and now over 14 years later, 49 states have crossed that line.
Increasingly, companies are making bigger products for America’s bigger people, customizing everything from caskets to seat belts. It used to be that products for overweight people were tucked away into the corner of stores. But now, businesses ranging from clothing retailers to car manufacturers recognize that big people are big business. Plus-size retail clothing now represents 20 percent of all clothing sales for women, and J.C. Penney Co., Target and Nordstrom are now competing with specialty stores such as Lane Bryant and Casual Male Big and Tall. The proliferation of products for big people may help reduce shame about being obese. See our list of products and websites for large people below.
