If the average woman is ‘plus-sized’, why doesn’t our fashion reflect that?

“America’s streets are full of what the fashion industry labels “plus-sized women” – far more than we previously thought. Thanks to a new study, we now know that the average woman is around a size 20. Not, as previously believed, a size 14. That means that the disconnect between the clothes in store windows and the bodies of women walking past them is greater than we had ever assumed…”

What other industry do you know that prevents people from buying it’s products on purpose? It makes not sense to me.
