Melissa McCarthy's clothing line is launching in August, and the June issue of More magazine offers details on what to expect. McCarthy will sell Melissa McCarthy Seven7 through Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's, and Macy's, as well as her own website. It's described as "charming" and "whimsical." The line will launch with 80 pieces available in sizes 4 to 28, with prices ranging from $59 to $159.
"People don’t stop at size 12," she told More, saying she wanted to help change plus-size shopping for the better. "I feel like there’s a big thing missing where you can’t dress to your mood above a certain number," McCarthy said. "[Malls] segregate plus-size [women]. It’s an odd thing that you can’t go shopping with your friends because your store is upstairs hidden by the tire section. 'We’ll put you gals over there because we don’t want to see you and you probably don’t want to be seen.'"
