Although she no longer needs them herself, Kelly Osbourne remembers what it's like to be a big girl struggling to find cute clothes in plus sizes.

Now the "Fashion Police"-woman says her upcoming line of clothes aims to be all-inclusive, even for the ladies who need a few Xs on their tags.

"No one takes notice of a fat girl in fashion,” she said. "That’s the truth! It’s sad."

"That’s why I love women like Beth Ditto who are doing their own clothes," she continued. "That’s why when my line comes out I’ll never make anything that won’t be translated to plus-size as well. Because everyone deserves to wear fashion."

Fashion designers have notoriously struggled to (or just plain ignored) create quality, on-trend clothing for women above about a size 12.

But recent efforts to improve plus size options, vary the range of body types shown in fashion magazines -- or at least shame clothes makers into doing better -- may, finally, be having an effect.
