There are plenty of plus-size folks who are.
What if they don't care to shed a few pounds, and what if they don't want to fit into smaller sizes?

Just curious.
The issue here is not one's appearance. Rather, it's the fact that "plus sized" clothing has more material, and thus requires more space in and adds more weight to one's luggage. This translates to a need to bring bigger suitcases and a likely problem with the airlines' weight restrictions.

And as an added bonus, loss of weight provides tremendous health benefits for those who are obese.
