It is no secret that finding clothing for sizes above about a 12 can not just be difficult, but also straight up disappointing. Lines for plus-size women are often cut strangely, sold online and only created in flat colors (because it flattens your tummy!!!!). Basically, they’re boring and we do not enjoy them.

Feeling pressure to slim down for your bikini? Don’t. The only thing that actually creates a “bikini body” is to put a bikini on your body (or to make a body out of bikinis, I guess). More
We make fun of Gwyneth Paltrow a lot here at The Gloss, but that’s typically just us poking at her ridiculously out-of-touch attitude toward money, food and the world at large.
Now, though, she’s being hit with a whole lot of criticism from all directions for selling bikinis to children on GOOP. I’m admittedly not opposed to bikinis for kids — so they’re wearing two pieces of cloth instead of one, big deal — but I am totally disturbed by the photos GOOP is using to market these bikinis to children.

Elizabeth Hurley is still very real, you guys. We weren’t entirely sure what the onetime Austin Powers love interest did with her time until this morning, though, when we found out 1) she designs swimwear and 2) she’s involved in a scandal thanks to that swimwear line’s kid’s collection. Hurley calls the looks “fun” on her website, but parents who hate fun have banded together with a child protection charity in the U.K. and are accusing Hurley of sexualizing young girls. More
Ryan Lochte continues to prove he’s the best — and also an anomaly. More
Food on the runway? Brilliant idea. More
We tend not to pay too much attention to the Miami swimwear shows (we just don’t like fringe), but today we have a nice story from down that way: a 10-month-old Miami girl with Down syndrome named Valentina Guerrero will star in a campaign for DC Kids. More
We’re somewhat surprised this didn’t exist yet, also. More
Kate Upton has a whole new set of photos for Beach Bunny Swimwear. More
In the June issue of Vogue, pop star/actress/American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez can be seen wearing various designer bathing suits and demonstrating that she still has “it” despite the fact that at 42, she’s well over the age at which most Hollywood starlets are taken behind the woodshed and shot. But what does “it” even mean? Here, I will venture to guess what “it” is that J-Lo has in each of her swimsuit photos. Besides a gravity-defying ass and aristocratic bone structure, I mean. More
DANGEROUS MESSAGES AHEAD. More
This skirted monokini may take the cake. More
Fact: it’s hard for any item of clothing to look bad when it’s being worn by Bar Refaeli. More
