OK, it is possible you have never heard of size XO. It is also possible that size XO does not exist or never has existed. Well, the fact of the matter is that I am fairly sure size XO does exist. I was on facebook last night and on the Fashion Bug page someone was asking why Fashion Bug charged more for size XO then they did for size XL. The lady writting the post mentioned she measured them and they appeared to be the same. Anyway, I tried to research the size and did not find much at all. It is my understanding (possibly and incorrect understanding) that size XO clothing was created for larger size women in the same manner that size zero was created for smaller size women. It is very possibly simply a "vanity" size.
OK, here is how Fashion Bug explained the size, "The sizes XL and OX are in fact different. An OX provides more room in various areas of the garment such as the body, armholes, sleeve length and shoulders. And a 1X have even more room then the OX. I hope this clears up any confusion."
Here is a quote from my wordpress blog.
"I have recently learned that their is a plus size fashion size XO. I have not been able to find much information regarding this size. It is of my opinion that this is simply a vanity size similar to the creation of size zero for smaller size women. After all, what is the purpose of creating a size "0" other then vanity. Now it appears that plus size people also have a vanity size to their clothing. In my opinion all of this makes no sense. Anyway, let me know if you have more information regarding the purpose and sizing of clothing size XO."
