Misty Copeland to Launch Size Inclusive Dancewear Line
Ballerina Misty Copeland continues to break barriers in the dance community with her newest project, a size inclusive dancewear line. Copeland's line, Egal (French for "equal"), was created after her own struggles with dancewear. "I was going through this time where I had gained a lot of weight. I went through puberty really late in life and my bust had grown and I was like, 'I can't fit into these leotards that are like really made for prepubescent young girls.' It just became this mission of mine." No word on when Egal will arrive on the market, but Copeland hopes the success of Egal leads to a plus size clothing line in the future.
