No love for the lovely lumpy ladies?

Sorry, for the awful title, but I only came up with it after reading this piece (which may as well have been written in soft focus for Skinemax) about the uniform adopted by many of the ladies we see cooking television. Nigella Lawson may have kick-started the trend towards cropped slightly cropped candy-colored t-shirts in cashmere or cotton, always with 3/4 sleeves. They’re cook-friendly, to be sure, and not frumpy like an apron. But what if you’re a bit geneously sized, like The Barefoot Contessa’s Ina Garten, or Southern spitfire Paula Deen? Does Lane Bryant or Chico’s make sexy, body-conscious t-shirts for them?
