The revelation shocked not only the candidate but also the other judges. Further, in her statement, Namita suggested Thapar, asking the entrepreneur to uncover the reason for making clothes for all sizes instead of only focusing on the plus sizes. She said:

“Sach much India my jo ye body shaming jise kehte hain, jo yeh ‘moti, moti’ bulate hain, uski target main bhi ban chuki hoon. Aapne aesa kyun nahi socha ki mein only plus size ke liye fashion banati hoon, na ki sab sizes ke liye.”

When asked by Namita Thapar, the entrepreneur explained that she doesn’t want to make plus-size people feel indifferent to others in any way. The pitcher went on to say that they don’t want to kick out plus-size people like other brands do by creating separate sizing charts or collections designed specifically for them. The clothing brand entrepreneur said:

“The biggest problem in the plus-size industry is that plus-size people are treated like outcasts. We want them to feel included by not having a separate size chart or collection for them. They are part of our entire range of collections.”
