Jessica Simpson: 'I Know What Works If You're Curvy'

Jessica Simpson is expanding – into the clothing world.

The singer, who caught a wave of criticism two weeks ago for wearing a pair of “mom jeans” and a double leopard print belt on stage, has designed a line of dresses for women of all shapes.

“I want to create clothes that flatter every figure. I know how a dress can make you feel so frumpy. I promise mine won’t,” Jessica told the March issue of In Style magazine.

Jessica already has a successful shoe line under her belt and she is now hoping her clothing designs will find favor with women as well.

“We want to reach every type of person – and we do. But mainly I’m all about you wearing the dress, not the dress wearing you,” she said. “I know what flatters a woman, and trust me, I’ve been judged a lot in my life. By now I know what works if you’re curvy.”

Jessica, who has refrained from commenting on her own curvier figure since the “mom jeans” incident,” told In Style that she wants to make women feel confident in her clothes.

“If my clothing and accessories make you feel great and let you walk proud and tall — in big, big platform shoes – then I’m happy,” she said.
