Tiny Porn Star -- Fashion Industry Hates Little People

1/25/2011 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Howard Stern's favorite 79-pound porn star claims the fashion world is so obsessed with plus size people -- that the needs of TINY women have been ignored -- and now she's doing something about it.

TMZ has learned ... Lil' Lupe Fuentes has launched her own fashion line geared at the little people called Sexy Little Angel -- and the only sizes she offers are Small, Petite and Tiny.

Lupe -- who's 4'9" -- tells us, "In America, there are all of the plus size stores for those who are big, or overweight, when the ideal for many is to be thin and fit."

She adds, "I have nothing against women who are overweight, but I can’t shop in their stores."

Clearly, she's never been to Abercrombie, Guess, Splendid, Alice and Olivia, Forever 21, Baby Gap...

I have to agree. I am 4'9 83 lbs. I have a very hard time shopping in the stores you mentioned. The fashion industry only caters to 5'3 and above and over 100 lbs.

I say THANK you and if she wants help I would love to help her.

Oh and don't even get me started on shoes!!

It is a curse to be short (which I am not). I wish her clothing line the best.

It's not about being skinny, it's about being little. If you are skinny and averaged height/tall or plus sized average height/tall there are all kinds of off the rack options. Some stores do offer "short" lengths which is generally a 30 inch inseam and is still far too long for me. What's a girl to do when she's a size 0 with a 26 inch inseam? Tailors aren't cheap! Go Lil Lupe!

Seriously... don't offer small sizes. Le Chateau, Laura Petites, Sirens, Urban Behaviour and Urban Outfitters, Suzy Shier... I could go on and on. If she's talking about petites, as in height wise, get them hemmed and taken in, just like us bigger girls usually have to get a bigger size and then get them fit to our bodies. As for sizes, all of those stores go to a size 1 and usually those sizes are in abundance because no one wears them. Get a tailor. Her brand isn't going to go anywhere. There's no market for it.

I've listened to my wife grumble about clothes while shopping in the preteen section of stores for almost 20 years. So I sent her the link to the site.
Not sure why people find more options for small women to be so offensive. Do you also complain about the number of micro breweries in the US?

I am 4'10", 97lbs. WTF is this girl talking about? I was just at New York and Company, where I bought a pair of size 0 dress pants and didn't even have to have them altered. I have tons of gorgeous dress clothes for work, as well as casual clothes. There are tons of options available for great prices too, in many many stores. She'll full of it.

More porn 'stars' on TMZ; a very high percentage of these women end up all-f*cked up on drugs, alcohol, AIDS and many commit suicide. TMZ -further degradation of America. TMZ; Totally Moronic Zombies. You should be ashamed of yourselves promoting degradation of women. You and your business model are 100% trash for trash people.

And thats the truth    

I love all the fat people getting up in arms about this. Jackie why would she go to Asia? This is America right?! Land of the free and home of the whopper!
We cater to fat women, but guess what? Your curves are not beautiful, you are just fat. Your rolls take away from your face. Stop eating all the time, start working out and you wont be as disgusting as you are now.

First of all, Jackie made the remark about going to Asia because the ladies there are very petite. Secondly, a lot of hispanic women are also petite (short). The average height of women in America is about 5ft 6. I am 5ft 8 and when I was growing up in the 80's only one store had pants for talls. Now I dont have a problem with it. I had a friend back in the 80's also who wore a size 0. I went shopping with her one time and we looked in every store in the mall and she did not find anything. Talls and petite sizes were hard to come by.

Now I have an issue with your statement about fat people getting up in arms about this subject. So what you are saying is that if someone weighs more then 76 pounds, they are fat? I think I would look rather silly weighing 76 pounds at 5ft 8. I also read the posts that were prior to yours and quite frankly I did not see where there were any hateful fat women posting. You must be either fat yourself or you have an eating disorder to keep yourself thin.

Based on the comments I'd say there are several markets which are not being catered to. (I know that was a horrible sentence but I'm tired.)

I mean how dumb can she be? Like i walk in to Amercian Eagle thinking "damn this was made for tiny bitches!" It's like she walked in to lane bryant or Torrid thinking "omg are these the only clothes in the world" Get off your back and step in to a mall dumb bitch.
