Title Role

July 11, 1996|JEANNINE STEIN

How many euphemisms are there for "large size"? Several. Department stores have a knack for giving their women's plus-size divisions generic, nonthreatening and sometimes cryptic names. You figure out what they mean. A sampling:

* Macy's: Macy's Woman

* Nordstrom: Encore

* Saks Fifth Avenue: Salon Z

* Robinson's-May: Woman's World

* Bloomingdale's: Shop for Women

* Spiegel (catalog): For You
