Thankfully, we're way past the dark ages when plus-size women had few fashion options, and even fewer place to buy them. In 2015, new plus brands are offering fashion-forward designs, while existing companies are embracing inclusivity, and showing expanded size offerings. And yet, there are still some super-hideous options that seem to be targeted only to the plus-size market (we're looking at you, egregious cutouts and superfluous bedazzling). What gives?

Ahead, we're counting down our least favorite nightmare-inducing “trends” that are, for some reason, still being offered to size 14+ women. This is why we can't have nice things.
