Gorga’s Store Envy, Which Launched in 2015, Appears to Offer Pants in Sizes From 0 to 8
Gorga launched Envy back in 2015 along with a business partner. However, issues between the two led to Gorga’s business partner deciding to step away.
The Bravo star opted to keep the store and after a monthlong closure, she reopened it on her own, according to North Jersey. Envy has received criticism about her clothing sizes since her reopening in 2017, despite fans praising the look of many of her items.
Many posts shared by Gorga and Envy on social media have picked up comments from followers asking if she would be offering “more than a size 2.” Gorga has yet to respond to sizing criticisms.
According to the Envy website, typical clothing sizes range from extra small to large. Some of the pants on offer, including the ones worn by Gorga in her most recent social media post, are available from size 0 to size 8.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the U.S. shares the measured average height, weight, and waist circumference for women aged 20 and over. It states that the average height is 63.5 inches, or 5 feet 3 inches, the average weight is 170.8 pounds, and the average waist circumference is 38.7 inches. According to Heathline, these measurements mean that the “typical American woman wears a large to extra large pant size, or between a size 18 and 20.”
