      Beginning next year, Abercrombie and Fitch will offer plus sizes in its women's clothing line.

      Currently, the retailer does not carry women's sizes above a ten. The shift comes as sales and profit margins have taken a dip.

      The company has been slammed by many consumers and youth advocacy groups since comments CEO Mike Jeffries made in a 2006 interview surfaced. He said his clothes were more for "cool" and "good-looking" people.

      Jeffries has since apologized.

      Abercrombie and Fitch would not provide details on the new sizes or when they will be available.
