Alle has always been pretty aware of the advantages of dressing as a thin woman. "Thin privilege is a very real thing," she said. "Though I knew that plus-size women have to jump through some insane hoops to shop, seeing HOW abysmal was eye-opening."

After all, jumpsuits come and go — but best friends are forever.
