When you're a plus-size woman, you know how hard it can be to find clothes that fit.

And formal wear? If you're over a size 12 and need a fancy dress, you might as well not exist.

Even supermodel Ashley Graham has this problem. She told The Cut that even now, designers often won't dress her for red carpet events because of her size.

And one fashion blogger had opinions about that.

Bryan Grey Yambao, aka BryanBoy, is an OG style blogger. He's as famous for calling out the shady ethical practices in the fashion industry as he is for having great style.

Bryan changed the meaning of "influencer." He has a Marc Jacobs bag named after him, and was a judge on "America's Next Top Model." He makes a point of noting advertisers on his posts, and has clapped back at industry veterans for not disclosing gifted items.

Bryan took issue with Ashley talking about the fact that NO designers would dress her for the Met Gala.

In the interview with The Cut, Ashley and the interviewer got real about why one of the most successful models on the planet almost couldn't attend fashion's most elegant night:

“'I couldn’t get a designer to dress me,' she said. 'You can’t just show up in jeans and a T-shirt.'

She insists it’s just because she didn’t have the right designer relationships and there hadn’t been enough time to get a custom gown...but likely a factor was that Graham is well out of sample-size range."

But the fashion blogger seemed to misunderstand her #curvygirlstruggles, calling Graham out instead for insisting on only wearing "borrowed or gifted" clothes.

Bryan also wanted to know why Ashley didn't just *buy* her own dress — clearly missing the point.

What Bryan didn't realize is what MANY people in fashion don't realize: Curvy and plus-size women aren't "demanding" designers give them red carpet dresses because they don't want to buy them. They need to work with designers on custom outfits because nothing else exists.

Have you ever tried to buy a formal dress over a size 12? It's nearly impossible, no matter how much money you have. Designers simply don't make clothes for bigger bodies.

Additionally, the Met Gala isn't (jokingly) called "Fashion Prom" because of the relaxed dress code. Guests wear couture, or they don't attend. This would add even more pressure to women who don't wear sample sizes.

Plus-size women are almost totally ignored by the fashion industry. Leslie Jones famously couldn't find a dress for her "Ghostbusters" premiere because designers refused to work with her.

Christian Siriano stepped in, custom-making this flawless red gown for Jones that she slayed in.

Despite being an Emmy-nominated actress, Chrissy Metz still finds it hard to find formal clothing for red carpet events.

Her stylist Chan Gaines shared how she masterfully envisioned two looks for Metz, especially in such a short time. 

Aidy Bryant also opened up about the challenges of being plus-size in Hollywood.

Luckily, Eloquii has created custom looks for her, but she wishes that plus-size shopping wasn't so difficult. 

"To me it just feels like a no-brainer that you would want to dress as many people as you could so you could represent your brand," Bryant said to People. 

And trust us, there are many, many more examples.

Needing help to get clothes in your size doesn't mean you're being a diva who will only wear free dresses.

Bloggers can call out shady advertising ethics — like influencers being paid to wear dresses on the red carpet, but never disclosing the relationship — WITHOUT dragging plus-size people speaking up about a very real issue. We're here for BryanBoy's uncompromising ethics, but this really missed the point.

We've reached out to Bryan for comment and clarification on these remarks, and will update when we hear back.

Hopefully these two ANTM alums can have a good talk about size discrimination in fashion.
