    Retailers start to increase the number of plus-size lines as higher demand in the market pushes it to the point that revenue might make up for the extra costs for designs and materials. Hot Topic (HOTT -2.7%) with its Torrid brand has positioned itself as one of the fashion leaders in the sub-sector with a more independent and bold approach led by CEO Lisa Harper, while Fifth & Pacific (FNP -0.5%) and Hennes & Mauritz (HMRZF.PK, HNNMY.PK) are also making a push.

    A profit warning from Swedish clothing seller Hennes & Mauritz (HMRZF.PK, HNNMY.PK) appears to have crossed the pond to taint select retail names in the U.S. Foreign exchange headaches and unseasonably warm weather contributed to a 4% decline in H&M's same-store sales after analysts had called for a gain, raising some questions on the sector only a week after Burberry's own warning rattled luxury names. Feeling the heat: NWY -2.7%, CBK -2.2%, BODY -1.6%, BONT -1.8%, SKS -2.5%.
