It's called the Amazon Warrior, and it features three buns (red, yellow and blue, with the top one dotted with cheese stars - a nod to Linda Evans's costume in the 1975 TV series), two beef patties, pineapple, lettuce, tomato, pickle, and onions. Oh, and more cheese, because is a cheeseburger even a cheeseburger if it isn't smothered with the stuff? Let's be real.

Two designers have recently announced plans for plus-size, or wide-fit, collections of rings, necklaces, bracelets and more.

"It's one of those things people don't even realize is needed unless you're the one needing it," Alex Waldman, co-founder of the clothing company Universal Standard, told TODAY Style.

"A lot of plus-size women can only fit rings on their pinkie fingers," she continued. "And sometimes, we want to wear something on another finger."

Waldman, whose company allows customers to exchange clothing for another size for up to a year after purchase, is well aware of how difficult it can be to shop for jewelry as a plus-size woman.

"It's not just fit — it's scale," she said. "Even if you can get (the necklace) around your neck, it's not going to sit in the place it's meant to sit. Because you have a bigger bust or a bigger neck. A choker literally becomes a choker. Or, you're wearing a pendant that falls several inches short of where it's meant to fall."

Watches & Jewelry . It ' s been true for some time that Americans are getting larger and, by all indications, this isn't likely to change. There's really no such thing as plus - sized . Representation is vitally important.

We want women above size 10 to feel like they have options, like things are getting better all the time ," Universal Standard' s co-founder and CCO In a society where the average-sized female is considered " plus size ," we're just happy that she might be able to finally find some quality jewelry now, too.

"We, as plus-size women, want the jewelry to fit like it was meant for us," Tipton told TODAY Style. "Not like, OK, we're just going to add a couple links here to make it fit wider necks. I want jewelry that complements us."

Her new collection includes statement pieces such as lace-and-ribbon chokers and bangle sets, and they're made with the proportions of plus-size women in mind.

"I've been that person who bought regular-size chokers and had to put ribbon in the back, or a safety pin (to make it larger)," Tipton said.

That's exactly what she and Waldman want plus-size women to avoid with their jewelry. And they're not alone: A quick search online reveals other stores are also selling plus-size jewelry, including Lane Bryant and ASOS, for example. It's about time, the designers said.

"The need has always been there," Waldman said. "But you start with the most essential — clothing — and then you work toward the more detailed things like jewelry."

Carrie Bradshaw Would Have Hated This Popular Engagement Ring .
Yes, a diamond may be forever — but engagement rings trends are not. In fact, while what we’ve considered the norm for the symbols of our unions has held steady for many years, every now and then a new style reaches peak popularity and keeps things interesting. Who knew that a black diamond would become the go-to for non-traditional brides? Well, besides Carrie Bradshaw, who, was gifted one from Big after her mishap with her ex, Aidan Shaw, in Abu Dhabi during that dreadful (but beautiful) encounter in Sex and the City 2.
