BOSTON (AP) -- For Sale: a lawn chair that "supports up to 800 pounds," and a toilet seat with a "12-hundred pound capacity."
The two items are among those featured in a new catalog offering specialty products for the growing population of obese people.
The "Living-X-L"' catalog is being launched this month by the parent company of Casual Male X-L, the nation's largest chain of men's plus-size clothing and apparel stores.
Casual Male chief executive David Levin says he believes the company has "created something that doesn't exist."
Meanwhile, a 300-pound Nevada woman says "Living X-L" could make it easier for her to find products that give her confidence.
Peggy Howell, who runs an online store with art depicting heavy people in a positive way, says specialty products are not always easy to find.
