Just in time for Christmas, actress Melissa McCarthy has launched her retail website MelissaMcCarthy.com. The “Mike and Molly” actress will offer stylish designs from her MM collection, which also caters to women of plus size.

"I am a big fan of shopping online," said McCarthy at the site's launch celebration, Women’s Wear Daily reports. "I love trying something on in the comfort of my own home, and the easy return policy is a lifesaver."

The actress, who studied fashion design at FIT in New York City, said she is excited to interact with customers directly with the help of her website. "I'm excited to have a way to speak directly with my customer and offer her pieces that are not available at other retail sites.”

“I hope to create a place where we can all celebrate fashion and just how amazing women truly are!" she added.

The 45-year-old also shared the news with her fans on her Instagram account. “I can't believe I have my own store!! MelissaMcCarthy.com Have fun shopping!! Happy Holidays!!! Xoxo Melissa,” she captioned the photo, which shows her standing atop a computer that displays her website's homepage.

McCarthy has a huge collection, ranging from woven blouses, denim, t-shirts, dresses, activewear and sweaters. McCarthy's collection is available in sizes 4 to 28. “I think most women in the US are a 14. I think like 72 per cent of women are a 14,” McCarthy said in a previous interview.

She also appeared in the advertisement campaign of her holiday collection called Seven 7 and stunned everyone with her amazing weight loss. The actress has reportedly shed 20 kgs of weight and said the secret to her weight loss is that she stopped thinking about it.

“I truly stopped worrying about it,” she said about her weight loss in a previous interview. “I stopped over-analysing, over-thinking, overdoing anything."
