hurt a friends feelings re weight

I'm 35 & really put my foot in my mouth the other day. A younger mutual GF was telling us both how she's lost 15lbs in the last few months & can now fit a size 4-5. We were joking about how we could almost wear the same sizes, as I'm a size 6.

I I realized my +size friend might be a bit uncomfortable with the direction of the conversation & tried to lighten things up for her by saying "you must really be wishing we'd shut up". she said no. without thinking, i said "you must be jealous". I just didn't think & it slipped out, I would never hurt her intentionally & now feel v bad as she's quite hurt. Any way I can fix this? I already sent her an apology via text letting her know I'd never hurt her on purpose, but think she's too mad to reply. Her natural reaction is to run when she's mad at the earliert chance & that's what she did...then she holds a grudge for awhile. Any info would be really appreciated, i know what i said was dumb & wish I could take it back!

WSB where are you shopping?? I'm in that plus size category and I have no problem finding fashionable close in stores or online.

I’m not sure I understand your question (or perhaps you’re confused about my comment).  I don’t think where *I’m* shopping is the issue and I don’t think that relates to the OP’s problem.  

But, let’s try this again: 

If a person goes online and googles “plus size clothing” they will come up with stores/shops/websites which have size 14 and above.  Examples would be:

Just My Size, Avenue, Woman Within.  Lane Bryant is a plus size store and they have sizes 14 to 28 (NOT size 6 ). If a person walks into a store – any store, even Walmart or Goodwill thrift shop – and looks in the Plus Size section, they will see the same thing – size 14 and above.  NOT size 6.  That was my point.
