Its not wrong. They are not a speciality dress store. They are a retail chain store. They are only going to carry what sizes sell. Their goal is to make money. Not serve to everyone needs. Its no cost efficient for them to carry all sizes cuz they'd never sell.
I don't think it's wrong since they've marked it clearly outside. Loads of other places sell slim sizes i'm sure, you might just need to go travel a little further. Is there city centre or large shopping mall nearby?
it's a shop and their goal is to sell as much as possible. if they think they can do more money this way... then that's their good right to do so. every shop has a target audience they try to address and for this one skinny people are not part of it. this one is clearly advertising with it... so just go to a another one. it's not like this is the only store in the US who sells dresses.
Demand and supply rules this world. Most of their sales must have been happening within that range. And because of space problems and due to lack of sales , they may not want to keep other products. They are not discriminating. But they are trying to increase their business profitability by only trying to offer what they can sell well. You can go to some other shop. Market is full of competitors. How do skinny models get to buy good fitting clothes? Because there are many places where such clothes are available.
I don't think its wrong because: 1. They marked it at the front, it would be wrong if they enticed you in and they don't have your size and it makes you feel bad 2. There's probably more and more stores (online and in the mall) that offer a broader range of sizes so there is choice for the ones that are outside the usual range So, I don't really think its wrong but they could make an effort to have at least a small section for other sizes outside the usual range (they would get more sales out of it too hahah)
you're a model or at least a former model, if i remember, right? right?
well, not all stores cater to all sizes. that's just how they roll
Yeah, I mean 24 is a big-ass dress size, right? You would think they would carry a few of the smaller sizes. They must be trying to cater to the average person, who is significantly overweight. It kind of sucks, though, that you're effectively being punished for taking good care of yourself.
It's okay because not enough by the small sizes
It's they're shop, they're allowed to sell what the want tbh.
They don't have sizes above 24 either so no it's not discriminating. It's practical business only inventory what will sell the fastest. 6 months max and the dress is out of style anyway and committed to the clearance racks. There are specialty shops that specialize in petites and shops that specialize in plus sizes.
It is annoying at times when you wear a size 00-0-2 that you're limited however not a lot of stores carry sizes above 18-20 so bigger people are more limited than us on the bigger side so I don't think it's fair to get offended by it when they are completely fine.
How the hell is this discrimination? They're a privately owned store, they can carry whatever sizes they want. We wouldn't call it discrimination if a bakery didn't want to carry strawberry pies, would we? If it bothers you, shop elsewhere.
Not all brand can carry all size (money problem, not enough people would buy it, etc..). In my country it's the other ways around in general brand don't sell clothes bigger than a L. You should just find another brand.
I thinks it's totally fine, there are MILLIONS of stores that carry all the way to 00. Plus, I think dress barn caters more to adult mature women. Try a place that caters more towards young adults and teens like Macy's, Nordstrom, forever21, or TJmax.
Lmao!!! Seriously? You are mad because a store that typically only sells to women who are "heavier" don't sell size 00? Go to any store that sells clothes for everyone. Go to any mall Im sure you will find a store with your size. FYI ladies Dress Barn sells for women with curves, if you are a size 00 or what not go elsewhere (really a lot of people sell those sizes)
