Shopping As A Plus Sized Woman

Posted on March 16, 2021 at 3:04 pm

Shopping for anyone can be a daunting process, with us each coming across our own issues when shopping for new clothes. One group of people who come across the most complications are plus-sized women. Today, we are going to share with you what some of the most common issues are for plus-sized women when shopping for clothes.

Plus-sized and Tall
For some reason, shops across the world have this misconception that plus-sized also means that the woman is tall. Meaning not only are the clothes being made wider to fit their curvy bodies, but they are also being made longer. This is not the case, not every plus-sized woman is taller. This misconception is making it difficult for women to buy clothes to fit their bodies.

Fabric Choices
Another common issue in the plus-sized shopping world is fabric choices. Production companies think it is acceptable to use cheaper material to make plus-sized clothing yet still charge the same prices. We understand that you are using more fabric, but quality does still matter. Plus-sized clothing should be made from the material of the same quality, giving everyone equal opportunities with clothing.

No Mannequins?
Another issue that is faced in the plus-sized shopping world is that there are no mannequins. How this is possible, nobody truly knows. Plus-sized women still want to see what the clothes would look like on a body of a similar size and style to theirs. Not the general mannequins used in clothing stores. Introducing plus-sized mannequins may even boost sales of plus-size clothing as women will be less afraid of purchasing after seeing it on somebody else.

The year is 2021, and these issues are still occurring in the shopping industry. We are all learning to love the bodies we were given, but surely it is time for plus-sized women to be treated with the same respect as every other shopper out there.
