Recently, I was given a gift card for Land’s End, a store I was unfamiliar with, but I figured they would have a dress or tights that I would like. As I was scrolling through the sales selection online, I start to notice every time I click on my size (a “regular” according to them), the price doubles. I am 5 foot 9 with an average build so I mostly buy clothes sized medium and large. I decide to investigate a little more and I saw a petite dress that is advertised for $9.50. As I click on the plus size price for this dress, it states that it’s $44.99. You’re telling me that a plus size dress calls for almost 5 times as much than a petite? Not a baby version but a few dress sizes apart. I went through this site and without fail the “regular” and plus size prices were doubled, tripled and so forth.
If you don’t believe me, see for yourself.
Land’s End is not the only company charging unreasonable prices for larger sized clothing. Adding a few extra dollars for materials is understandable but it should not requires those who wear them to pay 5 times as much.
Has anyone else noticed this immoral practice in other brands? Is there a logical reason for this?
