Actually, my impression is that it's plenty of girls on this board who would be able to shop there. I know that a lot of the girls that post on the clothing/fashion board are in the size range 18/20 and 22/24Me either. But then, I doubt that many here at Dimensions would be able to shop there.
I agree.I understand what you're saying (Fashion Bug has that kind of range of size, too, though they go even bigger), but the whole "everyone" statement just, for me, harkens back to the One Size Fits All lie.

I guess it's not the majority but it could be useful to some. I would love to hear more about this shop.
Me either. But then, I doubt that many here at Dimensions would be able to shop there.
Don't presume to know what I was thinking Susie.I agree.
That wasen't maybe the best way to put it.
(though I doubt she ment it that way)
Im not presuming anything, I just felt that you all was sort of attacking her for not coming up with a better store option or whatever.Don't presume to know what I was thinking Susie.
I guess thats differs from store to store...Like Tina stated the one store for everyone mentality doesn't work well. While they may carry some things in sizes 16-24, keep in mind that they cater to the size 4-14. Their dressing rooms will likely be smaller the ailes narrower, and the sales help not plus sized. That isn't how I would choose to shop but then to each his own.
I get that, but it should be allowed to post about stores as Marianne as well. The more the merrier imo.And while yes there are a plenty of 18-24 size women here, there are also a lot of size 26 and above that post here, and they are complete excluded at the store.
I agree. I dont like that mentality either. But at the same time I think its nice to be able to shop in the same store as most of your other friends do. Most of my friends are definetely skinny minniesIncluding a few plus sizes into a regular clothing stores just perpetuates the mentality that it's OK to be fat, but not too fat. So, while it's nice that Marianne's has thrown us fat girls a bone, I'll stick to the stores that truly cater to women my size. I would rather give my money to someone who really "gets it".
No... everyone jumped at the suggestion that this was a store for "everyone" when clearly it excluded MANY of us here. There have been loads of threads about designers/manufacturers who only go up to size 24 here that were not met with any hostility whatsoever (longing actually on my part). That a store should carry sizes 4-24 is no big deal at all. Every quality department store has been doing that forever.Im not presuming anything, I just felt that you all was sort of attacking her for not coming up with a better store option or whatever.
Now see, maybe I'm different than ladies here, but I don't necessarily want to wear what the "skinny people" do. It isn't necessarily flattering on my body, and quite honestly a lot of the trendy clothes I think are ridiculous and well, skinny people shouldn't be wearing them either.I've had a clothing addiction for yrs lol. That sounds neat sizes 4-24 but is everything in the plus as well as skinny or do they just have a seperate plus section. & Where are they located? Just wondering. A lot of the places that carry plus as well as skinny have different styles in the plus than they do in the skinny & we want to wear what the skinny people do. I may be fat but I deserve fashion & style too...
I'll answer the actual question first...No, I haven't shopped there but it's nice to know some stores are carrying bigger sizes. I'll have to keep my eye out for them.Has anyone tried this store? I don't know if it's new, but it's new to me.
The sign said "Sizes 4 - 24".
So, they've got clothes for everyone.
