I wanted to share this here and get some feedback to see if it would abate my annoyance or reassuree I’m not being unreasonable.
I’ve just been on the Lady Vintage instagram when I saw this:
What’s happening here is that due to a high demand the Lyra dress from the Lady Voluptous range (Lady Vintage’s plus size range) is now being offered to Lady Vintage customers in their ‘straight sizes’.
Needless to say I’m pissed off.
Before I go any further I want to make it very clear that this isn’t an ‘us vs them’ situation and I’m not wanting to ‘keep’ this for us fatties but I can’t count the number of times I’ve commented on brands social media begging them to do them in larger sizes, and it NEVER happens. The fact that Lady Vintage did a seperate line with unique dresses shows that fat customers aren’t able to wear their lines.
I find it baffling that Lady Vintage seemingly stop certain dresses at a 20, others at a 24, then make a wholly seperate line just for 16+.
If you are willing to make plus size lines smaller then you should be making smaller lines for bigger customers.
Your straight sized customers already have a larger choice compared to us and tet you offer them even more?
What am I missing here? Surely with the success of the Lady Voluptuous line they can see that the need is there.
I love this brand. But there have been countless times when I’ve had an email from them declaring a new dress range, only to click the link and see they stop at a 20.
Why are we not opening up the whole lot to EVERYONE?
