I feel a rant coming on. I haven't gotten on my soapbox in a very long time. I know some of you may not be bothered by this, but it is important to me.
Today I receive several mini-catalogs of women's fashions in the mail. As I sat down to check them out, I saw that each and every one of them will offer their fashions in plus sizes, but at a price. They charge an additional $5 for plus size. THIS IS NOT FAIR.
I'm sure that if I questioned them, their answer would be that plus sizes require more material, even though they charge the same for size 2 as they do for size 14. Using that line of thinking, they should charge less for petite sizes, they use less material.
I have, on occasion, made my own clothes and I know that the material requirements to go from XL to 1X do not cost an additional $5.
These companies just wasted their money sending me their catalog. I REFUSE to pay the additional cost for their clothes. This is why I purchase most of my clothes from QVC. They charge the same whether you are a petite 2 or a tall 4X.
There, I feel much better getting this injustice off my chest.
