Most brands don’t upcharge women for existing at a size beyond 12, though some do, we previously found.
Because we believe women of all neoprene bodysuit sizes and astrological signs deserve to pay the same cashamazul for their OOTD’s, we took a walkabout through some popular shopping sites to compare prices across sizes.
Missuigded and Simply Be both charge the same exact price for similar items across he board. See below. Jeans in a size 6 and a size 28 at Simply Be are the same exact price. The Missguided lace-up bodysuit for smaller sizes, though it’s made from different fabrics, has the identical price tag as the similar bodysuit in the “plus” section. One’s ribbed and the other isn’t, but whatever size you wear, that $37.40 in their mainstream section = the same $37.40 in their “plus” section.
Forever 21’s prices are also equal across the board. Take for example these fire straight-size bikini bottoms. They have a slightly different construction than the “plus” version, but they do have the same style NAME, and encouragingly, the same exact price, $17.90.
Further up the ladder over to the higher end, J. Crew and Calvin Klein customers pay the same thing whether they’re a 16 or a 2.
Commendably H&M’s shows and commercials have been looking very inclusive. H&M which offers some of the best fast fashion for all sizes — prayer-answering trend-driven looks in their straight-size that look a lot like items in their lifesaving plus section, but we did find a slight price hike for the similar “plus” piece for some items. It’s extremely important to note that these items we compared are not identical pieces. For example, that swaggy cargo jacket on Ashley Graham is made of totally different materials than the slightly more affordable one in the “straight-size” section. But these pieces go by the same style names, and it is a notable price difference. Specifically, the “plus” items were $10 more across the board for some of the looks, RunwayRiot found. It all proves that brands might simplify things for themselves and for shoppers if they simply made everything for everyone.
$10 more for a long black cardigan
a tenski more for a cargo jacket…
$10 more for a pair of “plus” overalls…
Perhaps Osha Waiters said it best, they should make the exact same thing for everyone.
