Carry Plus-Size Clothing in Stores Again.

Over the past few years I have seen stores such as Old Navy, H&M, and Target remove their plus -size lines or only offer their clothing to be purchased online. This is not cost effective for the consumer as they have to pay shipping on top of the price for the clothing they want to purchase. Offering plus-size clothing in stores is important because currently the CDC estimates that 35.7% of adults are obese; this shows that over one third of Americans are overweight. If you look at a map outlining areas that have higher obesity rates and a map that shows the poverty rates; it is plain to see that lower income groups are most often overweight. With this in mind you can see how it is important for stores like Target to carry plus size clothing. This is because Target offers lower prices on clothing while not sacrificing style; something that is important to adolescents and adults a like. They currently only offer a majority of their plus size clothing online which means you have to pay shipping. For lower income families and individuals paying a shipping price may not be an option!

Please sign this petition to urge Target to put their plus-size line back in stores!

      Many people have been saying to me "but my Target still carries plus-size clothing" here's the deal: Target's website currently states that all of their plus size clothing is offered "exclusively online." This is why so many of us are only seeing 1-3 racks of plus-size clothing in the store. Target is eventually going to pull the plus-size line from their stores. By signing this petition you will help deter this from happening (if it hasn't already happened to you). Please get your friends and families to sign this petition. Thank you!

      Sometimes we do not have control over our size when it comes to illness. You used to carry nice plus-size fashion, now you carry crap. You are discriminating to all women who weight more than 105 pounds.

      Equality for fashion in reference to size is continuing to emerge today, and should continue for the betterment of society.
