Oh Good. My Size Dress Comes In “Manatee Gray” From Target.

This is absolutely for real—I checked it on Target.com myself.

This Mossimo Womens Kimono Maxi Dress available online online at Target.com is available in the following arbitrary sizes and colors:

  • Regular sizes (X-Small to XX Large) comes in Dark Heather Gray.
  • Plus sizes (1 to 4) comes in Manatee Gray.

All of the other colors are named the same no matter the size, yet when it comes to getting your arbitrarily numbered plus-size maxi dress, you can get it in Manatee Gray.

I just wish I could get a purple plus-size maxi dress in Grimace Purple.

At least Target has admitted their wrongdoing and has replied to @suZen saying they’re fixing it ASAP. Yet, at this time, 10:00pm EST, nearly 24 hours after it came to their attention, the Manatee Gray color is still available for purchase.

Out of curiosity since when does Plus size cost LESS than Misses sizes? Any other stores charge 2 to 10 dollars more for Plus sizes than the Misses sizes so why is target “Targeting” the reversal? Sounds like someone isn’t doing there job………..again.

On the “Plus” side……..sorry…….no matter which size it is, still looks like prison uniforms for the geriatric wing.

Ooooh you could come up with a line of plus-sized colors with crayons. Like when Bic came out with those ladies only pens and it went so well.

What’s next? Pool table green? Rather than spots, whale shark? It’s amazing how often people and companies forego using their brains.

Glad Target corrected this, but I am laughing out loud to the comments posted to this Blog post. Too funny. You guys are great! Thanks for the chuckle. 🙂

I think I peed a little reading this. Grimace Purple happens to be my favorite color, oddly enough.
