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.
