Should plus-sized clothing be more expensive?
Closed

Pyjama brand Peter Alexander has received some backlash from consumers after people noticed that many plus-sized styles on their website were more expensive than equivalent size 8-14 options.

According to the company, this disparity is because they need to use different patterns and produce smaller runs when it comes to plus-sized garments. Other brands in the US have also experienced similar criticism.

Do you think plus-sized clothes should be more expensive? Should smaller sizes increase in price so that there is parity across all sizes?

Plus size clothing does not necessarily mean that a person is 'overweight' - most plus sizes start at size 16 plus and there are many people who are fit and healthy but are large in size and stature, the norm these days is that we are producing a larger size population and if you look at a vast majority of shops the Plus Size label is now much more prevalant than some years back, most reputable manufactures and stores do not charge any extra for Plus Size, as it is now big money to them,so NO we should not pay any extra if you are an 8 or 16 plus.

No, I don’t think it should. But then we don’t pay the same price for baby clothing compare to the adult clothing. So maybe a little difference is acceptable to cover up the cost of using extra materials.

Not sure one can argue that more matirials are used. But then those who buy them needs to pay extra.. Wow that's not easy.

Making plus size clothes more expensive simply means life harder for people who wear it and also it seems it may make plus size people feel that they are not part of mainstream consumers

No. You pay for the designer (across all sizes) not the patterns or amount of fabric. When cutting fabric you have the same pattern pieces per garment within the width of the cloth. Size makes zero difference.
