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?

Nope. There are many clothes shops that cater for plus size people and the price of those clothes are fairly reasonable.

It seems unfair but, if there’s a lot more material used and a different pattern has to be used, the company should be allowed to recuperate the extra costs.

It's not fair, but when you think of all the extra cloth that has gone into making very large garments, they would cost companies more to produce.

I think all garments of the same style should have the same price regardless of the size.

Seeing as childrens smaller clothing is the same price as adults clothing, then NO is the answer!

Plus size garments shouldn't be more expensive, bigger runs should be made
