One size doesn’t fit all – Should local boutiques offer a full range of sizes?

It is no secret that high street shops use petite models to display their latest seasonal clothing ranges. Since 2010, clothing brands have started using a lot more plus-size models and using them in advertisements. Larger chains such as H&M are starting to use plus-size models and produce larger clothing items, but why are local boutiques not using a diverse range of sizes?

Voted the number one independent women’s clothing boutique in Cheltenham by SoGlos, Olive Clothing who have over 50k Instagram followers, only stock up to a 14 which they class as large.

But why is it that boutiques in comparison to majority of high street stores do not stock the average women’s size?

“I feel embarrassed when shopping in town because I hate picking up my clothing size. Smaller shops don’t usually stock my size and I don’t like shopping online because I feel like bigger people need to try things on more than smaller people as it is harder for things to fit.” says Susan Morgan, a size 20 woman.

High street brands such as H&M have also sparked an outrage by releasing an advertisement including a ‘wobbly’ and larger woman at the beginning walking around in her underwear, but not actually releasing a plus-size range in their stores, making it only available online.

With many women’s sizes ranging from 4-24, shops should stock for larger sizes, making it suitable for a much more diverse group of people.

Hopefully, local boutiques will release pieces of clothing to a broader range of people, including the size 14 plus to suit more females.

  4. I oversee a vape store web directory and we have had a listing from a vape store in the United States that likewise markets CBD product lines. A Month later, PayPal has contacted use to claim that our account has been limited and have asked us to take away PayPal as a payment solution from our vape shop directory site. We do not sell CBD items such as CBD oil. We solely provide web marketing services to CBD companies. I have checked out Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Major Health and wellness Retail store and if you take a good peek, you will see that they supply a comparatively wide-ranging range of CBD goods, primarily CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a payment solution. It seems that PayPal is employing double standards to many different companies. As a result of this limitation, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related internet site. This has restrained my payment options and currently, I am greatly contingent on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have sought advice from a barrister from a Magic Circle law office in The city of london and they said that what PayPal is doing is completely against the law and inequitable as it should be applying a systematic criterion to all companies. I am yet to seek advice from an additional attorney from a US law practice in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the USA. For the time being, I would be very appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could offer me with different payment processors/merchants that work with CBD firms.
