This week I went to a blogger spring preview at Athleta on Newbury Street. I love their colorful clothes. It makes me smile. I generally work out in ill fitting t-shirts and yoga pants that sometimes stay up and sometimes and sometimes, they fall down (just like my jeans even though they are not really loose) and require readjustment.
So, on a cold windy night, I looked at pretty clothes and really wished I could try something (anything) but I did take pictures of clothing I liked.
I love their clothes. They sell plus sizes on line but not in their stores. It is like they want my money but just do not come into our stores. It is a definite trend in retail with stores like Old Navy doing it.
It makes me sad. They offer plus sizes in 1x and 2x. I am sure they could fit them on the shelves. I will definitely order something online but I definitely prefer to try things on, feel them and seeing how they look on me.
I may be overweight but I do not sit around all day. I work out. I wear clothing while working out and would love to be stylish. I wish stores would listen.
