Low Cost Retailers Leading The Way

For anyone who struggles to find clothes to fit their body shape, it is easy to appreciate the importance of a low priced high street retailer introducing their particular size.  But whilst retailers bringing out a range of clothes for plus size women gets huge exposure, it is rarely highlighted when a range of clothes to fit smaller women is introduced.  This may be in part due to an under-appreciation of the difficulty buying clothes presents when you don’t quite fit into a size 8.  Or it may be that society doesn’t feel sympathy for women who struggle with their weight, when it is a struggle to put on weight that is the problem.

Regardless of the reasoning, it is great to see that Penney’s in Ireland have now launched a core set of items in a size 6.  As a leading retailer in Ireland, offering fashions to suit the modest budget, the significance of this for smaller women is huge.  To date, Dunnes Stores, another leading Irish retailer in the same bracket, has failed to supply clothes to fit the more meagre figured women, but perhaps this move by Penney’s might spur them to follow suit.

Whilst UK retailers do cater better to this market, with Topshop, Miss Selfridges and River Island all stocking clothes in a size 6, they still have a way to go to fully recognise the need of smaller women.  Evans, for example, is a chain of stores stocking clothes aimed solely at the fuller figured woman.  No similar store for petite women exists to date.  And some retailers fail to cater to this market whatsoever.  Oasis and Monsoon, for example, are slow on the uptake and leave a lot to be desired when it comes to fulfilling the needs of our petite population.

When it comes to maternity clothes for petite women, the market almost completely fails to cater to their needs whatsoever.  There are many women who maintain their same dress size when expecting a baby, and merely have the baby bump, but retailers fail to acknowledge this, stocking maternity clothes in sizes 8 – 16 and upwards only.  So for the nine months of pregnancy, petite women are forced to buy maternity clothes in need of alteration, or choose normal clothes in a bigger size than they would normally choose.  But the latter option will result in a poor fit around other body parts, and also, in dresses that are shorter at the front than they should be.

So, well done to Penney’s for finally coming up with an exciting new addition to their range and here’s hoping that other retailers will take heed of Penney’s lead and follow suit soon.  There is a niche market of women out there who are waiting with bated breath for further advancements in this area.
