Someone discovered that the same dress sold by Target was “Dark Heather grey” in normal sizes, but “manatee grey” in plus-sizes.

What a way to (unintentionally, apparently) offend your customers.

Yes. If I buy that dress I wish to buy a product that is not offensive to my body size.

Thank you Target.

Hopefully you won’t be buying any dress Peter.  But when I saw this I was laughing out loud because, frankly, it IS hilarious!  Oh, and I’m at the bottom of plus sizing depending on the brand I think.

I would imagine you aren’t really interested in the dress Peter.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

Seen on a tshirt - “If life gives you melons you may be dyslexic”

When life hands you lemons make apple juice. Then laugh while life tries to figure out how you did it.

It’s what’s underneath that counts.
