Re: Why do XXS and 5 x. Pay the same price for clothing?

I just bought leggings online at another retailer and paid twice as much for the size small as I did for the medium and large sizes that I ordered! (Kohl's online) 

 

I thought it was a mistake, but it wasn't!

 

It is what it is.

I applaud companies that want to include ALL sizes and shapes.  It's about time in my book.

Marking up larger sizes is just a money making scheme IMO.  Frankly it doesn't cost much more to use another yard of material.  Good grief!!

@kitpach   Well, the same thing can be said about bed sheets.  Why should a twin bed and king size sheet be the same price??  The vendor's choice.

Some retailers still do charge more for larger sizes.  Including 'talls'.

@kaydee50  I was about to post the same thing. I remember years ago when they charged different prices for sheets. I always wished I had a twin size bed because of the price of the sheets. Now everything is priced the same.

Some retailers do charge more for larger adult sized clothing.  QVC does not.

I am on the little end and the only price break I have seen is when I get stuff from the kid's section.

 

Would love a price break on clothes, but this just tells us that the fabric must be a very small component of price.

First off, congratulations on your weight loss and maintaining it! But I have to disagree with your view of sizing and cost. Using your logic, a size 4 should pay more than a 2, a 6 should pay more than a 4 and so on. A size 7 shoe should be more than a 6, an 8 should be more than a 7 and so on. What about height? Should regulars pay more than petites, talls more than regulars and so on? Not flaming, just saying. Take care.
