    Default Another retailer refuses to sell to fat people

    Ok this isn't exactly "fat" .....Lululemon won't sell anything above a size 12...but along with Abercrombie, they are getting some heat from how they treat their larger customers

    don't exactly know how I feel about this.....I don't want to see big boned women in see thru yoga pants in line at the post office any more than anyone else,

    but should it be an issue at all with who a retailer decides is their target market?

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    Whatever.

    This just creates an opportunity for other companies to fill that void. If women could just let go of that "designer" mentality then they will find what they're looking for. Having said that, companies and society don't even try to hide fat discrimination anymore.

    It is more publicly acceptable in today's society to be an alcoholic than it is to be fat.

    A company is putting out a product. If they don't have what you want, then go someplace else.

    Lululemon makes technical athletic clothes for yoga, running, working out, and most other sweaty pursuits

    Maybe I'm daft, but from the companies description above, maybe... just maybe... there just isn't very much demand for their product by plus sized woman. Maybe.

    Oh! and how come you never see a skinny lady protesting because she can't find her size at Lane Bryant?

    They can sell whatever sizes they want to. It seems to be working for them. They do not have a monopoly on fitness wear, so there's really nothing to complain about here.
