Should plus-sized clothing be more expensive?
Closed

Pyjama brand Peter Alexander has received some backlash from consumers after people noticed that many plus-sized styles on their website were more expensive than equivalent size 8-14 options.

According to the company, this disparity is because they need to use different patterns and produce smaller runs when it comes to plus-sized garments. Other brands in the US have also experienced similar criticism.

Do you think plus-sized clothes should be more expensive? Should smaller sizes increase in price so that there is parity across all sizes?

No, clothing of the same style no matter the size should all cost the same. If you price plus sized clothes higher in respect to the "smaller" equivalents you may as well price every size differently based on the amount of resources you use to make each product.

I think it's fair. Because they need to use extra materials for extra size in quantity as well as compared to smaller one. They can't increase price for small just because the costing for bigger will be high. Will be unfair for those who require smaller size.
