One size fits all clothing have been very controversial in the last few years. Many feel as if it’s not inclusive and others aren’t bothered by it at all. The typical size of a one size fits all clothing is a medium. However, that leaves out many different shapes and sizes of women. The main issue of having clothing made to fit everyone is that it simply doesn’t! The only way that it would work is if every person has the same body type and of course that is not possible. People come in all different shapes and sizes like petite, plus size, big and tall, maternity, etc. Consumers are starting to prefer custom tailored clothing that fit their specific body type. The only things that are being accepted as a made for all item would be pieces such as jewelry and headgear.
Retailers are now straying away from making clothes that only fit one body type because they want to be more inclusive. In 2007, Brandy Melville, a U.K. retailer was under fire for only selling one size fits all clothing, which was labeled as a small/medium. This retailer is targeting teens and young women and decisions like this can be very detrimental to the way a young woman can view herself. When brands release collections they need to realize that being inclusive will benefit their company in so many ways than one and remember that every person isn’t the same!
