She Cries In The Fitting Room Seeing Herself.
Story by Callie Goodwin
Dear Old Navy,
You don’t know me, but I know you well. I’ve always loved your cute clothes and affordable prices. I’ve been a fluffy person my entire life, so I found it hard to shop your store. But a few weeks ago, you put out a notice that all of your clothes would now be offered from sizes 0-4x at the same in price. I was shocked and excited. I’ve never bern able to walk into a store and shop from any rack. I always have to find the plus size section which is usual a rack or 2 if I’m lucky.
Today I went into your store for the first time in years and found clothes that fit me. I grabbed shirts for $18 that would usually run $55-$70 at plus size stores and shorts that cost 1/4 of what I usually pay.
When I went to the fitting room, I cried for a few minutes at how this was the easiest shopping trip I had in a long time. I walked out of your store with a bag of goodies including several work shirts, t-shirts, and the cutest & comfiest workout shorts I have ever worn (& they were less than half the cost of the stores I usually shop at!)
Old Navy- Thank you for making cute & affordable clothes that fit all people. Thank you for not charging extra for extended sizes. Thank you for leading the change.
A grateful fluffy human.
