I went to your store today as I often do to shop for some new plus size tops and “tall” plus sized jeans.
When I asked the sales associate to direct me where you’re plus size tall jeans were she stated that you no longer carry them. My mouth dropped.
I am VERY disappointed in Reitmans right now. I have been a great customer to your store and have bought plus sized tall line jeans and slacks from your store for the last few years. I loved the fact I could count on you. Now I sadly can’t.
I’m angry and hurt that Reitmans, a store that is suppose to be for all women of all sizes no longer is thinking about women like me. I have a suspicion that perhaps it is simply because tall plus sized pants may not be as money making as normal sized pants. This saddens me that money always seems to come first.
For a woman of 5’11” it is difficult enough to find jeans that are long enough. Add the fact that I am now a plus sized girl (wearing size 18), it has become even harder. Shopping for plus sized clothing is bad enough for a number of reasons, add the fact I now can’t even buy the pants I want, makes my shopping experience even worse.
Please bring back your tall pants plus sized line. Reconsider! We the tall fat girls need stores like yours to step up and take the lead on providing all women, tall, short, large and skinny clothing that is reasonably priced, fits well and it actually stylish.
I do not want to wear Grandma style jeans when I am only 30 years old as really those other stores, either are too pricy or have no style. Please, please, please bring back your jeans and other plus sized tall pants. I really don’t want to start having to wear only underwear when I go out!
