We are at a turning point I believe. The media is get friendlier with plus size bodies and plus size active wear is starting to be carried in stores and most plus sized stores have an active wear section.
If you want black yoga wear you are set.
But all I really really want is a pair of hiking and or climbing pants. They exist in lovely arrangement of colours, lengths and come with all the pockets and stretch you would need, as long as you don't exceed about a size 1`4.
I don't always want to be in tights and yoga pants. And I don't always want to wear black.
But here the problem lies for me, some companies like Columbia, are offering closer to what I want and so I think I need to both purchase them and promote the purchase of them and also promote everyone who buys them to leave a review asking for more.
The only way retailers are going to get the point is from hearing from us and showing our buying power. If we don't buy what they are already offering and give feedback it may be construed that there is no market rather than they just don't yet carry what we want to buy.
So what to do?
Ask for more.
there are facts and then there are emotions. This is as honest as I can be about my struggles and triumphs.
