Dundee woman s large size clothing campaign



A Dundee woman has introduced a project to motivate more outlet store to offer clothes for large size women.


Jody Mckenzie took matters into her own hands after becoming frustrated at the absence of high street stores offering size 16 clothes and above.


Instead of sit idly and grumble, Jody has actually introduced an online petition in an attempt to drum up support for her cause.


The petition has actually not gone viral as of yet, Jody hopes her efforts result in more shops equipping clothes for plus size women.


She stated: There are currently numerous cities that do not have a large size store to cater for all sizes and shapes, consisting of Dundee.


We have a couple of little racks of minimal stock in plus size clothes in a New Look outlet, however that doesn’t constantly stock the appropriate sizes and is hard to find something appropriate and comfortable.


It is aggravating because since Evans closed there’s no place to actually go.


Jody feels having more shops provide plus sized clothing would not just make it simpler for local women to discover clothes, however likewise allow them to feel better about themselves.


Her petition will eventually be sent out to successful online outlet Yours Clothing, who cater for plus size women.


Jody stated: Myself and many others are all behind having a plus sized outlet here in Dundee.


It would simply make life much easier for the neighborhoods in Dundee, Angus and surrounding areas.


Having a big outlet like Yours Clothing would not just be beneficial to myself, friends and family but the majority of the general public would have an option to feel equivalent, to be able to go in town and find something like any non plus sized person.


It suggests they might do so without needing to feel uneasy or spend hours not having the ability to get a single thing because most stores wear t stock the correct sizes.


It’s hard enough being overweight without struggling to discover something to use.


A spokesperson for Yours Clothing validated the organization was motivated by Jody s efforts and exposed they would think about opening an outlet in Dundee in the future.
