The Perfect Fit For Every Body? Shame On You, NIKE!!

I was at Dillards the other day and I saw this display.

Shame on Nike at Dillards from Starling Fitness

I needed some workout clothes, so I wandered over there to see what they had. Unfortunately, the “Large” size that they had couldn’t have been bigger than a size 12. Shame on you, Nike!

I have had this problem with them before and talked about it here:

Can you believe this is the XL?Back then, I said:

The fact that they don’t carry a size for me when I’m fifty pounds lighter, just tells me that they aren’t an athletic clothing company. They’re a fashion clothing company just like Kenneth Cole. They don’t want “fatties” like me wearing their clothes and giving them a bad name.

I wrote that entry in 2006. It’s SEVEN years later and they are STILL making the same mistakes. I was going to write an entry about the new Nike App called Nike+ Move that would turn your iPhone 5S into a device that monitors your every move like a FitBit, ActiveLink or Fuelband, but I don’t even want to give them a link now.

In the end, we left Dillards and went to Forever 21. They had plenty of exercise clothes to fit me.

    I found the same thing at Kohl’s – a whole section of workout clothes, nothing in my size. I complained – I told the manager they need to stock ‘big girl’ sizes – we big girls are the ones who need to work out!
