A popular clothing brand is under fire due to higher prices for bigger size clothes. People are wondering if they are charging a "fat tax".
New Look, a British fast-fashion retailer with locations around the world, is facing criticism on social media after Twitter user Sarah Doherty noticed that a plus-sized jacket at the store costs nearly twice as much as a similar, straight-sized jacket.
She posted side-by-side photos of two gray bomber jackets to demonstrate the significant difference in cost: the smaller jacket costs about $39, while the plus-size one rings in, full price, at about $72.
New Look officially has made no comment on why this is. Their social media states that the larger version of their clothing contains an extra fabric that the smaller version does not have. We aren't too sure if they are being honest about this or not.. What do you think?
