Clothing brand criticized for selling body positivity shirt with limited sizing

One of Australia’s largest clothing retailers was slammed for selling a body positivity shirt with limited sizing. A Facebook user called Cotton On out for selling a t-shirt in sizes extra-small to extra-large, without accommodating those who required a larger fit. The shirt features two open palms and a floral design, along with a message that reads, “Beautiful isn’t a size”. Marsh said she had really wanted to purchase the shirt because of its positive message. But the woman was, unfortunately, unable to make a purchase. Marsh’s post, which she shared on her personal and the company’s Facebook pages, spurred other customers to chime in and offer words of support. According to Marsh, a Cotton On customer support representative later replied to her complaint. “While we do try to cater for all different body shapes ... we’re very sorry to hear that you haven’t been able to find what you need,” they wrote. The response, however, didn’t sit well with Marsh. “This shirt was [an] opportunity to be inclusive ... it now comes off as a cheap attempt at cashing in on the body positivity movement,” she wrote
