The clothing hanging up in the stores are ridiculous. Who is the buyer of the mess?
Come on, get a clue Charming, hire people who know how to actually dress women, not preteens.

Alfred Dunner and Sag Harbor are probably right up your alley.

I always say dressbarn clothes are Jetsons meets Beverly Hillbillies meets Golden Girls. You could not nightmare-up a more horrid mix of clothes - especially on the plus size ladies. What a mess. When I worked for Dress Barn our district manager actually wanted us to contact funeral homes for business - like who would be caught dead in dress barn clothes???? Hysterical.

Lane Bryant has a HUGE advantage on other plus-sized retailers. The clothing is fashionable, affordiable, and cut perfectly for a woman's figure!

maribeth, I think you have some serious issues. This post isn't even about dressbarn. If you go back to previous dressbarn posts you continue to rant and rave about how much you hate them and spill the same complaints over and over again. Enough already. We get it. You don't like dressbarn and hated working for them. Stop posting about it!
