Nordstrom made headlines for choosing to start grouping its plus-size and petite clothes in one place as opposed to splitting them up. This is amazing, y'all! No more having to take a shady escalator to find cute tops in a size 18! Holla!
The reason behind the new push for inclusivity is reportedly none other than Khloe Kardashian.
Kardashian recently signed a deal with Nordstrom to feature the Good American denim line, on the condition that the department store purchase every size, and feature all the sizes together. Damn, girl.
While this is a small step for total inclusivity, it's still a major leap for the retailer.
"We don't believe petite and plus should be categorized—they're just sizes," Tricia Smith, EVP of women's clothing at Nordstrom, told Glamour. "I think the fashion industry in general needs to commit itself to inclusivity, and I strongly believe it’s about time, to be honest. And hopefully, all brands and retailers will learn to pay closer attention to their customers."
We can't wait.
