Target apologizes for plus-size dress name

Target named a plus-size dress color 'manatee gray.'

Photo credit: News 12 New Jersey | Target named a plus-size dress color 'manatee gray.'

EDISON - Target has apologized to customers after naming the color of one of its plus-size dresses 'manatee gray.'

The retailer was called out by a customer that noticed that a dress color listed as 'dark heather gray' in the misses section, was listed as 'manatee gray' for plus-size customers.

Target says it was unintentional and that the color is used with a number of its products. The store also says it's working to change the name.

That is what I had thought, as well. I did put in the Target search box, manatee grey, and there were 10 other Target items that came up under that name, in home accesories. So, who knows......

Don't think it's on purpose. If its a color they use in other things I'm going with unintentional. But who knows lol

 A manatee is a sea cow.Underwater photo of three animals swimming along bottom

I think as long as pregnancy clothes are not called sea cow gray that using that name for a color is fine.

hmmmm......I'm on the fence.  Do we really think the web peeps mixed up a plus-size dress with a throw pillow when adding the color names???

Good point! When I searched, there were no other clothing items, of any size, with that name.
