Pink Clove - Is Their Facebook Page Hot or Not?

This morning on a couple of different platforms I saw people posting that they were upset about a 'hot or not' type feature that Pink Clove featured on their Facebook page.



My question to you is.... Is this just a bit of fun or are you offended by the post? Do you think that the retailer is just having a giggle with its customers or should they be more aware of what they are saying and much more body positive?

The post (which has now been deleted) certainly has raised a few eyebrows and posts on the picture are very mixed - with complaints being met by Pink Clove saying 'it's just a bit of fun'. They edited the photo after a few negative pictures to make it clear that they think it's just a bit of fun - but do you agree?

I'd love to know your thoughts!

  1. I can't see a problem with it at all.....I think it's just a bit of fun! I don't understand why people are getting their knickers in a twist!

  2. I think because of Pink Clove's recent shenanigans it's quite mind boggling to think what they're going to come up with next. I can only imagine their entrance into the plus size market was a cynical one for profit only, rather than understanding the market they claim to represent.

    Have there been worse PR disasters? Hell yeah, the Black Milk one was pretty legendary. I do think though that Pink Clove are skating on thin ice, and need to sort out their social media presence somewhat. As to my personal experience with the company, I've had some pretty shite service from them so I'm not buying from them unless I cave! x x

  3. Nope, don't like it, I don't think it's constructive at all, especially when us fat girls have been told all our lives that we're NOT hot. Sort of rubs it in, and is therefore a bit of an own goal.

  4. Leah, I've not been around fatshion blogs recently (too busy with stuff - arrghh!) and I haven't heard anything about Pink Clove's shenanigans - what's been going on?? I do like their clothes, but I'm not prepared to support sketchy companies!
