Dress Barn

Is it just me, or is "Dress Barn" a really bad name for a store? What sort of imagery are we supposed to think of when we see that name? Farm animals? Dresses big enough for a barn? Dresses that look like they might be worn in a barn? Who wants to buy dresses out of a barn?

I had admit that I have bought clothes there. They should change the name too - maybe something along the lines of "cheap clothes for ambitious secretaries."

I too think of farm animals, particularly cows, for some reason. Because of this, I am convinced that it is a plus-size store, although I do not know for sure because I have never been in one because of said name.

However, the best plus-size store name I can think of is "Greater L.A. Woman"

The plus size store is called Dress Barn Woman. Even more unattractive.
