I would like to comment on the review of size discrimination. Marthas Boutique does carry many styles and sizes. Many of them are limited because of availabilty. She carries from a sub zero to 5x sizes. My daughter is a size 20 and bought a very beautiful evening gown for a Captains naval ball. My other daughter size 12 also poicked up a very beautiful gown. I don't know what this person experienced, but as for myself, I think she is a wonderful person who goes out of her way to accomadate all sizes, shapes and colors.

Traveling through Mariposa over Thanksgiving, I stopped in at Martha's Boutique. I wanted to know if the pretty black dress with gold sequins hanging outside which looked to be a size 6, was in stock in size 10 or 12. Upon meeting the sales girl, I was told that the owner did not buy "larger" sizes. Indeed, the nice dresses in stock all seemed to be size 4 to size 8, and the lions share of other clothes were all labeled "one size fits all." When I queried the sales girl as to why they did not have sizes 10 through 14, she said the owner ("Martha," one would suspect) had Bariatric surgery to lose a great deal of weight, and now only buys clothes with petite women in mind. One would think that in a tourist town that relies on tourism sales for survival, that the owner would be mindful of the fact that, nearly 90 percent of American women are size 10 to size 14????most closer to size 14. Why the owner would discriminate against women of normal or average size when she was reportedly clinically obese at one point to justify Bariatric surgery is puzzling and simply poor business. Whatever the reason, it's clear that body image issues and possible mental health problems related to disordered eating, do not exist solely in America's large cities, but can found in quaint, beautiful towns like Mariposa, California.

The ladies in this small love this little clothing shop. It has the latest imports from India. They are made of cotton, cotton and rayon and rayon. Some of the styles are so unique and feminine. Lots of dresses long and short. Cute blouses and skirt and shirt sets and pant sets. Great stuff for the 90-100 degree weather. Prices are excellent.
