Talk about a fashion faux-pas: Target had some explaining to do after it labeled one of its plus-sized dresses “manatee gray.”

After a customer pointed out, to the company via their Twitter page, that a gray plus-sized dress was labeled “Manatee Gray,” the company apologized. The same dress in regular sizes was labeled as “Dark Heather Gray,” The Huffington Post reported.

After the discrepancy was pointed out, Target tweeted saying “We apologize for this unintentional oversight & never intend to offend our guests. We've heard you, and we're working to fix it ASAP.”

The "Manatee Grey" version of the Mossimo Women's Plus-Size Kimono Maxi Dress does not currently appear on, The Huffington Post reported.
