Does this dress make my manatee look fat?

Minneapolis, MN (KGUN9 TV) - Target is coming under fire this morning for its description of a dress.
A savvy customer noted that a gray, plus-size dress was listed as "Manatee Gray", while the same dress in regular sizes was called "Dark Heather Gray."
Target spokesman Joshua Thomas says, "'Manatee Gray' is a standard color name used across Target products, plus-size and otherwise. Unfortunately there were two teams of buyers responsible for the two dresses, meaning they each chose different color names without consulting with one another."
Target tweeted an apology, 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."
