I met the man of my dreams but I weighed over 200 lbs and couldn't find any lingerie - so I set out to create the ultimate shopping experience for full figured divas and plus size fashionistas.
Motivation for Going Into Business:
I was 327 pounds and couldn't find pretty, stylish or fashion forward lingerie for myself. Victoria's Secret offered no products for women my size. Ashley Stewart and Lane Bryant left a lot to be desired. Finally, my choices at Macy's were black, beige and white. What's a big girl in the city supposed to do?
So I created Curvy Girlz Lingerie to be the ultimate shopping experience for full figured divas and plus size fashionistas.I am now under 200 pounds, less than a year later...
It’s Valentine’s Day and you finally met the man of your dreams!!! You know what time it is. It’s time to find some sexy lingerie to set the mood off nicely…but you weigh over 300 pounds!!! What’s a BIG GIRL In the city supposed to do?
Well, if you are anything like me, then you went to Victoria’s Secret and found out they don’t make a bra in your size. Then you went to Ashley Stewart and Lane Bryant and you didn’t really like the selection. Finally, I went to Macy’s where my choices were black, beige and white. Again, what’s a BIG Girl supposed to do?
That’s why I created Curvy Girlz Lingerie. At Curvy Girlz Lingerie, we celebrate the beauty of a curvy woman in all that we do. Curvy Girlz Lingerie is the ultimate shopping experience for full figured divas and plus size fashionistas. Despite what society says, curvy girlz matter and they absolutely ROCK!!!
It has been a huge challenge starting a company with very little money or assets. I was fired from my last job and knew it was now or never…
