Spread your wings and fly - Check out #plussizemodel Ms. Angel wearing this awesome size 20 faux leather skirt by Forever Audrey. I try to explain to women all the time, it's not your #size that matters but your #measurements . Every company/designer measures their clothing differently. So many women wear the same #brand or #style only because they know what size to buy with that particular brand. But what if you knew your measurements? If you knew your measurements you could branch out and explore new brands and new styles. Look for measurements when your #shop. Know your numbers so you can really enjoy the #power of looking and feeling great be it in a size 20 or 22! Learn more by setting up a consultation with one of our Urban Thick Specialist today! We'll send you a cute outfit every month, signing up is easy.

Paloma is a #COURAGEOUS Curvy You Should Know, originally from Los Angeles currently living in New York. This exotic young woman is doing big things as the chosen sports bra model for the highly successful company Nike. Her personal story is as interesting and amazing as her beauty.
She shares that all too familiar story about having a crying break-down while shopping at the Gap, as a 5th grader. She was trying to find the perfect pair of jeans for her then "chubby" body-frame but nothing seemed to fit. Her frustration turned into tears. A lot of Curvys can relate to this experience. However, now in her twenties, this Instagram social media personality is being seen as a "plus size" sensation and someone we should all be proud of. Read more here.
What does a curvy woman in a new state do in order to make a living and create something she's proud of? The answer, she starts an online boutique and consignment store and names it Urban Thick.
Hi everyone, I'm Dina, your curvy executive officer and I wanted to share my "courageous" story and hopefully you will share yours.
In 2005 I moved to Georgia from California to start a new chapter in my life. At the time I was married and the goal was to live our dreams and start a family. Six months later I was getting a divorce and starting over in a new state as a single woman. #Courageous- The first "courageous" thing was passing the Real Estate Sales Person state exam, then after 20-years of working corporate jobs, I stepped into a job that was commission only. Wow....how different is it to work a job that only pays commission versus getting a paycheck every two-weeks.
In 2007 the economy took a dive and my Real Estate career was over. Life became really scary, I had to find a way to earn a living. So from 2007 until 2013 I took odd jobs while getting my business off the ground. In 2013 the creation of Urban Thick was born and the rest is history. That's my courageous story, what's yours? Please share your story and send it to: email@example.com

Urban Thick overall business concept isn't really new. At the core, we are a clothing boutique and consignment store. However, we have several unique features that helps us stand out from the rest and getting our sellers paid within the first 30-days is at the top of the list. We also specialize in plus size clothing while utilizing numerous online platforms to make rapid sales.
Most of our sellers send us clothing every three months. They are more than excited to about being paid every two-weeks. These are our V.I.P Sellers and they never have to worry about shipping fees. In addition their items have priority over other Sellers. We also offer free shipping to our first-time sellers. This way they get a chance to try us out without any out of pocket cost.
Although we are still considered to be in the beginning stages of growing into a huge brand. We are excited with our position thus far. Currently reaching over 2100 Facebook friends and just over 1600 Instagram followers. We have a long way to go but with each happy customer, seller, and successful modeling shoot we are destined to get there!

Yes, it's true that Urban Thick is an online plus size boutique and consignment store. However we are so much more! So when my team and I sat down to brainstorm about what other services we could offer to our curvy customers and fans, we decided to dance.
Dancing will be an awesome way to get plus size women together and eliminate the myth that "being big" means not caring about your health and/or body. For whatever reason, some women are carrying extra weight and dancing to some great music can help them stay on the road to a healthier lifestyle. So once a month we will be having our Get Fit Class in the Georgia area.
If you think you can "move" join us by signing up soon. Classes starting in July and we are looking for a minimum of 10 ladies to get started! Let your curves be heard, shop, sell, save, & model with us today!
One of my most enjoyable pleasures is exploring new things.
Latatiana came to our recent auditions and was excited about modeling some of our cute clothes. So when we handed her a pair of capri pants made by a company called Woman Within she was pleasantly surprised at how great the fit was and how well the pants flattered her curves. She had never worn or heard of this brand before.
We get this reaction all the time. Many plus size women do not know or explore the numerous brands available to them. For so long, designers did not encompass "plus sizes" in their collections, so many women developed a routine of shopping at the same clothing stores which means wearing the same brands.
Urban Thick is working towards changing the myth that there's limited variety in quality plus size clothing. So when we saw the smile on Latatiana's face we knew her mentality shifted and by having this positive experience she would forever be changed and opened to trying new brands. We want all of our customer to experience this same reaction and excitement towards our wide variety of known and unknown clothing brands.
So the next time you're looking to step out of your everyday brand choice to find something new and different, take your measurements and visit our website. You'll be pleasantly surprised just like Latatitana, we have a lot of great options and styles for you to choose from.
