I've been putting a lot of energy into projecting the right imagine I want Urban Thick to represent. It's been a long time dream of mine to own a business that can help others see themselves in a positive light.
Our business model is simple. Recycle your plus size clothes and make them affordable to other women in the plus size community while earning extra cash. In addition to selling clothes, shoppers have the opportunity to purchase quality clothes at super low prices. But here's the really great treat you get while shopping with Urban Thick, you get to see REAL plus size women modeling our clothes. These beautiful women are different shapes and sizes. How wonderful is that? We do other great things as well, like donating unsold clothes to charities such as Hope For Domestic Violence and AMVETS. Giving will always be a part of what we do. So while you have many choices on where to shop, take into consideration what those other stores stand for and give us a try! With us you can SHOP - SELL - SAVE & MODEL! See at Urban Thick.....
eHow do you get Urban Thick plus size models to stop laughing and having fun so that we can get the perfect shot? Nothing... just let them have a good time.
At our last photoshoot we included plus size model "Sunshine Red" (far left in Silver) our lead model Ms Shelena Redd, Angel (in red) and Ms. Monique. The ladies had a wonderful time and vowed to work with each other again in the near feature. If you want to stand loud and proud with Urban Thick. Sign-up to meet one of our models, take and send us a photo of something you've purchased from the store, or share your experience on our Facebook page.
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.
Happy Birthday to our lead model Scheronda Thompson. She is a true team player and beautiful person to know. When I started Urban Thick, I had a fictional character in my logo, but after meeting Sheronda that silhouette became a real person.
We teamed up about a year ago and right away had mutual respect for one another. With each photo shoot, we transformed Urban Thick into a noticeable brand. Sales increased and our social media followers wanted to know more about the beautiful model that radiated so much confidence as you can attest to in the photos.
Scheronda served as Ms. Montgomery Alabama Plus America 2014 and 2015. She is also the brand manager for Vixenz Designs out of Clarkesville, TN, as well as a speaker and advocate against bullying. The road of acceptance didn't come easy, yet she managed to bypass the negativity of body shaming with the love and support of her family, friends, and faith. Happy birthday again to one of the strongest women I know. Your more than just a pretty face, your the essence of Urban Thick!
