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!

We're often asked by our sellers, "which brands sell the best"? So I've provided the top ten brands that are considered our "hot list". However one of the best features Urban Thick offers is that we carry 100s of brands in one central location. By doing this we are introducing our customers to a wide variety of quality clothing as well as a chance to stand out from the crowd.
Every woman wants to wear a great outfit that no one else is wearing. The idea of walking into an event wearing an outfit that someone else has on, is a scene we all try to avoid. Many women find a brand that fits them and stick with that single brand, but by simply knowing your measurements you can easily experiment with a variety of brands.
We recently posted this video explaining the benefits of knowing your measurements with a model demonstration from German designer Ulla Popken. It's really helpful and informative. Our mission is to offer our plus size community the choices and quality they deserve. At Urban Thick we fit your curves and your wallet. Visit us today!

I know numbers not fashion, that's why I collaborate with fashionable people. -Dina
My professional background is in business law and financial reporting. I absolutely love working with numbers and doing research. So when I started Urban Thick, boy was I surprised to learn that I'd entered into the fashion world. I was in total denial. But after our tremendous growth and working with the models I realized that selling clothes was selling fashion. As luck would have it, after creating several ad campaigns, we got the attention of "AZgirlwithstyle".
AZgirlwithstyle real name is Shawnte Hernton. She is a fabulous Fashion Consultant and Personal Stylist. We connected on Instagram and came up with a campaign that would increase the interest in some of our unsold inventory. The picture seen above is just one of her many creative styling combinations. I really learned a lot about fashion and colors from working with her.
So to all of the "fashionistas" out there I truly admire your work. Urban Thick is constantly looking for the opportunity to work with others in the fashion industry. We understand just how important your expertise is and how beneficial it can be collaborating with truly talented people.
When you do business with us, you don't pay us until we pay you!
It may sound to good to be true, but it is true indeed. Because we want to earn the trust and business of our sellers Urban Thick decided to do things differently. So we do not require our sellers to pay any upfront fees. Many consignment stores charge a non-refundable set-up fee to sale items in their stores, with an additional commission fee once it sales. We, however foot the bill of having the items shipped leaving the seller worry-free when consigning with us.
Once we receive a shipment, an email is sent to the Seller explaining our process. Each item is then inspected, logged in our system, photographed, measured, and posted for sale. A virtual closet is opened on our website and the magic begins. After an item has been sold the Seller receives a link to review all the details. Payments are sent every other Tuesday in the method established by the Seller.
Customers are very happy because they've received a quality item and our sellers are excited about the extra income with little effort on their part. Although we are the facilitators of the sale, our job of bringing the clothes to life through our marketing techniques and beautiful plus size models are not at all easy, but we love the collaboration.
