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!

"Garage sales can be hell, so welcome to the virtual selling world!" -Dina
I've been in sales since I was 10-years old. So now at age 47 I sell just about everything from books to boats. Being able to have a career as an online Sales Broker gives me such enjoyment. It's truly one of my passions. With that being said, I envisioned Urban Thick as a virtual thrift store, selling quality items that belong in a specialty boutique. We're working on doing just that.
Recently we've added the Resale Shop to Urban Thick and according to the numbers, our customers are embracing this concept. In addition to clothes, shoppers can buy items such as educational tools, electronics, toys, and books. Our philosophy is, "skip the hassle of a garage sale and embrace the convenience of using a virtual platform instead."
Urban Thick Sellers can earn extra income every two weeks by selling their items in a virtual clothing closet or specialty booth and the best part is we'll do all the work! Many millennials have already embraced this concept. However, it's going to take some time before the other generations get on board. Still, it will happen eventually, especially since so many social media sites have incorporated new selling and "buy now" tools to their platforms. We're not worried because when they're ready we'll be right here to get them started. To learn more listen to our weekly podcast on Sundays at 6:30pm eastern time. Until then, happy selling!

"I've always wanted to be a model, and now is a great time to start." - Saundra
Saundra came to our recent modeling auditions and we took to her right away. Standing 5'10" wearing a size 16/18 she was ready to smile for the camera and show off her beauty. She heard about Urban Thick from one of our modeling ads on Facebook. It just so happened that a friend of hers saw the ad and by knowing Saundra's aspirations, immediately shared it with her. Within minutes she was registering on the site, making sure her photo stood out from the rest.
We hold auditions on a monthly basis, looking for women with different curvy body types, features, confidence, and beauty. We'd speculated that Saundra would be a good fit for us so before the shoot we gave her a call. Soon after she was posing for our photographer and later being placed on the roster for future shoots.
The Lesson: Never let go of your desires, sometimes it's only a matter of time. ~Let your curves be heard!
Making The Choice To Live Life On Your Own Terms Is A Life Worth Living! -Dina
Chay Crews also known to many as the "Alabama Stallion" submitted her bio to Urban Thick, hoping to start another avenue as a plus size model in her already busy life. We wanted to know if Chay had the talent to help us accomplish our mission of selling confidence through clothes. So I was interested in speaking with her.
When I spoke with Chay before her first photo shoot I was pleasantly surprised by her positive attitude and enthusiasm for becoming a plus size model. Our first meeting went so well, I asked her to join the Urban Thick family in which she accepted.
You will be hearing more about Chay on one of our future podcasts. This young lady is really doing some interesting things in the entertainment industry. Keep your ears open for more exciting news about Chay and her future endeavors!
For the past 11-years, I've been building multiple streams of income and obtaining wealth through ownership. I've spoken with several groups of women about pursuing their passion and streaming their dreams. Some listened, started and stopped, others made excuses and turned a blind eye, while just a few stuck it out and are now on track to earning passive streams of income for themselves.
Now, I'm back on my weekly podcast talking about how to start the process of creating passive income and the importance of doing it now rather than later. We've entered into a new industry and most people are not even aware of it. E-commerce is here to stay and changing the way we live our daily lives. We're going to discuss this world and how you can benefit from it using simple technology and the many platforms out there.
Women around the world can listen to our podcast by streaming or phoning into our live show. We'll engage the audience by chatting in the chat room and taking their questions on air. Don't worry, if you've missed it, we'll have it as an archive file on the main show page.
Learn how you too can take positive steps towards a brighter financial future!
"Beauty is more than an outsider's view of your body. Beauty is your soul's introduction to the world" - Dina
My intentions behind starting Urban Thick was to create a platform whereby plus size curvy women could buy and sell beautiful clothing for affordable prices. What I didn't realize at the time was that I was stepping into the fashion arena. In this world, clothes and beauty are defined and worn mostly by women wearing a size 0. Hence curvy women were often left out of advertisements or seen very little. But things are starting to change. With popular events such as New Year's Full Figure Fashion Week originated by former runway model Gwen DeVoe. As well as top paid plus size models like Tess Holliday, more beautiful women with larger body sizes are redefining beauty standards to the world!For many curvy women identifying their beauty is difficult even though positive plus size images are being shown more now than before. The awareness of beauty for all body-types have a long way to go in many mainstream media markets. Therefore, until that day comes Urban Thick will continue to be a plus positive cheerleader! We work with beautiful plus size women everyday and we'll continue to promote them and the various body-types out there using our cute trendy clothes as an avenue for change.
