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.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
