"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!
When I met our lead model last year, I had no idea how things were going to work out. Ask anyone who knows me and they'll tell you that I have a "no nonsense" personality when it comes to business. So when Scheronda and I started working together I was pleasantly surprised at how professional she was.
Sheronda has several beauty pageant titles, she's a stylist, and model. She also has an honorable full-time job she loves. But what's really impressive is her sense of style, inner beauty, and confidence. She is Urban Thick!
Urban Thick is not a place, color, or thing. It's a felling of Confidence! All women should have this feeling while doing the important things they do in the world. What we wear as curvy women is a reflection of who we are and how we're perceived. Our sense of fashion and style comes from within. When a woman is wearing the right clothes for her body type she looks well put together and comes across as being strong, empowered and of course confident.
So when the models wear our beautiful clothes, they are helping us exemplify the beauty of plus size women in all shapes and sizes. We can showcase them wearing a fitted formal dress or rocking a pair of jeans. At Urban Thick our customers buy confidence and in return, we make sure they get the clothes they deserve to fit their curves!
"Let your urves be heard!"
P.S. We are always looking for aspiring plus size models/consignment sellers and new customers!
At Urban Thick we provide clothing for women starting from size 12 and currently stocking up to 6x. You would think that knowing your size is the best way to find that perfect dress or outfit. ~Sorry, you would be wrong! Most women are what I call "between sizes" and now more than ever in the plus size world there are just far to many brands and designers to rely totally on one number. The plus size woman now have many choices including European styles. Proving the point that every item made will never be the same. We should have learned this lesson in the "One Size Fits All" era, one size can never fit everyone!To get that perfect fit, you should know three basic measurements:
