Urban Thick overall business concept isn't really new. At the core, we are a clothing boutique and consignment store. However, we have several unique features that helps us stand out from the rest and getting our sellers paid within the first 30-days is at the top of the list. We also specialize in plus size clothing while utilizing numerous online platforms to make rapid sales.
Most of our sellers send us clothing every three months. They are more than excited to about being paid every two-weeks. These are our V.I.P Sellers and they never have to worry about shipping fees. In addition their items have priority over other Sellers. We also offer free shipping to our first-time sellers. This way they get a chance to try us out without any out of pocket cost.
Although we are still considered to be in the beginning stages of growing into a huge brand. We are excited with our position thus far. Currently reaching over 2100 Facebook friends and just over 1600 Instagram followers. We have a long way to go but with each happy customer, seller, and successful modeling shoot we are destined to get there! You can help us and have a chance at winning some great gifts by joining us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. To shop for cute curvy quality clothes visit UrbanThick.com today!

"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!
Your Sales Broker & Curvy Executive Officer
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!
"I dress based on my mood and my mission,
so one or both can change daily!" -Dina
When I started Urban Thick back in 2011, I didn't see a lot of plus size online affordable shopping options. I grew up in Southern California where variety is the foundation of it's mere existence. You can eat just about any cultural dish you could every image, and with the exception of maybe New York, clothing options are as plentiful and diverse as the people who live there. So when I moved to Georgia, I was shocked!
Don't get me wrong, I found the basic commercial big girl stores, however because of my size and career, quality clothing is a necessity! Another thing that is important to me, is my individuality. I do not want to wear what everyone else is wearing. In fact I will wear a seemingly tight fitted dress for a night out on the town, but not for a meeting with clients. It seems that the multifaceted plus size woman is sometimes trapped between all tight or just alright. This is where Urban Thick comes in.
We carry a variety of quality name brand clothing and styles including some popular designer labels. You can get formal and casual wear. You can also treat yourself to an outfit for the "playroom" (bedroom) or the boardroom. We have it all! As women we need one place that has something for every part of our lives. Just like our hair, sometimes we want to wear it down for work, then whip it into an updo for a wedding. So the next time you're feeling in the mood to be you, consider what Urban Thick can do!
Your Curvy Executive Officer
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!
