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!

"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.
