"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!
I must admit our culture is in demand for certain brands and the curvy community is no exception. That's why we posted an ad showing a few of the great plus size clothing brands we carry at Urban Thick.
You may recognize some of the brands listed but others may not be as obvious. However, we assure that all of our plus size clothing items fits the UT promise of great quality!
Urban Thick is reaching it's 3rd-year of serving the Curvy community. We are pleased to be in the forefront of offering beautiful clothing at such affordable prices.
Recently we reached out to our Facebook Friends and other Admirers asking them how we can improve the Urban Thick website. Thanks to the responses we've made a few changes and still have a ways to go.
Another great addition to our website is the Home Seller program. Our Facebook friends can now sell their lightly used clothing straight from the comfort of their homes! What a great way to earn extra cash!
I see this cute blouse but guess what??? My arms won't fit! My arms have been an issue for me for a long time. So I am devoting some time to deal with my "flabby" arms once and for all starting with some tips from this article I came across
Soon we will be heading into the holiday season. With so many office celebrations and then the big office holiday party, can a fabulous and thick chick be the star of the ball? Rocking this dress she sure can be.
Don't be shy this season ladies. Urban Thick will be here to save you. We are gong to make sure you have a rockin' outfit to wear at the office party!
Don't be shame of your frame!
Seeing that I'm single I've been asking myself this question, "is there a perfect fit for the fabulous and thick woman like myself?"
I've had the occasional flirting moments and met a couple of young guys trying to see if I wanted to be there "suga mama" but nothing really of substance since my last relationship.
So I came across this website called BBWCupid. Have you heard of it? Well nothing thus far, but I also haven't paid the "upgrade" membership fee either. I'm not sure if I find it worth it or not. Have you used any online dating sites? Did you find a perfect fit as a fabulous and thick woman? Please share.....
