I got into fashion purely out of frustration . . . I’m a big girl and I’ve always loved looking good, but I found that most retail stores concern themselves purely with providing plus-size women with clothes that fit, but that aren’t necessarily stylish. Whenever I had an event to go to, I’d buy material and get a seamstress to make me what I wanted. All of this made me wonder how many other big girls found themselves in my position. That’s how Plus-Fab was born. And true to our tagline, “Not Just The Right Size”, we really pride ourselves in making sure that full-figured women also hold their own out there.
