Curvy Consumers Find Stylish Fashions That Fit and Flatter

Vancouver, WA - July 15, 2003 -, an internet resource for plus size women and teens, has launched a one-of-a-kind search engine dedicated exclusively to the fashion conscious, full figured consumer.

“Currently we have over 530 plus size fashion links for our visitors to choose from,” stated Valery Foley, founder and CEO. “Our team developed a user-friendly search engine that recognizes the needs of the curvy shopper by including not only the styles of clothing she is looking for, but the size, current specials and vendors that cater exclusively to this consumer.”

In addition, the search engine allows visitors to rate a company and offer detailed opinions on their shopping experience as well as post their views on the fit, style and quality of the fashions offered.

In the early 1990's there were approximately 200 vendors catering to the plus size market and today there are over 2000. According to Michele Weston, author of Learning Curves: Living Your Life in Full and With Style (Crown), 68 percent of adult women in the United States -- about 65 million women -- wear a size 12 or above. In a September 2001 report from, U.S. retail sales of women’s plus-size apparel approached $32 billion in year 2000, representing a 33% rate of growth since 1996, and capturing a 27% share of all U.S. women’s apparel sales – making it the fastest-growing segment in the industry.
