According to David Golshan, President of, “Our crusade is to put an end to the media myth that plus size women aren't attractive and style-conscious. I started this crusade of bring quality designs to all sizes four years ago when I met a noticeably upset women at Bloomingdale's Department Store. She was actually crying while explaining to the sales clerk that she needed, but could not find, a size 28 suit to wear for her daughter's wedding."

Golshan stated, "If you think about it, the few boutiques that carry upscale suits for women are almost all located in the big cities. What do you do if you don't live in a metropolitan city? Try finding upscale plus size selections in Hanktown, West Virginia. That is the beauty of the Internet. And we are one of the only websites that have what so many women are looking for."
