This is a question that many have asked and depending on who you ask you will get a different answer. Let's discuss what is true Plus Size to you and why?
Where would Designers be without models to showcase their designs? More importantly, where would models be without Designers? In this industry there is a huge lack of support for one another. Tonight we are going to focus on the Desingers becasue they are the ones that make us look GOOD; in fashions shows, in our photos, at parties, etc. So I ask, where is the support for our designers? Before you go shopping at Macy's and spend your money on the "established" brands; contact your favorite independent designer and support them. Let's Talk About It.

Dina's story behind Urban Thick - As a plus-size woman myself, I wanted clothing that represented my many fashion moods. Meaning, wearing unique outfits with vibrant colors. My goal was to find pieces that were tasteful, exciting, and fun to wear. I wasn't finding these variations at my local department stores. As a matter of fact, when I moved to my new home in Georgia, my community had one dedicated plus size clothing store. This particular store closed it's doors a year later. Currently, we have two dedicated commercial plus size stores but I refuse to pay high prices for low quality clothing. Hence, solving the problem with Urban Thick! Urban Thick is an online women's clothing store. We sell and consign plus size clothes at thrift store prices with the quality of an upscale boutique.
At Urban Thick, we sell and consign a wide range of "quality" clothing and accessories. Our store symbolizes an ACCEPTANCE and positive ATTITUDE towards a woman's curvy image.
