“Being a fuller bust and plus size woman, I have struggled most of my life trying to figure out and get the right size bra.
For a long time my only options were either waiting for people to travel, the secondhand market or hand me downs. It was frustrating and I ended up with self-confidence issues, dressing in baggy clothes to camouflage my bust and body in general. I had bad posture and back aches.”
"Today I look in the mirror and see a woman that has learnt to love herself unconditionally, a woman who has learnt not to be too hard on herself and a woman who has learnt to embrace her curves."

The Birth of a Business
I always wished that someone would open a shop selling underwear for plus size women. It dawned on me, I could be the one. Who better to sell plus size underwear than someone who feels the pain?

I believe that the foundation of any good wardrobe is underwear.
