How Tasha Cobbs Helped Inspire A Plus-Size Online Boutique!!
Reader, the average woman is a size 16 these days, but finding fashions to fit her curvy frame can be a true struggle. Celebrity stylist Shun Melson says the difficulty of finding fab threads for her gospel-singing client Tasha Cobbs inspired her to create a solution. “It was the most difficult shopping experience I ever had — there wasn’t anything cute in stores for her size,” Melson explained to Billboard of the issue she ran into in 2014.
But instead of giving up, the determined fashionista did some digging around for clothing for full-figured women. That’s when she found wholesalers in L.A., created an online boutique for plus-size women desiring trendy pieces. Melson, who has styled Ledisi, Jennifer Hudson, Fantasia, Marvin Sapp, Fred Hammond, Edwin Hawkins, Tyler Perry and many more, now has a thriving business, and voluptuous women have wonderful options from which to choose.
