The fashion industry’s focus on microscopic models and single-digit sizing is finally becoming a thing of the past as women are encouraged more and more to embrace their gorgeous curves! This year, the average American woman wears a size 16, yet many clothing suppliers do not offer this variation of sizing. That’s why Urban Pearl is always looking to grow our Curvy Girl selection! As you learned in our Pearl Girl Philosophy blog post, we are committed to loving ourselves and loving each other, and that means not just embracing our bodies, but really working our curves! We love inspiring women like Ashley Graham, the first plus-size model to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated, who are empowering other women every day to love their bodies. Companies like Aerie have been paving the way for other retailers to begin not only to offer a larger variety of sizing, but to also choose models for their campaigns who are more relatable to consumers. In other words, we’re seeing models who actually look like us, wearing the clothes we actually want to wear! Urban Pearl has offered plus size options for years, but we’re taking the next step to make sure our clients are finding items that they love.
Since Urban Pearl began, our customers have told us how difficult it is to find cute, affordable items in a range of sizes, so we strive to make sure you always have the hottest trends available in the size that fits you best! No matter what your size or shape, at Urban Pearl you’ll be able to find the piece that compliments your body perfectly. We carry curvy sizes XL-3X throughout the store- just look for the aqua hangers! We’ll also be showing our commitment to our curvy Pearl Girls by working with a plus size buying specialist to assist with choosing the styles that will best compliment your body, so be on the lookout for some awesome new inventory! If you’re a curvy Pearl Girl, this is your moment! We want to see your fabulous style to all of our followers, so tag us in a selfie or send us a photo of you wearing your favorite Urban Pearl items!
