It takes a village as they say. And, I am all about sharing the good stuff with my fat, thick, plush, and curvy friends. Hopefully now that I have been in this curvy lingerie business for a bit over 2 years, it has become clear that I really enjoy “community” and sharing any knowledge and resources. I hate for anyone to have to reinvent the wheel. If you are new to me, I am the owner of Curvy Girl Lingerie which is my plus size lingerie and romance boutique in San Jose, CA. Additionaly, I own/admin Facebook.com/CurvyGirlInc and I also sell and ship plus size lingerie all over the curvy world via my online store CurvyGirlLingerie .
