In case you don’t know me and are not familiar with my store and blog, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Chrystal and I own the 2nd ever Plus Size lingerie store and my store is in San Jose, CA. (Also known as Silicon Valley.) My store, Curvy Girl, is in the middle of high tech heaven and home to companies like EBay, Adobe, Facebook and Twitter. Not exactly known for SEXY here in San Jose. Sexy technology yes, but not really known for sexy time.
Last October, on 10/11/12, my baby “Curvy Girl Lingerie” was born. Curvy Girl is the only plus size lingerie store on the West Coast and as far as I know, there is only one other plus size lingerie store in the entire U.S. and they are in Philly. (Called Lovelies.) We have been open for 13 months and the past 13 months have been so amazing and way more successful then I forecasted or predicted. I figure it would take me a good three years to get the word out and find my tribe. It happened in about 6 months. Pretty amazing. It’s been so humbling, amazing, fulfilling, rewarding, exciting and about a million other adjectives. Just other worldly satisfying and so much fun.

“There are so many pics of models in lingerie, what about one of us regular chicks??”
Of course, I said YES! For one thing, my customers and Facebook followers ask me all Continue reading
