Style Story: Fashion to Figure
Posted on June 07 2022
FTF is THE place to go when you want to dress up for a date, night out on the town or beach getaway. We love them for their collabs with plus-size models and influencers, and that they’re a cartoon character-free zone. Their pieces are designed to hug and show off your curves!
Here are some of our favourite looks…

Fatphobia in Dating Shows
Posted on March 02 2022
This month’s blog is focused on fatphobia in reality dating shows. I’ve been watching Season 2 of Love Is Blind on Netflix (don’t worry, there are no spoilers here!), where the premise of the show is to meet your match based on forming strong emotional connections, sight unseen. The participants talk to each other in “pods” through a frosted glass window, removing the distractions of physical appearances, sex appeal, etc.
What's New in The Shop?
Posted on November 03 2021
Since we last chatted, we’ve added a TON of new products for Fall and Winter to The Curvy Shop. Everything from cozy shackets and sweaters from Eloquii and Madewell, to faux fur and puffer jackets from Hilary MacMillan, to wide-leg friendly footwear from Keds and Hunter Boots. We are adding new items every week and The Sparkle Shop featuring holiday-worthy looks will be opening very soon!
Why Can’t I Find Outdoor Gear in Plus Sizes?!?
Posted on October 05 2021
If plus-sized folks want to enjoy outdoor activities like skiing, biking or hiking, you should be able to find suitable clothing and equipment to fit your body. So why can't we find outdoor activity clothing in our size?

With so much on the go, you’re going to want to stay in-the-know. Many exciting things have happened at The Curvy Shop over the past several weeks, and there are many more cool things in store. Here's what's happened and what's coming up!
It's Been a Minute!
Posted on July 04 2021
It’s been a minute and I hope you are all having a lovely summer so far. Hard to believe that our last blog was two months ago! One of my goals for 2021 was to write a monthly blog but what can I say, life sometimes gets in the way. I made the call to take the month of June to rest, recharge and focus on other activities.
What is the Fat Tax?
Posted on May 04 2021
How does the Fat Tax work when it comes to plus-sized clothing?
Essentially, the plus-sized consumer is charged more for an item in plus sizes when the same item produced in straight sizes sells for less.
Many brands try to justify this pricing by claiming that the item costs “more to produce” because of “all of the extra fabric” they need to make plus-sized garments.

Winning the Race in Plus-Size Athleisure Wear
Posted on March 04 2021
Athletic and athleisure wear.
It’s become a bigger part of our wardrobes over the last year, as we’re spending more time at home and working in leggings has become the norm.
What is Food Policing?
Posted on February 02 2021
Food policing is behaviour that labels food and eating as either good or bad, and gives food varying (and arbitrary) levels of moral value, often in the name of “health.” These labels could come from the internal messages in your head to outward comments from friends, family, colleagues or even strangers.

When Extending to Extended Sizes Fails

Welcome to The Curvy Blog!
Posted on July 19 2019
Hey there! Welcome to shopthecurvy.com! Thanks for stopping by! Leading up to the website launch, I had a chat with ATB Financial for their “YouTube Live” show – a live video chat that’s available to their employees. We talked about what I’ve been up to and where I want to take the company. We also talked about the up’s and down’s of the crowdfunding campaign, and if I would do it again (maybe not in 2020, but would love to mentor other female entrepreneurs!).
