The market for plus-size clothing in this country was valued at more than $24 billion in 2020. But most mainstream brands don’t make clothes that cater to people with curves.
That’s where Juicy Body Goddess comes in. The plus-size boutique has fashions for sizes XL to 6X. Shoppers can search for styles online or on the racks of their Charlotte, North Carolina boutique. And they make no apologies about leaving out ladies looking for clothing in sizes small, medium and large. In a recent TikTok video, Juicy Body Goddess shoppers are greeted enthusiastically as they walk in,“Welcome to Juicy Body Boutique where you gotta be two-something to do somethin’ or three-something to be somethin’.”
In a 2021 interview with the Charlotte NBC affiliate, owner Summer Lucille says she opened her store to give plus-size women more access to fashion that makes them look and feel their best.
“I’m a fat girl, and I’m making clothes for fat girls. Going to one of the big chain stores, we only have a little corner, so I wanted to open up the gates to women all over the world who are plus size,” she said.
And Lucille is making her presence known in the market with 1.2 million followers on TikTok and 118,000 on Instagram.
