“We always look forward to these photo shoots, because we get to see how our new items look on different plus size women. And the women we use as models love trying on all the different lingerie. Many of them have never modeled before.”

More on About Curves:
About Curves was started in 2001 by a mother-daughter team, Robin Bryan-Culver and K.C. Culver, who were frustrated by the lack of options available to women who do not fit the "model mold." Their mission is to provide women with the ability to feel sexy and to encourage women of all shapes and sizes to celebrate their curves.
Every product offered by About Curves is personally approved by a team of discriminating shoppers, and modeled by plus size women in About Curves' very own photo shoots. About Curves owners pride themselves on their insistence that women should not be made to squeeze their bodies into outfits that are uncomfortable, disrespectful, or poorly made, as is often the case across the apparel and lingerie industry.
