This is a mother-daughter business that started in 2001 to provide a full range of great intimate fashions for plus size women, "exclusively". You will not find any size zero models posing here. Their establishment offers a breadth of products for sexy nights or every day sleepwear.
Selection: No bras, but they do have baby dolls, chemises, gowns, teddys, pajamas, bustiers, robe sets, bridal, costumes and some vinyl wear.
Sizing: About Curves offers lingerie in sizes 1x - 6x. There is a simple search box for size or keyword searches. Entering a search for 3x produced some results as well as further search options for style, color and price range. There was no way to tell at a glance how many options the search produced but I didn't feel gipped by the selections offered.
Styling: There's everything from demure to sexy to sleezy.
Pricing: Cheap to expensive. Lovely chemises for as cheap as $21 and beautiful corsets as expensive as $105. If you are into collecting points they also have a free Points Program where you can earn one point for each full dollar you spend. Every 20 points equals $1 off a future purchase.
Availability: About Curves ships within the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Internationally. Shipping costs vary greatly between U.S. and Canada ($6/$25 - $55).
Overall Impression: I have to say one of the best things about this website is the models. Visitors can actually see what sexy lingerie will look like over their lumps and bumps and every thing in between. The website says, "all of the models are at least a size 16".
About Curves also have an interesting gift feature which would be perfect for male shoppers. It's called "A Year of Romance Gift Club". For $365 the buyer can have a special lingerie selection sent to his lover once a month for a year. It's the gift that really keeps on giving.
Over the last year About Curves' website has expanded in style, product and in its professional look. The website is easy to surf and I had no problem finding information on shipping and sizing.
