Curvy, fashion-forward girls don’t have an easy time shopping. Between the limited sizes offered in chic boutiques and trying to find on-trend clothing in stores that cater to all body shapes, locating the perfect combination of style and size can make for a disappointing shopping experience. Which is why Bree Reed—a fashion lover with curves herself—opened Buxom in March. The shop features everything from office looks, like business suits and dresses, to casual weekend wear, including denim Bermudas and tank tops. The exclusive lines are not only colorful and versatile (think long, ruffle-front cardigans and elongated shrugs to pair with a printed dress); they’re also wallet friendly, with prices ranging from $20 to $200. With just a few retail months under her belt, Reed already claims a dedicated following of full-figured, satisfied fashionistas, looking for size 12 and up.
