About this company

In their own words: “Long before it became fashionable to cater to full-figured women, an enterprising woman named Catherine Weaver opened a small clothing boutique in Memphis. The year was 1960. As a plus-size woman herself, Catherine hoped to bring style, beauty and confidence to a like-minded clientele whose fashion choices were decidedly limited.”
