I opened Curvology, my plus-size clothing boutique, in November of 2018. My original business model was to create a safe space for women to walk in the door and find fashion-forward clothing that was not sold to the masses and not available anywhere else in town.
“You’re so tall. You should definitely model!”
Sometimes, the right partner can make all the difference….
To the women whose depression makes it hard for them to love themselves: I’m talking to you. I understand what you are going through.
If you had asked my 25-year-old self if I could see a future in which I would take my clothes off in front of a live audience (on purpose!) I would have probably laughed, or maybe cried, and walked away quickly.
All of us at Curvicality were saddened to learn of the sudden death of Heather A. Nelson this month. Before she died, she wrote this essay, which we share here as a remembrance of her. We offer our deepest condolences to all who knew and loved her. You can leave a kind comment for her loved ones. (We’ve included a link to her obituary at the bottom of this article.)
