Thank you, theCURVYcon 2017! We had a blast attending the third year of this exciting conference, created by Chastity Garner and CeCe Olisa. From shopping to meet-and-greets to panels on body positivity, professional development, and special key-note speaker Chrissy Metz, this two-day event was packed. We loved the lively, supportive, love-fest feeling energy of this conference and we loved meeting you!

But the idea of sharing and renting, as opposed to simply buying, is a relatively new one, especially in terms of fashion. CBS “This Morning” spoke with our CEO Christine Hunsicker about the new sharing economy while touring our warehouse and dry cleaning facility (seriously, it’s the biggest closet you’ve ever seen).
