Women’s Plus Size Shop: The Dream of a Woman EntrepreneurIn 1960, long before it became fashionable to cater to full-figured women, an enterprising woman named Catherine Weaver opened a small plus size women’s clothing boutique in Memphis. 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.
Turns out, Catherine Weaver was on to something. Today, as part of the Ascena Retail Group family of stores, and with nearly 400 locations nationwide, Catherines serves a unique niche in the marketplace offering some of the most beautiful (and comfortable) plus size clothing available in sizes 16W-34W and 0X-5X.
Catherines shoppers will also find plus size bras and plus size lingerie in hard-to-find extended sizes, along with a selection of women’s plus size formalwear and Mother-of-the-Bride dresses at Catherines.com.
