Many people think women over, say, a size 12, really couldn’t care less about style.
So they come to the erroneous conclusion that women of a certain size simply don’t like to shop.
Because of that, most consignment stores and vintage-clothing boutiques don’t like to accept lightly worn blouses, trousers, blazers, and bathing suits in bigger sizes, leaving many women who would like to trade in their size-16 skinny jeans for a strapless floral maxi totally bummed.
Enter Curve Conscious, a consignment store that sells and resells contemporary clothing — as in not vintage — in sizes 12 to 24.

Hoping to change that, Brewerytown businesswoman Adrienne Ray (below) decided to open her exclusively plus-size consignment shop, Curve Conscious, 2719 W. Girard Ave., in June. Since then, Ray said, the store has been a hit.
