Fashion Is For EVERYONE
Posted on April 19 2018
Here at Shine On, it’s really important to us that we cater for all shapes and sizes.
This became especially important to us when we first opened our retail store and Fee noticed a woman in the store who couldn’t find anything in her size. Feeling terrible, we knew that was something we never wanted to happen again.
So one of our missions became to provide fashionable clothing, at great prices, for ALL women. Fashion is for EVERYBODY at Shine On, we all want to look good, feel good, and we know that finding clothing we love can be a challenge regardless of what size you are.
One of the things we love about a lot of the brands we carry is that they celebrate the figure – they don’t hide it! We’ve got you covered with everything from casual to work to date-night and we are always adding more to the mix!
We also often request our suppliers make larger sizes just for us. Overall, our sizing ranges from an 8 – 24. Every week we are asking the people who make the brands we stock to start thinking about catering for all women – to think more about who is not their size 8 - 14 customer, and who is missing out! Both they AND we are!!!
And we are slowly having some success. Ideally one day, we will be able to offer each style of clothing in all sizes requested by our customers. But it is a journey to get there.
This April we were really excited to launch the Rebel Wilson x Angels brand and it is selling like hotcakes – we heard our customers asking for more fashion-forward clothing that celebrates curves, and this range definitely delivers on that, check it out if you haven’t taken a look yet!
If you’re a little on the fence, join our Shine On VIP Group on Facebook. Our VIP space is a place to talk about everything – the things that are working and not working. We read the posts and comments and often respond, because we appreciate all feedback. We also have customers who are our reviewers – women just like you who we send clothing to, so they can post up a video review in the group.
While we use our own model to photograph a lot of our curvy ranges, we know our customers who can’t get to our retail store appreciate seeing reviews from real people in their bedrooms showing us the fall, the cut – at times the complete top to toe outfit from Shine On!
Our reviewers are paid in clothes – we just want their honest feedback to help our customers decide what is best for them, we don’t influence or edit what they say at all.
Search for your size in our VIP Group and there are dozens of posts sharing wins, recommendations and honest opinions on our clothing. They’re a great tool to help you make decisions on what’s in your Wishlist!
We are proud that our VIP group is a safe and friendly network for fashion lovers – it’s all about women supporting women, just as it should be!!!
And if you’ve recently bought something, post your own review! We welcome anyone’s videos or posts, and because we’re such a lovely bunch, you don’t need a clean mirror or your hair and makeup done. Just prop your phone against something and get filming!
Fashion doesn’t start or end at a size 12, and neither do we! Please do join our VIP Group to hear from other Shine On Ladies and be a part of our beautiful community. Or pop in to our store – our team LOVE styling our Ladies to make sure they walk out feeling like a million dollars!
