I was raised around a close set of aunts and cousins that all had full chests and curvy figures. We were taught that the female body in its true form was a symbol of pride, confidence and authenticity.
Years later, I was grappling with finding the right clothes that fit the same figure I was taught to love. Clothes were either too baggy, or looked too revealing on my body type. After taking a trip to Ghana and having a similar conversation with a classmate, we found there were many women experiencing the same issue.
Frustrated by the difficulty in finding clothes that fit, we launched Buzzoms, designed to celebrate and validate women with curvy figures. We’re styling for the women that consistently feel unseen in fashion due to current sizing standards, but never let that stop them in their search for a good fit.
