B & LU CLOTHING LINE BEGAN IN 2000 INÂ A BASEMENT AND IS NOW ONE OF THE UPCOMING HIP AND TRENDY CLOTHING LINES FOR THICKSATIONAL WOMEN. I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO TALK TO LUCIE WHO IS ONE OF THE OWNERS OF B & LU…
1. So where did you get the name B & Lu and tell me more about how you
started your clothing line.
The name is derived from our childhood nicknames– Lu-from Lucie &
B-somehow from Christine!
2. Why did you start a plus size clothing line?
We started our line because we knew there was a void in the market for cute
boutique-y plus clothes. We had plenty of friends & family who vented their
3. Who was or still is your inspiration for your designs?
I try to design things that are somewhat classic & ageless, meaning: styles
that can span generations.
4. I noticed you have jeans, how do you feel your jeans differ with other plus size jeans?
To be honest, jeans are not our specialty. We’ve tried to introduce more denim to our site, but they’ve never had an overly welcome response. We do carry a small, simple selection with a close fit (right now our skinnys are moving). We try to do flattering silhouettes without too much embellishment.
4. Where do you see B & Lu in the future?
We’d like to open our own local boutique & possibly expand our wholesale business to more stores big & small
5. Are there any fashion tips you can give to the thickettes who read my blog?
They say you need to work on yourself from the inside out, but having great
clothes on the outside sure doesn’t hurt! My “right now” tip is skinny jeans for all. They basically work the same as leggings, but of course denim is better! Pair with a flowy tunic & high wedge for a night out.
6. If there is one thicksational celeb you would like to work with, who would it be and why?
Sara Ramirez because she represents the unrepresented Latina segment of the population. She’s comfortable in her own skin, which helps others do the same. She’s also very cute & would be perfect for our styles!
B & LU CLOTHING LINE CARRY WOMEN’SÂ SIZES 14-30.Â THE PRICES ARE VERY REASONABLE THICKETTES! WE SPEND SO MUCH MONEY AT THE MORE POPULARÂ QUEEN SIZEÂ CLOTHING LINESÂ BUT AT B & LU YOU CAN BUY A WHOLE OUTFITÂ UNDER $100.00!
