E48 – Adrienne Ray – The Only Plus Sized Consignment Shop in Philly

Curve Conscious owner Adrienne Ray has lived in the Philadelphia area for 17 years and is a graduate of Temple University, where she received her degree in Advertising. For more than a decade she had a career as a copywriter, working for well known brands such as Bank of America and Mars Chocolate.

Adrienne’s passions include food, photography and fashion. Knowing what it takes to be different and stand out in a crowd and having been frustrated for years with local consignment, resale and thrift shops for their lack of plus size clothing options, Adrienne decided it was time to give what curvy women all across Philadelphia have been waiting for – a place to buy, sell, and swap contemporary and trendy plus-size apparel, shoes and accessories at a fraction of retail prices.

“Everyone deserves stylish and affordable clothes, but plus size women have little options, especially when it comes to resale.” Adrienne explains. “That’s why Curve Conscious was created, to provide an exclusive space where plus size women can feel safe and comfortable while they shop for and sell gently used items.
