We have spoken about how we started Sisterly Curves due to our weight-loss journey, selling our own clothes…..but before that journey began it was a whole different style of business.
We’ve both been in finance & customer service for what seems like forever, even though we were not mathematical in school…..far from it. I studied english, art, interior & architectural design & Sandra was more into sports so definitely NO maths.
However we knew we wanted to run our own business though & we love fashion. Selling clothes it was to be.
So with our customers service experience we would make it a priority understanding our customers needs & also using our own past experiences
We bought some sample plus size clothes from various wholesalers to see what the quality & sizing would be like, we were not impressed.
The business idea went on the back burner for a little while, okay maybe a few years cause you know life, 9-5 got in the way 🙄
We then started our weight loss journey & since we didn’t need our own clothes anymore we thought why not sell them for some extra cash to go towards our new wardrobes.
Those days were interesting - photos of clothes hanging off plastic coat hangers on the back of the bedroom door & selling on EBay…..
When we seen how many people were interested in our preloved clothes, it was like having a lightbulb moment, especially as it was around the same time I had to cut back on my work hours having been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
So we PIVOTED!!
🌟New to old! (preloved clothes) & online.
🌟Mannequin & styling replaced coat hangers on doors
Just a side note, we’re currently looking for ‘plus size’ women in Perth to model our clothes so if you’re interested DM us! 😊
So it was out with the NEW clothes ‘Loved Curves Boutique’ & in with the OLD preloved clothes ‘Sisterly Curves’.
Plus it made sense, we both love preloved/ secondhand shopping 💁🏼♀️
When we first started Sisterly Curves we never thought we’d be where we are now.
🌱We also didn’t expect to be featured in a magazine about circular/ ethical fashion.
🌱Meet the people we have met along the way who have helped us & believed in what we do.
🌱 New branding with a new name plus a website!
🌱New skills that we would collect along our journey
We were just a couple sisters that had an idea we wanted to explore & have the flexibility majority of us crave. 👯♀️
