(My) Plus Size Store in Toronto Now Open!: Your Big Sister's Closet

Hey Guys,

I know I've been super quiet lately, but it's because I've been working on my most amazing project yet! I opened my very own plus size clothing store in Toronto called Your Big Sister's Closet on December 24th. We've been working on this since about the beginning of October, and there were many delays (we were hoping to be open for the Christmas shopping season) but we're finally open now and so elated that everything has come together so wonderfully. People are always asking me how I came up with the name, and I picked it because I want the space to be really comfortable and relaxed, but with lots of really awesome stuff, just like browsing through a big sister's closet. I have two older sisters whose closets I always envied, but I could never borrow clothes from them because they're so much smaller than me. I wanted to make a store that other women can come to and feel comfortable, and find clothes that make them look and feel great - clothes they're excited about! Since we've opened our doors, we've had many straight-size women come through saying that they love what we're selling and it's too bad we don't carry their size. I think this means we're doing something right! If even women who can shop anywhere want to shop here, I've done my job! I want you all to be excited to put on clothes you get here. That's also how I came up with the tagline - "Plus Size Clothing for the Uncompromising Woman." I thought I'd share a few photos of my new Canadian plus size clothing store in Toronto so you can check us out. The web store is open now but will be undergoing a major make-over soon. If you're looking for plus size clothing in Toronto, I would be so happy if you came by to visit and shop =) We're at 3126 Dundas Street West in Toronto.


























So what do you all think of my labour of love?

I love it....i may not be plus sized anymore, but i still need wide calf boots and it looks like you've got a few in store! Also the aesthetic of the store is gorgeous, and your accessories are gorgeous!

It's a great little shop! I actually did a review of it right after I left last night, here you go: http://wp.me/pHTWk-qt

It only occurred to me after I got home that I should have taken some photos! D'oh!

I can't wait to wear that dress out....

First and foremost, congratulations on this venture! It is a feat in itself being a business owner and it is great see that you took a leap towards your dreams!

Secondly, this store looks wonderful! I hope that in the summer, when I take my planned trip to Toronto, I can pop in and shop some goodies!

All the best to go and good luck with everything!

Hi there! The store looks lovely and
I hope to visit soon. I was wondering what kind of size range you carry and what your price points are like(is everything similar to your online store)?

I hope to add a pin to Canada this year on my travel map and your spot will definitely be one that I have to hit.
