Share The average woman is a size 16 these days, but finding fashions to fit her curvy frame can be a true sitruggle.

Celebrity stylist Shun Melson says the difficulty of finding fab threads for her gospel-singing client Tasha Cobbs inspired her to create a solution.

“It was the most difficult shopping experience I ever had -- there wasn’t anything cute in stores for her size,” Melson explained to Billboard of the issue she ran into in 2014.

But instead of giving up, the determined fashionista did some digging around for clothing for full-figured women. That’s when she found wholesalers in L.A., created an online boutique for plus-size women desiring trendy pieces.

She is also the creator of the popular v-neck GOD tee inspired by Google’s colorful logo. Under the search box, the shirt says, “Provides directions and all answers.”

In an interview with Rolling Out the tastemaker said, your must-haves are: a black blazer, white shirt, black slacks, leather jacket, black skirt, a pair of quality pumps, and a good handbag. 

“You can build your entire wardrobe around these pieces,” according to Melson.
