Our Story

Curve Conscious was a Best of Philly 2019 winner and was ranked one of the best thrift/consignment stores in the Delaware Valley by 6ABC Action News in 2020! Since closing our Philadelphia brick and mortar location in 2021, Curve Conscious has become an online only space for shopping and selling secondhand plus-size clothes for sizes 14 to 28+. You'll love it because we celebrate the diverse shapes and sizes of our customers while also promoting a more sustainable way to shop.

Since we began this journey in 2016, Curve Conscious' mission has been to provide a unique experience in a welcoming and fun environment for plus-size people to shop and sell gently used and stylish items at reasonable prices.

What we buy/sell

Curve Conscious offers trendy and stylish apparel, shoes and accessories for sizes 14 to 28+.  Because every item is hand selected, we're able to offer the best brands and styles in contemporary plus-size fashion at a fraction of the retail price! We purchase the items based on condition, trend, style and brand.

Here are some general rules about how we buy items:
1. Items should be gently used or never worn
2. Items should be clean and free of stains, cigarette smoke, pet hair and human hair
3. Items should be in season
4. Items should be on trend, in style, and purchased within the past 1-3 years
