Suzanne also shared that when she first began to research the market 9 years ago there were a handful of plus-size boutiques online and brick & mortar and today there are 97 businesses offering “plus-sizes”.
“The plus-size market is booming on the island but we still have a long way to go.” – Suzanne Ujaque
