Both a Brooklyn-based store and an online retailer, Plus Bklyn was created in order to cover the gap of New York not having any retail locations specifically for size 14-plus women. "Of the limited plus options available, almost all of them were online only or the fit was off, often poor or matronly and designed to hide my shape. I was really shocked that in all of New York City I couldn't seem to find hip, fun, edgy or youthful options — or really any options at all other than the big box chain stores. I knew there were many fashion conscious women just like me, and because no other boutique or store was meeting that need I thought, 'Hell, I'll do it myself,'" Alexis Krase, the founder, explained.
