Meet Tasheka Washington

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tasheka Washington.  

Hi Tasheka, so excited to have you on the platform. So, before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
Curvy Girl Dreams Boutique was created by a curvy girl who was frustrated with the lack of curvy representation in our affordable fashion industry. I wanted to create a place where all curvy bodies are celebrated and styled properly. There is an unfortunate stigma that curvy and plus-sized women, can’t be sexy and proud of themselves. It’s important to me to ensure that everyone who encounters Curvy Girl Dreams Boutique feels appreciated, comfortable and fearless. 

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
It hasn’t been a perfect road but I wouldn’t change anything about it. Building a brand and a business takes a lot of patience, time, energy, support, money, and prayer. It can definitely get discouraging, especially when we are in a world that doesn’t fully celebrate the women you are fighting for. I’ve had to work hard to overcome feelings of fear and doubt on this journey but trusting in God and believing in his plan for my life and my business has made the struggle easier. 

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I am the owner of Curvy Girl Dreams Boutique and we celebrate sizes 1x-4x. I am known for my sexy and body-positive pieces that allow curvy women to look and feel sexy. Whether you’re on your way to dominating the board room, leading worship on Sunday, having a date night, or girls’ night, Curvy Girl Dreams Boutique has something for you. I am most proud of the body positive mission we have as a boutique. There is no such thing as a right or wrong body type. Your body is the perfect type. We embrace that and celebrate it. What sets Curvy Girl Dreams Boutique apart from others, is the fact that it was created by a plus-sized woman. I’ve lived the life of having to shop at stores that aged you with their selections. I’ve dealt with the struggle of not having styles that truly compliment you or having to wear several undergarments to have it come close to being presentable. I know the importance of fabrics, stretch percentages, and how they will work with the proper undergarments. I’ve lived through all of the sizes (12-34). There’s almost nothing I haven’t personally tried or had to experience when it comes to curvy fashion. I can fully relate, that’s what sets us apart from others.
