Best Boutique for Larger Women - 2001
OK, ladies, this one's for all you women who are large and in charge and tired of waiting for clothing designers to recognize you exist. Is it too much to ask for great designs that don't forget that women come in all shapes and sizes? Since opening its doors, Harper Greer's clothing lines have featured classic designs and sleek cuts for the working woman size 14 and up. "We're often asked by well-dressed women in size 6, who stop to admire our storefront windows, to have the clothing made in their size," says John Kiskaddon, president of Harper Greer. "Of course, we're flattered, but we have to tell them our clothes are designed for the size 14 to 28 figure." Harper Greer knows that today's women of substance don't need clothes with hokey frills or glitter, just garments that fit well and look great.
