Letter from the CEO
If you're reading this, chances are you're one of the millions of women who are really frustrated with the experience of trying to shop for clothing. I know exactly how that feels.
My name is Cynthia, the founder and CEO of AbbeyPost. I'm a plus size woman who also happens to be 5'1" and really curvy. I probably don't have to tell you how much trouble I have always had trying to find things that really fit well, and were attractive, versatile and well made.
I founded this company because I was sick of having no idea what size to buy, hassling with mailing back returns, and with the poor quality of most plus size clothing.The truth is, traditional retail ignores the needs of the Plus Size consumer. Shopping for Plus Size clothing can be really frustrating. Sizing varies widely from brand to brand. Retailers are pulling Plus Size out of stores. There are very few places talk about and enjoy fashion if you're above a size 10. And so on.
We want to change all that.
* AbbeyPost has created a line of beautiful, affordable, fully custom clothing at a price point similar to what you'd pay at Macy's or Bloomingdales for a mass-manufactured item.
* AbbeyPost is a positive environment where women of all shapes and sizes enjoy a highly personal shopping experience, and find the right fit the first time!
* We're dedicated to delivering the absolute best customer service humanly possible. And we promise to listen to you. Always.
* Our products are custom made for you, made with love in the USA, delivered in 2 weeks or less, at department store prices.
Want more information about How It Works? We use the power of advanced data technology and cutting-edge CAD patterning systems to create custom made to measure women's apparel scalably, cost-effectively, and quickly. We've made significant investments into developing technology, computer and manufacturing hardware, and partnerships, so that we can deliver the items you want, at a price you can afford, in the size and shape that fits YOU.
For customers who feel that their bodies don't require a precise custom fit, we've also introduced standard sizes 2-28 in every product we make. You simply choose an item you like, then customize the neckline, sleeve length and hem to your individual preferences. That’s all there is to it!
Thank you for being a part of AbbeyPost! We're so happy you're here.
