When we started The Big Bloomers Company back in 2007 we had no intention of manufacturing. All we ever intended was to supply plus size lingerie – we were to be a link in the chain – the middle man.
A big surprise awaited us. Whilst loads of wholesalers and retailers were boasting that they made/supplied plus size lingerie up to size 6XL (UK dress size 28/30) this was not, in fact, the case.
