The Pink Duchess and our Founder Tracy...
I started The Pink Duchess or TPD as I sometimes refer to it, out of need. Like my customers, I’m a fashionista with large breasts [34H] and a large behind. There are a ton of fashionable ready-to-wear options for my figure. However, my lingerie wardrobe wasn’t reflective of my outerwear style.
In the traditional market place, most specialty lingerie or department stores didn’t stock my size. And if they did, they only offered black, white or nude. And embellishments consisted of “a bow” or a “tiny flower” between the cups.
I refused to believe I was doomed to spend the rest of my life in bland “underwear”. I made it my mission to change that narrative. Designing wasn’t an option...I’m not that creative. Instead, I searched the internet and discovered a lingerie world I never knew existed. Imagine the look on my face when I realized I was finally able to build my dream lingerie wardrobe.
It was my mother’s idea to start the website. She reminded me I wasn’t the only large busted fashionista looking for pretty lingerie in her size. She was right. I asked her to help me and we went to work.
I knew I wanted a place for large busted, curvy women to shop for fine lingerie. It didn’t happen over night, but eventually, The Pink Duchess was born.
My mission is to give large busted fashionistas the same lingerie options their less endowed sisters have...pretty and elegant lingerie in their size.
