AbbeyPost is a brand-new marketplace and community designed exclusively for plus size women’s fashion!
Shopping is an inherently social activity, but for over 100 million plus size women in the US, there’s just no fun place to socialize while shopping. We plan to change that.
We’ve built a two-way marketplace where individuals, retailers and brands can “Post” their items for sale, buyers can “Peek” and “Purchase” the items, and Post-ers can “Play” in our forums. Think “ebay for plus size”, except awesome. We’ve only been live for about a month and are already seeing strong interest both from the user community and the investment community.
AbbeyPost is based in New York City and is a woman-founded company. In fact, at the moment, 75% of our team members are female–including our lead developer. Hooray for girls who code!
The AbbeyPost team is always on the lookout for the next great connection, resource, idea or team member, so if you’re interested in what we’re doing, we definitely want to hear from you!
The women’s plus size fashion marketplace is amazingly underserved, yet represents over 60% of American women–that’s over 100 million women with no place to enjoy shopping! Now, we all know women love to shop, but do you know how much we love to shop? A LOT.
The plus size market represents $18 billion annually in the US, and a much larger number worldwide.
We’re working hard on creating not only a great shopping experience, but a strong social network effect, with plenty of informative and beautiful content, social sharing triggers, incentives and coupons and much more.
We’re an early stage startup with a small team but a lot of hustle. We may be selling to plus size women, but as a team we run lean and mean. We’re experienced entrepreneurs,
We’re excited about bringing on some awesome new advisors who will be announced soon. We are also working on partnering with several brands for exclusive online sales of their plus size apparel.
We believe that the winning combination for us is: previous experience building successful ecommerce startups; an intimate knowledge of the plus size consumer; a deep passion for addressing this very real need in the marketplace; and a whole lot of listening, learning, adjusting and optimizing through direct conversation with our wonderful “Post-ers” (users)!
