WYV: How do you describe your style?

Jamie Lopez: My style is sexy, glam, bold and fearless!

WYV: What inspired your clothing company?

JL: Babydoll Beauty Couture was born in 2012 and it’s my heart and soul! I was inspired to create a salon that catered to the plus-size woman for all our beauty needs! Because there is no place like it in the world! My chairs are specialty crafted for women up to 800 lbs, so us plus-size women can feel comfortable that we have a salon chair that fits our needs. Our clothing line is couture for the plus-size woman. We can have a glamorous dress, lingerie or swimwear that is sexy, trendy and in our size … not just limited to clothing that looks like our grandmother’s curtains!

WYV: Where do you shop?

JL: I normally make all my clothes, but if I do need to shop I go to Torrid because they are super trendy. However, I make a practice to only wear my brand, Babydoll Couture.

WYV: How do you wear your voice?

JL: I wear my voice loud and proud! As a plus-size entrepreneur, I’m often discriminated against. That makes it even more important for me to push forward daily and break down the walls and barriers for all plus-size women. By remaining fearless and confident on a daily basis, I remain fabulous and I continue to make a bold statement.
