In a world were beauty is stereotyped to fit into particular standards, Blessing Mary Ramodisa makes a difference as she provides a solution to lingerie needs of curvaceous women. Her company, Hugs & Intimates, was founded following personal experiences of finding it difficult to get lingerie that would fit her
In her words, “As a big girl I have always struggled to get clothing sizes and underwear that looked great. In most cases I would get a mismatch of underwear and it saddened me.” Seeing the gap in.the market, Blessing decided to be the change that she wanted to see.
Now Hugs&Intimates provides specialized services to clients who want to get the perfect fit for lingerie but still want to go about their normal business by getting their measurements and helping them find a variety of items to choose from.
What gives Blessing the most joy as an entrepreneur is the smile on people’s faces when they see help on its way.
Blessing’s dream is to manufacture her products from scratch as she believes this will help her clients who still struggle with cup sizes.
