CUYAHOGA FALLS — The Hourglass Boutique, located at 416 Chestnut Blvd., is a one-year-old consignment shop for plus-size women.

Owner Sandy Brown said the consignment shop is the only consignment store in the area dedicated to plus-size women.

“Every woman deserves to look and feel fabulous,” said Brown. “We offer an amazing selection of upscale clothing for women sizes 14W to 6X, as well as accessories that fit their fashion sense and their frames. We have everything from bathing suits to bridal wear.”

Brown added the store has brand name items from Coach, CJ Banks, Liz Claiborne and more, as well as other better quality brands.

The shop offers gently used business attire and casual clothing, with many spring items now available. Items range from blouses, skirts and dresses to jeans, sweaters and coats.

In addition, the Hourglass Boutique has numerous new and gently used wedding gowns, bridesmaid gowns and mother-of-the-bride and -groom dresses, as well as prom formals, according to Brown. Accessories to match are also sold at the store, and the shop offers on-the-premises alterations to ensure a great fit of these gently used items.

Brown said customers often find a recent purchase means they also need some new accessories to match their new outfit. Brown said the Hourglass Boutique carries a wide selection of accessories, such as wallets, purses, handbags, silk scarves, hats, jewelry that ranges from “funky and fun to chic,” sunglasses and both casual and formal shoes that include summer sandals to boots in sizes up to 13.

Brown said the store’s content is constantly changing. The Boutique’s Facebook page displays new arrivals, special sales and other announcements, and fun fashion tips.

The store also offers a unique service to help customers find something specific.

“If you don’t see what you’re looking for, let us know and we’ll put the word out to our network of friends on Facebook. We can often find exactly what you’re seeking within a day,” said Brown.

The Hourglass Boutique is accepting clothing on consignment. All items must be clean and in good condition. Brown suggests customers visit the website at www.thehourglassboutique.com and click on “Contact Us” for information on consignment guidelines.
