Go2Bras.com and Lipo In a Box by Connie Elder
For women who want to improve their confidence and appearance, Connie Elder has combined her 20 years experience in the medical and skin care industries to develop high-quality, science-inspired lifestyle product lines for real women that offer slimming shapewear, comfortable undergarments and anti-aging skin care.
Started in 2000, the company now known as Connie Elder International is continuously developing and marketing products to help all women in our "QUEST TO LOOK OUR BEST!" Our focus is on foundations. Skincare, shapewear, intimates, etc. are usually not seen by others, yet these important products provide the foundation for the image of yourself presented to the world each day.
OSE (uh-seh). "Vintage Clothing with an emphasis on Curve"
Ose (Uh-Seh) pronounced “Uh-Seh” is a consignment line offering vintage wear with an emphasis on curve. Ose (Uh-Seh) searches the country to find one-of-a-kind pieces that brings a vivacious and unique assortment to the plus-size woman. Because of the lack of vintage wear representation for plus-size women, Ose (Uh-Seh) reconstructs vintage pieces from her finds to fit curvy women sizes 12-22. Offering these pieces at an affordable price allows curvy women to take advantage of the stylish attire they cannot find anywhere else.
