Jaclyn McCabe, founder of The Voluptuous Vixen in New Orleans, sought to design a store with her distinctive sense of style. For eight years, McCabe filled her shop with fashionable clothing. She scoured showrooms from Los Angles to New York to London, resulting in a fashion forward boutique filled with and coming designers.
Melissa Masse, founder of Masse Made to Measure in Los Angles, began her love affair with dressing women of all sizes in gorgeous ensembles in 2000. Her reputation for “custom-made” clothing for everyday wear quickly got the attention of celebrities, stylist and professionals. Her designs possess a unique combination of custom tailoring that is well made and well fitting on every size and frame. The ready to wear collection, Melissa Masse, is sold in boutiques world wide as well as to celebrities such as Oprah, Melissa McCartney, Rosie O’Donnell and Amber Riley.
Together they launched McCabe + Masse in the spring of 2013. An online multi-brand boutique, designed especially for woman sizes 10 and up. The well-edited assortment is both stylish and wearable bringing a sophisticated aesthetic to the plus size shopper.
Besides their own label, which offers customers feminine comfortable clothing at an attainable price point, McCabe + Masse carries designers Anna Scholz, David Meister, Cookie Johnson, Rachel Palley and Melissa Masse. The duo sets itself apart by offering exclusive designer product in a broader range than any other retailer.
