Style to Fit Your Curves Shopping Event
Lola & Gigi fashion boutique is on a mission to help Ottawa women feel beautiful and confident about their curves!
Glamour Magazine’s September issue hit the stands and shook the world. When readers turned to page 194 they saw something rare in a fashion magazine – a model with a pot belly. The photograph shows plus-size model Lizzie Miller smiling broadly, looking confident in her own skin, as her stomach hangs out over her underwear.
The magazine was flooded with emails and letters of praise from readers. The attention that this small picture generated proves that it’s time for curvy to be brought to the fashion forefront.
Frustrated with the fashion options for curvy women, Laura Caravaggio opened the Canadian weboutique, Lola & Gigi. The boutique based in Toronto caters to women sizes 12-24 and strives to help their clients feel fabulous no matter what their shape or size.
The Lola & Gigi collection features the latest in fashion for the curvaceous woman and is hand-picked for quality and top design. At http://www.lolaandgigi.com you can expect to find a flattering look for every lifestyle – designer business casual, sportswear, active wear, evening wear and outerwear.
The online fashion boutique prides itself on carrying top Canadian and American designers like, Anna Scholz, Melissa Masse, Kiyonna, Igigi, David Kahn Jeanswear, Tummy Tuck Jeans and MonifC.
“When you’re curvy it’s hard to find unique clothing that fits perfectly and makes you feel fabulous! I want to make fashion available to curvy women all over Canada and that’s why I started the Lola & Gigi weboutique. While Lola & Gigi is in Ottawa for the Style to Fit Your Curves Shopping Event, ladies will be able to find a look that makes them feel beautiful – no matter what their shape and size.” – Laura Caravaggio, owner of Lola & Gigi

About Lola & Gigi:
Lola & Gigi owner, Laura Caravaggo – The question that I’m often asked is…
“Are you Lola or Gigi?”
I’m both! Some days I’m Lola. And some days I’m Gigi. And some days I’m someone somewhere in between. And it is so wonderful for me to have the opportunity to figure that out for myself everyday by going into my closet and finding that perfect thing to wear. I love clothes and I love helping people transform themselves through their clothing. When I see someone put something on that fits them perfectly, I can just see the difference it makes. They glow! The size on the label suddenly ceases to exist and they are in their element.
That’s why I created LolaandGigi.com – a weboutique specializing in fabulous clothing in sizes 12-24. I chose the name Lola & Gigi because I love the retro feeling of the names and it brought me back to a time when curves were coveted! Lola to me is sexy and sophisticated, like Sophia Loren and Gina Lollobrigida – confident and loving her curves. Gigi is fresh and fun and isn’t afraid of playing with colour and pattern to produce something spectacular and unique.

Love this article! Just recently came across the Lola and Gigi site and they have fabulous clothing. Unfortunately, I am on a clothing recession, but when it’s over, look out, they will definitely have me as a customer!
