Big in Japan (literally)

Hi friends,

As promised, I was able to upload the video clip from our extraordinarily cool segment on NHK Japanese TV's show "El Mundo", as part of the Plus Size Model show. My amazing pal Ayako translated it on the fly as this:

"Now, designers specializing in plus sizes are succeeding. Just making regular sized dresses bigger doesn't make plus size body lines look beautiful. Eden Miller is a designer that is known for accentuating the plus size body lines. She doesn't just make the dresses bigger, she crafts her dresses by generously adding lines to different parts of the dress." The title on the lower left says: "Full-sized women are popular / The front line of plus size fashion".

Multilingual friends are the best, aren't they? In any case, enjoy!

All the best, Eden

More stores, including New York and New Orleans!

Hello friends,

It's been such a great ride so far since these dresses have hit the market. I'm so very excited that as they get more attention, more stores want to carry them, and then you, my dear reader, can actually see, touch (and buy) them!

This week brought some amazing things: NHK Japanese TV show "El Mundo" shot a segment about us while we were still in production, and it aired this past week, showing us in the factory! I'm currently trying to figure out how to get the segment trimmed to show you just us, since the show is an hour long. Very cool and Cabiria looks great!

Now the best news - I love independent plus size boutiques, and I'm thrilled that Cabiria is now in 2 more of them! New Orleans ladies, The Voluptuous Vixen in the French Quarter has Cabiria in stock in the next few days, and my New York City sisters, Curvaceous K on the Lower East Side has Cabiria on the racks as we speak. Here's a shot of what landed at Curvaceous K before she even had a chance to put them on pretty hangers:

To add to the fun, Stephanie Sack at Vive la femme in Chicago made a video showing off the new shipment of Cabiria dresses as well. Check out the great video!

And don't forget Bombshell Boutique in St. Paul, and everywhere on Madison Plus Select and Pionna and of course on our Cabiria website as well. If there's an item you want to try on from the website, TALK TO YOUR RETAILER and ask them to order it in for you. I'm perfectly willing to work with stores this way, and it helps create a network of customer, store, and manufacturer. Conversation!

Finally, I'd really really appreciate it if everyone could "Like" the Cabiria Facebook page. It's important to be able to get information out on the business without it all feeding through my personal account, and it helps promote the brand as a whole. PLEASE "Like" us, and if you have ideas on how to get more Likes, please let me know. Thank you all and go shop!

All the best, Eden

Now in Chicago!

Hello friends,

I'm just sending out a quick note today to let you know that a big shipment of Cabiria dresses is going to be landing on store shelves at Vive La Femme in Chicago in a few days, so you lucky folks in the Chicago area can go check out the goods yourselves!

Also, Cabiria is now going to be stocked through Pionna, a Seattle based plus size e-commerce site as well. Don't forget about Bombshell Boutique in St. Paul, MN and Madison Plus Select! More ways to get your hands on Cabiria dresses, now that the weather is about to turn towards springtime and fresh frocks. Exciting!

Have fun and think of spring,

Cabiria Available Online and In (a few) Stores Now!

Hello friends,

It's been pretty busy here at Cabiria HQ since we received delivery from the factory. We're now on the rack at Bombshell Boutique in St. Paul, MN, and Madison Plus Select has an exclusive Cabiria line rolling out as we speak. I've sent an order off to a plus size celebrity for a new CBS television show (hush hush until it airs!), and gotten a LOT of inquiries on how to get these dresses. It's really exciting!

This is where you come in as a community. If you know of a plus size boutique that should carry our dresses, please show them the Online Store at, where all our availability stock is currently listed. If you are a retailer with a desire to stock us, let us know. We have a couple of different structures available for wholesale, drop shipment, and memo terms. If there's a style and pattern that you want exclusively for your shop, you create exclusivity by reserving or purchasing the whole run of that item - not prohibitive, in reality. I really, really want to work with you to get these dresses in your hot little hands! Help me help you.

I know that the price point is higher than some of the pieces on the market, but it's actually priced low for what they are - sumptuous fabrics, designed specifically for the plus size body, made in the USA, and in small, unique quantities. I want you to try them on to feel the difference in quality and the details that make it fit so well and wear for years. That means that you need to make sure retailers know they can sell what they bring into their shops. You, yes, you, the consumer, have that power. Heady, isn't it?

Finally, *here are a few Cabiria dresses currently and exclusively available on the Madison Plus Select website. Go get 'em, folks!

All the best, Eden
