Episode 23: Cat Polivoda, Cake Plus Size Resale, & Building a Business that Serves the Fat Community

“Or I could just say whatever and open a plus size thrift shop…” 

What do you do when you’re a fashion-forward, business-minded woman who is fed up by how difficult plus size shopping can be? You create something different.

That’s what Cat Polivoda did when she created Cat’s Closet. It started with just selling her own clothes to people she knew and grew into its own website and then a better website and now she has her sights set on brick-and-mortar. With a new name, Cake Plus Size Resale, and a surging crowdfunding campaign, Cat is well on her way to providing the fat positive shopping experience and community space of her dreams.
