“Forgotten Woman” Owner Remembered
The New York Times has reported that Nancye Radmin, who launched the plus size chain store The Forgotten Woman, passed away on Dec. 8 in Lakeland, Fla. She was 82.
Radmin started the company in 1976 out of necessity when she sought high-end fashion in her size (16). In 20 years, there were more than 20 shops across the U.S.
Her advances in the plus size community will live on, as high-end plus size stores are now part of the retail landscape.
