A couple of months ago, I had the pleasure of meeting with a young man who was very passionate about creating jeans to fit women with curvaceous figures. He said that his wife, a beautiful full-figured woman, inspired him initially. Then he began to learn about how much of a problem full-figured women were having finding jeans that didn’t have a gaping space at the waist or other issues that didn’t fit their curves. That young man has launched “Milk & Cookey Jeans”, the cure for our Blue jean blues! Read on to learn more about this fantastic company:
NY: So, tell us about yourself:-). What’s your name, and how long have you been designing jeans for full-figured women?
M&C: Ty Carson is my name, and I’ve been designing since 2006. I started designing denim jeans for women in 2008.
NY: I love the name “Milk & Cookey” :-). How did you come up with it?
M&C: Ahh, the name (I get this question all the time). It is my belief that in order to have a great product, the product must assemble a trendy, or catchy name. I wanted a name that identifies with and delivers fun, sexiness, youth, vibrance, and sophistication. When someone hears the name Milk & Cookey, the first thing that comes to mind is milk and cookies. So, your mind instantly takes you to thoughts of a delicious treat. Everyone loves milk and cookies. We know milk and cookies come in a variety of flavors and shapes. The Milk & Cookey brand highly appreciates and nourishes diversity.
NY: I know that as a full-figured woman, finding a pair of jeans that fit can be VERY difficult, especially when you have a smaller waistline and wider hips. What makes your jeans the best fitting jeans for curvy women?
M&C: Milk & Cookey Jeans are designed to satisfy women with various curves. You can line up multiple women who wear a size 14 and each of them is proportionally different. We’ve tested a manifold of figures and found that Milk & Cookey Jeans accommodate women with various curvaceous figures. Our team of tech designers has invested an enormous amount of energy and resources into the Milk & Cookey fit. Milk and Cookey Jeans are designed with a wider, tapered waistband, a wider hip and thigh to accommodate a woman’s curves, and a higher back rise to keep her personal business personal. Milk & Cookey Jeans are crafted with love and made in the USA with high quality fabrics and just the right amount of stretch. We promote “NO SPACE @ THE WAIST”. THERE’S NO FIT, LIKE THE MILK&COOKEY FIT !
NY: I’m all about keeping my personal business personal! I like that:-)! LOL! Where do you see Mlik & Cookey Jeans 5 years from now? Will you ever make other clothing items for curvy women?
M&C: At the moment our focus is solely on denim jeans, but I do have plans for the future. Perhaps I may expand the brand to a slender fit for women with straighter bodies. If the opportunity presents itself, I’d love to venture out into the accessories market. Eyewear, fragrances, and footwear are all a passion of mine.
NY: Where can my readers go to purchase these awesome jeans?
M&C: We’ve partnered with EBay, so you can now purchase your Milk & Cookey Jeans there. More retailers are coming soon!
NY: AWESOME! Ladies, make sure you pick up a pair:-)! Ty, thanks so much for speaking with us today.
M&C: You’re welcome and thank you!
