These clothes change lives. EVERYDAY.

When I worked my tail off to walk again to the point to return to work on a super limited schedule, I started doing her hair in trade for LuLaRoe. We would talk marketing and advertising, since my job was promoting my business for 20 years. I started to think “I could do that”. It would be the perfect fit as my new normal was preventing me from working the long 14 hour days standing. So after debating for a over a year (not joking), I pulled the trigger.

Today, I am looking at celebrating my 3rd Lulaversary while at convention, and I am so grateful not only for the leggings that saved my life, but also for the job that helped me find myself again, and give me a new hope and focus. Now, I get to motivate women, help them feel beautiful, and be a driving force in many people’s lives to help them find their strength and confidence everyday. I also want to thank you on behalf of curvy women everywhere.

For years I have walked the plus-size sections and was so depressed. The sections are so small and not fashion forward or on trend at all. We struggle to find things that fit us and are made to shop in our own sections and back areas of stores. These clothes change lives. Everyday. I see women Light up and feel what I felt when I bought an Amelia after not wearing dresses AT ALL for 20+ years. I see it in their faces and it rocks me to my core EVERYTIME.

You have no idea what you’re doing for them. I am more than honored to say that I have got to model for a few photo shoots and represent these women. I, more than anything, want them to know they can feel confident, beautiful and worthy. Again, thank you for giving that to them. It’s more than just clothes. It’s a movement, it’s awesome, incredible, and I’m honored to be a part of it. This company not only saved my legs, but saved my life in one of the darkest times and I am forever grateful.

"On October 10, 2014 I woke up paralyzed from the waist down. Yes, I woke up that way. I had back pain off and on for a few weeks and felt nauseous, but didn’t think much of it until that day. I went to the emergency room and they ran test after test resulting in inconclusive.

I was sent weeks later for a full brain and spine MRI after my first was only of my lumbar spine and missed my damaged area. It was that scan that gave me the news that I had Transverse Myelitis and spinal cord damage (it’s exactly like MS but instead of deteriorating your body over years, it does all the damage at one time) My world was rocked.

I was a full time hairstylist and worked for Redken, traveling and teaching thousands of people color correction and business. And here I was frozen. Unable to even go to the bathroom or walk on my own. I also have severe nerve damage that leaves my legs feeling like I’m being attacked by red ants if they’re exposed to air.

While laying in bed one night searching for compression stockings, I thought I would search leggings. They seemed they might work. So I searched “plus size fun leggings” and up popped LuLaRoe. So I went to Facebook and typed LuLaRoe Temecula.

Up popped up a lady named Stefani. Well, I reached out to Stefani and asked if she had any fun plus size leggings, since it looked as if I’d be wearing them daily, and I needed to smile at this point. She sent me pictures and I purchased two pairs from her (paper airplanes and paisley). I brought them home and they were instant relief on my legs. I contacted her for more and she became my regular “dealer”.

I am so grateful not only for the leggings that saved my life, but also for the job that helped me find myself again, and give me a new hope and focus.
