1. Please JO, tell our readers briefly WHEN, HOW, WHERE or in WHICH circumstances we met?
We met Roseline many years ago when she was looking to redesign her website. We have 2 branches to our business, operating Cuddles and Curves Lingerie online store and also designing websites (billelphick.com) for clients and Roseline, you approached us due to word of mouth recommendation.
2. Since then, could you share what is the most interesting Feng Shui result that you have experienced?
One of the “fringe benefits” of knowing Roseline is that we have absorbed so much wonderful advice and wisdom from her. We have completed courses she has run and found great improvements in our day-to-day life and in our business due to Roseline’s Feng Shui priniciples and teachings.
3. Let’s talk more about you now JO… Tell us a little about yourself and your business
Our webdesign work and experience gave us lots of skills and this resulted in the Cuddles and Curves Lingerie webiste and e-commerce in 1999.
4. What are the five words that people would use to describe cuddles and curves.com.au?
easy, exciting, beautiful, raunchy & quality.
5. What was the purpose on starting your CUDDLES AND CURVES business and how has the concept come about?
Cuddles and Curves came about because we identified a need for a comprehensive lingerie store, providing high quality apparel in a wide range of sizes so that women of all sizes are catered to (Australian sizes from size 6 to 26). We had been disappointed to find that comprehensize ranges of lingerie in Small to Plus sizes were not readily available online at the time. As the business has been operating since 1999, and we have continued to fine-tune our website, lines of lingerie and customer service, we have built up a loyal clientele and continued to garner new clients around Australia and the world as a result of this excellent service.
6. What are the most common issues of people who come to see you for advice?
Amongst our lingerie clients, many have had bad experiences, either when buying items (or attempting to do so) in person at stores or they have had less than adequate service online at some other stores.
Quite often their reasons for dissatisfaction elsewhere have concerned their feeling that perhaps because they were a “plus size” person, they were not catered to in the lingerie range or that they were not valued in the same way as “regular” size patrons by the stores.
We have a strongly held belief that all women, regardless of their size, are beautiful and deserve the same access to beautiful apparel.
Sourcing a wide range is not always easy but we have gone out of our way to cater for all sizes. Not only that, but we feel that customer care should form a major part of the service provided. To that end, we are always happy to discuss our client’s needs and help them in making a decision on what to buy, via our website. After sales support, assistance with choosing the correct size garment and an inclusive and helpful manner are of optimum importance to us to ensure that clients feel satisfied and valued.
